Woah sorry I'm a bit late I just got completely carried away with Kylie at Hyde Park Live on the Red Button but I'll talk about her tomorrow night because she's all about music. You need to just catch up with the BBC coverage though because there is such big news there. Oh Lordy!!!
So what has been happening this week? Well we've had a new series start called Press which is about two rival newspapers....The Post a tabloid and The Herald which is a more left leaning newspaper. This is a great idea for drama, there are going to be some great stories involving ethics and finding some sort professional balance in this kind of industry. A great start, I liked it, it's going to be a good gritty show to watch. It is written by Mike Bartlett who wrote Doctor Foster so it should be good right? You can find it on BBC1 on Thursday evenings at 9pm. It has a great cast including the great David Suchet, Charlotte Riley from Peaky Blinders and Ben Chaplin from Apple Tree Yard. So give it a go, see what you think.
Another starter this week was Wanderlust which is about a couple who are finding themselves in a situation where their marriage has hit a bit of a rut and the first episode sees them sleeping with other people to see if that's the kind of excitement they need but is it? Well we'll see. Not sure about this one yet, it didn't grab me completely but I'll give it a chance and see what happens. I want to like it as it has Toni Collette starring in it whom I love after seeing her in Muriels Wedding amongst other things. and also Steven Mackintosh who is also a great actor. It could turn out quite entertaining, I would never have thought of putting these two actors together but it will be interesting to see how it goes. I've only seen one episode and I never judge a tv show on just one viewing so I will come back to that.
If anyone is wondering where my views on Age Before Beauty went well that was one I had to leave behind. I did watch a few but for me it just wasn't enough to keep me watching. Some people did find it to their taste though so that's good, we can't all like the same things. If I come back to it I'll let you know.
If you have been watching Stan Lee's Lucky Man another series has concluded there. What a great series, I just love this and didn't Rupert Penry-Jones make the ultimate baddy? My goodness I so wanted James Nesbitt to sort him out. A lot of ups and downs and losses too but it looks as though it may have been left open for another series. I hope so.
I will hopefully catch you tomorrow for Music Monday, it's been a busy weekend with Proms in the Park at Hyde Park in London which I attended so I will be chatting about that. Thank you for being here this evening though and you all take care.
Pass the Remote
Every Sunday I will review the TV for the week.
