Things to replace your crippling GOT Addiction

Yes, I'm there too and it's terrible. I actually tried to write an email to Rob.Stark at my workplace today and realised I had forgotten the persons surname...whoops.

Desperate times call for desperate measures so I suggest you make yourself some loaded-nachos and start watching these to tackle the withdrawal symptoms...

1) Stranger Things - The new season is coming in October so if you get into it now you'll just finish in time for the new release. A dark, spooky series that I was so addicted to I watched the whole season in one night. As soon as you start watching, you'll know exactly what I mean. Definitely one to watch.

2) Narcos - So addictive and there's a new season out tomorrow!!! A take-on Pablo Escobar and his infamous drug business.

3) Deathnote - I haven't watched the series as I couldn't find it on Netflix but they do have a film on there and it's pretty bloody good. It's about a teenager who discovers the deathnote, a book belonging to a Death God where he can write anyone's name and they die...he has big plans for making the world a better place but things go massively wrong.

4) GBBO - It's back and with 2/3rd's of a new presenting team but it's still wonderful. Maybe being British I'm being biased but it is a bit of a National treasure *heart eyes emojii*

5) How to Get Away With Murder - Amazingly addictive. Although I was disappointed to realise this is the first EVER TV show I've watched where a black female has been the lead and not just there to support the man or a white actress, hopefully the amazing performance of Viola Davies, who is one of my favourite actresses after this show, changes that.

6) Orange is the New Black - Nods all round, a great show based on a true story of a woman jailed for drug money smuggling in her youth. Crazy eyes will be one of your favourites I'm sure.

7) 13 Reasons Why - Not massively my cup of tea but everyone else seems to rave about it so hey, maybe you will too. I've had a bit of a dip in now and then and since GOT is over *uncontrollable sobs* I might be driven back.

8) DEXTER - Absolute bloody brilliant series that I would definitely recommend (just promise me you wont watch the last ever episode, kay?).

9) Shameless - Watch the US version it is so much funnier than the UK one. It's actually the first show where I properly 'got' US humour and it wasn't just slapstick. It's ironic, dark, gripping but also makes me cry with laughter.

10) Trainwreck - because I'm a bit in love with Amy Schumer. She's just so funny.

11) Poldark - Uber British Drama and it's amazing. A little bit like Downton Abbey on crack.

12) Modern Family - Good God I love this. So unbelievable funny. Another one where I was like...'wait...what...I like American humour now?' I LOVE IT and I can guarantee that you will too.

I hope this helps you in these difficult times...after all Winter is coming (but it's looking like 2019),
