The best TV shows to watch right now

Oh hi there!

I know it’s been a while between blog posts but I’ve been really busy spending the last few months researching this very important (okay, not really but possibly very useful) blog post.

I thought the lockdown life would would inspire me to blog more, but the reality was my creativity crawled into bed, hid under the covers and couldn’t be coaxed out. I may or may not have joined it at times.

But I’m back and I thought I’d kick things off with a list of the best TV shows to watch right now (as recommended by me, and others).

Whether you’re in need of an old favourite to distract yourself from everything that’s happened so far this year, or a feel-good rom com to inspire you to dip a toe back into the dating pool, these recommendations have something for just about all of us.

I’ve split them into streaming providers so you can choose your favourite and go from there (because nothing is more annoying than spending ages trying to find the show you were recommended, only to discover you aren’t a subscriber to that network).

To further help you out, I’ve thrown one asterisk (*) on anything I’ve watched and two (**) for anything I loved.

If I’ve missed any that you absolutely love, let me know in the comments below and I’ll add them to the list.
