Britain is a mixture of despair and hedonism in 1919 in the aftermath of the Great War.

A warning before reading this post. It is long, I ramble a lot, and I’ve tried to keep spoilers to a bare minimum. My life has been consumed by this show for the past couple of month, and while I still have a series to go before catching up, I thought now would be the perfect moment to highlight the best moments of what I’ve seen so far.

Binge-watching is the most common pastime nowadays. With the rise in popularity of Netflix and Amazon Prime, TV Shows and films are instantaneously accessible to everyone.

Here is a summary of some of the pros and cons of binge-watching.
This is the first official post since my return from Canada and I am already itching to fly back out. During my time there I didn’t actually watch a lot of productions. The first three films I mention in this post were my in-flight entertainment. However, sometimes you need a Netflix and chill night just to unwind after the day’s activities so I did some casual viewing on the side. The only stress inducing viewing was the Stanley Cup Playoffs. I was on the edge of my seat for the entire series. Not gonna lie, my shouty voice came out a few times because I was so frustrated with some of the plays I’d seen. Anyway, here’s a list of what I’ve been watching.
It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these posts, but I thought it was time to take a break from the books and talk about all the TV Shows and films I’ve been watching. As always, I go through weird phases with my viewings, and my mood also heavily influences what I watch. I think my favourite film in this post is made very clear, but here are my current TV and film highlights.
