What I've watched

Prison Break: Season 1
...Drama, Action.  For some reason I seem to dip in and out of episodes, using them when I've got some time to watch something but not enough to watch a full episode. I adore this show - which has one of my friends rather surprised because of the violent content!

H2O: Just Add Water
...Drama.  This is my safe, fluffy and light show to relax to. It's funny and even better now I'm re-watching it for the second time round!

Shugo Chara: Doki!
...I've now finished this season, and have moved on to Shugo Chara: Party! Doki got a bit serious which is why I delayed watching the final episodes. Party drives me a bit nuts as it isn't 100% anime, but I just skip forward the parts with real people in. 2nd time round I'm not skipping the skits with the Shugo Charas as they are rather funny now I know them well. I adore having Dia with Amu permanently. 

Bodacious Space Pirates
...Anime.  I'm a bit addicted to this show - it's awesome! Most anime like it have a fair amount of inappropriate content which is why it's so awesome to have one which is almost totally 'clean'. There's a real sense of camaraderie here, lots of action and adventure too!

Hanasaku Iroha
...Anime.  This is a quieter anime, but by no means boring. Learning about how a hot spring inn in Japan works is interesting. Ohana is hard working, and rallies the team around - yet she has to rely on them when she's seriously ill in one episode. Again another show with strong camaraderie. 

...Anime.  Not loving the new opening/closing songs. However, the plot twists are increasing, it's nice to learn more about the truth of what's going on, alongside the usual hilarity.

Winx: Season 2
...Little beats watching my favourite show, especially when I need to unwind...
