What I'm Watching this week

  • The Bay. This is a brilliant ITV series. Its started off very much like Broadchurch in its feeling and setting, but with a very different story. Two twins are missing, the lead cop has been overly familiar with the step-father in a romantic (not) alley way hook up - complicated !! Brilliant so far. Cannot wait for the next episode! 

  • Grace & Frankie. This is such a great program. When I started to watch it, I had no idea what it was going to be about, but the ensemble cast was impressive from the off. Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin as the two lead roles, with their respective (now ex-husbands) being played by Martin Sheen and Sam Waterson. The story is such a shock to start with, as you just don't expect it with this generation of actors, but its brilliant. Brilliantly scripted, brilliantly acted. As the episodes continue, the relationships develop and it becomes warm and funny, bitter and complicated and very real. I love this show. 

  • Emmerdale. Loving the whole "Joe's not really dead" storyline. I knew it! Finally, we know that Cain is not a murderer, which is a relief! I hate with a vengeance the Maya and Jacob story arc - hoping that one comes to an end sharpish as it is beyond gross. Kim Tate is back - ding dong the witch is back! Kerry meanwhile - such a cow bag - horrible dropping Dan like that. Love Emmerdales light and dark approach to storys - so entertaining. 

  • Corrie. Rana's death overshadows the whole street, with the revelation from Carla that she knew the roof was dangerous leading Kate to the police station. Gosh - I appreciate family drama, but grassing on one another? Really? Gary continues to be dodgy, but more dodgy than him, Nick and David still haven't been caught with Audrey's money. Surely only a matter of time!
