Crashing

Last watched November 2016 Description: An eclectic collection of people share a dilapidated building in London through a ‘property guardians’ program.

Getting On

Last watched 2015 Summary/Opinion: I tried to write a summary about this show, but it is too much like Arrested Development in that the plot doesn’t really go anywhere so it’s hard to explain without giving a detailed blow-by-blow.

Last watched July 2016 Summary: Steven is a young boy who is, I guess, half alien (or Gem, to be precise). His mother died when he was born so he could exist and he is brought up by three other Gem-people in Beach City. Opinion: Oh gosh, you are in for a treat with this one….

Faking It

Last watched February 2015 Summary: Karma and Amy are best friends. By accident they are outed as lesbians, even though they are not.
