Reviewing New TV Shows

August 02, 2016

Now if you know me at all, even just the tiniest bit, then you will know how much I LOVE watching different TV shows and completing the full series, no matter how many series there are. I have watched so many in the past and still have so many more that I want to watch. I'm not even kidding. I have a list in my iPhone notes called 'TV Shows I Need To Watch'. I have already written a few blog posts about my favourites at that time and even my all time favourites. Recently because college is finished and summer is here, I have been watching so much more than I ever could when I was revising. I've also started a few new ones, even though they're obviously not new and have been filming for years, but they are new to me. It's will be no surprise either that I have even finished a few of them and will be starting some more soon.

1. Geordie Shore
I would never have imagined when I first started this blog that I would actually be writing about Geordie Shore because up until a few months ago, I had no interest in the show whatsoever. I was always a TOWIE girl at heart and never saw the fascination with the Geordies. I remember one time in Secondary school when one of my friends would always talk about it to try and get me to watch it and I always insisted that it was nothing on TOWIE, even though I never actually gave it a chance, but from what I heard of it, there was no way I was going to. 

I always assumed that Geordie Shore was about young drunks getting up to all sorts of trouble, and don't get me wrong, they don't go easy on the Jager Bombs, but its so much more. I also found out when I started watching it that one of the cast members were from my home town which made me ever so happy. Another benefit to watching this show was the fact that I completely fell in love with Charlotte Crosby. She has definitely proved to me that the weirder you are, the better and more original you are. I am so glad that I decided to bite the bullet and start watching this show because I have never laughed so much in my life. It's also nice that these people are actually from Newcastle and live so close to my home town because they are so relatable, and I can actually understand what they are saying.

2. Peaky Blinders
This is a show that I literally just started on Saturday evening. After being persuaded by my Nana for a long time now, I decided that since I finished Geordie Shore, I was finally ready to take on another show. Boy did I underestimate this one! If I am being brutally honest here, I was in no rush to start this show until my nana told me on Saturday that Tom Hardy was in it. I was initially going to start The Vampire Dairies and then begin Peaky but I am so glad that I started this first. There are only three seasons and the third season only stopped airing at the start of June. It should be no surprise that I am already halfway through season two. I also absolutely love the fact that the majority of the cast aren't even Northern but they can pull off one heck of a good Northern accent.

For those who are unaware of Peaky, let me give you a little insight from good ol' Wikipedia. They can explain it much better than I can..

"Peaky Blinders is a gangster family epic set in Birmingham, England in 1919, just after the First World War. The story centres on the Romani Peaky Blinders gang and their ambitious and highly cunning boss Tommy Shelby (played by Cillian Murphy). The gang comes to the attention of Chief Inspector Chester Campbell (played by Sam Neill), a detective in the Royal Irish Constabulary sent over from Belfast, where he had been sent to clean up the city of the Irish Republican Army(IRA), communists, gangs and common criminals."
