Your Recommendations


Below is a list of TV shows, movies and other titles that people have recommended for me to check out, which I haven’t already mentioned in my other entertainment posts. If you’ve suggested a title and it isn’t on any of my lists, then that’s because I wasn’t interested in it.

I’ll never get through the entire list, as it’s huge and I only have so much time and money, plus there are other things I want to watch too. But this gives me a lot of things to look at when I have time to do so. I won’t like everything, but hopefully I’ll enjoy some of it.

Thank you to Claire Amoroso, Fashioneyesta, The Irish Nerd, Jack Fenwick, Matthew Lamont & Vincent Grasso, plus many others I follow online and friends I know offline, for their contributions to this list. If you have any new suggestions or want to comment on existing entries, feel free to comment below or contact me, so I can add to the list and credit you above.
