Fabulous list, what great shows! I've recorded 'The Hunted' as I saw a trailer for it on TV the other night and thought, "Oh, I'd pay good money to take part in a show like that.' It looks so exciting. like a thriller novel. Can't wait to see it and am glad of your recommendation. Thanks @Lucy! *waves hi* : )

Thanks, @scotwot! I will hopefully be adding more shows to the list as I get through them. At the moment I'm completely captivated by The Leftovers, and I feel like that show will be on here once I get through seasons 2 and 3!

Ooh Hunted is a great show, you've nailed it by comparing it to a thriller novel as it's got a very similar feel. It's really well edited and put together and you root for the individuals on the run with such passion as they try and evade the hunters! The music also ramps up the tension spectacularly - it's really heart pounding watching and well worth a binge!

Hi Lucy! I've still to watch the last three eps of The Leftovers and totally agree, it was such an unusual and quirky show that always kept us, at least me, guessing. : ) Seasons 2 and 3 are so good, even better than the first season, and that's saying a lot considering how completely off-the-wall the premise of the show was. Enjoy watching S2 and S3!

Really? It is like a thriller, ooh, now I really need to binge watch! It sounds so good! I don't think I could take waiting a week for the next episode to air...the cliffhangers! It just sounds exactly like the kind of show I want to watch, right.now! Season 1, I'm on the hunt for you! I'm sorry, I just had to pun... :D

I had just written a comment to agree with your review of The Blue Planet and when I clicked 'Add Comment' I got a '404 server not responding.' Heartbreak - I don't have it in me tonight to write it, again. Serves me right for not copying it before I hit the button. Anyway, it was just to say I loved the show, you summed it up perfectly and everything Sir David Attenborough has ever done is amazing. *hits ctrl-A, ctrl C then hits 'Add Comment.' lol

Ooh I am pleased to hear that the Leftovers gets even better! I'll make sure to clear out a space this weekend to try and make a decent headway into season 2!

Hunted is primarily more of a reality based show than a thriller, but everything from the hunters to the people on the run is done so seriously that you forget it's being filmed and feel like you've been catapulted into a thriller novel! I hope your 'hunt' for the show is successful (I do love a good pun!)

Agree with you there, Sir David Attenborough makes Blue Planet, and every other show he's been part of, come to life. Blue Planet II airs in the UK at the end of the month so I'm very hyped to hear more of Attenborough's narration and learn more about life under the sea!

The Leftovers can be difficult to watch at times but it's weirdly compelling and I just binge watched the entire season 2 and am just waiting for my hubby to catch up with me so we can watch the finale, together. I have absolutely no idea how this show will end. It's a complete mystery and I love that. I really hope you enjoy S2, I found some aspects of S2 a bit slow but most of it was great. S3, they just hit the ground running and (with 3 episodes left to watch) haven't stopped yet. It's so good.

I do love the idea of having to go completely off grid, with only the money in your wallet, not able to use your ATM card, car, 'phone a friend' - it's like all the thrillers I read as a teen and in my twenties. It must be so interesting when there's so much money at stake and it's real people involved. Glad you like puns! They're so much fun! lolol

I didn't know that The Blue Planet II will air soon! Wowza! Aargh, I'm so enjoying out chat and now the puppy is crying to get out. I'll try and get back! She's too cute to complain about, though. Supercute! Except when I'm chatting. Drat!

Speak soon?

: )

Awesome! I look forward to hearing your thoughts about The Leftovers when you're all caught up and finished :D

Ooh yes I'd go search for the trailer for Blue Planet II as it's a good long one that's really got me in the mood for the new season, can't wait! The musical score for the series came out the other day and I swear it's better than the first season, really dramatic and powerful stuff!

Hope puppy is okay! And yes we shall indeed speak soon, it's always good to have a chat about all the best tv with yourself :D
