Five TV programmes I Can’t Wait To Watch in 2017
I missed last weeks Five Fandom Friday prompts, but I really wanted to talk about the TV programmes I can’t wait to watch this year, so I am posting this a week late. The Nerdy Girlie has posted prompts for February 2017, so you to can join in.
- Twin Peaks
One of my favourite show when I was at school was Twin Peaks – along with The X-Files. I am unsure if my teenage self and friends fully understood the programme or story-lines. But we all loved watching them and spend hours talking about them. I even began drinking coffee because of Agent Cooper, but could never understand his obsession with cherry pie. Years later I re-watched Twin Peaks and still loved it, I became more obsessed with the show, reading Laura Palmer Secret Diary, listening to Dale’s tapes. Obviously, I can’t wait to see what direction this show takes.
- The Defenders
As a fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, I was extremely interested when they announced the Netflix collaboration to bring street level heroes together as a group. Since, then I have adored the first season of Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. I might not have enjoyed the second season of Daredevil as much, but I did love The Punisher. So the idea of seeing these heroes (and Iron Fist) working together sounds amazing.
- Game of Thrones
I know this season will be the next to the last season, I know it is a shorter season, and that we have to wait longer for this season to start. That hasn’t stopped me desperately waiting to find out who will win the “Game of Thrones”.
- Stranger Things
Without a doubt the surprise hit show of 2016 was Stranger Things. We binge-watched the first season in a weekend and they re-watched it several month later – just to see if missed anything the first time around.
- The Walking Dead
I will be honest, I wasn’t too impressed with the first half of season seven of The Walking Dead. The killing off of one of the favourite characters. Other characters changing their personality and the general direction of heroes story-lines all seemed frayed. However the last episode of the mid-season seemed to set them all back on the right path and return the show back to the programme I love.
