What I’ve Been Watching #6

As Summer comes to an end, TV season officially kicks in again. I’ll be the first to admit that one of the reasons I love the Autumn so much is because TV simply gets better this time of year. Before we dive into the new TV season, I thought now would be a perfect moment to spotlight my Summertime viewings.

Discussion: The Pros and Cons of Binge Watching

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. Now, I have binge-watched in the past and it’s a great way to unwind. However, there are also some downsides to this binge-watching culture we’ve developed. Here is a summary of some of the pros and cons of binge-watching.

What I’ve Been Watching #4

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.

What I’ve Been Watching #3

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.

What I’ve Been Watching #2

Book slumps suck, but once again film and television have come to fill the void. Since my first ‘What I’ve Been Watching‘ post I’ve watched quite a few new shows and some films that I’d been meaning to watch for ages.  I’ll confess, I’m not the best at binge watching programmes because I always end up needing to take a break in between and forget all about them. Here’s a summary of what I’ve been watching since the New Year.

What I’ve Been Watching

It is no secret that I’ve been in a bit of reading slump for this last month or so. It sucks, but at the end of the day, the most effective method of getting over this slump is to power through it. However, there is one benefit to this slump because as I’m looking for other ways to occupy my time I end up binge watching. I have said this so many times, but my mood has a huge influence on what I read and watch. Here is a list of the shows/films I’ve been watching.

Top Ten Tuesday: TV Special

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list. 

Every time we get a freebie week my mind goes blank. Prior to those weeks I’ll have floods of topic ideas but I always forget to actually note them down. So, since I’ve been stuck in a pretty horrible reading slump, I’ve decided to use this freebie week to highlight some of my go-to TV shows.
