Let’s do this thing, shall we?
My least favorite piece of writing advice ever (other than “don’t quit your day job,” because really, quitting day jobs has always been one of my top skills) has always been “write what you know.” Because you know what? I know nothing.
And then one day for funsies I started making a list of all the British TV shows I’ve watched (and re-watched, obsessively) ever since I caught my first glimpse of Ballykissangel back in the intoxicating late-1990s. And you know what? It was a really LONG list.
This explains a lot about why I’ve put together very little career and even fewer other achievements over the intervening decade and a half. So yeah: I’m wasting my life. But the upside? The upside is that I want this to be your official place to learn about British television series, miniseries, literary adaptations, talk shows, soaps, reality programs, and documentaries. In short: if it’s been on British TV, I want to talk about it with you.
