I think you would like the sci-fi TV drama Orphan Black. It’s made by BBC America in Canada and was originally aired on BBC Three in the UK, distribution has since been taken over by Netflix, where the fourth series has just concluded. I only realised after 8 episodes had already been released, so had the luxury of binging on the majority of the fourth series in a matter of days. Can Netflix do no wrong? (Apart from the Adam Sandler thing, but let’s pretend that didn’t happen.)
I’ve only seen the first two episodes of The A Word at the time of writing, but I’m not going to let that hold me back. It’s a six-part BBC drama series about a family wrestling with the A word in question: autism.
Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle has long been the only TV stand-up show worth watching. In this week’s episode (Series 4, Episode 5), it reached a new peak of brilliance.
I recommended the TV series The Game to my parents. In fact, I bought it for Mum’s birthday. Which is a pretty strong recommendation. If I was a millionaire, I would probably force all of my recommendations on people like that (I mean I would buy things for everyone. Not exclusively for mothers).
