SEPTEMBER WATCH LIST

With the last drops of sunshine and a chill in the air there's one one thing for it kids. It's time to get cosy. CHOCS AHOY! 

For me, there's nothing better than curling up after a long and busy day to the sound of rain tapping on the windows, the smell of a scented candle wafting through the room and the promise of an uninterrupted hour of TV.


There are some absolute CRACKERS on at the moment! Here's what I've been watching... 

MRS AMERICA

You'll love to hate Cate Blanchett, who is sheer perfection as anti-hero Phyllis Schlafly in this series on the feminist wars of 1970s America, when women in pearls and twinsets mobilised fellow housewives to fight against the women's liberation movement. Rose Byrne and Uzo Aduba play feminist icons Gloria Steinem and Shirley Chisholm brilliantly. A fascinating watch.

HARLOTS

This Georgian bonk buster about warring brothel-owners in London is an absolute ROMP! Starry cast (Samantha Morton, Jessica Brown Findlay and apparently a cameo from Liv Tyler to come), a dive into the rich and the poor of 18th century London and finely tuned characters to boot. A must.

THE OTHER ONE

We've instigated Comedy Wednesdays in my house which is a very jolly way to celebrate the midweek mark. I was super miffed when Young Offenders finished but not to worry, The Other One is now a firm favourite. Premise: Catherine (Cathy) discovers her dad had a secret second family after he dies and her half-sister is also called Catherine (Cat). Cathy's played by Ellie White aka Princess Beatrice in The Windsors and Cat is the excellent Lauren Socha. It's all about a clash of the classes and, like Young Offenders, offers really tender moments among the laughs.

CHERNOBYL

I sobbed uncontrollably at the end of this, which may or may not be a recommendation for you. It's devastatingly sad and bloody bleak. It's also a really important watch because while we all know what happened in 1980s USSR this show brings it right back to the fore and more. 

On Sky.
