LIFESTYLE | THE WATCH-LIST: MARCH 2018
Having dealt with snow days and having quite a bit of free time lately, I’ve spent most nights doing uni work or freelance work whilst watching the TV. I’ve found that there hasn’t been much on actual TV that I’ve been hooked on so I’ve stuck to watching a lot of DVDs. How I get through some series so quickly, I do not know. I guess it’s because there are no adverts! Here’s a look at what I’ve been watching during March.
Chicago Fire season 6
Watching this weekly means I don’t find the storylines as engaging because I’m so used to binge-watching this! Hopefully when the series is finished and I get the box set, I’ll be able to piece it all together a little better!
Chicago PD season 5
I’ve been binge-watching this online and although I wasn’t sure about this season to start with, I’m now totally into it! I’m loving that there is less emphasis on the love lives of the characters and more details on the cases they’re investigating as well as some harder storylines for each character. I wasn’t convinced with new character Upton as she is the replacement for Sophia Bush but I’m starting to warm to her finally!
The Flash seasons 1-3
I’m a huge Grant Gustin fan; I adored him in Glee and was thrilled when he got a lead role in a TV show. I adore the supporting cast too; every episode is filled with excitement and action as well as some more heartfelt and emotional moments. I love that the female leads, Caitlin and Ivy, are strong, intelligent women. We need more kick-ass leading women on our screens!
Arrow season 5
I definitely miss some of the old characters and didn’t warm to some of the newer ones introduced. I’m still waiting for Oliver and Felicity to get together permanently!
Glee seasons 1-6
Glee has always been one of my favourite TV shows but since Cory Monteith died, I couldn’t bring myself to watch it anymore. Re-watching all of the series back got my emotions running all over the place. It really was a ground-breaking show for teens, exploring a whole range of issues and thoughts through music! And Lea Michele can do no wrong in my eyes; she’s a goddess!
Beauty and the Beast (2017)
It’s the first time I’ve seen this since going to the cinema and I actually didn’t enjoy it that much. I loved it the first time round but I wasn’t as convinced this time. I adore Emma Watson but I just wish they would’ve cast a trained singer for the role of Belle.
