Fun Mum Dinner

‘Fun Mum Dinner’

“When four moms come together for a “fun mom dinner”, the night takes an unexpected turn.”

Four women going wild on a night out – why would you not want to watch this movie. Full of humour, fun and great actors. It’s great to see Toni Colette from ‘Muriel’s Wedding‘ in another fab movie!

Watch now on Amazon Instant Video.

THE SONGS

The theme tune to this movie i.e. the song played in the trailer is ‘All Work‘ by Fever High.

Since the movie revolves around a usually sensible group of women who just let their hair down for the night and go wild the soundtrack is full of 80s classic tunes and new party anthems.

Make this the soundtrack to your next wild night out!

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’

“Rescued after 15 years in a cult, Kimmy Schmidt decides to reclaim her life by venturing to New York, where she experiences everyday life with wide-eyed enthusiasm. On a whim, she rents a room from Titus, a gay wannabe Broadway actor, who makes ends meet as a street performer in Times Square. The unlikely pair find they’re well-suited to help each other out, with Titus reintroducing Kimmy to modern life, and her providing him with the inspiration that you should never give up

Crazy, camp and cheesy is probably the best way to describe this show. If you like a big dose of nonsense then you will love it.

The fourth season will launch on Netflix May 30, but it’ll be the first time a season of the show will be split into two halves.

THE SONGS

Despite the fact that the theme tune is one of those songs that will stick in your mind all day there are a lot of great songs in the episodes.

Since Titus loves to perform there is a LOT of that which I love. The performance I enjoyed the most was his parody of Beyonce’s ‘Lemonade‘ – it’s fabulous!

I really don’t think there are any down-beat songs in here as it is just such a happy show so the music reflects that!

Santa Clarita Diet

‘Santa Clarita Diet’

“Joel and Sheila Hammond are everyday suburban real estate agents in Santa Clarita, California. The couple face a series of obstacles when Sheila has a medical transformation into a zombie and starts craving human flesh. With Joel and the family trying to help Sheila through the trying time, they have to deal with neighbors, cultural norms and getting to the bottom of a potentially mythological mystery.”

I always knew that I would get around to watching this show as I love Drew Barrymore, I love horror and I love comedy. Now that Season Two is about to be released I have finally started watching the show and what can I say – it’s everything I thought it would be.

It has just the perfect mixture of humour and gross-ness for me – oh and camp, it can be described as very camp! I’m not quite ready to delve into the realms of ‘Walking Dead‘ just yet so for me this is the next best thing.

I am currently trying my best to watch all of Season One before Season Two is released on 23rd March and I really recommend you to do the same.

THE SONGS

The song featured on one of the trailers for Season One is Cake’s cover of ‘I Will Survive‘ which I guess could be Sheila’s anthem in this show as she struggles to survive in this strange new situation she finds herself in.

There are a lot of ‘light’ songs as well as ‘heavy’ songs on this list which I think kind of reflects the humour and darkness in this show. Enjoy the songs that have been featured, enjoy the ones that I have added as I think they also fit the theme and as usual I will be adding more songs as they come up in the new episodes.

When We First Met

‘When We First met’

“After spending a night with the girl of his dreams only to become just friends, a man gets the opportunity to travel through time and alter that night over and over again until he gets everything perfect.”

My love of time travel movies continues and I was excited when I saw this pop up on Netflix. I really liked Adam DeVine in ‘Modern Family‘ so I was sure I was going to enjoy this too.

I wasn’t disappointed! This is a fun watch and a great ‘feel good’ movie.

THE SONGS

There is a lot of jazz music featured in the film which has introduced me to a few cool new songs from the likes of Count Basie amongst others. However, my favourite song from the movie has to be ‘I Will Follow You‘ by RIVVRS.

The playlist is a real mixed bag of songs and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

The Middle

‘THE MIDDLE’

“In the Heck family, middle-age, middle-class, middle-America mom Frankie Heck uses a sense of humor to try to steer her family through life’s ups and downs as she tackles her career goals.”

I didn’t appreciate how awesome The Middle was until it was on Season 4 and I soon managed to catch up real fast. It’s so easy to watch and you can really believe in the characters.

It’s currently on Season 9 and this is the ‘farewell season’ and I for one will be very, very sad when it ends. I’m really hoping we have a finale that will leave all the fans satisfied.

I’m hoping for a flash forward final episode which will see a wedding and a new baby Heck. What about you?

Watch all seasons now on Amazon Video.

THE SONGS

There is no theme song for the show as such but I reckon that ‘The Middle‘ by Jimmy Eat World would be a good choice!

There are simply far too many great songs throughout the seasons that it’s impossible to mention them all. So go ahead, follow the playlist, watch the show and be prepared to fall in love with the Heck family!

Schitt’s Creek

‘Schitt’s Creek’

“A wealthy video store magnate, and his wife, a formerly successful soap star lose their fortune when their business manager fails to pay their taxes. They are forced to rebuild their lives with their sole remaining asset: a small town named Schitt’s Creek which they had bought their son as a joke birthday gift years before

This is one of my favourite shows at the moment. Currently on Season 4 and I think the episodes are getting even better. I love all the characters for different reason but my favourite has to be Moira played by the awesome Catherine O’Hara. Although I loved her in Home Alone and Beetlejuice, for me, this is her best role!

I also love the family connection. Daniel Levy plays David brilliantly and does an amazing job of writing the episodes too. His dad in real life, Eugene Levy is probably best known for his role in the American Pie films as Jim’s Dad but again for me his role as the Dad in Schitt’s Creek is his best role!

Buy the DVDs or watch on Netflix.

THE SONGS

There’s a great mix of songs in the show – some classics and some modern. One of the latest songs featured in Season 4 is ‘Adore‘ by Amy Stark and I love it.

There isn’t a theme songs as such but if there was then I think that ‘Alvvays‘ by Party Police should be it.

Don’t delay get watching the DVDs or watch on Netflix today and then sit back, relax and enjoy some great music.

Shameless

‘Shameless’

“The series depicts the dysfunctional family of Frank Gallagher, a single father of six children. While he spends his days drunk or in search of misadventures, his kids learn to take care of themselves.”

I was a huge fan of the original UK version of this show and was a little sceptical about how it would work with the US version but to say I was wrong to be sceptical is an understatement. I love how it evolved into an entirely different set of storylines. So much so that I caught up on all the previous seasons in one month!

Watch all seasons now on Amazon Video.

THE SONGS

The theme song is ‘The Luck You Got‘ by The High Strung.

There are simply far too many great songs throughout the seasons that it’s impossible to mention them all. So go ahead, follow the playlist, watch the show but remember kids – ‘say no to drugs!’

Rita

‘Rita’

“Following the life of a very outspoken and rebellious woman, Rita is a school teacher who is competent in the classroom, but seems to need a teacher of her own in her personal life.

It’s immediately obvious from the very first episode that Rita’s personal life is very, very complicated. Her unconventional and often highly confrontational approach to dealing with situations is definitely what makes this not only great drama but awesome comedy.

THE SONGS

The theme song for Rita is ‘Speak Out Now‘ by Oh Land.

As you might expect from a Danish TV show there is a lot of brilliant Scandi-music featured in the episodes. However, just like the show it’s not all happy, happy and upbeat pop and there’s a fair share of dark, sombre and hectic.
