Here’s what I’m eyeballing right now.
So very many good things you can watch if you are unable to take one more second of US election coverage.
I am LOVING the latest breathtaking Netflix juggernaut so very much. Fabulous cast, beautiful sets, costumes and locations. Bewitchingly understated performances. (Well… except Winston!) All depicting the tragedy and triumph of the current Queen’s life.
I am trying NOT to binge watch this, because I want to soak up each ep and let the detail and drama wash over me properly. If you haven’t started this yet, grab a box of shortbread and a huge pot of tea/glass of gin and get on with it. Wear a kilt, even. On Netflix.
Also on Netflix (thank god for Netflix!) this (genius Emma Freeman directed) Australian series is an ace spin on the usual, predictable zombie plot line. It starts with a muddy bang and continues in a sort of friendly-yet-gently-menacing style.
There’s a little of the brutality that you might expect, but it’s also really about making sense of relationships and identity in a world that’s confusing (even if you haven’t returned from the other side.) I loved this and can’t wait for Season 2. On Netflix. #PleaseSupportAustralianTelly
I think this might be my favourite dramedy ever. EVER. It’s written by Louis CK and Pamela Adlon and is 1000% on point. Better Things follows single mum and actor Sam Fox as she tries to balance life, kids, love and career. That sounds kinda boring but it really, really is not.
Sam has a canny-yet-clumsy, truth-telling way of saying stuff perfectly… It’s beautifully written, funny and painful and perfectly encapsulates what it is to be a human, woman, mum. So, so, so good. Do not miss it. It’s on US iTunes. Thanks to Steve and Michelle for telling me about this.
I’m watching other less expertly made things too. Reality type things. But I won’t talk about that now. It upsets some people…
Hope you are holding up okay during this unnerving time.
