TV TALK

Hello there , dear blahers! I know I’ve been absent for a while, I’ve been pretty consumed by school and my internship (on which I’ll elaborate in another post). And yes, I also know it’s Monday, don’t judge.

This week I’ll tell you about what I’ve been loving TV wise lately. With lately I mean before my internship started, I don’t really have time to obsess about television-series at the moment, true story!

Let’s start of with a guilty pleasure: Brothers and Sisters. Very American, very ‘soapy’ but also deliciously entertaining. The series evolves around the Walkers a family of 5 brothers and sisters (yes, exactly) and their mum and uncle. The family is tightly glued together by a family business and a love for gossip (especially through group calls). Two things I can relate to. Genre wise I would say it is a dramedy. The drama part varies between relationship troubles, financial problems and illness, not very original but I have to admit I’ve had to blink away a tear every now and then. The comedy routine is always the same but very funny nevertheless: secrets in the style of “don’t tell anyone but…” get passed around and lead to hilarious situations usually during family dinners.

During the Christmas holidays I got  (very) into ANOTHER Scandinavian series: The Killing. As in my other favourite Danish series Borgen there is a strong female lead, political intrigues and a lot of suspense. I think it’s cool that unlike regular murder mysteries they take a season to solve just one murder. This allows you to spend more time with the characters and get to know them better. Maybe the first season was a little bit too long with its 20 episodes, but for the second and third season they cut back to 10 episodes which was perfect. I would say that if you like long, complicated storylines and handsome, serious Danes this is for you!

This video bring me to an all time favourite: Ab Fab sweety darling. I haven’t seen the new episodes but I can’t wait to get into those and cry with laughter. Those two fashion victims/ alcoholics/ nicotine addicts never get boring. After all who doesn’t love a ‘liquid lunch’ with Patsy and Eddy? joanna_lumley_abfab
