5 shows to binge-watch this Autumn
We all know the feeling. One show ends, (R.I.P. GOT) X-Factor Celebrity is total crap, and you’re wondering what could possibly replace it and stop you from socialising with your friends and going outside instead of binging under a blanket (not that I’m judging). Whether you’re hungover from Freshers’ Week, your brain is melted from a 12-hour library day or you’ve finished all the Black Mirror episodes, here’s a list of things to watch this Autumn. You’re welcome.
Michael Sheen and David Tennant. Angels and demons. A mission to prevent the Anti-Christ from taking over the world. Need I say more? Well, this 6-episode series is fantasy-filled and hellishly funny, plus there’s a Queen mixtape.
Puberty. Comedy. Hormone Monsters who set out to heckle the characters. Sounds good, right? This cartoon comedy is full of anxiety about growing up but witty enough to not leave you in a puddle of your own post-adolescent tears. And it’s got new episodes coming soon.
The Troubles. A group of Irish schoolgirls (and one ‘wee English fella’). The good, bad and ugly of growing up. Intrigued? This 2-season Irish comedy is full of heart, humour and heavy on the Irish accents.
1950s glamour. Comedy. Women performing comedy. I’m not joking when I say that this series on the subject of comedy is funny but vulnerable and self-aware.
Hard-hitting. Impactful. A true story we all need to be aware of. This limited series about the Central Park Five, five boys wrongfully convicted of rape and assault in 1989, is devastating and gripping.
