Our favourite TV series

| |

This is quite a simple post for our blog, but posts like this can come in handy if you have nothing else to watch.

I’m only going to include our joint favourite shows, purely because I’ve watched a lot more than Mark and I think it’s better to know that more than one person has enjoyed the series.

Gavin and Stacey                                   
So this isn’t a new series, but we’ve watched it a number of times now. It’s such easy watching because it’s just lighthearted and feel good. Plus Mark loves that he gets to do impressions constantly when we rewatch it.

The Handmaid’s Tale
This is pretty much the exact opposite of Gavin and Stacey in terms of easy watching. The Handmaid’s Tale is dark, and intense and hard to watch at times. However, I think it’s such an important show to watch as it raises a lot of questions about a number of different issues. I think Mark also finds it interesting from a male perspective.

The Good Place                                                    
We love the good place. I’m a huge Office (US) fan and I’ve never really found a comedy series since that I enjoyed as much. However, the good place is definitely up there! I love all the characters and their development and how diverse they all are. I also relate a lot to a lot of the characters in different ways, which I think is why I enjoy it so much.

Stranger things                                             
We are both huge fans of Stranger things, I think it’s one of the first series that we watched properly together. I love that it’s a series that covers so many bases with sci-fi, horror, comedy and romance. It’s a great show.

Peaky Blinders
Mark started watching this before we were together, and when we got together it was just before one of the series was starting again so we rewatched it together and I loved it. It’s such an interesting show and looking at Thomas Shelby for an hour each week isn’t a bad thing either.

Task Master 
Task master is available on dave and it’s hilarious. It’s such a hidden gem and more people should watch it, it has Mark and I in stitches so many times when we watch it.

Some honourable mentions that we’ve watch together and really enjoyed (but probably not both of us have enjoyed them the same amount) include:

  • The Haunting of Hill House
  • The Office (US)
  • The Inbetweeners
  • The End of the f***ing World
  • The Sinner

I love sharing different films and series and music and books, really anything like that. So if you enjoy this post and want anymore or any in specific then let us know!
