There's nothing quite like getting your teeth into a decent TV show, especially this time of year. One of my favourite things to do when the weather's cold is make myself a huge mug of tea, snuggle down with my hot water bottle and sit and watch back to back episodes of my favourite programmes. Here are a few I just love to binge on:
Father Ted. I sometimes feel like this show was written for me - I only have to hear one quote and I'm in stitches. It centres round three priests who live together on an island and all the ridiculous situations they get themselves into. It's slightly dated now as the first episode aired during the mid 90's but it's still brilliant.
The IT Crowd. This is like a more modern version of Father Ted - it was written by Graham Linehan so the humour is very similar. When I first discovered it I watched the entire show in about a week. The episode where they play Street Countdown always has me crying with laughter. Anybody else have a slight crush on Richard Ayoade?
I won't go into too much detail about the plot as I'm sure everyone and their dog has watched this by now, but it's about a dying chemist and a young drug dealer who team up to cook meth. I was addicted to this despite the fact the story line wouldn't usually be my cup of tea. The writing is so clever and the acting is amazing. It's a little slow in places but for the most part it's a show you can't help but become obsessed with.
The Vicar of Dibley. The Vicar of Dibley has been one of my favourite shows since before I can remember - it instantly makes me feel cosy, especially at Christmas. The show centres around Geraldine Granger (Dawn French), who arrives in Dibley as the village's new vicar. In the beginning her parishioners are very much against a woman being head of the church but they soon grow to adore her. The relationships portrayed in this show are what make it so special and I love each and every character equally.
