Love Life (2020-)

An American romantic comedy anthology web television series with Anna Kendrick in the principal role, it is packed with an unexpected timeline.

Jason Sudeikis is the embodiment of a cool coach, who turns the approach to training on its head. A whole team of different personalities and cultures, he chooses traditional means to reach out to them; team spirit and patience.

A stellar ensemble cast who provide many funny and emotional moments, the first season makes you glad a second season is on the cards. Mixing American and British humour, you get the best of both!

A much needed and appreciated show!

Ratched (2020)

A psychological thriller web television series on Netflix , it lives up to the mystery, intrigue and gore it promises in the trailer.

Lavish production, sublime acting, great casting and directing make it a unique watch, barring the gory scenes which may not be for everybody.

Many stories weave into a singular plot, where you marvel at the depths that the human mind will go to, to achieve its ends. Every character seems to have a psychological issue, even if they appear not to.

An all star cast who provide a riveting commentary on the society we live in via their characters, it is one of those things you can’t stop watching once you have started it. Brilliant!

Criminal : UK (2019-)

A captivating British police procedural anthology series, it was an intense and enlightening watch.

The many crimes that were discussed, the unexpected revelations, the multiple perspectives from which to see a case and how people may not be what they seem, make it an effective education of the human psyche.

The minimalist set and camera angles highlight each and every expression and inflection, which demands your attention for this viewing experience.

Brilliant acting, writing and direction in this very human drama with a legal backdrop.

Enola Holmes (2020)

A refreshing film which balances many themes, it is relevant and appropriately paced.

Young Elona Holmes has an extraordinary life and education from her mother, which takes an unexpected turn when her brothers become her guardians.

Based on the first book on a series written by Nancy Springer, it has a unique approach and vision. Many cases and subplots unravel as the story progresses, which entertain and intrigue in equal measure.

Wonderful performances from the cast and especially the young decipherer in the making, excellent production values and enough twists and turns make it a joy to watch.
