Really Soothing Things to Watch

The black dog has been sniffing under my door lately, so I’ve been seeking out soothing things to watch. Here are my choices. What are yours?

Cosmos: Carl Sagan’s musings on the wonder of everything is perfect when things are a little bleak.

The Life of Mammals: I make no secret of my love for David Attenborough, and The Life of Mammals is one of my favorites of his productions. Like Sagan, there’s something that helps me feel better when I’m listening to someone talking about how amazing the world is.

Stephen Fry in America: I mean, Stephen Fry is amazing anytime. This series is of the great man wandering around the U.S. driving a London Taxi Cab. It’s lovely. Just lovely.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: We make no secret of our love for Buffy on this here blog, but I have a deep love for everyone’s favorite slayer when I need a little pick-me-up. There’s something about watching someone who can save the world all while looking good in a pair of cute, yet comfortable boots that makes it all better. If you’re looking for some awesome retro recaps, check out Slay Belle’s amazing posts.

Shiba Inu Puppy Cam: Oh yes, it’s back, folks. Those little adorable pups are much more powerful than the black dog.

My food groups are cheese, bacon, and hot tea. I like studying cities and playing with my cat, Buffy.

I’d also make a bid for Frozen Planet and my personal favourite, A Midsummer Night’s Dream: naked Christian Bale! Bicycles! Tuscany! Kevin Kline with donkey ears.

On TV, you cannot pry me away from Time Team (I <3 you Phil. Never change) and I also quite like Grand Designs.
