Oh what did you think to the end of Hard Sun? I had to rewatch the ending again as I had watched it six weeks ago after the first one. The whole series was available to watch straight away on iplayer so I took advantage. I quite glad I had another watch as I was a bit muddled the first time after feeling that some things didn't get answered in the end for me.
For example what did Butler do exactly to give Hicks the excuse to kill him? We got a hint of him seeing something on a laptop in a reflection in that bedroom but what was it? So I need another series which some people say cannot happen as that's it, the end of the world happened a bit earlier than expected. Apparently though there's rumoured to be another five series planned, this could give me the answers I require.
I loved it, I thought the sub plots were a good addition and I thought Renko played by Agyness Deyn was just brilliant. She kicked ass didn't she? Woah!! I kind of liked the love hate thing they had going on as it made it so unpredictable as to what was going to happen. Some have been disappointed but I want more, quick before the sun burns out.
Silent Witness came to an end this week and the first part on Monday left me a bit bewildered. Why's that Sue from the Brew? Well I found it hard to believe Nikki would be running back into a house where there was gunman free and that the armed response unit would let her. It was all a bit far fetched for me. I was forever shouting at the telly, no wonder Nikki got herself buried underground in the last series she just won't do as she's told. maybe it would be boring if she did. The second part was better and I felt all warm and fluffy when her chap surprised her for Christmas......ahhhhhhh.
I binge watched Next of Kin after my brother recommended it and so glad I did, blimey nearly missed out on this one. It was packed solid with tense, edge of your seat drama. Mona Harcourt becomes wrapped up in a tale of radicalisation and terroism after her brother is murdered whilst working overseas. It was a brilliant series and I was glued to it. I can recommend it if you haven't seen it. Well done to all involved a big hit from me.
Call the Midwife made me cry last week, it was so hard to see those children taken away from their parents - my heart just broke as I think as a parent the first thing you do is put yourself in that situation and that's what got me in tears. I just couldn't imagine it. I'm so worried about Trixie. She's back on the booze and has also split with Christopher so we'll have to see what happens this week. Lets hope she gets some help because we love her don't we? Well we love them all, it's such a heart warming drama - I look forward to watching.
Girlfriends ended this week and what an ending. Those girls just kept getting themselves deeper and deeper in trouble. I cringed with what they were planning next but hey did that leave this series with a possible hint for a second? I hope so as I need to know whether Micky survives the suitcase. I actually looked at one while out shopping today and gave it a shake just to see if he's ended up in the middle of Dunelm in some sort of twist to the plot. Along way from where he was left drifting away though eh? You never know with Kay Mellor. I really enjoyed this, it was funny, easy to watch and I think I needed something light to watch after all these intense dramas.
I'm looking forward to the last of McMafia, well I'm not as I want it to carry on forever but not sure my nerves can take it. What an ending to the last episode. He's in trouble now. I do feel that all the action happens in the last five minutes but that's ok, I enjoy the build up and now come to expect that my jaw will lock into the OMG position. I'll come back and fully review this next week after the finale. Please don't let it be a disappointing ending!!!
Phew.....that's it for this week so onto another. New dramas to come and the return of Shetland which I'm looking forward to. Be good and I'll catch you again tomorrow for Music Monday if you fancy it.
For now though, take care.
