An Actress's Take on All-Things-Screen

TV Recommendations for my Friends 

People are always asking me what TV series I would recommend for them to watch next. And I say back…

READ MY BLOG! THIS IS WHY I WRITE IT!

I’m currently in the process of updating my website to make it snazzier and jazzier, so that you can clearly see my latest picks and have lots more sections to browse (watch this space). But in the meantime I have created a little list for friends that often ask. Truth is, everyone likes different things. I like lots of things that my friend Rachel enjoys and my friend Bob doesn’t. Bob likes things that Amber watches too and I don’t. My friend Gemma might like things HT watches and I do too – but Rachel doesn’t. You get the jist. And let’s not forget there’s a whole back catalogue of shows you can watch from years ago. Do you want something current or something older? Whatever you’re after- here’s a little list I have compiled for some friends who I had in mind.

    I kind of want to be like: now do me! I think I might try Crazy Ex Girlfriend based on this.

      I think you should! It can be quite off-putting at first because of the song numbers but actually – behind all of that – is a lot of wit and a very funny leading actress. And some great characters. Maybe not the main love interest, Josh, but I really like the rest of them – especially her co-workers (Darryl & Paula).
