Got to love a good TV show

As in most relationships I can guess that sometimes (often) you clash when you are deciding what to watch on television in the evening and we are no exception to that. We are also a couple who don’t ever seem to watch live television anymore as we are just too busy; On Demand and Netflix are great inventions for busy people as it is the only way that we get to watch tv!

Currently when we are in our separate time when one or the other is out, I am watching Thirteen Reasons Why; which I didn’t think that Dan would like to watch but every time he sees me watching it, he says “I can’t believe that you’re watching that without me” Clearly I was wrong.

To be honest I thought it would just be a cheesy high school teen show but actually it’s about growing up, suicide, teenage indifferences and it is quite a dark show. Dan is currently watching Breaking Bad when I’m not in but he can keep that one to himself, as I’m not keen on that show.

We are huge Netflix fans, all those shows for a few pounds a month and there is always something to watch for everyone in the family on there and it’s very rare that we don’t find something that we agree on.

There are some programmes that we love to watch together and recently we have seen some great series. We were huge fans of Dexter (I swear he is still alive) the serial killing blood splatter analysis who worked for the police.

Michael C.Hall portrayed the character so effectively, so it’s been great to see him recently in a new show on Netflix. If you like a good short drama then catch him in Safe which has recently been released on Netflix and is about his daughter going missing and their search for her (if you’re from Manchester, see what places you can spot as it was filmed here).

If you were fans of the Lethal Weapon films in the nineties then you will either love or hate the Lethal Weapon series that is currently on at 9pm on a Friday evening. We love it, the characters and storylines are really well thought out and it’s actually quite funny in a lot of places. I’ve become a big fan of Clayne Crawford who plays Detective Martin Riggs in the programme and I’m quite sad that apparently he’s not coming back for a third series but he is being replaced by Seann William Scott (you might know him as Stifler from the American Pie films) so it’s not all bad as he’s quite funny.

Then there is Sons of Anarchy, if you haven’t seen this yet – you don’t know what you are missing. A group of bikers that have their own way of living that are involved in so many crimes that you cannot keep track of them all. As you watch more episodes, they delve into the lives of the characters and you end up warming to them. To be honest, it took me a couple of episodes to actually get into it but once I did we had some serious binge sessions where before we knew it, it was 1.30am in the morning and we had hammered 3 or 4 episodes at once. As you work your way through the series, you can see that more money was being thrown at it as the special effects, stunts and storylines got a lot bigger.

I always found it highly amusing that Katey Sagal (who you might remember as Peggy Bundy from Married with Children) plays quite a prominent character in the programme but I wanted her to rock up as Peggy, just for a laugh. Seriously though, she is a great actress and the rest of the cast work amazingly well together. I’m very pleased to hear that there are going to be spin offs from this show over the next couple of years, I’m looking forward to them very much.

So that’s my little round up of what we like to watch and I would love to hear your recommendations as we always on the lookout for new shows.

Valentine’s Day

***Sponsored Content***

Many of you today will have received chocolates, flowers, underwear, possibly an engagement ring and many other things that you happen to love. Many others won’t have received anything as they don’t conform to the annual romantic celebrations and others will still be waiting on that special someone to celebrate next year.

But do you really know why this romantic day actually exists?

The truth is, is that nobody actually knows the exact story of how it came about although it is thought to be about the tragic fate of St.Valentine who was said to have been killed around 269 C.E. for marrying couples in Rome when it wasn’t allowed.

Follow me on Instagram

Due to the romantic connection of why he was killed, this led to be him becoming the patron saint of love. It was actually centuries later when the 14th of February became Valentine’s Day and an extremely long time until it became the commercialism event that we see today leading to us handing each other among other things cards, roses and chocolates.

But … then there was apparently another man called Valentine too (just to confuse things a little) and he was killed too! There are also the stories about it being a Roman Pagan festival that Christians condemned.

So, as you can see – it’s all a little confusing isn’t it and I’m struggling to understand why we would celebrate it if it’s to do with men being killed! Hmm, so my take on it is this …

If you love someone, whether it be your boyfriend, wife, children then tell them every day … not just when the adverts tell you too. 💕
