What I’ve Been Watching – April

April saw the return of the amazing Game of Thrones, as well as the continuation of my favourites, such as Grey’s Anatomy and The Good Wife.

TV

Game of Thrones

I honestly didn’t know how Season 4 could possibly improve on what’s gone before, but boy, it’s really started with a bang. There’s really no telling which characters will make it through to the next episode, so it can be quite a tense watch. At the moment, I feel that there’s lots of stuff going on and its difficult to keep track. Needless to say I cannot wait for each new episode!

Suits

 

We’ve been watching Suits on Netflix from the beginning and love it. It’s got such a great witty banter, as well as great characters. We’ve since bought series 3 and pretty much devoured that while on holiday! If you like The Good Wife and Grey’s Anatomy, then this one is definitely for you.

I’m still enjoying the current series of The Good Wife and Nashville on Channel 4 and we’ve also been watching The Good Wife on Netflix from the beginning too. Even better the second time round.

Film

 The Hobbit

Now I’m not a massive Hobbit/Lord of the Rings fan and this did nothing to improve that. Long, drawn out, a bit dull, it really wasn’t for me. I can’t believe there’s still another one to go. Needless to say I got plenty of knitting done while watching it.

Thor: The Dark World

I really enjoyed the first Thor. What’s not to like? Decent storyline, a bit of adventure, great cast. This one, however, wasn’t as good. It felt a bit like pulling teeth, like it didn’t really get going. Some of the fight scenes really drag, like, we know you’re powerful and can destroy everything, but can you just get on with it? Part of me really hopes they don’t bother with a third, but then I thought that with Iron Man, and look how that turned out.

I don’t seem to have watched much in April, either that or I can’t remember them! If you’ve discovered anything worth watching, let me know!

Tuesday Treat – Game of Thrones is back!

For some, April means Spring time, warmer weather, lighter evenings and knowing that summer is on its way. For me, it means the return of Game of Thrones and it’s been a long time coming! There’s no way on this earth I’ll ever read the books, they’re far too big. So I’ve had to wait since last summer to find out what’s next for the residents of the Seven Kingdoms and whether winter will actually arrive in this season (It’s been threatening since the first episode!)

Game of Thrones is one of the best TV series I’ve seen and is up there with the likes of The Wire, The Sopranos, Breaking Bad and my all time favourite, The Walking Dead. Yes, there’s lots of blood, sex and violence, but it’s very well written and you are enthralled from the excellent opening credits to the final curtain. Just like The Walking Dead, everyone is expendable and I seem to tense up throughout every episode, waiting to see if my favourite characters will survive. It’s well a watch if you haven’t got the GoT bug!

What’s your unmissable TV? Do you find that book/comic adaptations make for the best viewing?
