I_Watched: An insight into what the WriteUpp Squad are watching on the telly!

When we’re not busy with all things WriteUpp, we love nothing more than kicking back and catching up on some telly! So what are we watching this month, I hear you cry!

What is Bob watching?

Our CEO, Bob is a man of many tastes! This month he has been watching:

  • The Staircase (Netflix) “A Rollercoaster ride that one” he tells us, The Staircase is a Docu-series following Mike Peterson, who was accused of killing his wife in 2001. Whether you believe him or not, the journey is quite incredible! (A very respectable 8.0/10 on IMDB)
  • Escape at Dannemora (Sky Atlantic) – “An employee at a prison in upstate New York becomes romantically involved with a pair of inmates and helps them escape.” “Benicio del Torra is super cool” Bob says! Well if that doesn’t sell it, nothing will! (8.1/10 on IMDB)

What is Rich (aka The Diceman) watching?

When you can get him pulled away from all things development and bread making, Dice has recommended:

  • Trigger warning with Killer Mike (Netflix) – “Conducting a different social experiment in each episode – including spending money in the black community for three days – Killer Mike puts forward powerful, controversial ideas to help reshape perception in America” – “Trigger Warning with Killer Mike. On Netflix. OH MY GOODNESS!” says Dice! Quite the recommendation!  (6.5/10 on IMDB but don’t let that put you off!)
  • Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes (Netflix) – “An in-depth look at the life of crimes of serial killer, Ted Bundy” Perhaps a little dark for some but Dice says “it’s well recommended. I can’t wait to see the Zac Effron movie now. You can recognise a lot from the trailer.” and Bob tells us he has only watched the first episode but is “hooked” (8.1/10 on IMDB)

 What is Jenni watching?

When Jen can tear her head out of a book she enjoys lots of great shows like, Grey’s Anatomy and NCIS. Her most recent viewing has been:

  • Killing Eve (iPlayer) – A really popular one with the whole team, Killing Eve follows the life of a security operative and an assassin. With the fabulous Sandra Oh (Grey’s Anatomy fans will know her as Christina) this one is definitely worth a watch! (8.3/10 on IMDB)
  • She is eagerly awaiting the new season of Game of Thrones!

What is Emma watching?

When I’m not rewatching Grey’s Anatomy for the eleventy billionth time, I have recently been watching:

  • Crazy Ex – Girlfriend (Netflix) – “A young women abandons a choice job at a law firm and her life in New York in an attempt to find happiness.” Really not my usual “cup of tea” but it’s one of those ones that you can’t tear yourself from! Very easy watching and a bit silly! (7.7/10 on IMDB, which is probably generous, if I’m honest!)
  • Making a Murderer (Netflix) – “Filmed over a 10 year period, Steven Avery, a DNA exoneree who, while in the midst of exposing corruption in local law enforcement, finds himself the prime suspect in a grisly new crime” I’m really late to the party with this one but, goodness me, what a show! I’m nearing the end and it’s taking all my power not to Google how it all ends up! Well worth a watch! #justiceforsteven! (8.7/10 on IMDB)

What is Jonas watching?

Football. Nothing else but football!
