Every day more or less you’ll see someone on social media asking for tv show recommendations, quite often it’s me! So I thought I’d pop a little list on here of what we’ve been watching and enjoying lately.
First up we have recently started a six month Apple TV subscription which was a gift as part of another service. These are my initial recommendations for Apple TV.
The Morning Show. I first watched season 1 back in 2020 and really enjoyed it, I am now up to date and am eagerly awaiting season 3. Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston are at the top of their game in this show and both bounce off each other effortlessly. The Morning Show covers important topics such as the MeToo movement and in my opinion well worth a watch.
Onto our latest favourite show, Ted Lasso. Ted Lasso is one of the funniest and strangely heart warming shows I’ve watched in a long time. The episodes are easy watching but still often deal with heavier topics such as men’s mental health, parental death and relationship issues. We have nearly completed season 2 and I will be gutted when we are up to date and have to wait for the weekly episodes. If you only take one of my recommendations take this one. It is based on a football team but you don’t have to know anything about football or even particularly like it to enjoy the show. Jason Sudeikis is absolutely incredible in this.
Moving onto Disney+, we don’t actually use this service that much other than the occasional film with the girls and to watch Greys Anatomy. This is now on season 19 so if you’ve never watched it you have a LOT to catch up. For me it’s dwindling a bit now and the episodes don’t grip me quite as much but as we are up to date we just watch the weekly episode as it pops up as I do still feel the need to finish it. The earlier seasons are outstanding so I would say if you are looking for a binge worthy box set it’s worth it.
Onto the service we use the most, Netflix. We watch a lot of short tv shows on here with the girls such as Gogglesprogs and Come Dine With Me. Recently we’ve started Country Ever After which is a reality show based on a country music singer and his family, the wife is going through a battle with colon cancer and they have such positivity for life, we all really enjoy this.
I’ve also recently enjoyed Firefly Lane, Working Mums, Dead to me and Maid. Firefly Lane being my favourite and I love how it focuses on female friendship more than most shows.
I’m looking forward to watching the new Lewis Capaldi show as I find him fascinating and if you have never watched it I do also recommend Schitts Creek, one of my favourite programmes ever.
Any recommendations for me?
