What’s On TV?

We never think of ourselves  as big telly watchers yet every night without fail we end up couch-potatoing. It’s just so easy to mentally switch off in front of the T, isn’t it?  As of next week though we are promising ourselves that we will go for a walk at least every other night before plonking ourselves down to watch the box. at least then we can feel slightly less-unfit……..

  • Lynda La Plante has done it again. ‘Beyond Suspicion’, shown over 3 nights this week has proved to be another extremely watchable drama although it’s got to be said the ending was a tad disappointing.
  • I hadn’t really watched Coronation Street for years until the tram-crash ‘Four Funerals and a Wedding’ storyline shown in the run-up to Christmas. Now it’s got me hooked again and frankly I haven’t got the time to get drawn into a Soap. It’s so easy to watch though and Steve’s wife Becky, is a cracking actress. Corrie never fails to raise a chuckle at some point in every episode unlike its BBC counterpart Eastenders which is monumentally depressing.
  • Daughter Maddie has been rivetted by ‘The Brain’ on BBC4 this week – something to do with the 3 Medical School interviews she has coming up this month? Not to imply that she is some kind of boffin, mind you, as she, along with her sisters and various boyfriends are completely hooked on Desperate Housewives, which they are watching, one box set after the other in very rapid succession.
  • The unmissable Silent Witness is back. Emilia Fox plays a very credible forensic pathologist but her unfeasibly good-looking, dashing, ‘tall, dark and handsome’, sidekick was clearly not in the room when the acting genes were handed out. HeAlec Baldwin in 30ROCK‘s kind of like the child actors in the Narnia films. Need I say more?
  • Off to watch another episode from our Christmas Box Set of 30ROCK. It’s not a laugh-out-loud comedy but keeps us smiling throughout. Have always been partial to Alec Baldwin and it’s nice to see how comfortably and easily he’s embraced middle-age. He plays himself for laughs and the portly, jargon-loving, ‘thinking outside the box’ character he portrays is very likeable.

Mrs C
In a nutshell, I'm a Mum to three gorgeous daughters and two step-sons who are gradually making their own lives and leaving Mr. C and I plenty of time to enjoy life just as a couple again. I'm a big fan of Afternoon Tea & Corrie and hate, with a vengeance, violence in films! I love reading 'proper' books though I concede that my birthday Kindle was brilliant on holidays.
