For me - I insist on watching

Classic Eastenders - they're up to December 1993 at the moment
Superstore - I absolutely love this
Normal People

Normal People- but still not sure exactly what I thought of it other than it was too long and a bit frustrating.

DH has been watching Superstore -is that the one with Ugly Betty in it?

Just finished giri/haji. It is a bit different and I got really invested in the characters. Really interesting portrayal of Japanese life.

The Last Kingdom! I'm not in lockdown but subscribed to Netflix and Prime for the dc and dh who are stuck in the house all the time and have fallen in love with this programme.

I watched the Witcher at the start of lockdown. Imagine if legolas had a really super hot brother who had more than two facial expressions........ the story line is a bit all over the shop if you are not familiar with the games as it’s non linear. Who cares though. He’s just so dreamy.

Sparklingbrook - yes!! I thoroughly recommend it.

Sparklingbrook Mon 18-May-20 17:32:33

Thanks Settle59 I might join DH.

He has also been watching reruns of Robins Nest and Man about the House. shock

We watched 'Merlin' (BBC) on Netflix as a family- 5seasons!- and all loved it, it's a great family watch, if old.

We're now into 'The Durrells' on Netflix- also good family viewing (prob with slightly older kids).

I really watched The Vicar of Dibley on Netflix. I loved every second of it. It was the perfect antidote for all this shit.

I’m currently watching Poldark.

MissConductUS Mon 18-May-20 17:34:51

Good Witch and Hanger 1, both on Netflix.

JollyHostess Mon 18-May-20 17:36:18

Race Across the World-on iPlayer, just amazing!
Goliath- Starzplay
Dead to Me - Netflix

The Terror on Amazon Prime. Made even more spooky as it was based ( very loosely) on an actual event.

1Morewineplease Mon 18-May-20 17:38:21

Oh, and I really do second Goliath.

Anthony Bourdain No Reservations - I want to travel to Georgia and Senegal now ASAP!

The Get Down - 70s hip hop music show on Netflix created by Baz Luhrmann who i adore. Got some great songs and costumes in it

I too have been watching The Vicar of Dibley again ! Absolute childhood throwback. So comforting

I am an insomniac & caught Family at War (circa 1970/72 program about a family in ww2 in Liverpool) I have now put it on save & it has become compulsive - its interesting because it shows attitudes & recently the issue of someone lost presumed dead where the wife/widow wouldn't be able to marry for 7 years & broken marriages etc

Settle59 Mon 18-May-20 17:41:48

Sparklingbrook - I've been watching 'Man About the House'! - I forgot that it was the show that spawned 'George and Mildred!

Gingernaut Mon 18-May-20 17:42:00

Netflix. Happy!

Kidnapped girl's imaginary friend teams up with her drug abusing, hit man, alcoholic dad and saves her from paedophiles.

Sin City style violence, sex, drugs and mayhem with magic and demons thrown in.

Definitely not for children.

mumwon Mon 18-May-20 17:42:39

oh & Picard (I am a treky & its really good)

RedRosie Mon 18-May-20 17:45:19

A whole channel. 'Talking Pictures' on Freeview. Old films of all kinds. Brilliant.

MouthBreathingRage Mon 18-May-20 17:48:37

This Country - I'm getting through the boxset on Iplayer whilst I cook dinner every night and absolutely love it. It's so so reminiscent of my younger years living in very similar circumstances, I can think of so many people that Kerry and Kurtan are similar to.

cardibach Mon 18-May-20 17:57:06

DEVS on iPlayer is really good.
Couldn’t get to the end of the first episode of Normal People.

sidsgranny Mon 18-May-20 18:04:26

Just finished all 3 seasons of Ozark on Netflix. Bloody brilliant.

A Place in the Sun has also become a bit of a guilty pleasure.... blush

Cooroo Mon 18-May-20 22:46:08

I need comedy now so it's been Friday Night Dinner and Schitt's Creek.

Otherwise Last Kingdom, Vienna Blood and a re-watch of Casa de Papel (Money Heist). Just to practise my Spanish obviously, not to drool over El Profesor.

ChooChoosBiscuitTin Mon 18-May-20 22:50:14

Gossip Girl on Netflix. It's so shit that I get embarrassed when DH comes into the room and catches me watching it.

<whispers> it's so good though, I cant stop watching it!

Wasywasydoodah Mon 18-May-20 22:52:43

Dave on iPlayer. Stumbled across it and it’s truly brilliant.
