4 shows that I watch to relax from writing

Writers need to have time out to rest from the creative process. I have four shows that I thoroughly enjoy watching to zone out from working.

Many of them I believe you would like to watch them too.

So, what you will find below are not my four favourite shows ; rather, they are the ones that make me forget about everything

Anyway… here they are.

 

Castle: 5 USA  on Wednesday nights at 9pm

Castle is an American crime-comedy-drama television series. It primarily traces the lives of Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion), a best-selling mystery novelist, and Kate Beckett (Stana Katic), an NYPD homicide detective, as they solve various unusual crimes in New York City. This programme is filled with humour and it’s a typical crime show which I can’t get enough of.

Why you Should Watch this series: Anyone who likes crime shows like NCIS should watch this. As it’s different to it but the plots are interesting.

Death in Paradise: BBC Thursdays at 9pm

This tv series is quite funny and gets your brain spinning with the well thought out plots. It’s about a British detective Richard Poole (Ben Miller) who is assigned to investigate a murder on the fictional paradise island of Saint Marie in the Caribbean.

After he successfully finds the murderer, he is reluctantly required by his supervisors to stay on as the detective inspector of the island, solving new cases, and being the object of many fish-out-of-water jokes. At the start of Series 3, Poole is killed and London detective Humphrey Goodman (Kris Marshall) arrives to investigate the death of his strait-laced predecessor. He then stays in the job as chief investigator on the island.

Why you should watch [this series]: It’s entertaining and well thought out. The show is now on Season 6 which isn’t a surprise at all due to viewing figures and quality of the episodes.

Suits  Netflix

My pals have gone on about this show for a long time and since I got Netflix for Christmas  that’s meant I have been able to watch it. I’m on Season 3 now and it’s certainly living up to the massive hypesurrounding the show which is popular across the globe. I’m quite far behind with series 7 coming out this year, so no spoilers please.

The focus of the show is to follow the talented college dropout Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) who initially works as a law associate for Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) despite never going to law school.  The main mission is for Harvey and Mike to close cases, while still keeping Mike’s secret.

Why you should watch [this series]  You should watch this show because Suits is funny, occasionally moving, smartly drawn out and cast, and it looks brilliant. If you long for TV to help you escape from stressful work, this is your fantasy made real.

Brooklyn Nine Nine: E4

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is an American police sitcom that follows a team of detectives and a newly appointed captain in the 99th Precinct of the New York City Police Department in Brooklyn.

It’s not your typical police sitcom as it’s a comedy and you always get a great laugh in every episode. This is a  perfect show to sit down on the couch to watch if you’re  feeling down.

Why you should watch [this series]  You should watch this show because it’s led by the  effective pairing of Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is a charming, intelligently written take on the cop show format.

I’m a 18 year old now! Boom time flies.

I’m 18 now! I loved every minute I spent up in Macduff celebrating my birthday with my amazing family and friends during my week on holiday from college. Someone said to me: “You look very happy in your Facebook profile picture.” That’s an understatement by a country mile. I couldn’t stop smiling.

Being home was sweet! I saw people who I was used to seeing every week before moving to Glasgow which was brilliant. I miss everyone but I will see you all at Christmas as I return home once again. Many things have changed up north with Macduff Parish Church getting a new minister and my classmates are at university studying in Aberdeen and Edinburgh as well as some at college locally. Others are still at Banff Academy.

Recently I got my interview with YouTuber Jodi and Steven Vlogs about their visit to Glasgow published in the Student Record which is an amazing achievement for me and I appreciate everyone who read it. My writing has improved a great deal since I started in 2013.

On my birthday while sipping a nice cold bottle of Beck’s at night I look at the collection of pictures from past and present given to me in a frame as a gift from my sister Lauren. This triggers me to remember many magical moments in my life so far from visiting America for the first time to water gun fights across the road from my home when I was little. I have had loads of family holidays across Scotland and the world which is staggering since I’m only 18.

I am excited for what is going to happen in the next 18 years in my life and ready to face all the challenges blocking my path.

I have received positive feedback about this blog with many enjoying it. So weekly I will write a blog post and continue to document my life as a student journalist.
