I'm hooked on Humans, on BBC one Sundays at 9.30. My kind of show. Even if you don't like science fiction, there's enough drama to keep you watching.

We've been binge watching House on Netflix to the extent that I'm having very strange dreams about Hugh Laurie! It's a great series though, nice mix of medical intrigue and humour.

We've just finished vikings.
Main character annoyed me with his constant smirking but generally enjoyable.

Slightly horrified by my huge number of posts.

Isn't it on Channel 4?? Watched the first episode and yes, it's good! But I foresee me just wanting to get to the point of it before long!!!

At least there is a new series of ANTM to keep me slightly entertained.

And the GBBO can't be far away??

We just bought a FireStick (sorry mp) and I've been nurturing an addiction to Misfits on 4OD. Binge-watching when Izbiz is at nursery and Bee is sleeping on me - the perfect excuse to stay on the sofa and indulge myself!

What's a fire stick and why wouldn't I like it? Or another mp?

It's an A****n device. Lets you watch Prime Instant Video on your TV, as well as Netflix and all the various terrestrial catch-up services.

So do I (though not I'm a celeb - because they usually aren't!!!!) I love it when X factor starts and I can begin to think about Christmas!!!

Then there is Strictly, The Apprentice, the football season starts ........... Oh, and Downton. Although it will be hard to watch this year, knowing its the end!

No fixed date for GBBO. "Sometime in August" say's Lord Hollywood of all gorgeousness!!!!

Loved it. I tend to watch any Scandi series that isn't about murder (war is obviously OK!) and loved 1864, I think having the double episodes made it even more intense, it filled my head for days afterwards. I also loved Borgen so when watching 1864 I got very excited as soon as I heard Sidse Babett Knudsen's voice in her first scene, how sad am I? Saboteurs on Saturdays at 9pm on Channel 4 looks very good as well, it's about the second world war and is in Norwegian, English and German. Find it incredible that these multilanguage programmes even get commissioned, in the UK it would be bad German accents all the way.

Another less well known Scandi drama (from Sweden) was 'Don't ever wipe tears without gloves' which was about the AIDS in Sweden in the 1980s, really fantastic but so sad as well. We've come a long way thankfully.

Anyone watch Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell? I loved the book when I read it a few years ago and thought the adaption was brilliant. Think I might have to re-read it now!

Anyone else enjoying True Detective (series 2)? Vince Vaughn can act, who knew?

We're also still loving Sons of Anarchy, for which I have two words: 'Charlie' and 'Hunnam'. Yum-MY.

I'm loving orange is the new black. Id say we are loving it but mrC is more tolerating it for now. And we're watching last week tonight a lot too. That's our viewing for now.
