What I'm watching.....

After finishing watching Breaking bad ages ago there hasn't been any TV shows I have really got into apart from the usual Soaps, Big Brother and Geordie Shore.....

That was until these last couple of weeks......

For the last month or so there has been new shows starting which I have been recording and this week we have started to watch them.....

The 100.
E4 on Mondays.

 The series is set 97 years after a devastating nuclear war wiped out almost all life on Earth. The only known survivors are the residents of twelve space stations in Earth's orbit prior to the war. The space stations banded together to form a single massive station named "The Ark", where about 2,400 people live. Resources are scarce and all crimes no matter their nature or severity are punishable by death ("floating") unless the perpetrator is under 18 years of age. After the Ark's life support systems are found to be critically failing, one hundred juvenile prisoners are declared "expendable" and sent to the surface in a last ditch attempt to determine if Earth is habitable again. They discover that not all humanity was wiped out. There are people on earth who survived the war, called "grounders" by the 100.

I was recording it for weeks off E4.....I wasn't too bothered about watching it but when I did I had to watch more and more of it.....Stu and I went to sleep one night after 2am watching it as we needed to know what happened next....Even when I thought I knew what was going to happen it surprised me.....There's some familiar faces in it too....A couple of people who used to be in Neighbours, Desmond off Lost & Calvin off Hollyoaks.....

Lifetime on Fridays.

 The reality series chronicling the behind the scenes workings of the burger restaurant business owned by the Wahlberg family.....Yes Donnie who was in New Kids on the Block, Mark the actor, their brother Paul the master chef and their mother Alma who is absolutely brilliant!!

This reality show centres around Alma and Paul....Paul runs the family restaurant business and Alma is the Hostess at Alama Nove.....Through the series you see the relationships they all have with each other and Mark & Donnie's antics which generally involve Paul being the brunt of the jokes.....So funny!

I didn't think I would like this show but I do......

Most Haunted
Really TV Channel - Thursdays 10pm

It's back!!!  One of my guilty pleasures.....I love Yvette Fielding.....

 This spooktacular series will follow paranormal activity across the UK at venues including The Royal Court Theatre in Lancashire and Sheffield’s National Emergency Services Museum. It will also include celebrity guests such as Ben Foden and the England Rugby team as well as Welsh heavy metal band Bullet for my Valentine.

I watched it Thursday night laid in bed.....It scared me....I don't do scary stuff.....I actually covered my eyes at one point when rolls of tape were moving I don't care if it's faked....I love the show!

Under The Dome.
CH5 - Starting Monday 25th of August

This returns for the second series on Monday.....

Under the Dome tells the story of the residents of the small town of Chester's Mill in Maine, where a massive, transparent, indestructible dome suddenly cuts them off from the rest of the world. With no Internet access, no mobile signals and limited radio communication, the people trapped inside must find their own ways to survive with diminishing resources and rising tensions. While military forces, the government and the media positioned outside of this surrounding barrier attempt to break it down, a small group of people inside attempt to figure out what the dome is, where it came from, and when (and if) it will go away.

The last series finished with the teens of the show having fun with the mini dome and the egg inside of it, Big Jim running the town Barbie waiting to be hanged and Julia having to make the choice to save the egg and the lives of the entire town or save Barbie....

I have seen the first two episodes of the new series and wow!! I won't spoil it but there are deaths in the first episode!! hehehe
And don't forget tonight at 7.50pm on BBC1...

Doctor Who!

It will see Peter Capaldi in his first full episode as the Twelfth Doctor....

I am so excited for it....
