Have you completed Netflix? Can’t find anything new on Amazon Prime or are you already Disney’ed out thanks to Disney+? Well, in these uncertain times, one thing is for certain: there is still SO many amazing and addictive TV box sets out there for you to enjoy.
I have rounded up the list of the best, and literally ONLY the best boxsets from across ALL the streaming platforms. And with a lot of time on your hands, it could be your chance to *actually* complete some classic TV shows like The Sopranos. Or, you could even watch the 1960s drama, Mad Men which introduced us to the talents of Elisabeth Moss and former GLAMOUR UK cover star, Kiernan Shipka.
One you definitely shouldn’t miss is Chewing Gum, which has just dropped on Netflix. If you’re anything like us, you’re currently addicted to Michaela Coel’s remarkable drama I May Destroy You on BBC, so now is a great time to revisit her BAFTA-winning comedy.
Or you could binge-watch the two seasons of BBC’s The Split, which follows the Defoe family of divorce lawyer sisters who sashay around in Roland Mouret dresses and serve not only settlements but the sass, too. There are estranged fathers, a battle-axe mother, hot lawyers and more affairs than EastEnders. Prepare yourself as you may want to enrol in an evening course in law after watching this!
We are also all looking for a bit of escapism right now so a heavy helping of comedy could be just the remedy and Amazon Prime’s The Marvellous Mrs. Maisel serves that up in spades. From the creator of the iconic Gilmore Girls, the show follows Golden Globe winner, Rachel Bronsnahan’s character, Midge who, despite seemingly having everything a 1950s housewife could need, she secretly desires a stand-up comedy career.
Comedy doesn’t really come any better than Schitt’s Creek and all six, including the final series of the show, are on Netflix right now. The comedic show follows a family who suddenly loose all their money and the last remaining asset they own is a small town aptly called Schitt’s Creek where they are forced to move to with hilarious consequences. It’s worth watching for the one liners of Catherine O’Hara’s Moira Rose alone. And yes, she is the mother from Home Alone. Mind. Blown.
Looking for something with a little more grit? Well, Amazon Prime has come to your rescue again with the addictive AF Hunters, which stars Al Pacino. The show follows a selection of Nazi hunters who discover a number of high-ranking Nazi officials are living in 1970s New York and conspiring to create a Fourth Reich. The hunters have other ideas and what ensues is nothing short of bingeworthy TV.
Of course Netflix has some of the best shows ever created to binge, from the likes of Gossip Girl, and The Crown.
Aside from that, of course there are the modern classics such as the tear-jerking Queer Eye and the best prison drama since Bad Girls, Orange Is The New Black, and those cult classics, Sex and the City and Friends. So, what better way to switch off from the world than diving into a good boxset?
Here’s our roundup of the best boxsets ever and the noteworthy ones you need to watch now…
