I started this blog because I have always been a massive fan of TV, and since I graduated from a Film and Media degree I have greatly missed writing about it. However, I don’t like writing reviews because that tends to mean writing negative things about shows or episodes you didn’t enjoy and that doesn’t appeal to me. I want to write positive things and let people know about all the fantastic shows they would love.
So then I hit upon what I would like to write about. There’s more quality TV available than ever before, and now with streaming becoming ever more popular, we are overwhelmed with options of what to watch. It’s wonderful and fun, but sometimes you find yourself spending more time trying to find what you want to watch than actually watching something. Especially since more often than not I want something to fit a particular mood I’m in, and as great as the numerous lists about the best TV out there are, they aren’t very useful in that sense. Sometimes all I want is a show that will help me stay calm before an interview, or help when I’m feeling lonely. Or perhaps all I want is a show with a mystery that isn’t about a murder, or a show that gives me all the clues I need to solve a mystery. That will what I will try to do with this blog.
Each post will take a particular mood (e.g. loneliness), need (e.g. needing a break from studying or work), or category (e.g. a mystery without the murder), and list some shows that I think will help fulfil those wants. Each list will only include things I have watched enough of to know if they fit (this may mean there are choices left off that seem obvious to you, and I would appreciate if you would suggest them to me as they may be useful to others and I love recommendations on what to watch!). I will also try to have a variety of tone and genre in my suggestions to suit different tastes. I will also try for a mix of well-known and lesser known shows.
I have always liked working out the exact right show for someone’s tastes or what they are in the mood for. It can be frustrating to be in a particular mood and unable to find something to satisfy that craving. I want to help find the perfect show for you.
Therefore if there is a category you would like recommendations for please let me know! I hope this blog is of help to some people.
