This year one of my favourite British TV shows returned with another season: Broadchurch! After two years David Tennant and Olivia Colman are back.
Thought #1 – The Cast:
I’ve said this before (basically ever single time I talk about Broadchurch), but I’d like to point out once more how talented all these actors are. David Tennant is perfect as grumpy Detective (and I love his accent), Olivia Colman is just so relatable and her performance is always bound to get me. But also other cast members from past seasons like Jodie Whittaker get a chance to prove their talent. Furthermore, we get some new actors that blend in perfectly! Continue reading
I talked about one of the best British TV shows, Broadchurch before. After two years, we finally got a new season in 2017. But before I checked that one out, I had to catch up with season two!
This season picks up right after season 1. Danny Latimer’s murderer has to face trial. Of course that has a major impact not only on Danny’s family but on the entire town. Meanwhile DI Hardy has to deal with a witness from another investigation. More questions arise than are answered…
Those of you who watched season one know that Broadchurch captures you with an intensity no other show can come up with. If that is even possible, the second season stepped up the game. I hadn’t expect the trial to be the main focus through the entire season, but believe me, it works out more than perfectly. Continue reading
Today I want to share another (by now pretty widespread) tag that I changed a bit. I saw the coffee tag circulating but dealing with books, so I decided to spice it up a bit and write about TV shows instead!
A series that’s tough to get into but has hardcore fans.
I’ll go with American Horror Story. When you watch it for the first time the show seems really weird but once you get into it there’s no way back. Moreover, this applies to basically every season of AHS. As it is an anthology ever season is completely different so you have to start all over again each year.
A series that gets more popular during the winter or a festive time of year.
Doctor Who! The Christmas Specials are so popular, I once read that the viewing rate is far higher than for the regular episodes. Although I really like the show in general, the Christmas special are beyond awesome! Continue reading
When Broadchurch was aired on German television a few weeks ago, I was reminded how much it impressed me!
This award-winning crime drama features some of Great Britain’s finest actors.
Reason #1 – The Atmosphere:
When it comes to creating suspense and simply a thrilling atmosphere, Broadchurch is one of the best shows I came across in a long time. The music blends in perfectly with the stunning landscape. From close-up to slow-motion, whatever technique they used, it as a perfect fit. Continue reading
There’s a bunch of TV shows I really like but I feel like they don’t get the credit they deserve. So here’s a big shout-up to my favourite underrated shows!
1. Pushing Daisies:
I loved this shows. It was so lovely, colorful but yet dorky and different. It was a bit weird, I guess that’s why I liked it so much. The show about a pie baker who discovers that he can revive dead people would have deserved far more than just two seasons!
2. Archer: Continue reading
