I've not been watching a lot of TV this week as I have been on holiday but did manage to catch the big winner of the week in ratings and just general all round entertainment - Car Share.
I've not just watched the first episode, I've binge watched all four episodes as they all became available on BBC iplayer. There is always time on a vacation for comedy. It's a bit like dangling chocolate in front of me and saying I can have one chunk every week or the whole lot now, ermmmm yep I can't resist..
I won't give it all away so don't worry as I do understand some people possess very good willpower and are savouring that weekly moment for just the best laugh ever. It is such simple format but totally works and Peter Kay is just one of the funniest men ever. Ratings soared and for me the man can do no wrong. The on screen chemistry with Sian Gibson who plays Kayleigh is just so natural and you can actually imagine them as your own work colleagues. The big question is 'Will they get together?' 'Do we want them to?' I do!!! I just love them and think they would be great together. I just don't want it to spoil what they have already, oh get me! It''s not real Sue from the Brew!!! They are my favourite tv couple at the moment though. Keep watching it!
I managed to catch a documentary on Wednesday evening which was called Reported Missing. It was on BBC1 at 9pm and I was glued to the screen. Apparently someone is reported missing every two minutes and my goodness the tension and stress involved is unbelievable in the cases portrayed on this programme. I have experienced my son go missing in a supermarket for a matter of minutes and the relief when I saw him was immense but to go through hours and hours of not knowing must be the worst feeling. I won't go into too much about the series in case you want to go and watch it but I have full admiration for the police and other services who put their time and all their effort into helping to find these people, it is truly amazing. I had no idea what it takes or what people go through when dealing with this trauma so it's worth a watch to help everyone to understand.
This kind of leads well into Britains Got Talent which I haven't seen in full yet so I will have to leave my review of it till next week but I did catch the choir which included members of families who had loved ones who were missing. So emotional but I do love that the power of music and the love of singing has brought them together to connect. So good.
On my way back from my hols and on a lovely Travelodge tv I saw The first brand new episode of Doctor Who. Loved it and loved his new companion, Bill Potts played by Pearl Mackie. The first gay companion which I love and she has just fitted in very naturally alongside the Doctor. It's hard to believe this will be Peter Capaldi's last series, I feel I've just got used to him and now he is going. I could never make up my mind about him really as I loved Matt Smith's Doctor so much but have grown to like him. There is big speculation at the moment as to who the new Doctor will be. Talk on big media is that it will be Kris Marshall which I am holding my breath to see it confirmed and some truth to the rumour. I think he would be excellent and very popular from some comments made already. Guess we will have to see.
So I haven't done to bad for saying that I've been away. The Scottish Highlands and my wonderful family won my views this week. Yep sometimes my family are worth a watch, they make me smile and laugh so much, precious moments to treasure. A lot of eating and drinking, was even to full to watch Masterchef. No more food!!!
Take care for now and I'll be back for Music Monday tomorrow.
Pass the Remote
Every Sunday I will review the TV for the week.
