I don’t know about you, but I watched a lot of TV from March to May this year. A lot of it was rewatching comfort shows but there was also some exciting new things and even some total trash. I though I’d share some of my finds.

I’ve included where I watched each thing (mostly streaming services) but be aware that I can be sure how long each will be available or if you can access them outside of the U.K.

My Top 5 TV Show Opening Credits

You know what it’s like, you binge-watch a show and you’ve got the opening theme in your head for days. Some are worth it though. The five openings below are beautiful and clever, I’m happy to watch them again and again.

And I also just really like these shows!

Which TV series do you think has an awesome opening credits sequence?

TV Shows I’d Like to Rewatch Someday

Beyond Books

I’ve said before, that I don’t really reread a lot of books: there’s so many to read and so little time! I feel sort of the same about tv shows, I don’t tend to rewatch many — with the exception of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Boston Legal and most notably M*A*S*H which I’ve seen half a dozen times — but there are a few I’d like to go back and take another look at.

Here are six TV series I’d like to rewatch. What about you?

Make Me Watch It: Five Films From My Netflix List

Beyond Books

A few weeks ago I made a list of TV shows on Netflix I wanted your opinions on. I tend to watch more series than films anyway, but here are five films currently on Netflix I think I’d like to watch at some point.

Which ones should I watch? Which ones are trash?

Which other movies on Netflix would you recommend me to look up?

The Best Game of Thrones Looks

Image2

There are a lot of stunning outfits in Game of Thrones, even in the background. I love how much thought goes into each one — tiny details changing and evolving on the King’s Guard armour, the logic behind even the different blacks the Night’s Watch wear, the house sigils and hidden symbolism — I love it all.

There are always certain outfits that stand out as more memorable though. Here are seven that I particularly like.

Do you have a favourite costume from the series?

If you’re interested in the costuming choices and designs, there’s lots of analysis and interviews on MakingGameofThrones.com

The Best Game of Thrones Quotes

Okay so actually: The Best A Song of Ice and Fire Quotes, but that’s a bit long for a title.

A couple of weeks ago the Top Ten Tuesday prompt was “Inspirational/ Thought Provoking Book Quotes“. One of the ones I picked was the Sansa Stark line (my favourite):

“My skin has turned to porcelain, to ivory, to steel.”

Greg from Greg’s Book Haven pointed out that a whole list of favourite Game of Thrones quotes would be fun and I’ve shamelessly stolen the idea.

Animated Movies To Watch in 2019

Beyond Books

There are so many amazing movies still to come out this year. I thought I’d take a look through them all and see what ones I’m interested in. I don’t watch a tonne of movies, so I really need to keep a mental note or I completely forget to go see anything. Even then, to be honest. So I thought I’d put together a post as a reminder and to share with you guys.

I did a separate post two weeks ago on all the non-animated movies I was interested in, here, so this is just for animation. Some are kids movies and some have cross-over appeal.

Let me know if you’ve seen or are looking forward to any of these too.

I’m sure I’ve missed some, so what are your most anticipated films for the year?

All info comes from IMDb and is accurate at the time I’m writing.
