What I'm Watching: Current TV Show Favourites

Game Of Thrones
If you don't already watch this, then go and watch it right now. Even if you don't think you like it, you do. We watched a couple of episodes, left it a few months and then started over again and loved it. We are now into season six and everything is uncertain for our favourite characters. "Hold the door" was heart-breaking! I won't say too much, as I don't want to spoil anything for anyone that hasn't caught up yet, but this fantasy drama is a must-watch! Excellent story and cast, but not for the faint-hearted.
This American drama, based on the Stephen King novel, follows English teacher, Jake Epping (played by James Franco), who is set the task of travelling back in time to prevent the JFK assassination. Being predominantly set in the 60's, I love the style of this drama and James Franco delivers a great performance. The past has ways of reminding Jake that he shouldn't be there and many diversions are placed in his path to distract and disrupt his true task of saving JFK.
Agatha Raisin
This new TV series is based on books by Marion Chesney, following Agatha Raisin, a semi-retired PR guru and wannabe detective. I am in love with Agatha's character; a rather high-maintenance woman, played by the quirky Ashley Jenson, who chooses fashion over practicality and tries to adapt to living in the Cotswolds, a world away from her former busy London lifestyle. Agatha encounters a series of mysterious murders that are just asking to be solved, so she takes it upon herself to do just that!
Love, Nina
This new British TV series is also based on a book, Love, Nina: Despatches From Family Life by Nina Stibbes. Narrated by Nina though the letters she sends her sister, this fun and slightly profound comedy-drama follows young Nina, who arrives in 1980's London to work as a nanny.
