What I’m Watching: September

This month has been a relatively lazy month when it comes to the watching of TV and Netflix, as I’ve been much more online oriented: reading, networking, working on the blog, et al.

By the time I get home from work, I’m mentally exhausted these days – there’s been a lot of deadlines to meet prior to my trip to Berlin, which I fly out to this afternoon!

Hooray!

However, just because TV bingeing hasn’t been on the agenda, it doesn’t mean it hasn’t been happening. However, rather than watching anything new and exciting that requires my attention, I’ve been revisiting old faithfuls that I know like the back of my hand.

So, what have I been watching in September?

Star Trek: TNG

I grew up on this programme, and have watched every single episode at least 5 times in my life. Funny story actually, as a child, every Friday night my father would take me to VideoEzy with him to borrow some VHS to get the family through the weekend. I would always pick out the latest ST:TNG video, because I knew just how much my parents loved it, and I was always that kind of person who supports people’s interests. Anyway, fast forward twenty odd years, and as I was relaying this fond memory to my parents, they gave each other a look and admitted to me they didn’t actually like ST:TNG, they only watched it because I loved it so much…

I still do.

Cougar Town

If you have never watched Cougar Town, what are you doing with your life? Sure, the name is offputting, and the first few episodes are a bit meh, but once the writers gave up the premise of the show being about a 40 year old dating 20 year olds, the show found its feet and became a funny, charming, relatable show about 40-something alcoholic neighbours and their lives.

Great British Bake Off

Ok, so we’re only a few episodes in but as I have the past few years, I watch this show religiously. Sure, it’s sad to see the departure of 75% of the original crew, but Noel Fielding is so charming and funny as one of the hosts, and contestants are just as warm and relatable as past years, that there’s no way the rebooted show won’t find its way into our hearts. To be honest, I’ve never actually been the biggest Noel Fielding fan, but GBBO is doing a good job of converting me. However, ol’ blue eyes is still a dick.

My Kitchen Rules: Australia

So, although this was shown in March/April this year, it’s being reshown now on SKY and so Ben and I are recording this to binge on the weekend. If you’ve never watched MKR, it’s your typical cooking competition with two contestants per team, battling to be the best. There’s two judges, a hunky French man, and a neurotic Oompa Loompa, but watching the infighting, the cattiness, and the classic banter (as well as the delicious food) makes this an enjoyable show to watch (unlike MasterChef Australia which is just utter shite these days tbh).


So, that’s what I’ve been watching – what about you?

  • I guess I’ll have to give Cougar Town a try. I think I watched a couple of the first episodes and didn’t like it but if you say they dropped that plan then maybe I need to give it another chance.

    • Definitely do. It is honestly let down by both title and first few episodes. Give it a chance – the won’t regret it x

  • Ok, I have been watching “cheers”………..You don’t have to be my friend anymore.

    • Oooh! I should totally add that to my binge watch list, after I finish Full House, obvs. Nothing wrong with old school classics 😉

    I’ve been watching The Defenders, which is… not great. And started Riverdale, which is more interesting. I think the change in season is making me want to watch slightly darker dramas? Normally I’d be watching comedies. I love how TV binging is like a task now for everyone rather than a pastime or hobby. It’s like, “Oh, I have homework, then work, then I got to do some TV binging this weekend.” A very enjoyable task, though, of course.

    • I love Riverdale! I am really hoping the foreshadowing darker, metaphysical elements actualy happen thougvh, cause I love that stuff.
      Ben swears by the Defenders though I’ ve not had a chance yet to indulge.
      Yeah, i get what you mean – indulging in TV seems a luxury today as opposed to the pastime of couch potatoes of times passed. However, once the new season of TV starts – I’ll be all over it!

      • enniyaya

        Definitely. Fall season is the best! There will be a lot of shows for me to watch. Riverdale’s first season is fun so far, and the second season is starting soon! There won’t be much indulging to do with The Defenders, haha. There are some fun moments, but it mostly moves painfully slowly–even for a season as short as 8 episodes!

        • Riverdale’s firsy season would have been even morefun, if it didn’t have Archie’s music obsession! 😂

  • Eager to see your latest updates. Keep Sharing 🙂

  • I actually think the new GBBO is better than before – I love Sandi and Noel together and the ad breaks don’t bother me either. Apart from that, I’ve been watching Strike which is a fantastic Robert Galbraith crime series, Masterchef, the new series of the hilarious W1A which started this week, Liar and my usual guilty pleasure *whispers* TOWIE. Feel free to judge me for that one.

    • I have never watched TOWIE however, who can blame a woman for watching crazy glam people being dramatic? xx
