    What movies or series have you been enjoying over lockdown?
    25-11-20

    Hi guys, Rebecca here, your Community Manager 😀

    Let's face it, when it comes to evenings and weekends in lockdown, things to look forward to can sometimes get a little challenging.

    Movie nights are a great way to snuggle down in the evenings, get your favorite snacks set up and get stuck into a great film or series.

    Have you guys been binging any series or perhaps seen a really amazing movie?

    I have been really enjoying The Crown on Netflix, as well as The Undoing on Sky Atlantic! Both are excellent and leave you needing to watch another episode!

    I found the first series and a half of Designated Survivor really good although the plotline did get a little stale towards the end, but it's still a good time filler, and Netflix also added my favourite film - As good as it gets - starring Jack Nicholson and Helen Hunt which is always worth a second, third or fourth watch 😀

    @Russell thanks for your recommendations - I have not tried either of those so will be sure to give them a go this weekend 🤩

    Look forward to hearing what everyone else has been enjoying! 🤗

    Hi guys,

    I am watching a lot of stuff ATM but most recently watched 'Shot in the dark' on Netflix. It is a docuseries and I found it to be very dramatic and intense and it made me want more when it finished.

    I will watch most things but I love documentaries about Weather, Animals and a bit weird but Murder and Crime. I welcome any suggestions!

    👋

    @Tillymint Hello Tillymint! So glad to have you as a new community member! 🤩

    That sounds fab, I will give that a go. If you like murder and crime, I have just finished 'The People vs OJ Simpson' - now I have always heard that it was such a current affair in its era - but wow, after watching it, I now understand why! I was too young to have appreciated the intensity of it at the time, seeing as though I would have only been six yeas old.

    Great acting though, and it sounds like it would be right up your street! 🤗

    I'm currently watching The Great British Menu, this year they're doing a special Christmas themed banquette for the NHS staff 😍 which is lovely and well deserved. I love watching it as the food looks so magical!

    I like the Crown for the history, remembering some of the things in the press, I think Helena Bonham Carter does a great interpretation of Princess Margaret

    @Huckleberry I could not agree more! I think they are all more like the Royal Family than the actual family themselves! 😀

    I was so pleased Peter won too! Was a very talented youngster. I thought Matt Lucas was a great addition too. @Huckleberry
