Books or screens: The choice is yours


tv books

Wait! It’s books and/or screens – I’ve clearly made my choice for all of them.

Recently my friend Lorraine has taken to blogging about movies and significantly the plethora of TV shows that are worth watching. She is a crime fiction fan as well, and while her comments are not limited to the genre you will find plenty to delve into.

Regardless of the type of screen you watch, from the movie theater to your mobile phone you will find plenty of information and opinions on her blog. Like me she loves good television from around the world so you will see many countries represented. Have a look and let me know what you think

I couldn’t have said it better myself….

Do you confess to your family and friends that you enjoy watching TV? What is your ratio of reading to screen watching? Are you front row, or centre-row middle at the movies?

  1. I’m thinking of two TV series that have strong female characters. I know there are more, but these were ones that came to mind, these are the more offbeat ones, China Beach, Crossing Jordan, Cagney and Lacey and Judging Amy. I know there are more.

  2. I loved Broadchurch. Why is it that the US have to remake everything. What’s wrong with watching the original?

    After a day of slaving over the keyboard, I like nothing more than to vege out in front of the TV… especially if there’s a good crime series on. I’m currently watching The Code and Mad Dogs, both of which I have no hesitation in recommending. 🙂

  3. Hi Donna, I know it can be hard to watch a series where the female characters are so badly portrayed. By that I mean as a one dimensional add-on.

    Broadchurch was excellent, did you know they have released a US remake? Apparently it will have a different ending. Why bother with a remake of such a good series. I could understand years from now with a fresh spin.

    Thanks for dropping by, always good to hear from you.

  4. In the last few months I have been watching box sets of older series or reading. I just find that a lot of the female characters are written badly and follow the usual stereotype,so I switch off. Broadchurch was very good though!
