Weekly Lists

2nd August 2021

It’s all eyes on the TV medal table. And once again Must is coming up with some lovely shiny golds, a couple of silvers, and one bronze – we’ll let you work it which is which in this week’s Must List.

1 Season All4 8 x 60 mins
Think Real Housewives with more vodka, roubles and murder, and you get a sense of just how wildly tacky this Russian-language series is. Then there’s champagne for breakfast, a fair bit of sex, and gold, gold and more gold.
Score: 6.3
1 Season BBC iPlayer 1 x 90 mins
Told through two men who planned the operation, this is the engrossing tale of how a team of hired assassins attempted in 1989 to assassinate the “King of Cocaine” Pablo Escobar, under orders from a rival drugs cartel.
Score: 7.8
1 Season Starzplay 4 x 60 mins
E M Forster’s masterpiece in a sparkling adaptation featuring Matthew Macfadyen and Hayley Atwell which shreds preconceptions of class, intellectualism, and personal relationships in Edwardian England. It’s so smartly done that even period drama refuseniks will love it.
Score: 8.9
1 Season Disney+ 1 x 120 mins
This was an extraordinary festival, with world renowned performers giving their best, showing every emotion from sadness, grief, elation and utter joy.
Score: 8.4
