Yes we are back to some sort of normal with the old telly box. My programmes seem to be all where they should be now with no one playing the odd game of footy or popping off for a quick visit to Wimbledon.
I'm watching Nashville which is going to be coming to an end very soon so I'm watching it very slowly so that it lasts as long as possible. That sounds daft doesn't it? I just don't want it to end. Oozles of seasons and I love these people in Nashville like they are my own family. I want to see them all settled and happy playing their country tunes and living happily every after. For goodness sake if Deacon and Jessie don't get together I may swear or if Juliette doesn't find some kind of happiness I will not be happy. That woman.....I think I've loved her and hated her all at the same time. I've gone ahhhh poor Juliette one minute and then shouted 'you nasty woman' (maybe not that polite) the next. Will be sad to see it end though.....only three more episodes to go.
We saw the return of Stan Lee's Lucky Man this week with the gorgeous James Nesbitt. I love this but did worry where it had ended after Season 2 but some clever writey person has been very good to make it all quite clear without having to watch a little catch up trailer. I'm on track now and can remember Harry's past and he's still donning his bracelet of hell and someone is still chasing him to pinch it from him. It is really good and so good to see Mr Nesbitt on our screens again. You can catch the new series on Sky One on Friday evenings at 9pm.
Unforgotten was the other new starter this week and what a start. A body discovered in amongst the roadworks on the motorway. A good job that body wasn't by the side of the A52 in Derby as due to a financial shortage and a halt of the roadworks I fear any dead body would be there undiscovered for another ten years. So Cassie and Sunny are on the case and trying to discover the identity of this body and hopefully at some point they will find the killer. I think that's the point of the programme but we'll see. Great drama and so good to see it back. I love Nicola Walker and Sanjeev Bhaskar together, they make a great crime busting team.
I have caught up with two episodes so far of Picnic at Hanging Rock. This is quite a dark spooky drama starring Natalie Dormer who is fabulous in her role as Hester Appleyard who starts a college for young women. One Valentines Day the girls go for a picnic and three of the girls mysteriously disappear and now it's a mission to find out what actually happened. I do find I have got to carry on watching as I now need to know what happened so I'll keep you posted unless you're watching it too and in that case you'll know. This drama is on Wednesday's BBC2 9pm.
Well that's it for this week....I'm off to join Poldark, only watching him from the comfort of my sofa but that's ok. Please come back tomorrow for Music Monday but for now you all take care.
Yes it's over and congratulations to France for winning the World Cup and after Wimbledon too we can get back to some sort of TV normality again. There will be something else I'm sure, as I sit here the BBC are trying to flog me a watch at the Tour De France but I think I'll leave that for now.
Our Girl got bumped out of the way this week with football and a marathon tennis session. I believe it will be re scheduled so just keep an eye on your TV guides on that. I think that was a bit rude to keep cancelling and I don't think anyone should be playing tennis till 11pm. The fit sports people can probably manage it but I need my cuppa and night-shirt on way before then. I also find my neighbours get a bit miffed with the balls going over the fence so late. They don't have that problem on Centre Court do they?
Poldark saw a death again.....they are knocking a few cast members out of this aren't they? I don't wish anything awful on anyone but I did want the Rev Ossie to get some sort of tick off for being a bit of a rotter. Watch out for his mum Lady Whitworth as I think she will want justice for the murder of her son. Played by the fabulous Rebecca Front I think she may pick up where Ossie left off but obviously not with the sexy bits.
It was great to see Keeping Faith on BBC 1 this week after it aired on BBC Wales. Due to the massive popularity of this series shown on BBC iplayer too it got his well deserved air on prime time tv and so it should. I binge watched it on BBC iplayer and really enjoyed it in fact I have posted about it quite a bit here and also on my Music Monday feature as the soundtrack is amazing. So get a watch of this, I'm not going to give anything away and I am actually watching again. Tune in on BBC1 Thursday's at 9pm. Take a look at my categories for posts relating to this if you want to know more about it but just watch for spoilers as I didn't think it would go to main BBC. A second series has already been commissioned so that's fab news.
Tonight sees a new series of the crime drama Unforgotten with Nicola Walker and Sanjeev Bhaskar. If you haven't seen this before catch up on the last two series on ITV Hub as it is brilliant. That's my one to watch this coming week
So here's to a rest from sport for the time being and the return of super drama and great entertainment. I have actually loved the World Cup so will miss it, only another four years until the next one.
Thank you for reading today, join me again tomorrow for Music Monday where I will be telling you all about Rock Choir Live our summer concert which took place last night. Eeeek it was amazing!
Take care till then.
Pass the Remote
Every Sunday I will review the TV for the week.
