Westworld – my new TV crush

OHMYGODDIDYOUSEEWESTWORLDWASN’TITLIKETHEBESTTHINGEVERANDWHENISTHENEXTEPISODEBLOODYHELLINEEDTOSEEITNOW *ahem* I mean, did you happen to see the first episode of the Westworld series? Because it was damn bleeding can’t-peel-your-eyes-off-the-screen good. If you didn’t watch it then you should probably stop reading as I may accidentally spoiler-fy your brain. Seriously, though, if you didn’t watch it then you really need to go and watch it now. *stares* It’s got everything – robot cowboys, ruthless corporate bosses, visitors who think nothing of blowing the brains out of robots for fun. Plus, let’s be fair, a stellar team and cast to carry it along on its visually stunning course (we’re…

A mother’s day at the movies

Happy mother’s day to all you lovely ladies – and especially to that particularly lovely lady who’s had the dubious pleasure of getting stuck with me for… erm… let’s just say a few years… Hey, I got ID’d buying wine in the shop the other day so shut your faces. The fact that the shop assistant had to hold my ID right up to his eyeballs to see it doesn’t matter. Any ID check counts when you get to a certain age. Anyway, I digress. Mother’s day, a time to indulge in chocolate and flowers (a trial run for Easter),…

Reading, watching, listening

Last time in Sharing is Good, I talked about the joys of Chuck Wendig, The Bridge and the brilliant David Bowie. I also got to hear a bit about The Man in the High Castle, a tip from Brum Radio Book Show over on Twitter, a series that’s going straight on my watch list. And in this latest instalment of reading, watching, listening, here’s the creative crack that’s been going down. Reading: Did I mention that I pretty much devoured The Death House by Sarah Pinborough? It made me cry. And it wasn’t pretty crying. It was all red eyes…

Top televisual eye-joy

Last week I got more excited than a pig in a mud-field about Narcos. It’s great. For reasons why it’s great you can read my brain splurge here. So, in the spirit of sharing TV’s best excuses to curl up on the sofa with a blanket, the beast and a bottle of wine during the long winter nights, here’s six more series that set my eyeballs salivating. The Walking Dead Because *zombies* (and some dodgy American accents). Six Feet Under By far the best series about a family-run funeral home, ever. American Horror Story I’ve only seen season one, the…

Let’s talk about Narcos

Can we stop for a minute and talk about the demon telly box for just a goddamn hippo slinging second? And by demon, I mean that in a good way. Like sick. Sick for great. Sick for king. Long live the sick. ‘Cause never let it be said that I am not DOWN WITH THE KIDS. That’s down as in, really cool, chilling with the kids. Not slightly depressed and disappointed with the kids. Because I’ve just finished watching Narcos which turns out to be probably one of the best series I have had the pleasure of goggling my eyes…
