Wow! It’s September already! I know you were expecting the ol’ favourites post but unfortunately I wasn’t able to post on Friday so it’s been delayed slightly! It’s coming though, I promise! In this post, I’m going to discuss all the programs I’m currently or recently watched because I realised that I’ve never really talked about it before! Some of these things are on Netflix, some are on Amazon Prime and some are on good ol’ fashioned television!
What I’m Currently Watching:
1. Grey’s Anatomy
I may have mentioned this once or twice, but I am currently very into watching Grey’s Anatomy on Amazon Prime! It is also available on Sky Boxsets and on DVDs! To brief you, it starts off about a first year surgeon Meredith Grey who is the daughter of a very famous surgeon, Ellis Grey. I’m not going to say much more as I don’t want to give anything away! It’s set in Seattle, in America, so it took me a few episodes to work out all the ‘lingo’ such as intern, resident and attending. Now, I probably know the American hospital hierarchy better than I know the British! I find this program interesting because I’m hoping to go into a medical career. I heard really good things about it before I started watching it and it definitely lived up to my expectations! I started watching it at the very end of July and I’m currently (written on the 30th August) at the end of Season Five (4th September Update: Ep 3 Season 6)! I’m looking forward to the next seasons!!
2. Bad Education
I’m not currently watching this, because I have actually finished it! Recently, I watched the BBC3 TV series Bad Education, and the accompanying film – The Bad Education Movie. I watched it on Netflix although I’m sure it’s probably available on BBC iPlayer. I found it funny and easy to watch and I got through the two or three series quite quickly! It’s about a history teacher in a secondary school called Alfie Wickers (Mr Wickers) who really just wants to make learning fun – and apparently pretty hilarious! He isn’t the most amazing or traditional teacher but the students in his class like him and they learn without even realising I think. He also has a crush on one of the other teachers – a biology teacher, Rosie Gulliver!
3. The Great British Bake Off
I mean, who doesn’t like the GBBO! I started watching on Netflix (the BBC version) a few months ago and I was quite hooked! I drifted away from it slightly recently but only last Tuesday, it started up again on Channel 4! Unfortunately, I did miss biscuit week as I was actually on the A12 dual carriageway at the time, but I’m definitely going to download it off of iPlayer so that I can catch up! I think that it can be quite funny at times!
4. Casualty & Holby City
I’ve grouped these two together because they’re quite similar medical dramas – set in the same hospital in fact! Casualty is set in Holby City Hospital’s Accident & Emergency Department and Holby City is set in Holby City’s General Surgical Ward, Cardio-thoracic Ward and Acute Admissions Unit. I enjoy this for similar reasons I enjoy Grey’s Anatomy. They can be quite realistic at time which, although hard to watch, is good for preparing me for my potential future career! I watch Casualty on BBC One on Saturday’s and I watch Holby on the same channel on a Tuesday.
I’ve watched EastEnders with my mum for as long as I can remember! For those who don’t know, it’s a British Soap drama set in the fictional town of Walford in East London (in real life the postcode is in the same place a Stratford!), and more specifically Albert Square! I don’t always follow all the story lines but I am at the moment, and it’s just something easy to watch on weekday evenings! I watch it on BBC One. Occasionally, I also watch Emmerdale and Coronation Street on ITV, which are similar soap dramas!
And there you have it! That is pretty much everything that I watch or I have watched recently! If you have any suggestions, I will gladly listen – just comment them below! Sorry again that this post was slightly delayed!
Thanks for reading – what’s your favourite program?
