Looking Back on 2019 – Some Of My Favourite Media

It’s the fourth of my looking back posts and today I’m looking at some of my favourite TV, movies and music of 2019!

TV

Silent Witness – I’m not sure it was the best ever series of Silent Witness but I do enjoy anytime Nikki and Jack are on my screen

Vera – I have five of the books this series is based on sitting on my shelf to read but I’ve just not got there yet. I do love the adaptation though and Brenda Blethlyn is just wonderful as Vera

Lucifer – I’m so pleased this was revived by Netflix (if only for a short time) I really enjoyed this season, if I could get some more of Tom Ellis singing in the final season I will be a happy girl!

His Dark Materials – I must confess with all the madness of December I’ve not completely finished the first series but what I’ve seen so far I’ve absolutely loved.

Movies

So I’m not the biggest movie watcher and despite listing far more than this in my looking forward to post I only actually got around to seeing two films in the cinema.

The Lion King – The original animated movie is probably my favourite Disney movie of all to so I was both keen and a little nervous to see what this ‘live action’ remake would be like. Other than destroying the song Be Prepared (the best Disney song) I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it

Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker – No spoilers I promise! This ending to the Skywalker Saga has really divided fans and I’m somewhere in the middle. There are some fantastic visuals, I loved many of the call backs to past films but there are definitely things I would have done differently. I’m glad I saw it on the big screen though.

Music

DJ Spoony – Garage Classical. I feel like I’m showing my age here but this album took a lot of songs I absolutely loved back in the day but had forgotten about and re-imagined them. There’s a wonderful array of guest vocalists covering the tracks on this album and I just love it!

Bastille – Doom Days. I adored Bastille’s first album and it was often on repeat as I walked to work, I sort of skipped over the second album although I own it but when this one was released it was like I’d gone back in time and it was firmly on repeat on my way to work once again!

Bishop Briggs – Church Of Scars. Towards the end of the year Bishop Briggs released her second album CHAMPION but I’ve not really listened to that yet because I was very late to the party for her first album and only picked that up halfway through 2019 and it’s another that’s on repeat for me.

Lewis Capaldi – Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent. 2019 has been a huge year for Lewis Capaldi, I already loved his singles and owned his EPs but this full album has been a delight. I also love the videos he shared on social media, he’s hilarious. I’m intrigued to see how he follows this one up!
