Series recommendations for you to watch in lockdown

Some of you may have been doing different things to keep your life a little more interesting recently; maybe you took part in Dry Jan, tried Veganuary or started a new work out regime... but one habit we just don't want to kick during this lockdown is nestling up on the sofa to watch a good TV series. So, if you're stuck with what to watch next, here is a Bernard round-up of shows we have been watching, from guilty pleasure reality TV to emotional dramas and light hearted American indie's.

The Serpent - BBC

This series follows the real life story of a murderer, thief and seductive master of disguise – Charles Sobhraj, who notoriously murdered young tourists along the Asian hippie trail in the 1970s. Starring Tahar Rahim and Jenna Coleman, The Serpent is an eight-episode show available to stream on BBC iPlayer right now. 

 

Bling Empire - Netflix

If you’re looking for a brand new reality TV show to binge on Netflix then I think Bling Empire is just the answer. Following LA’s wildly wealthy Asian and Asian Americans as they go all out with fabulous parties, glamourous lifestyles and drama – this will become your new guilty pleasure. 

 

Bridgerton - Netflix

We definitely recommend it goes straight to the top of your list if you haven't already seen this. Bridgerton is a period drama with a modern twist which follows the Bridgerton family and all their life drama surrounding Debutante balls, arranged marriages and working out who is behind the scandalous newsletter columnist known as Lady Whistledown. The first season has eight episodes and we already can’t wait for season two. 

 

It's A Sin - Channel 4

Set in London 1981, It’s A Sin shares the lives of five friends/ flat mates who are all working, loving and finding their way in the world. Their lives quickly turn upside down by the HIV/AIDS pandemic, spanning a decade until 1991 and this five part mini-series explores how they must fight as a movement like never before.

 

High Fidelity - Amazon Prime

High Fidelity follows the ultimate music fan and a record store owner, Rob, who's obsessed with pop culture and Top Five lists including her past and present love interests. Her and her friends all live in the rapidly gentrified Crown Heights neighbourhood of Brooklyn and this one season show is a modern reinvention of the 00s film by the same name which starred John Cusack. If you want a series with a great soundtrack behind it and something that will make you laugh and cry in equal measure, then we recommend this high-ly.
