Both of these little books contain three atmospheric short stories, perfect for autumnal evenings. The winner will also get Mary Shelley tea (a lavender and vanilla black tea) from Rosie Lea Tea's Literary Tea Collection (https://www.rosieleatea.co.uk/collections/literary-tea-collection) and a chocolate skull, to really get that spooky atmosphere .   and...   A special treat for a special month. The winner will choose one of the following recent paperback releases from the independent bookshop Big Green Bookshop:       The Wych Elm by Tana French A House of Ghosts by W.C. Ryan Melmoth by Sarah Perry The Familiars by Stacey Halls  The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White   The winner will be chosen via the usual random selection process in one week. Patreon supporters are entered automatically.

What Are You Watching Now? - 2017

Recommended Posts

Still watching ST:TNG also, Gaia! :smile:  Only on season 2 though. 

We watched Hunted, so far only one season, but I believe another is in the making.  Probably won't be available over here for a year or so though.  Good spy story about a woman that is betrayed, takes off a year, then comes back to find out who the culprit is.  Very twisty, one never knows who or what to trust.

Finished watching the first seasons of This is Us and Timeless which were pretty good. Also finished Catastrophe. Fab series & excellent last performance from Carrie Fisher. :) 

 

Started watching the latest series of Line of Duty. So far so good.

 

I am not a fan of crime drama but I really like Line Of Duty.

 

Peter Kay's Car Share. So happy it's back!

I've started watching Grace and Frankie. I've seen the picture of the show numerous times on Netflix and now I thought I'd give it a go. I liked the premise, and I like it that it's a show about older people.

Me too!  I love the extra details too, like the billboards and road signs you can pick up on. :lol:  Why is it only four episode though? :weeping:

I watched all 4 episodes in quick succession and now I feel a bit bereft that it's over!

 

I've also been watching The Last Kingdom which is pretty good.

Your namesake :smile:!

 

We've only got 2 episodes left of Death in Paradise series / season 6. I'm sad it's almost over for a year because I love this show.

Star Trek: The Next Generation is still really enjoyable too. We're over halfway through season 5.

I didn't know that. That's a shame :(

I've been on a bit of a Glee kick lately (mainly because I got addicted to Supergirl/The Flash/Arrow and the main guy in The Flash and the main girl in Supergirl were Glee alum.) I wish Glee could have gone on forever! *weeps*

Yep :biggrin:   I'm really enjoying the show :wub:   There's so much more to it than just the main drama between the main characters. And there are so many interesting characters! I'm obsessed by Grace's daughter whose name I can't recall. And Frankie is such a great character :biggrin:  And I love the cast. Great actors. Good stuff!!   I only have two episodes left of the first season.

Couldn't find anything decent on at the moment, so while I'm catching up with the forum, I've put The Force Awakens on again :D

Friends. No matter how many times I've seen it, I never get tired of it.

 

I love Friends! But I do feel that since I've seen it so often, I don't enjoy watching it as much anymore (and the same for other TV shows I've seen quite a few times). Glad you don't tire of it :).

The last episode of Girls

 

Still 3 behind on Broadchurch due to a Tivo malfunction (followed by replacement) and then the rubbishness of ITVHub (only showing 1 week's worth of shows on the Tivo and only working back to the full 30 days on the website or iPhone app).

Is that the original one or the new one?  I used to like the old one, haven't seen the newbie though!

It's the new one.  I've never seen the old one, so I can't offer a comparison, but it's a bit silly, glossy American fare. :giggle2:

Yep the old one was too!

 

I see they've agreed to a second series of the X Files, with 10 episodes this time.

It's funny watching the very early eps of Friends though, before they got glamourous with perfect haircuts and nails!

This is abit weird, but I would love to go back to the 1990s when friends first came out and be 8-10 years older so I could have appreciated it as it was a new show.

 

Take Me Out!

No, I think I get what you mean. I was a teenager when I watched Friends for the first time. It would have been a different experience having viewed it at the age of 25 - 30, around the same age as the Friends characters in the show.

Macgyver - I know it's cheesy and a bit ridiculous, but I love it :D

We love this programme as well, what we class as easy entertainment.

 

Watching Doctor Who, caught up with both episodes over the weekend, now why was it not as good as this from the start with Peter Capaldi.  The new girl is fun.
