Last week I gave myself a pretty big pat on the back. I needed to save some cash and after noticing that after this month’s Sky bill my subscription costs had jumped up by nearly £25. So I thought it was about time I had a little chat with those lovely people over at Sky. Despite being a customer for over 5 years, I still feel like Sky could do better, give us loyal customers a better deal instead of keeping them all for newbies. After a long chat I managed to get my current package, which includes everything except sports, with a brand new HD+ box for multiroom viewing for £3 less than what I paid for November’s subscription! Bargain hey!
The thing is that now I need a TV for my bedroom. I have been looking around, doing some online window shopping. I have been looking at some Panasonic, Viera Tv’s and have been debating the pro’s and con’s of getting one with a DVD player in too! Decisions, decisions, I need to hurry though it’s being installed on Friday!
I am hoping this development for my future viewing habits will mean that I will actually get to watch something other than the Disney Channel, there is only so much Liv and Maddie any grown up can handle! I have wildly different tastes to Olivia and most of my viewing choices would scare the bejesus out of her! Not however, our all time favourite TV show, The Big Bang Theory, you can’t go wrong with a bit of Sheldon Cooper, bazinga!
I do have a small allowance of space in my Sky planner for some adult only viewing time and this is what I am currently watching and will be getting watched on my new TV (when I actually get round to picking one!)
My Current Top 5 TV Shows are;
The Walking Dead. Monday 9pm FOX
What can I say, I am currently loving season 6 of this show. I got into it quite late (after season 4 I think) and literally lived and breathed it for weeks to catch up in time for season 5 to start. If you don’t know already, where have you been???,It’s season 6 already!!!!!! The Walking Dead is about a group of people learning to live, and survive in a world full of zombies that eat humans. One bite and you are one of them, game over. Follow Rick on his journey to find, well I’m not sure anymore but if you haven’t already seen it, and don’t mind excessive amounts of gore, go watch it now.
Haven. Wednesday 9pm SyFy
I love a good supernatural drama and Haven has it in abundance. Currently heading towards it’s last ever episode Haven is set in Maine and is a town full of ‘troubles’ People have these afflictions that cause them to do things beyond their control eg a baby who’s cries can kill people eek!, or how about the man who attracts bullets even if wasn’t aimed at him and the one who has no feelings at all! There is one woman who can help and I can’t wait to find out how it all ends.
Nashville. E4 New series starting next year.
Set in Nashville, clue is in the title, based around country music stars, new and established, and OMG! the drama! It is ridiculous, and yet so completely addictive! Diva’s, Eye Candy, (Deacon) Amazing music, it’s got it all and I absolutely cannot wait for the next season.
Criminal Minds. Sky Living Monday 9pm.
Current season is 11. This is quite possibly one of the most disturbing shows I have ever watched/been created. Following a team of of profilers from the FBI’s BAU (behavioural analysis unit) as they solve cases all over the country from some pretty sick and twisted individuals. As horrific as some of the crimes are it is still an absolutely amazing show and I’m still hooked.
Melissa and Joey. E4 10-11 am Monday to Friday.
Melissa, aka Sabrina the Teenage Witch, and Joey, aka Joey from Blossom, is one of my favourite comedy sitcoms, think My Wife and Kids. I was a bit wary at first but warmed up to it and ended loving it. Even though it officially ended after it’s last season, they are still showing it on E4 and I watch it pretty much every day. Mel is a local councilwoman who takes in her sister’s kids after she is jailed for swindling cash off investors with her husband. One of her husband’s former employees was Joe, who now is Mel’s nanny helping her bring up her sister’s kids.
Shows I need to watch.
Breaking Bad. I know, I know, I just haven’t yet
Homeland. I’ve seen the odd episode but it looks like my kind of programme so I need to get round to it.
Once Upon a Time. Now with this one, I watched season 1 and 2 on Channel 5 and Season 3 on Netflix but since I cancelled my Netflix account I haven’t seen the rest of it but I really want to.
The Affair. Just started over on Sky Atlantic, it looks really good but so far I’ve just missed it but I suppose that’s what my Sky+ is for right!
And well I’m not sure what else so let me know. What are you watching? What do you think of my picks and what do you think I should be watching?
