Pouring today and weather warning - is that summer over do we think ? I blame it on Strictly. CB
We had a little burst last week and I think thats it now. Time to start the hibernation process...for me.

Not tried that one. Any good?
Weve done both series of Medici this year and finished Breaking Bad and watching Riviera.
Can you believe the next series of Vikings will be the last? Thought Id better mention it just for G to roll his eyes at us.

I didn't know that I am on Series 5 vol 1 - is there a vol2 and last series a 6? its very interesting to think its based on real characters. Gordon is almost a clansman after going through what he has gone through.
As shield maidens I vote him in.
I will try those others, apparently stranger things and lone Survivor (kiefer hit) are v good. Peaky blinders at the moment. I need to hibernate if weather worsens....CB

Yes, series 5 has a volume 2 and season 6 will also be 20 episodes, split into two volumes of ten episodes again.
Michael Hirst is planning on writing something new for Vikings fans. He’s all finished with season 6, the filming is all done and I think it could be airing late this year on History.
He says his new show won’t be a sequel but will something Vikings fans will relate to, so possibly he’s going to focus on some other characters?

I watched the first series of Stranger Things as my daughter raves about it. It was okay, very cleverly done like a retro 80’s style drama. I didn’t watch season 2 or 3 though. I’ve returned to ER! Loving it 24 years on. My 45 minute guilty pleasure to wind down.

My two eldest sons are into Peaky Blinders but I’m not sure it’s my thing. I know Vikings is full of battles and the odd blood eagle but gang violence isn’t my thing.

My hibernation has started! The hot water bottle was out last night, throws were out through much of the summer anyway, ha, but I’m doing the full window-gazing with a hot cuppa and mak8ng casseroles and snuggling up with the waggies. Love the mists, the drizzle and the earlier sunsets. Perfect time of year.

We've not had a right lot of rain here, one really wet day in recent weeks and a mix of sunny days and showers. My pair are both hibernating now

Some of mine are going into hibernation next week a bit early but they are so miserable I can't bear to see them looking so fed up.
