Weekly Lists

29th March 2021

This week we’ve got a powerful documentary on black British history, a slightly senseless Sherlock spin-off, beer brewing monks and a seriously silly sitcom. Plus, we’ve got an Israeli drama series which is becoming quite the sleeper hit…

3 Seasons Netflix 33 x 45 mins
This drama now airing on Netflix is, in a lot of ways, is pretty similar to much of its ilk. However, with this one it isn’t some wealthy Californian family, whingeing as they climb into their Prius . This is about the Shtisels, a Haredi family living in an Orthodox community in Jerusalem.
Score: 8.9
1 Season Netflix 8 x 50 mins
This is a Sherlock Holmes spin off about a bunch of angsty, misfit teenagers who help their eccentric detective leader unravel London’s biggest mysteries.
Score: 6.0
1 Season BBC iPlayer 1 x 60 mins
There have been a few former trends come back in recent years – flared jeans, the 70s shag haircut, platform shoes. And we’ve just received word of the latest resurgence, on its way back from the medieval era: monastic brewing.
Score: 7.7
7 Seasons Netflix 153 x 20
Now don’t get us wrong, we love a police procedural with high-octane chase scenes, shocking discoveries and gory forensics. But even we need a sweet palette cleanser after a winter full of bitter detective dramas.
Score: 7.9
