    on iplayer I can recommend Waterloo Rd some great story lines and 13 series to watch, on prime if you have it The Walking Dead whilst not usually my thing I really enjoyed.

    Hi yes I watched the walking dead series already and like you it's not my usual thing but I really enjoyed it. I will give Waterloo Road a look on BBC iplayer then, I haven't seen any of them hopefully I get into it then I will have plenty to watch if there is 13 series thank you 👍

    I love the Walking Dead and some of the spin offs from it, one is more like gritty and the other is much more young adulty and aimed at a younger audience I think but still good if you like the walking dead universe <3

    I've binge-watched all of the Traitors series on BBC iplayer, not my usual thing but I've found them so entertaining!! 

    What sort of TV do you normally like watching? :)

    It's a light hearted detective drama series set in the Caribbean.  Every show starts with a death, followed by the team solving the case.  Sunny, bright and colourful which is nice in the middle of bleak UK winters. :)

    I rarely watch TV but one show I LOVED was the "Vikings" series.

    Be aware though, it is incredibly violent, explicit and disturbing. But I think that's what makes it good because the Vikings did some awful things. It's right that the viewer gets disturbed by the subjects.

    Do you have any streaming accounts like Netflix or Disney plus @emmaanear

    I enjoyed Extraodinary on Disney plus if you have it. It's set in a world where everyone has a super power except one of the characters, it's a comedy. It was on there a while back but my housemate just started watching it and I'd forgotten about it! I think there's a new season coming out soon.

    I'm watching State of Happiness on iPlayer. It's in Norwegian and has subtitles. I also just watched Kin and Blue Lights which are Irish series and the Way, all also on iPlayer. All are very good. I have been watching a lot stuck in this hotel room 😲

    Oh and Happy Valley was really good too. I watched that last year.

    I watched the Walking Dead dubbed into German when I was learning the language on Duolingo a few years ago. That is a really enjoyable way to learn languages.

    Hey @Biblioklept yes I've also binge watched The Traitors and enjoyed it I think we would all love to be the traitor so we can be a bit naughty with no consequences 😂. I was glad the young lad, the traitor won the last series he deserved it because he played a blinding game, well done him 🎉🎉

    Hi @66Mustang I loved the vikings series too I watched them all from start to finish over the years and yep definitely violent but vikings were hard people living in a different time and also I had a little crush on Ragnor Lothbrook so it was worth watching just for that. Also Largather his first wife was my hero she rocked, was beautiful and fought as hard as the men 👌💪

    @Rosie_Scope I don't have Disney plus unfortunately but that sounds great I love any thing supernatural or with superpowers it gives me an escape from real life and I think we all need that sometimes

    Yes him and the tall guy were Traitors from the start and were loving every minute 😂 It must be hard lying straight to people's face but these are people u will never see again and like the young lad said winning that amount of money would change his families lives for the better, I was so glad for him.
