If there is one thing that a lot of people have been doing more of during lockdown, it is watching more television. However, if you feel like you have run out of shows to watch, don’t panic, I have a few recommendations for you. Read on to discover more about some of the exciting tv series to get stuck into and create some escapism.
You have probably heard of Selling Sunset, and if you have not watched it before, you may find yourself binging through an entire series in your bed in just one day! This series follows a group of LA-based estate agents who work for the firm The Oppenheim Group, who sell multi-million dollar properties to the one-percenters in the world. You get your reality TV drama fix mixed with some incredible properties, with the most lavish and luxurious property features. What more could you possibly want? It’s one of those love-hate shows that you just can’t switch off.
If you are a Netflix subscriber, Orphan Black is certainly a hidden gem on the platform at the moment. The series follows Sarah Manning, an orphan and outsider who takes the identity of a woman who committed suicide and looks just like her. I can’t go into too much detail, otherwise, I will give away the plot. However, it is one of the most impressive and unique Sci-Fi TV shows that I have come across. If you are a fan of the genre, I would certainly recommend giving this a watch.
Last but not least, we have Chewing Gum, which is an awkward, rude, and funny TV Series, which has been created by Michaela Coel, who also stars in the series. She is the creative force behind I May Destroy You, and she has really outdone herself with this series. It follows a young, black Londoner, called Tracey, who is intent on losing her virginity and escaping her Christian upbringing. It is a funny yet cringe-inducing take of young adulthood, which is bound to have you laughing, which let’s face it is what we all need at the moment.
One thing that we must point out is the importance of ensuring you consider security if you are streaming television shows. After all, the last thing you want is to be breached by a hacker. One thing that is recommended is using a VPN while you are streaming so that your IP address is hidden. Head to troypoint.com for a great guide on this that will give you all of the information you need and the different steps to follow.
