Teresa's Tv Treats

Due to trying to have a life I haven't spent too much time in front of the television in March... however I have caught up with some series that I had got behind of and started to enjoy some box-sets either on DVD or Netflix.
So what has been keeping me entertained during the madness of March.
  • An hour to Save a Life - a fabulous docu-drama which followed a number of trauma teams across the UK either on road or air doing their utmost to save a life in the Golden Hour (the 1st hour post incident). I admire any one who works in the medical profession especially the NHS... this programme highlighted what an amazing service they provide and the life and death situations they deal with daily. Remarkable TV and a fantastic showcase of how valuable our NHS service is.. 
  • Line of Duty - series 2 - I missed this completely first time round, but was hooked from the off from the 1st episode. We all predicted the outcome at work from the 1st episode and i'm pleased to say that my 3 detective moments were true on completion!.... this was thrilling from the start, internal police investigations, witness protection, murder and bent police officers, made for gripping viewing. Keely Hawes was fabulous and story & acting kept you on a pendulum of guessing wether she was involved in the deaths of police officers and a protected witness... 
  • The Arrow - series 1  - very behind with this, but now get what the fuss is about, sheer escapism from the start, filled with intrigue, glamour and very sexy men!...Perfect way to de-stress and unwind.
  • Good Wife & Nashville - Thursday night TV treats for T... loving that they are back to back and completely hooked on both.... 
  • and finally my guilty pleasure of Gogglebox. This programme is wrong on so many levels but sheer genius. The premise of filming people in their home watching TV with them discussing what they think, its what every critic, reviewer and presenter wishes they could say but can't. The families are diverse and incredibly entertaining.
What have you been watching lately....would love to hear...

I only recently discovered Gogglebox and couldn't agree with you more about it being a guilty pleasure. I love the boozy couple!

Line of Duty has somehow passed me by. Must add it to my (lengthy) to-watch list! x
