What We’ve Been Watching is a monthly feature where we talk about everything we’ve been watching over the past month. It might be something on Netflix, Sky or even just a DVD we’ve had for years but wanted to watch again. If we’ve been watching something new we’ll talk about that too!
Stranger Things 2
Stranger Things was one of my absolute favourite shows last year and I have been on countdown to Stranger Things 2 since it ended. This is something John and I were able to watch together as there were only 9 episodes so we watched over a couple of days.
I loved Stranger Things 2. I wasn’t disappointed with any aspect of it and the whole series was mega exciting. I cried, I laughed and I hid behind my hands more than a few times and I also shouted at the TV quite a lot.
Earlier this year I got a bit addicted to the adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale. Don’t expect this to be anything like The Handmaid’s Tale though but it is pretty great. Alias Grace is a 6 part series so doesn’t take too long to get through but it is so worth watching.
If you haven’t heard of this yet, here’s what it is about!
Alias Grace is based on the 1843 murders of Thomas Kinnear and his housekeeper Nancy Montgomery in Canada. Two servants of the Kinnear household, Grace Marks and James McDermott, were convicted of the crime. McDermott was hanged and Marks was sentenced to life imprisonment.
Twirlywoos is one of Erin’s newest favourites. I love that the episodes are only 10 minutes long as we can get one or two in between doing other things. Erin really loves the theme song and tries to sing along with me when we watch it. To be completely honest, I’m just happy we’re finally not stuck watching Paw Patrol all of the time. It’s nice to have a bit of a change, both for Erin and me!
We have had a couple of family visits this month so some evenings we haven’t watched anything at all or we have put something on that we haven’t really had to pay attention to. I can imagine next month will be filled with Christmas shows and films!
Have you watched anything amazing this month? I’m always looking for recommendations so please let me know in the comments!

I loved the first season of Stranger Things but I think I’m the only person who hasn’t got around to season 2 yet! I didn’t know they were making an adaption of Alias Grace – I read the book ages ago, so I’d like to catch that one.
It’s not long been on Netflix so you’ve got loads of time
I haven’t heard of Alias Grace but loved Handmaids Tale, it sounds really good and Ilike that it is a 6 parter because I tend to get lost in series and don’t surface for weeks hahaha I still haven’t watched stranger things but its all I am hearing about, I seriously need to catch up. Lately I have been indulging in Once Upon a Time but it is ont he seventh series and I am on the first lol see you in 2 years people
Alias Grace was great. Well worth watching.
I am hooked at stranger things ! Such a great series ❤️
It’s been one of my favourites in a long time
I am so out of touch. The only thing I’ve heard of here is Twirlywoos lol. We have Netflix though so I shall look these up, thanks
I absolutely loved stranger things 2, it held up all my expectations and I binged it in a couple of days x
We devoured Stranger Things 2. It’s such a good show. As a family we’ve been watching lots of Disney films in preparation for our trip. And BattleDad and I have just finished the latest series of both The Last Ship and Ray Donovan x
We’ve been watching Strangers Things 2 too. We’re two thirds of the way through.
I loved Stranger Things 2. I have an unhealthy crush on Chief Hopper!
