So much TV goodness here – I think I’ve watched half so I have the other half to look forward to. Stranger Things was one of my TV highlights of 2017! For something light hearted, Grace and Frankie and Jane the Virgin are hard to beat. For thrillers, we loved The Fall, the UK police drama, Line of Duty and Designated Survivor. Happy Holibobs!
