Lockdown 3.0 Watchlist
Think Gossip Girl meets Downton Abby, for this one. Bridgerton is a Regency-era drama about the London social season and a mysterious writer who seems to know all about the secret lives of London’s most elite. Romance, drama, and intrigue are all on the table here.
A retelling of a French classic about a Gentlemen thief and a master of disguise who sets out to steal Marie Antoinette’s necklace. This modern-day version of this story is an action-packed thrill ride with so many twists and turns you’ll be on the edge of your seat throughout.
Back to Life
Miri Matteson has just been released from prison after serving 20 years for murder, now she’s back in her small seaside town trying to make a go of things. A darkly comic series originally from the BBC now you can catch on Netflix, if you liked Ricky Gervais’ After Life you’d love this.
The Karate Kid spin-off is back on Netflix this January, and it’s better than ever. The LaRusso family are still reeling from the high school fight, and Miguel is still in the hospital, what’s going to happen next?
New from Disney WandaVision is about Scarlett Witch and Vision living a seemingly perfect life in the suburbs without any superhero friends. However, their former lives seem to be creeping in with a distinct amount of fury. If you’ve missed the Marvel movies, then you’ll definitely want to watch this.
A super cute dramedy about a married couple looking to expand their family decide to adopt three siblings. It’s about the trials and tribulations of how fostering works. And it remains you that family’s come in all sorts of different shapes and sizes. A perfect addition to any watchlist.
The Wilds is new to Amazon Prime and should head to the top of your watchlist. This is a completely new show about a group of girls from incredibly different backgrounds to go on a wilderness retreat. Only things go sideways when the plane to get them crashes, and they are stuck in the middle of nowhere. Kind of like Lost meets Pretty Little Liars it’s got twists and turns on every front.
Bling Empire is an incredible look at the rich and fabulous lifestyles in L. A specifically focusing on Asian-American’s in this community, and there are some big personalities. If you liked Selling Sunset then you need to watch Bling Empire. Keep an eye out for Jaime Xie and her amazing outfits.
New from the BBC, this drama, starring Doctor Who’s Jenna Coleman is based on a jaw-dropping true story of the ‘Hippie Killer.’ Charles Sobhraj was a French conman and serial killer who would pick up travellers in Asia acting as a friend. Then he would steal from them before ‘getting rid of them’. Genuinely shocking stuff and definitely not for the faint of heart.
Two traditionally intelligent young girls realise they’ve wasted their high school careers and head out on a night of debauchery. It’s a brilliant and funny movie one you’ll definitely relate too. Perfect for watching as you head to the end of your own high school lives.
