So I’m currently sitting here eating chilli heatwave doritos and watching Orange is the New Black which I’ve only recently started. I’m on episode 8 and really finding it intriguing. Have any of you seen Orange is the New Black?

For those of you who aren’t sure what it’s about, to be honest I wasn’t when I started, the story follows the main character (who’s name I still haven’t caught if anyone wants to fill me in?) who’s been put in prison and her life there. Most of the fellow inmates are lesbians or bi which makes it quite funny in parts! In all honesty, it isn’t my all time favourite show that I can’t stand missing but it’s good enough to keep me wanting more. Even my dog watches it with me!

Background is a silver laptop opening Netflix. Foreground, in orange writing, are the words “Orange is the New Black”.

Since it’s summer and my first year of not having a clue about what’ll hit me in September, I’ve decided to try and watch a few new series over the next couple of months. My family and I recently started watching 24 from the start. Now that is a show I hate not getting to watch!


It’s exciting, tense and there’s a new twist in every episode. Jack Bower, whilst not being my type, is a fantastic character and Kiefer Sutherland is brilliant at acting him. Personally I don’t like his wife in the series, she seems to be too annoying for me to warm to. Really, if you enjoy thrillers and action packed shows, this is a must see. I didn’t think I would enjoy it, having watched Spooks for years on BBC 1 (now that I certainly couldn’t and can’t live without) I thought 24 would be too American and not my style of viewing. However, they manage to perfectly balance the different parts of the storyline without confusing anyone.

I’m about to go on holiday for a while and dreading not seeing my favourite programmes but the sun and sand of Ibiza is calling to me. Unfortunately so are the galaxy bars in my fridge. Maybe in the future they’ll find a pill that lets us eat whatever we want without getting fat? Fingers crossed!
