Laugh your socks off with this week’s Must List
Unfortunately, despite the title this show isn’t about the cheese aisle in a humungous Tesco – though we reckon that would make great viewing – and is in fact a seriously funny series about that oh-so-comical topic: death. We’re headed up to heaven in this fantastical, escapist treat.
We’re not sure you’d be able to sell a ‘show about nothing’ these days. We’ve become far too comfortable with complex plots and high-octane drama. But Seinfeld isn’t of this era, in fact, you might even argue it’s from a better one.
We all need a good belly laugh to cheer us up, and This Country is full of ‘em.
Anyone who has ever worked in an office has encountered at least one David Brent-type in their lives. Which is what makes this classic mockumentary so funny, obviously.
This show is the ultimate mood booster, guaranteed to bring you out of your funk and into the bright, funny world of the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
Going quietly crazy having been locked-down with your family for too long? We recommend hiding in a cupboard and enjoying twenty minutes of laughter at another family’s dysfunctional shenanigans.
Small towns are the perfect setting for a hysterically funny sitcom. Because who better to laugh at than weird and wonderful locals, who love nothing more than stirring the community pot and making mountains out of molehills?
