Yesterday, in a mammoth feat of lying on the sofa in front of the telly, Clair watched an impressive amount of rubbish. At one point the existence of “standards” on Uborka was questioned. Not that we give a monkeys about quality, but today we are going to turn it around and find out what is the best thing on TV.
In Casa Uborka we tend not to watch much broadcast television. We are bingewatchers of the highest order. Having recently finished a full rewatch of The Sopranos and enjoyed the finale of Breaking Bad very much indeed, we then turned to series 5 of Sons of Anarchy. Now, SOA started really, really well; more than once we found ourselves watching three episodes back to back. By series 3, doubts were setting in. The first two episodes of series 5 were almost unwatchable in their horror and violence, and the series has progressed at such a level of dreary misery that it now feels like watching Eastenders. So we’ve binned it, and happily picked up the new series of Borgen instead. Also in the mix at the moment we have The Good Wife, Eureka, Scott & Bailey and M*A*S*H. (You may also have spotted the theme: Strong Female Characters).
What have you been watching that is really, really good?
