The Fresh Prince of Bel Air
The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, is an american Sitcom from the 1990s, series extending from 1990 to 1996. Starring Will Smith, Alfonso Ribeiro, James Avery, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Tatyana Ali, Karyn Parsons, Joseph Marcell, Daphne Reid, Janet Hubert and Ross Bagley.
This show is focused around a streetwise, poor, young man who is originally from Philadelphia, but is sent to live with his Aunt, Uncle and Cousins, who live in Bel-Air, LA, by his mum, and he soon adapts to the lifestyle of living in a mansion and having a butler to do most of the work Will would normally do himself if he still lived with his mum.
This is a feel-good comedy show, and the show also has had some scenes of a sensitive nature, where one episode is real relating to Will and his real-life struggles with his father.
I grew up watching this show, when I was eventually old enough to start watching it, and I remember this being on a UK Sky TV Channel called “Trouble” before it eventually made its way onto Comedy Central UK, and became much easier to watch through various TV Channels.
No matter how many times I watch this show, it is always a classic show to watch, much the same as a few other shows I grew up with, but I love this show and am a big fan of Will Smith, so it makes this show even better!
The Secret: Dare To Dream 2020; Netflix
A film from the self help book; The Secret, which has been produced by Andy Tennant, and the film being written by Bekah Brunstetter, Andy Tennant, and Rick Parks. The self help book, which is where this film is an adaptation from, has been written by Rhonda Byrne.
This film, if you have read the book or heard of the book and what its about, is based upon the book about the power of positive thinking and manifestation, including the timeless messages of hope, compassion, and gratitude, The Secret: Dare to Dream is an inspiring and heartwarming film that shows how positive thoughts can transform our lives on a daily basis!.
Through positive thinking and manifestation, this film and also the book, teaches us that our reality is created by the level of vibrations and level of thoughts we have, for example; if we think negatively and are always angry and bitter, our lives will not be great because the we receive what we give out through how we think and act. If we are positive most of the time, with a positive outlook, are happy and open minded, and kind, the book and this film teaches us that we will have a positive life and get what we want by our thoughts, and how our thoughts create our reality!
I really enjoyed this film, as I have read the book, and understand a lot more with manifesting, Law of Assumption, Law of Attraction, etc, and how my life is changing since learning about this all, about gratitude’s, affirming positive thoughts to our subconscious mind, creating a better and healthier mental outlook on life, on our lives, and the way we think/feel/see ourselves. For anyone who knows of this and haven’t seen the film, but read the book, I give the film a watch, it is good!
This film stars: Katie Holmes, Josh Lucas, Celia Weston, Jerry O’Connell, and a lot of other cast members.

Friends; Random episodes; Netflix UK & Comedy Central UK
Similar to Fresh Prince of Bel Air, this show was originally aired in the 1990s, (1994-2004), where I grew up watching the show, from 2000 (as I was too young to watch the show earlier than this). This show is my absolute favourite no matter how many times I see episodes, they still make me laugh, and anyone who knows me, knows how much I love this show, I have worked “friends fest” which is a festival, running for a week, focused around photo ops from the sets of the show; Monica’s Apartment, Chandler and Joeys apartment, and Ross’ apartment too, along with original glass tight show props used from the show, along with additional benefits throughout the visit. If you are a friends fan, you will know about this. However, this show is brilliant, I love it, and I am often finding myself watching the show when I struggle to find something new to watch.
This show follows the lives of six friends with their personal and professional lives between the ages of 20 to 30+, living in Manhattan, getting up to all sorts, which relate to a lot of the audience who watch the show, like myself.
This show stars: Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Matthew Perry, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, and David Schwimmer, with guest stars through the whole 10 series, who appear in random episodes.
Love this show, and if you haven’t watched it yet, then why not? HIGHLY RECOMMEND. They really ARE there FOR YOU in any circumstance.
Superstore; Season 6 (Final Season); Peacock TV
If you saw my previous post dedicated to this show, then thank-you, and I hope you took my recommendation to watch the show.
I have recently finished the final season, which is also, sadly, the final series. Where this series follows the lives of individuals who work in a large superstore and their daily problems they seem to bring to work, which makes for a funny sitcom, one which I have not seen like this in years.
It is such a shame its finished, and this final series feels real to the world today, with COVID-19 and mask wearing, this show really made sure they remained connected to their audience on many levels, including the stresses retail workers face with COVID-19, masks, safety etc.
