Being at home for the summer I’ve had a lot of spare time on my hands and sky TV back in my life so I’ve been doing what any sensible and spending my days lounging on the sofa glued to the TV so as I have no exciting life stories to share with you I thought I’d recommended my top 3 tv/films to watch on Sky
Switched At Birth
Switched at birth is a drama about two girls who were switched at birth (no surprise there if you read the title) I’d never heard of this series before but was flicking through sky box sets and just thought it would be easy watching for one or two episodes but weeks later I’m hooked and quite emotional that I have 3 episodes left till I finish the show. The show can be pretty predictable at times with every character falling in love with every person they meet. However, the reason I’ve loved this show is the themes it covers Dauphine one of the characters that had been switched at birth is deaf this disability is never forgotten throughout the series and the show constantly explores deaf culture and the challenges and positives to being deaf. It also explores culture and class with both families that are involved in the switch having very different backgrounds and having to appreciate each other’s experiences and fit into each other’s lives. As you can tell from rambling I love this series and am totally invested in the characters i’d highly reccomend it.
Daddy’s home is a film that falls under the genre of comedy, it stars Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg. I’d been wanting to watch this film for a while because it’s got Will Ferrell and well everything he does is good and who doesn’t love him! The plot is basically a Dad and a step-Dad who are both very different fighting over who’s the better dad. Sounds pretty boring really but as I predicted Will Ferrell makes this film with some proper laugh out loud moments and a family warmth to it, not that i would suggest watching this with young children! Overall its a good feel good movie and i cant wait for the second one to come out later this year.
If you haven’t ever watched this show where have been for the last 8 years?! It’s a comedy mockumentary based around the lives of a family who are each very different but gel together as a modern family. I’ve watched the show from the day it aired on Sky 1 and liked it but over the past month I’ve gone back and watched the whole series on Sky 1 box sets and I’m now in love with it binge watching it has made me enjoy the humour more as I’m now invested in the characters and love their little quirks I’m maybe a bit too invested with my mum having to remind me that it is not a real family! So if your looking for a feel good funny box set and for some reason haven’t tried this yet I highly recommend it
