6 awesome TV shows to watch this autumn

Autumn. Tis the season of endless cups of tea, dark evenings and blanket forts. What better way to supplement this cosiness than with a does of good telly. Here are my personal picks to keep you entertained:

1. Supernatural - So you may already know if you follow me on Twitter that I am a huge fan of Supernatural. Season 11 premiers in the US tonight, so if you're naughty and keep up with things on American time there's that. Season 10 however for those who are tracking behind with the UK will begin next Wednesday on E4. So much Winchester lovin'.

2. Downton Abbey - I have to admit I haven't kept up enough with the last couple of series, but Sundays won't be the same for many of us without Downton. The final series is already in full swing but you can catch up on ITV player in no time for a giggle and probably a few tears.

3. American Horror Story: Hotel - I have such a love-hate relationship with this show, and for good reason. American Horror Story is as gross and creepy as it is slick and cool. It's something I always want to watch but end up doing so with a pillow over my eyes. This season I'm intrigued by the casting of Lady Gaga, and the annual Evan Peters fix is of course catered for.

4. Peep Show - Cold, dark nights call for some comic relief, and so November will see Channel 4 airing the last ever series of Peep Show. This was one of the first 'grown-up' (a.k.a. slightly rude and sweary) comedy shows I ever watched, so it's going to be a nostalgic one for me! I'm not sure it's quite as funny these days as it was back in the earlier series, but Mitchell and Webb antics are always a good shout.

5. Luther - I'm so happy that Idris Elba agreed to come back for a mini-series of Luther. There is no exact date yet but we'll see our favourite emotionally unstable detective back on screens before the year is out. If you missed the original three series you simply have to go back and watch them (I think they're still available on Netflix).

6. Parks and Recreation - So technically Parks and Rec has sadly now finished after 7 seasons of hilarity, but luckily if like me you're still not totally over it, Dave is bringing Pawnee back to our living rooms. Season 5 will kick off this coming Monday (12th October) so be sure to tune in.

What are you looking forward to watching this autumn?