If you haven’t seen this show, the first five seasons are available to stream on Netflix now, and the sixth series is available to stream on Peacock TV – currently available in the US, but I am sure it won’t be long before this final series lands on Netflix to binge!
I enjoyed this show so much, I have started watching it from series one again, on Netflix, as I enjoyed it, and I am enjoying it again it seems.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND A WATCH.
And this, is what I have watched in March 2021, I am sorry it is not a longer selection of TV/Films, I just haven’t been watching a lot of TV – not as much as I would, however, this small selection has helped me slowly bounce back, and also help improve myself mentally too, alongside things I have done outside of TV/Film, such as meditation, eating healthier, and improving my mentality too!.
I hope you enjoy this small selection, and take my suggestions to watch, if you haven’t already before now, for now enjoy them if you do, and I will be back very soon with some reviews & blog entries.
Never Have I Ever; Netflix, 2020.
This show is popular on Netflix, and I have seen this series a few times since it’s release to Netflix in April 2020 and watched this again during December.
The story surrounds the complicated life of a modern-day first-generation Indian American teenage girl who is going through teenage struggles, trying to cope with the loss of her father, trying to keep her family happy with their religious beliefs, as-well-as chasing a boy from her school named Paxton, of whom she wants to have sex with.
This show is narrated by John McEnroe, which makes it even better.
A must-see TV series on Netflix, it is very funny and a great, easy watch.

The Crown; Netflix.
The Crown started in 2016 on Netflix, based on History of the Royal Family which follows the romance and political rivalries of Queen Elizabeth 2nd’s reign as the current Queen of England and events which shaped the second half of the 20th century, including presidency of Winston Churchill, the marriage of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip, and the most recent series (series 4) with Princess Diana, and the events surrounding the marriage.
I am yet to watch the latest series, I have just started watching this show from season one, and currently, when writing this, on Episode 9 of season one.
Created by: Peter Morgan.
Saturday Night Live, Online.
This is a comedy sketch show shown every Saturday Night Live in New York, and has been long running since 1975.
I have recently discovered this sketch show through a friend, and by watching random clips online on YouTube. The show, every week, has a new celebrity host for the show who get involved in the parodies and sketches.
If you have not watched this, I highly recommend watching clips on YouTube, as they are funny and will make you laugh out loud. My favourite bit of the show is always the “weekend update” hosted, currently, by Colin Jost and Michael Che.
The creator of this show is: Lorne Michaels.
The latest series, which is also the one I have watched full, is series 46, with celebrity hosts of Chris Rock, Bill Burr, Issy Rae, Adele, John Mulaney, Dave Chappelle, Jason Bateman, Timothee Chalamet, and the last week before Christmas had the host of Kristen Wiig .
BACK TO THE FUTURE TRILOGY BOXSET; SKY TV
Directed by: Robert Zemeckis
Written by: Robert Zemeckis & Bob Gale
Starring: Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, Crispin Glover, Thomas F. Wilson, Claudia Wells.
These films are my favourite to watch, and despite owning the films on DVD, as I had been given a limited edition steel-book 4k DVD set for Christmas, I still enjoy watching these films when they are shown on TV.
For those who do not know about these films, and if you don’t I honestly have no idea how you wouldn’t as they are classic Sci-Fi films, the story is about a 17-year-old named Marty McFly who is friends with a Scientist named Doc Brown who has created time travel.
The first film; Back to The Future, is about Marty ending up in 1955 and meets his parents from when they were his age, and he helps his father become more confident and helps to keep his and his brothers existence in 1985.
The second film; Back To The Future part 2, is where Doc Brown takes both Marty and his girlfriend Jennifer to the future to 2015, where Marty is warned about his kids in the future and something needs to be done about them.
The third and final film; Back To The Future part 3, is where Marty heads back through the ages, back to the Old West era to rescue Doc Brown.
I love watching these films, and I also celebrated the day Marty and Doc Brown visited us in 2015, I spent the day watching the film and celebrating online with many other BTTF Fans.
The rest of my December surrounded a lot of Christmas shows/films. I have watched a few Christmas films during this month, so please refer to my post of “My Favourite Films To Watch” at Christmas Time” within the blog section of my page to find what I have been watching over December, in addition to these shows featured in this blog post.
I hope everyone had a great Christmas holiday, and have a fantastic New Year night. Remember – Stay Safe, especially at this unprecedented time in the world! See you all in 2021.
