The time has come for another television recommendation post and this one has me in a pickle because I desperately want to avoid recommending Grey’s Anatomy. Like, sure, I could say that the first half of that show was good, but looking back, I dislike the show for all its melodrama and I don’t want anything to do with it this week. Also, I don’t really want to be stuck with the “drama” part because I have a comedic pick for this week that I have wanted to mention so many times now, and I don’t want to miss this chance!
PS: I haven’t seen enough of ER to mention it here either. It ran on TV when I was a kid so I caught a few episodes here and there but to say I watched an entire season would be lying. So.. not mentioning that one either.
First things first, here’s the comedy I’ve been meaning to mention. A comedy that was cancelled too early in my opinion, a comedy that’s based on a British series by the same name, and a comedy that I consider one of my favourites of all time. The reason is simple, it’s a great sitcom that has great characters and hilarious jokes. It also has a bit of medical stuff happening which fits this week’s theme but it’s really just a great little comedy that needs more love!
So, this was a show that I started watching from its first episode and continued on almost until the end. I watched it with my mother… and it’s not a PG-13 show either so you can imagine me being a bit shocked at first. Then again, I was shown these types of shows and stuff pretty early on, so I’m used to it by now. Nip/Tuck revolves around plastic surgery and the topics it tackles are still relevant these days. Though, I warn you, the last few seasons are way way out there and a bit weird.
Now, this was a bit of a surprise to me because I had forgotten about The Night Shift!!!! I watched the first season way back in 2014 and then well, that’s the issue with these short season shows, people tend to forget them. And so I forgot, and now thanks to this week’s theme, I rediscovered it and I will binge watch it again because I freaking loved it. Also, it’s not too shabby to look at Eoin Macken, I mean, not too shabby at all!
