Jonny's Recent Decent TV
So, it’s 3:30 am and my mind is buzzing; it appears I have insomnia again.
I’m being dramatic, I don’t have insomnia, just awful sleep patterns. I find blogging helps, or so I tell myself. It actually furthers the problem and means I probably won’t get to sleep till at least 5am. I currently have little to wake up for though so its no biggie. I am unemployed and usually spend my days pottering around the house, keeping the fire stocked up, the odd bit of cooking and watching TV. Lots of TV. Not live daytime TV. No, high quality catch up programmes on iPlayer and 4OD. So I thought I’d share some of my current recent decent TV programmes.
1. Top Boy
4. Coach Trip
My favourite this week has been Top Boy. Currently on 4OD, Top Boy tells the story of an inner city gang and it’s effects on the community around it. Set on a rough estate in East London, it’s gritty, authentic, excellently acted and has a great script. Ashley Walters (aka Asher D of So Solid Crew fame) puts in a decent lead performance as Dushane, a drug dealing gangster stuck in a life of crime. Oh and did I mention its beautifully filmed? The cinematography is stunning.
