The Killing

The television series, but not the cool Danish one, the American one. It’s been burning a hole in my sky + for some time, and now we finally finished watching it. It may seem little point doing a review now, but you may be like me and often catch up on series 1 when series 2 is due out; which is soon…

Well if that’s the case; don’t bother! I looked at Chris at the end of the last episode and he looked at me and just burst out laughing. It was a case of you had to laugh or you’d be angry about it for ages. I’m still angry!

It’s a standard detective drama with the death of a girl reported at the beginning of the first episode. Throughout the series you get to know her family, some teachers at her school, the detective herself and quite a lot about the local political parties vying for the next election. All of it was utterly boring. None of the characters were likeable; even the detective, who, every other episode nearly leaves to meet her fiance, but never does. It’s filmed in such a way that I think is meant to be gritty and cool, but ended up just being grey and dismal, and the characters mumble all the time so you have to have the volume up high to hear what they’re saying. I’ve never known a series to be drawn out as long as this one. And then…(Spoiler alert; but not really…) at the end…

You still don’t find out who f*****g did it! Hours and hours of my life invested into finding out who killed the girl. 13 episodes, all an hour long, and with double length episodes at the beginning and end! I will not be bothering with series 2.

What it’s like to be an Introvert
October 20, 2016
Move over anxiety; being an introvert is the new fashionable difficulty! I am of course, being slightly tongue-in-cheek, but I when I recently started getting into You Tube, I couldn’t believe how many people are giving their videos titles such as, ‘Coping with anxiety,’ and ‘My depression story.’ I couldn’t help but be a little cynical. Could this many people really be dealing with mental health issues, or has it just become a little fashionable? Then I considered two things…..
Slissie review
A chance to curb your cravings? A review of the Slissie
June 5, 2017
This is a new product, so I’ll begin by telling you what on earth a Slissie is! To be honest, it’s a bit difficult to explain, but it’s a weight-loss device that looks a little bit like a vape, and you suck on it like it is a vape, however there’s no actual vapour! Instead, it releases a burst of flavour into your mouth, and the idea is that it will trick your brain into thinking you’ve eaten something sweet, and therefore your cravings will be satisfied without actually having the calories of eating anything…..
Review of Witness for the Prosecution at County Hall, London
A review of Agatha Christie’s play, Witness for the Prosecution, at County Hall, London
April 28, 2018
It was my birthday last week. And it was a big one. The kind with a zero. The weekend afterwards I celebrated with my family (which was lovely – look out for the vlog coming soon!) and I’m in the process of organising a day my friends are free at the same time to celebrate with them (I am determined to milk this for as long as possible!), but for my actual birthday day, I wanted to do something special. All the time the kids were young, I hardly bothered celebrating my birthday, but although we have had a couple of days out in more recent years, this time I really wanted to make it count. So, I went online to see what theatre productions are on in London at the moment. I’ll be honest, I wavered and nearly didn’t bother with the whole idea because my god, it’s expensive isn’t it? And why can’t they tell you the price of tickets until after you’ve given half your personal details, chosen the date and studied the seating plan?! We were also limited by the type of thing we’d all be interested in. Something we’d all love is of course The Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, but at £1160 for the four of us to see both parts that day, we decided our Harry Potter fan-ship can be shown with Primark mugs and slippers (that wear through in 3 weeks) instead! However, something else we all enjoy watching on the telly together is Agatha Christie adaptations, and when I found out that Witness for the Prosecution was being played in an actual courtroom, that tipped the balance over Mousetrap (which I’m pretty hopeful will still be on for my 50th birthday!) and I booked the tickets….
