January Wrap Up – TV Shows

 

The Reagans [ season 1 ] – We kick-started the year off with this four part series about the Reagan presidency. I didn’t know much about Reagan going into this so it was an informative watch for me. I now understand why so many people think the Reagan administration was the beginning of the downfall of the USA. This was a good watch for anyone interested in a quick and informative political doco series.

Schitt’s Creek [ season 6 ] – What a bittersweet thing to finally finish this perfect show. It has been quiet a while since I have been so charmed by a television series and it’s cast of characters, but this show is now nestled firmly in my heart as one of my all-time favourites. I am sad that it’s finally finished but so happy that I got to experience it.

The Ripper [ season 1 ] – A friend at work recommended this true crime series to me, and it was one of those shows where you sit down to watch and you end up finishing the entire thing in one day. This was a great little series, informative, suspenseful, and it didn’t drag on for too long. If you’d like to learn all about the Yorkshire Ripper, check this out.

The Night Stalker [ season 1 ] – First things first, please do not watch this if you are planning on spending any time home alone at night. This is one of the creepiest true crime documentary series I’ve watched so far, and it will stay with me for a very long time. My only exposure to Richard Ramirez prior to this was American Horror Story, and having seen this I feel like it was pretty disrespectful for them to include him in the story they way that they did. He was a monster, pure evil.

The West Wing [ season 1 ] – We have commenced another watch of The West Wing, which is one of my all-time favourite shows. Watching this feels like coming home. It can be pretty cheesy at times, but the characters will stay with you forever. Season one is a great introduction to the show, with a cliffhanger at the end of the last episode that made us jump straight in to season two.
