Off work for a week sick - tv / film / podcast recs please!
forloves · Yesterday 07:04
I've had a minor operation and can't leave home for a week. I can't do much other than a couple hours a day of pottering. Thought I might try to shred some paperwork, declutter a couple drawers, make a photobook and watch tv. I need your recommendations! Also, how would you spend the week if you were in my position?

I’m coming with my recommendation but also to steal your recommendations! I’m on long term sick and particularly interested in podcasts.
I think your plan for the week sounds great - if I were to achieve half that in a week I’d be happy! The only thing is can you get outside at all? Maybe sit outside every day with a cup of tea? Fresh air is always good for recovery and will stop you feeling cooped up.
I’d recommend ‘I’m not a monster’ - BBC podcasts. There are 2 series, the first follows an American woman who joined ISIS and the second Shamima Begum.

I love podcasts - what genre do you like?
- the lady vanished
- foul play - my aunt and the hitman
- off menu
- shagged married annoyed
I also love taskmaster and the taskmaster podcast once I have watched an episode

I would also have some puzzle books (sudoku, crosswords etc) and reading books if you enjoy them.
Which streaming services do you have?

Workin Moms on Netflix. Pilot episode isn’t great but gets better!! Short episodes and the plot really develops as you get to know the characters

Teachers pet is a great podcast, listen to that then listen to the teachers trail.
I also loved the lady vanishes
Real killer is a good one, as is British Scandal
The wonderland murders
Deep cover... never seen again

I'm enjoying Daisy Jones and The Six on Prime - the last 2 episodes are Friday so a nice end to the week. I loved the audio book and the tv series is a really good adaptation - with the added benefit of music!

I've been watching Poldark on netflix, it's really good, I think there's five seasons but only four on netflix, you can also watch all seasons on Prime, I'm on season 2, I'm hooked, well worth a watch
