I'm trying to type tonights entry with blurry, swollen, mascara stained eyes. No I've not gone ten rounds with Nicola Adams but just watched The Good Karma Hospital. It's the last in the series as well, ohhh more tears! How will I cope. This programme has been my Sunday evening treat and I've loved every minute, I don't want to spoil it but you will need a massive box of tissues and I would chuck a make up wipe around the face because you will not be needing that mascara unless you like the panda look.
It was beautifully filmed and it wasn't just the sad bit (that I'm not going to talk about) but tears of joy as well for Lydia and her love life. I am in recovery though from my emotional outburst and doing a happy dance as karma has been restored (see what I did there) and we will get a second series. Dan Sefton please make Ruby and Gabriel snog a lot in the next series!!! Well done ITV for such a delight and congratulations to all the lovely cast and crew.....big pat on the back or grab one of Greg's dodgy cocktails.
I'm loving Prime Suspect 1973 not just for the storyline but for the nostalgic look back at the 70's. It was so funny to see Jane phoning for a taxi on the old phone. The type that your parents put a big lock it if you were banned from using it. You couldn't walk round with this baby, although you could wander a little way, as long as your cable would let you. What I could never understand about those phones was why the nine was right at the end of the dial, ringing 999 in an emergency would take forever while you waited for the dial to go back around. It was good to see the owner had written the telephone number on the dial, it was mainly there so you remembered your number on answering the phone. saying your number when answering the phone, can you imagine doing that now? Most of us can't remember our mobile numbers but I may try it on my landline next time in rings, which isn't often. That will stump the caller trying to sell me double glazing or refund my PPI. Great drama though and another success in the bag for ITV. I see many TV awards coming your way ITV. Just call me Mystic Sue.
Broadchurch is getting very interesting and what is Trish hiding? I'm watching this and all you can hear is me saying 'ooooh, really? oh I say'. That's when I'm awake, I really struggle with the 9pm drama time. I have to play catch up as I just seem to relax and get comfy on the sofa and next minute I'm waking up in time for the credits. I am not bored or uninterested by any means, I just automatically switch off at about 9.12pm so annoying. I've tried drinking leaded tea/coffee (caffeinated), sitting upright and apart from standing up and watching it I fear I may still fall asleep, it's possible surely? Thank goodness for the iplayer and hub, it was invented by a serial snoozer like me.
Now The Replacement I stayed awake for, hurray! Only because I'd been out to a meeting previously so my brain was fully active and not prepared to switch of at the drama deadline. This is so good though isn't it? Paula is just so creepy, it's the last one of the series on Tuesday so she must come undone and be seen for what we all think she is, or is she? Can't wait for that one.
I'm all up to date with Nashville now and waiting in anticipation for season five. I don't know what I'm going to do without this either. I am an official 'Nashie' now. I stupidly joined some Nashville groups on Facebook and now know what happens later on. I can't believe that but it's ok, you can't really help the spoilers I suppose, unless you just do away with social media altogether and hibernate. I can't do that, I might miss something.
So into another week we go, a lot of finishers coming up and some new starters, Vera being one for a return next Sunday so it's all change again.
Have a great week, thanks for reading and I will catch you for more TV next Sunday. In the meantime please come back for my regular spot tomorrow.....
Pass the Remote
Every Sunday I will review the TV for the week.
