Currently Watching: October 2018


This blog post is coming a lot later than intended, it’s something I have been meaning to do for ages but I’ve just been super busy with uni work. Which is going to be my main focus for the next few months but in between class and assignments, I like to take a break and watch some TV. So here are all the things I have been watching in October!


We are starting off with Gilmore Girls once more. I didn’t really watch a lot of the show last month, but this month I have had it on basically non-stop. It’s such a good show for autumn, an easy watch and just one of those shows you wanna curl up in bed and watch all day. So that’s basically what I’ve been doing.

I haven’t given up on my quest of watching Vampire Diaries and then the Originals, but it has definitely been put on hold for a while. I think I was overwatching Vampire Diaries last month and so I wanted to take a bit of a break before I dived in again. I left off watching about halfway through season 4, which means I should be moving onto the Originals very soon.


This month, I have also been watching a lot of Chopped. It’s really random but the only cooking competition I like to watch. Don’t even know how I got hooked on this show, I think it was on randomly on Food Network one day…so I watched and now every so often I go through periods where I watch it non-stop. And I guess October is one of those periods. I probably won’t watch it again for months now haha.


The new season of Riverdale has officially started and I am not sure how to feel about it. I feel like I have to continue watching this show because I’ve watched the first two seasons and feel like I’m invested. Even though the storylines are crazy and I don’t even really like the mystery that much. I mean, this whole cult thing they’re trying to do is cute but I’m not excited about it.

I think I just need to take a break from watching teen mystery shows, Pretty Little Liars disappointed me greatly and now I feel like any other show with the same vibe will do the same. But like I said, I’ve started watching it now, so I want to see it through until the end. Plus, KJ Apa is real cute.


The new season of Dynasty has also started and unlike with Riverdale, I’m actually super excited about this show. I love it so much, and Elizabeth Gillies is bae. I’m a little mad that they killed off one of the main characters but with what happened at the end of the first season, there was no way that everyone was going to survive unscathed.

There have only been a few episodes so far, but I’m always eagerly waiting for the next one.


The last show that I am watching this month, and actually, the one I just got caught up on yesterday is How To Get Away With Murder. I started watching this one last year on Netflix and was hooked ever since.

The beginning episodes of every season of HTGAWM always draw me in straight away. They always have the same format of showing you flashes of the night of a murder and then showing you the events that lead up to that point. And I fall into the trap of obsessing over it every time. It’s so good.

Unlike other mystery shows that I watch, this one has a proper timeline and makes more sense than most! That being said I feel like last season got a bit far-fetched. Which is saying something because it is already a crazy far-fetched show. But I suppose they have to keep pushing the bar to get people to keep watching. But I’m all for it if it means more Annalise Keating.

And so those are all the shows that I am watching this month! I imagine in the next few months the shows I watch won’t change very much now I have shows that are still airing regularly, but you never know. I gotta find something to watch when my shows go on Christmas hiatus. So, I’ll keep you posted. And if you have any suggestions for shows then let me know!

Currently Watching: September 2018


I want to add a currently watching section to the blog, kind of like my currently reading one for Goodreads but it doesn’t give me the option to add a widget, so I’m going to make blog posts every so often.

I am currently at a point where I am looking for some new shows to watch, this usually happens when one of my shows ends but it takes me ages to find a new show that I like so for now, I am rewatching a couple of shows.


The first one being Gilmore Girls. This show is very chill and something that is nice to throw on when you’re just chilling and want something on in the background. I only watched the show for the first time at the start of this year and I don’t know why it took me so long to get into it because I love it. The Netflix spin-off…not so much.


The next show I am rewatching is the Vampire Diaries! The reason why I am rewatching this is that it has been a couple years since the show ended and I miss it. Another reason why I am rewatching is to finally watch the Originals.

The Originals is a spinoff of the Vampire Diaries that started around season 3/4 of Vampire Diaries about the Original vampires, the reason why I didn’t watch it while Vampire Diaries was still airing was that I felt like it was too much of the same world to watch every week so I stuck with Vampire Diaries.

My plan is to watch Vampire Diaries up until the point where the spinoff starts and watch that. Then I will probably go back to the Vampire Diaries because there is another spinoff coming for it very soon I believe which I am very excited about because who doesn’t need a little more of Mystic Falls in their life?


Aside from shows I am rewatching, there are also shows I am watching that are still airing such as Suits. The new season started a couple of months ago and I am enjoying it a lot more than I thought I would.

I felt like it would be weird without Mike and Rachel but so far the new season has been really good.

Other shows which I am watching which are still airing are Riverdale and Dynasty, both of which do not return until October.


And the last show that I am watching is Cable Girls, also known as Las chicas del cable which is a Spanish drama on Netflix which is English dubbed. I found this last year and I was hooked right away. I just discovered that season 3 has been released to Netflix so you know I will be binge-watching this as soon as possible.

Those are all the shows I am currently watching, I look forward to the return of Dynasty and Riverdale to give me other things to look forward to weekly. In the meantime, I am more than happy to be rewatching some old shows because then I don’t have to stress about finding some new ones.

If you have any suggestions for shows I might like then feel free to leave them in the comments below.
