Hello everyone,
This weekend I'll have a rare evening mostly to myself and since it's been a long week, I fancied finding a few options for some boxsets. I have quite eclectic tastes, so I'm open to any and all suggestions. What do you watch on the box and what would you recommend?

    Thanks for all the suggestions so far!

    I've heard good things about Peaky Blinders and Grimm, so will have to check them out.

    My other half never shuts up about Eastenders, so while I'm sure it's great, I'll probably give it a miss @Vanessa1968! :lol: Are there any other soaps you’re into?

    I am not into soaps, like crime and documentaries, but there are so may evenings when there is nothing to interest me. Have an amazon fire stick which is good, plenty to watch on there.

    Emerald, eastenders, real housewives, line of duty, most crime series. The good fight. Series on amazon.

    Line of duty was so good @debbiedo49! I liked silent witness as well. I have just started Game of Thrones... I know I'm so far behind!

    Riverdale is the most recent thing to get me hooked, but its topic of choice lost me in Series 3. It just wasn't my thing.

    Before that it was Zoo, which was epic for the first two seasons. And season 3 was terrible.

    Walking dead! Can’t believe no one else has suggested it!!
    I really liked Dexter, Game of Thrones and Line of Duty too so might have to check out your other suggestions @Kate_Scope
    I also love a bit of Eastenders!
  • mel_4earsmel_4ears Member Posts: 33 Courageous
    I've started watching Van Helsing, which is a little gory for me, but I'm going to stick with it a bit. And also Hemlock Grove.

    Is anyone into The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina?

    Also, I'm a big Star Trek fan.

    True Blood and Californication are worth a binge if you have loads of time.  Hank Moody in Californication was my roll model which is probably why Im such a mess! Guffaw!  :D Seriously good though and funny.
  • Hart86Hart86 Member Posts: 394 Pioneering
    Oooh I forgot about True Blood! I really enjoyed that 
  • Kell430Kell430 Member Posts: 59 Courageous
    I hated Tru  Blood the series loved the books though.  I don't watch much tv I'm much more of book worm, but I do have to watch NCIS xxx

    Something that always makes me laugh is The Big Bang Theory.  I also enjoy reality programmes such as Goggle-Box and First Dates, as they are quite light-hearted too!  I used to enjoy all the soaps, but got a bit fed-up with them so now just watch River City (Scottish soap).  I'm a bit of a geek when it comes to political programmes and enjoy Question Time, This Week and Peston.  One drama that I am enjoying at the moment is Gentleman Jack.  :smiley:

    Oooh I forgot about 24, really enjoyed that too @Richard_Scope!

    @Ails I love Big Bang Theory, great light humour. So sad it’s finished (although I’ve not watched the last season yet, so no spoilers!!) I do like some reality TV for easy watching. Did you ever see The Circle??

    I haven't watched the final series of Big Bang either so don't worry,@Hart86.  Still watching earlier episodes.  I have heard about the Circle,but never watched it.  :smile:
