An Actress's Take on All-Things-Screen

What I’m Watching

catch-22

CHANNEL 4

 

This new series, created by George Clooney, came to Channel 4 this month and it was his first launch into the small screen world for a long time. The show, based on the famous book, is honestly one of the best TV shows I've seen in a while. It's dry, heart-breaking and gut-wrenching in one fell swoop and I quite literally was on the edge of my seat. Christopher Abbot, you're brilliant.

Big little lies

SKY ATLANTIC

 

What do you get when you cross a group of women with an accidental murder and a mum in the form of Meryl Streep? A whole lotta' drama, that's what. This brilliant series is back with its latest installment and with Streep in tow, I don't expect anything less than on-the-edge-of-your-seat stuff. Saying that - Shailene Woodley is my fave. I watch it mostly for her. Her and Reese.

StrangER THINGS

Netflix

 

Your favourite young'uns are back and apparently it's bigger and better than ever. Who would have thought you'd want to watch this show on anything other than the Halloween holiday but it's a thing. Because it's so brilliant. And the acting is immense too. I want to steal all their costumes and wear them to my next party. Or in general. Or to work. And I want Dustin's cap too please.

The Bold Type

AMAZON PRIME

 

I owe this show a lot. It's made me feel less alone, empowered, silly, and full of love for women. The characters are brilliant (my favourite is Sutton) and whilst it might seem like your airy fairy Gossip Girl style show. This is no flighty endeavour. It deals with hard-hitting issues and it doesn't shy away from the truth. I can't recommend it enough. Have a watch so we can chat about it.

My boyfriend became obsessed with this television show and so, by osmosis, I started to watch it. I have to admit - I've only seen glimpses. But I can get why it's so brilliant and why people have been raving about it. Watch all the episodes on your Sky box now. Expect: gruesome bits, heart-wrenching bits and some epic casting. Well done, once again, Nina Gold.

what if

NETFLIX

 

I’m still plugging away at this TV show. It’s not the best. It’s very extra. VERY very extra. Think looking-into-the-thunder-as-you-sign-an-important-contract extra. It also feel very Fifty Shades of Grey. But somehow I’m still going. Because Renee Zellwegger is brilliant in it and I want to get to the bottom of what really happened on THAT night. I'm pretty sure it's not what we all expect...
