We probably should be all outside enjoying some of the great British sites and countryside, but let’s face it, with our unpredictable weather, half of the time whatever we were planning to do is rained off. One thing that we can always rely on for entertainment though is of course our TVs and the wealth of programmes that they provide us. From sports to drama and pretty much everything in between there is always sure to be something on that you’ll want to watch.
And these days, what with streaming, downloading and easy watch-later option, you never have to miss a programme or an episode so it’s no wonder that we all get hooked on various TV series. Plus it gives us something to talk about come Monday morning at the office! Just make sure that you have a good TV package like Now TV to make sure you don’t miss anything this season! Get a little off by checking out deals to find out how you can get streaming content in no time at all. There are obviously loads of things happening on TV this summer, so read on to find out about some of the most anticipated.
The British and Irish Lions
The famed rugby team has already faced some controversy this year with some of head coach Warren Gatland’s choices coming under criticism but the cream of the British crop taking on the mighty All Blacks this summer as well as some of their fantastic provincial teams. The first game has already been this weekend with the Lions emerging victorious in their clash against the NZ Provincial Barbarians and there is much more promised to come with 9 more games lasting until the 8th of July. The games will largely be in the mornings due to the time difference, so if you’re a rugby fan, then grab a cup of coffee and get comfy!
Twin Peaks: The Return
One of the biggest pieces of news in the TV world this year has been the return of the hit US series Twin Peaks. This short-lived series ran for two seasons between 1990 and 1991 but was ultimately cancelled due to declining ratings. A prequel film, ‘Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me’ was released in 1992, but since then, nada! However this year saw the return of the cult series in May, and it will be running up until September. It premiered here in this country in June and there will be 18 episodes in total. If you haven’t already jumped on this bandwagon, then it is time to get watching!
This incredible tennis tournament is quintessentially British and what with superstar Scot Andy Murray and his brother as well as gifted other Brits finally giving us something to cheer for, we love this tennis tournament more than ever. As always this tournament will run for the first 2 weeks of July (starting on the 3rd this year), and will see some of the biggest names in tennis take to those hallowed grass courts. Let’s hope the rain keeps off and that it’s a glorious event once again!
