FOR THE LOVE OF | TV
I am back this week with my mini-series For The Love Of. Which I have now turned into a linky! This week I am blogging about my love of TV and what I have been watching this past month, so here is my top three TV programmes this month
This reimagining of the classic book and film is a coming-of-age story about a young orphan who is seeking love, acceptance and her place in the world. Anne, is a 13-year-old who has endured an abusive childhood in orphanages and the homes of strangers. In the late 1890s, Anne is mistakenly sent to live with aging siblings, Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert, who live on Prince Edward Island. Anne, proves to be uniquely spirited, imaginative and smart, transforms the lives of Marilla, Matthew and everyone else in their small town.
This short series of a remake of Anne Of Green Gables was brilliant. There has been mixed reviews about the series, but I really enjoyed the new outlook of life at Green Gables. I loved the way it delved into the backstory of the characters more deeply and the snippets of life Anne had before moving to the farm. It was darker than the original series but again, I really enjoyed it. Definitely give this adaptation a go if you haven’t already. I would highly recommend watching the original too!
Rayna James has had a successful country-music career, but lately, her popularity has started to fade. Her record label believes the solution is to have her open for up-and-comer Juliette Barnes on tour. Juliette is a schemer and wants nothing more than to steal Rayna’s spotlight. Rayna thinks her real chance is in another young woman, undiscovered songwriter Scarlett O’Connor. While Rayna struggles with her career, her father is busy messing with her private life. Encouraging her husband to run for election to be mayor of Nashville – against her wishes.
I found out about Nashville via #LittleLoves linky, hosted by Morgana over at coffee work sleep. My sister in law also mentioned it to me and said I would really enjoy it. I managed to watch all 3 seasons ready for seasons 4 release. I was gutted when it was dropped by ABC but thankfully CMT picked it up. I’m half way through season 5. Its a corker of a show and the music is great. I could listen to the sound track all day long. There are lots of twists and turns and the cast is amazingly good. Definitely check it out!
Clay Jensen, a shy high school student, returns home from school to find he has received a package in the mail. It contains seven double-sided cassette tapes used by Hannah Baker, a classmate who has recently committed suicide. Each tape details a reason why she killed herself. The tapes were sent to various other people before arriving at Clay’s door. While listening to the tapes, Clay rides around town and visits the various places mentioned by Hannah. Finally coming to the 13 reasons why she killed herself.
I am only half way through this season and I have to admit, I am struggling with it. ALOT. I have heard great things about it and I really should carry on with it. I actually find it really depressing. Its definitely a tough watch and you have to be in the right frame of mind to watch it. You never know, I may have finished it by the time next months For The Love Of, TV goes live!
Do you have a favourite TV programme at the moment? Leave a comment below or blog about it and link up below! I am always looking for new Seasons to watch. If you have not watched the above I have blogged about then I would highly recommend you do. Obviously the last one wasn’t exactly a “you must watch” as I am uncertain with it myself!
