Top Ten Tuesday is held over at That Artsy Reader Girl, where every week bloggers list their top 10 being asked about. This week the topic is Bingeworthy TV Shows/Amazing Movies
The new fall season may be starting in the US, but over here, we usually get shows a year or so later if we’re lucky from the US, and then it’s a toss up as to whether the Australian TV stations will actually show them completely if they’re not Grey’s Anatomy. No seriously, it’s pretty shit, and yes, Australian consumers are consistently blamed for every reason as to why Australian film and TV isn’t doing well: why would we support TV stations that have no consistency or you know show a season fron beginning to end n one go without stopping a season mid-way, bringing it back in a couple of months and marketing it as a new season.
This is why Netflix is so popular. We don’t have to put up with crap of the other channels /rant over
This show will always be on the top of my list, and next to Star Trek (Next Gen or Original) I could it as one of the things shaped my love of genre movies and TV (and books, but more the first).
Let’s not talk about the two most recent seasons though shall we? There is nothing for me like following Mulder and Scully through every case and conspiracy, right through to the final shot of them together at the end.
Utterly heartrending, tense and compelling. If you have not watched this series, please do – David Tennant and the new HBIC on the Crown, Olivia Coleman, star.
I binged Christopher Eccelston’s season, and was well on my way to the others, when the new female Time Lord was announced – Jodie Whittaker, who is incidentally from Broadchurch. I’m still somewhat in shock maybe? eeing what she can do there, means I need to see this!
I feel like a reboot or something is looming, but the original? This is another show, made well before The X-Files, that made me understand that there’s sci fi out there, that’s not Star Trek and is fucking brilliant. It was camp, is probably dated, but it explored so many relevant themes, I just love it.
Idris Elba. If he’s never going to be Bond, this is the next best thing, because it’s dark, compelling and Luther is just riveting.
Started watching this on Netflix recently and it’s FUN! These ladies are fun, and supporting each other through one of the most chaotic things in their lives.
OMG. I did not stop laughing all through this show.
Things I’m looking forward to:
Based on a Lynda La Plante book, this movie has Viola Davis in the lead of a group of women completing a heist their husbands were planning before they died.
I tried reading the book, but didn’t stick with it, but I NEED To see this movie.
Okay, so this is about four life-long friends who have their book club for over 40 years together. And then they start reading the Fifty Shades Trilogy. It might be cheesy or whatever, but the cast? Jane Fonda, Mary Steenburgen, Candice Bergen and Diane Keaton.
This is one reboot I am actively on pins and needles for!!
