Random Thursday. My summer TV line-up.

Hallo meine Lieben,

I hope you are all enjoying your week and doing great. I do like to watch TV shows so this week LinEm and I want to talk about the TV show line-up. 



I have to admit that I did not put much effort into the summer TV line-up yet. I have no ideas what shows will run during the summer. So I need to figure this out at some point. The problem is that I never have enough time to watch all the shows I would like to. I still have so many shows I need to catch up with. If you have any recommendations though, please let me know. 



There are two shows I want to check out. Orange is the new Black is one of them. I absolutely loved the first season. And I enjoy anything crime/prison themed. So this really is a show I will keep watching. I don't really like the main character and her boyfriend but the other characters are very entertaining. Can't wait to see what will happen next.
Another show I want to keep watching is True Blood. Not because it is the greatest show on earth but because it is very entertaining, I can relax while I watch it and it is just pure enjoyment. My guilty pleasure if you want to call it like that. 

Speaking of movies: I am not a fan of movies based on books but I need to see "The Fault in our Stars". 

There are also so many books I want to read over the summer. Today I discovered that there is a new Erik Winter novel by Åke Edwardson. Score!

So what do you want to watch during the summer?

  2. I've watched Royal Pains and Franklin & Bash every summer for the past few years. They're the perfect summertime shows for me b/c they're completely mindless. :) I like funny shows a lot - dramas aren't really my thing.

    1. I have never heard about Royal Pains, I will have to check it out! Franklin & Bash is a show about some lawyers, isn't it? I think I have seen a trailer! I like funny shows a lot too! And sometimes mindless shows are what you need. :)

  6. Over here in the UK, we have great TV drama including stuff like Broadchurch, Sherlock and just now Happy Valley which was brilliant. Once my daughter's exams are over, she says we are going to spend the summer watching lots of American stuff online. She's already started making me watch the American version of The Office which I tried to fight but must admit am absolutely loving! Here's to a great summer !

    1. I have read about Broadchurch and it it sounds so interesting! I definitely want to check it out this summer. Also Sherlock. Seems like everybody loves that show! I have never heard of Happy Valley but I will look it up! Thank you for the recommendations! There are a lot of good shows out there, The Office is hilarious! One of my fave shows right now is Moone Boy, can't wait for a new season. It's an Irish show.

  12. May I recommend another British crime show, The Fall? It’s on Netflix and stars Gillian Anderson as the cop. It’s about a string of murders in Belfast, North Ireland. I thought the show was pretty good and I know you love Scandi novels as I do! They will be having a 2nd season sometimes next year.
