Many of you may not be familiar with this gem of a show which is a travesty in my opinion. It first aired on E4 in 2008, with its fifth and final season airing in 2013. I wasn't able to watch this when it was first shown on TV but heard all about it from my friends so when I saw that it was available on Netflix, I jumped on it and am now on season four (I started it last week oops!). It follows the exploits of five young offenders on community service who during a freak lightening storm get given special powers that change their lives. It is hilariously funny and completely wacky which is why I love it. My favourite character by far is Nathan played by the one and only Robert Sheehan (an Irish lad of course). He is the funniest character and the show just wasn't the same when he left at the end of season two. The whole show sort of went downhill after that particularly after season three when the rest of the original cast was replaced. It is most definitely still worth a watch though!
This is the only show on this list that isn't available to watch on Netflix unfortunately although I'm sure it is available elsewhere on the Internet, I watched it as it aired on TV. As you can probably guess this show documents the lives of the Vikings during their raids in England however they are far from the monsters that history depicts them as. They are much more human and have families to worry about. It's a great show that is really historically accurate. It is currently on it's second season with the third season airing next year. What I really love about this show is that all of the beautiful scenery you see is entirely shot in Ireland which is really great. I really hope you check this one out!
4.The Office US
I binge watched all nine seasons of this during the summer and I don't regret a minute of it. I think that it is an absolutely genius show that everyone should watch. All of the characters and their stories are brilliant. My favourite was definitely Dwight who was just so weird and also wonderful. I'm really sad that this is over, I miss it so much, I might start watching it again!
5.Parks and Recreation
I only recently started watching this but I'm already loving it. I had seen the gifs of this show all over Tumblr which I really liked so I decided to give it a go. I haven't been racing through it like I have done previously with other shows which is better I think, I have to chance to savour it!
What shows have you been watching this year and do you have any suggestions?
