Black Mirror

In an abstrusely dystopian future, several individuals grapple with the manipulative effects of cutting edge technology in their personal lives and behaviours.

This show changes from one episode to the next with no continuity whatsoever and I’m all here for it! It goes from one crazy scenario to the next and leaves you speechless every time. I binged watched Black Mirror with my siblings towards the end of lockdown and the show in its entirety represents a future we could be heading towards. Bare in mind we are still in the midst of a technological revolution and with new technology released daily this brilliant Netflix original isn’t too far off.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Ray Holt, an eccentric commanding officer, and his diverse and quirky team of odd detectives solve crimes in Brooklyn, New York City.

For all those comedy geeks out there who have a weak laughter spot this one is for you. This show consists of 7 seasons with season 8 being released this year but I must say, this is the first time I have EVER finished a show in a month flat. 7 seasons of laughing, crying and learning (oh yes this show also drops nuggets of wisdom about the LGBTQ+ community as well as racial inclusion etc.) This is a must watch for anyone looking to unwind after a long day and perhaps laugh a little.

Peaky Blinders

Tommy Shelby, a dangerous man, leads the Peaky Blinders, a gang based in Birmingham. Soon, Chester Campbell, an inspector, decides to nab him and put an end to the criminal activities.

I’m currently watching the show as I am typing this but if you’re into British television with a gangster twist then look no further. Guns, organized crime and murder plagues the streets of Birmingham, England as The Peaky Blinders look to grow their organization. I’m hooked on Cillian Murphy’s portrayal of Thomas Shelby (the acting leader of The Peaky Blinders), he’s cold, concise, ruthless and to the point. This show has long episodes about 40 minutes a piece so get the popcorn ready get comfortable because you’re in for a helluva ride.
