A look at the lives of employees at a big box store. They’re Getting Their Shift Together.
7.8/10 stars on IMDb
“Gutted when this series ended! Clever plot, bonkers discussions and cool humour. This workplace comedy from the producer of “The Office” followed the lives of a quirky ‘family’ of employees at a super-sized mega store. Love how they adapted the plot to deal with the workplace challenges and logistics of Covid too!”
“Our whole family loved watching Jeremy and his band of agricultural experts as they wrestled with a backdrop of unhelpful weather, disobedient animals, unresponsive and needy crops and of course, the unexpected pandemic. Hilarious and insightful!”
This Is Us
A heartwarming and emotional story about a unique set of triplets, their struggles and their wonderful parents.
8.6/10 stars on IMDb
“I like how it shows the different ways a family’s life is being lived. It also flashes back to when their parents were younger which gives you a good perspective that you never fully understand the life that your parents have lived or things that they have experienced.”
Stick Man lives in the family tree with his Stick Lady Love and their stick children three, and he’s heading on an epic adventure across the seasons. Will he get back to his family in time for Christmas?
7.2/10 stars on IMDb
“Don’t ask!! We bought our daughter the ‘Stick Man’ book, and I’ve pretty much learnt all of the words to it, so when it comes to reading her a story at bedtime (she usually falls asleep in the middle of it), I normally choose this one as I think she’s heard it that many times she just gets bored, rather than a new story that gets her brain going at a time of day it shouldn’t be! They brought out an episode/movies for it which is a much longer screen version of the book.”
Vikings transports us to the brutal and mysterious world of Ragnar Lothbrok, a Viking warrior and farmer who yearns to explore – and raid – the distant shores across the ocean.
8.5/10 stars on IMDb
“Real escapism! Often programmes like this are fictional and timelines are false, but this really sticks to recorded historical events (yes, I’m that guy who has to pause and check with google to confirm if the event is historically accurate or not 😅)”
Follow Jeremy Clarkson as he attempts to run a farm in the countryside.
9.1/10 stars on IMDb
“Absolute genius! Easy watching and non-stop laughs!”
A man is able to choose his own afterlife after his untimely death, by having his consciousness uploaded into a virtual world. As he gets used to his new life and befriends his angel (real-world handler), questions about his death arise.
8/10 stars on IMDb
“A really funny take on what the future is going to look like. Some things I can definitely see happening and others are an exaggeration on how things are today. Well worth the watch and I hope they make another season”
A comedy series adapted from the award-winning play about a young woman trying to cope with life in London whilst coming to terms with a recent tragedy.
8.7/10 stars on IMDb
“A fine line between hilarious and dark. Phoebe Waller-Bridge is an incredible writer and hooks you in from the beginning. It made me laugh, it made me cry and it made me cringe and season two just got better!”
“It’s 🥵🌶️🔥♨️ The End”
The Rugby Sevens
“The Rugby Sevens was screened live and for free! I watched S.A lose the World Champs…”
