Monday Musings – What We’re Watching this Autumn 

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.
