What I've Been Watching | August 2016

I thought it was about time I did another "What I've Been Watching" post as there's a few things I've been super excited about! 

TV Programmes -

Stranger Things -
Honestly I'm sure you'll have heard of this, everyone and their grandma is talking about it, and for good reason! This Netflix original is one of the best shows I've seen in a long time! I'm sure you'll have heard all about it, so just watch it! If you're a fan of sci-fi and the 80's, it's for you!

Prison Break -
I heard there was a new series of Prison Break coming out so I thought it was about time I started watching the others. I've heard for years about how good it is and it's already sucking me in! 

Brief Encounters -
This was a show that's just recently finished on ITV but I'm pretty sure it's on catch up, set around Ann Summers parties and the ladies who run them in the 80's, it'll make you laugh and cry and it's definitely worth a watch!

Master of Photography -
This show is like an ANTM type reality show, a competition between photographers where they get set different tasks each week across Europe before they get eliminated hosted by Isabella Rossellini, if you're interested in photography you'll definitely like this!

Scream -
I heard a lot of hype about this series and since the second one has just come about I've started the first and I already really like it. It reminds me of PLL, typical high school show with murder squeezed in there too!

The Get Down -
Another Netflix original, it's set in 1970's New York in the Bronx, around teenagers trying to make it big in the music world, the soundtrack it worth watching it alone! The whole vibe of this is super cool, it's produced by Baz Luhrmann so if you like the style of The Great Gatsby, Romeo & Juliet etc you'll like this!

Films - 

Suicide Squad -
This one definitely divided opinions, I still really enjoyed it, yeah there are problems with it, I found the cut and editing very abrupt and strange, but it's a load of fun and still worth a watch in my opinion. 

Stark Trek Into Darkness -
I love the other recent Star Trek films and this one is the third in the series, it's just like the others, action packed and a decent watch. 

Lights Out -
I saw this horror the other day, it's a great one if you love scares! From the same people who made Insidious etc, it's super creepy and worth a watch! 

The Good Dinosaur -
This Pixar film recently came onto Sky and I couldn't resist watching it, it's a great heart warming film, although I wasn't prepared for the emotional moments! The animation is great and I'd definitely recommend giving it a watch!

Ghostbusters -
Finally another I saw at the cinema recently, again split opinions, I thought it was lots of fun, I didn't have high expectations and it was better than I thought it was going to be, I love Kristen Wiig and I thought it was really funny, the effects are really good too. 

What have you been watching recently? I'd love some recommendations! 



  1. I adored brief encounters! It was such a heartwarming show! I'm going to see suicide squad today so happy you think its still worth a watch - heard nothing but bad things!

  2. I really like Scream too! It's a bit silly, but it's such an easy watch I can't help but love it.
