Of Coffee and TV Shows #2018BOTY

If you were having coffee with me, I would thank you for visiting and ask if you can feel the festive season brewing….. Everywhere you look festive colours are popping up, festive specials out and even TV has got festive feel good programming. 

We are ending the year with a festive special; one post a day celebrating the Best Of The Year 2018 #BOTY2018. Do feel free to jump in, just use the hashtag in your tags so others can find you 

If you were having coffee with me I would tell you its Day 2 of 25 and I should be write about a TV show that made my year great. 

Top on my list would be TV Soapies such as Generations created and produced by Mfundi Vundla. Which has been running on SABC1 weekdays at 8pm without fail ever since it first aired in 1994 (except for the time it went on break because due to “creative differences” half the cast “left” and it was rebranded to Generations: The Legacy) Watching it over supper is like a family tradition no rhyme or reason…….

Generations The legacy Mfundi Vundla

Then there’s also Rhythm City, Skeem Saam and Scandal ETV  which are all weekday TV Soapies (from 6.30 – 8.00pm)

If you were having coffee with me I would ask you, if you are surprised I watch Soapies well I love how they tell everyday stories and you can even say I watch for research purposes; so I can develop the characters that I write and even maybe one day, who knows people will gather round over supper to watch something I will have helped shape


If you were having coffee with me I would tell you that maybe I like watching the animated show Teen Titans Go and might even have done questionable things to watch it.

If you were having coffee with me I would tell you that the festive season is upon us but at this rate looks like wont be much of any festivities going on with the whole fuel situation and the looming price hikes and our crazy multi-tier pricing system  but hey as long as I have TV, The internet and my blog its on

what your festive line up looking like?





  1. Ah, great to see Generations at the top of your list. That soapie has been running for ages, I used to watch it, when I was still living in SA.

    Anyway, this “I watch Soapies…for research purposes” made me laugh. Because it’s what I say too when I watch Real Housewives. It’s just for fun, let’s admit it. 😀
