Back to a good old list – the namesake of my blog! I thought I’d share with you some of my current TV watching favourites. Due to the international audience, I’ve not really added too much link details, as everyone has different networks etc.
What’s not to love about pressure challenges with eccentric fashion designers? I love seeing innovative clothes that aren’t like everything you see in the stores. My favourite is the bizarre challenges – making clothing from a hardware store, or a candy store or a florist. And every season, there’s a weird ‘customer’ or two – either retired ladies from a dance class, reusing bridal dresses to party dresses, or rip off clothing for a men’s revue. Mix in the lack of sleep and lots of ‘interviews’ and there’s tears and spills and all sorts of D-R-A-M-A complete with hand flips!
This is an Australian show set in Melbourne based around a group of fathers. The most outrageous things happen sometime – like the opening episode having the grade 1 children driving a bus, but mostly it’s like real life. Ups and downs. Marriages splitting and reuniting, suspicion and mistrust, foster care and gay parenting. There’s enough lightness to truly fall in love with all the children, the wives and of course the husbands.
Aaron Sorkin is a genius, the producer of a drama about a … wait for it… newsroom! There’s enduring tension between the anchor, Will and the British executive producer Mac, and a sordid triangle between young Maggie, executive producer Don (the douche bag to me) and new executive producer Jim (the knight in shining armour). They match the scripts to the news events we’d all remember, and make it incredibly compelling. There’s rousing speeches, cutting journalistic interrogation and the usual drama rollercoaster of almost/is it/not quite relationships…
A recently released Australia drama based on all the flatmates who live in a flat called Wonderland, on a beach of Sydney. The young somethings are naturally people I relate to, and there’s some delicious shoots of Sydney! It started with a wedding, then a shock proposal by a woman – who was publicly rejected by her boyfriend… Naturally, there’s some chemistry and some love triangles as well as some lovely ‘flat’ dinners, where all the parties come together – including a mum of a younger character!
- The BF cooked me an omlette for dinner, before he went to the gym
- I have an awesome colleague who with minimal supervision, channels my ideas perfectly!
- Got onto straightening the top of the entry closet – I kept wondering just what was in there (not much)
- Got a great rock star park near my house that is also untimed 😀
