Although Autumn is the worst month statistically for those suffering with depression (Seasonal Affective Disorder especially is commonly worse as the days get shorter and the weather gets colder), I actually quite like it as a season.
I’m not a huge summer fan and the cosy nights in and Christmas shopping online really appeals to me more than heading off to the beach, avoiding wasps and getting sunburnt in places I didn’t even know were exposed to the sun.
Ed and I have been spending the cosy nights in watching some great TV so I thought I would share with you what we are currently watching, and yes, the main theme is horror, what can I say, I’m a big horror fan and Halloween is coming…
The Strain – Watch
I’m not sure how this isn’t something people have raved about. Ed and I hadn’t heard of it before we stumbled across it whilst looking through Sky Box Sets the other week. It’s now in its third series, with both series 1 and 2 available to catch up on. We’ve been binge watching since we found it and it’s definitely worth a watch. It’s fairly gory and on occasion I have felt a little sick just how gory it can be, but if you have a strong stomach, and enjoy medical/forensic/horror then this one is for you (just maybe avoid watching it whilst eating your dinner).
American Horror Story – Psycho – Fox
Ok, so this has literally only just started back in the UK on Friday night but it’s amazing! I so need to watch previous series as I have so far only watched Hotel, which I loved. This is not for the faint of heart as it’s quite a dark programme with plenty of gore and psychologically messed up scenes, but if you are a fan of the show or the genre in general then don’t miss it.
Friends – Comedy Central
Ok, so this is nothing new. I’ve always been a major Friends Fan though and secretly mourned when E4 gave up the rights and it moved to Comedy Central. However, when I moved in with Ed back in February, I realised I now had that channel and I’ve been back on the bandwagon ever since. I actually plan to watch Friends during my home birth – it never fails to cheer me up (apart from that episode with Ross and Rachel that just upsets me).
Impractical Jokers – Comedy Central
To be honest, we mainly watch this as it follows Friends on the same channel, however, I do find it quite amusing. It’s something to watch to pass the time away and if you need a nice easy laugh, although this style of humour isn’t for everyone and some of their gags are a little ridiculous with a lot of childishness involved.
