Lockdown 3.0 is amongst us and now more than ever, we need some form of escapism, because lets face it.. the local corner shop isn’t gonna cut it. We have put together a list of 5 tv shows show you should watch right now, and where you can find them.
Whether you prefer a gripping thriller or a comforting period drama, there is something here for everyone.
We hope you enjoy them as much as us!
FIVE TV SHOWS:
THE CIRCLE USA : NETFLIX
This reality tv show had people gripped when it launched on channel 4 and now Netflix have uploaded the USA version. If you haven’t heard of The Circle, it is a game based around social media, contestants all live in the same apartment building but don’t meet and people basically have to catfish their way to the prize money. Bizarre concept, but it works!
THIS IS US : AMAZON PRIME
I feel like most people have seen this but if not, you need to. We are currently 5 seasons in and it is AMAZING. I only started watching it maybe a year ago and I binge watched the first four seasons in a matter of weeks. We follow the lives of two parents & their three children over various time periods. I can’t say much more because you need to go in not knowing much, it works out better this way. Trust us. What we will say is that it is, heart-warming, hilarious & heart SHATTERING. You’ll sob every few episodes. Easily. YOU’RE WELCOME.
BRIDGERTON : NETFLIX
Everyone & their horny nan is talking about this series and rightly so. It is an American period drama that is basically Netflix’s answer to Downton Abbey but with a sprinkling of sex… which makes for the perfect tv show if you ask us. We follow Daphne Bridgerton, the eldest daughter of the powerful Bridgerton family as she makes her debut onto Regency London’s competitive marriage market.
I know, marriage market. The horror. However Regé-Jean Page makes it almost appealing..
LINE OF DUTY : BBC iPLAYER
One of the best crime drama tv shows to exist, in our humble opinion. This London based series is based around the AC-12 unit who investive corruption WITHIN the police force. It is such a clever series with twists & turns! The sixth season is launching early this year (around February/March time is what we’ve heard on the grapevine….) so you have five incredible series to binge.
SELLING SUNSET : NETFLIX
If you want to fully immerse yourself in the world of the INSANELY rich, this is the show for you. American reality show following a real estate firm in Los Angeles that only cater to the crazy rich. Think multi-million dollar mansions. It is cringe & scripted beyond belief. But oh so good.
Have you watched any of these? If not, does anything take your fancy?
