The Tinder Swindler

This show has good pedigree from the start as it is produced by the same people who brought us don’t f***k with cats.  It follows the story of Simon Lievev who poses as the son of a billionaire diamond dealer to charm women.  They get a taste of a luxury lifestyle with first dates on private jets and 5 start hotels.  It’s a conflicting watch but very compelling.

Inventing Anna

The accent and the glamour strike you first.   However, it’s the story is which will make you binge watch this series.  Based on a true story, it follows Anna a super wealthy ambitious socialite with plans to take the New York art world by storm.  All is not quite what it seems and things start to fall apart leaving friends and financiers broken in the wake.  What I liked about this is that it keeps you guessing if Anna is the real deal all the way through.

Selling Sunset Season 5

If you are watching for the house porn, you have a bit of a wait this season as Season 3 kicks off with more drama than house selling!  If you haven’t seen Seasons 1 to 4, what are you waiting for?  It’s what you should watch on Netflix right now.  Multi-million-pound houses a glimpse into how the other half live both the owners of the houses and the agents who sell them.  Prepare to set aside a day as it’s a bingeable watch.

Pieces of Her

OK so you have now watched true crime and house porn peppered with Reality.  Now on to some full-on thriller content.  Pieces of her follows Andy, daughter of Laura who after an incident in a café starts to uncover her mother’s past.  All is not what it seems and its difficult for Andy to know who to trust and who could be trying to kill her and her Mum.  Toni Collete plays Laura brilliantly.  Toni is known for her award nominated performances in The Sixth Sense and Muriels wedding but is utterly convincing as a woman running from her past.

Bridgerton Seasons 1 and 2

Yes, it is worth the hype so if you haven’t watched this yet, I compel you to drop your embroidery and hop to it!  It’s a period drama reimagined, totally colour blind and with modern music given a Regency twist.  Its set back in a time where ladies were chaste and lives could be ruined by any hint of an illicit unchaperoned meeting.  The Bridgertons and the Featheringtons are two families with daughters of age.  Finding suitable suitors is of critical importance.  It is a heady mix of wealth, power and sex and totally engrossing.

Locked down due to Coronavirus and don’t know what to watch? Here’s 24 hours with Switch TV…

Well, we’re all in the same place right now. We can’t go out except to get shopping or a brief bit of exercise. So how do you spend 24 hours in front of the TV? Here’s our handy guide…

The newest member of the streaming family is Disney+

7.00am
No rush to get out of the house, and let’s face it, the news is depressing. So kick things off in style with one of the great Star Wars movies available on the newly launched Disney+. You can choose from all of them, from the classics right through to the ones launched in the last few years. My pick is Rogue One – where a team of galactic misfits fight against the Empire and set about stealing the plans for the Death Star, which links really well to the very first Star Wars film, A New Hope.

10.00am
After a long film it’s important to keep the tempo up with some high octane action. So how about a couple of episodes of the brilliant F1: Drive to Survive on Netflix. You can choose to follow stories from the 2018 or 2019 seasons. Watch out though, there’s some tasty language in some of the behind the scenes footage, especially a certain team boss…

12.00pm
It’s getting to lunchtime, so let’s relax a bit as you think about a bite to eat with The Great British Bake Off, all series of the original shows are available now on Netflix. It’ll be sure to get your taste buds going. Just don’t have cake for lunch!

1.00pm
Time for some series boxset action with Sky TV or an Entertainment Pass from Now TV. There are a huge range to choose from, our pick right now is the brilliant Billions starring Damian Lewis and Paul Giamatti. It’s intelligent, face-paced, witty and involves money and a bit of sex. Most of the things you’d want to make the most of the afternoon.

Billions is available on Sky Atlantic and stars Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis

5.00pm
It’s still light now until around 7pm, so how about something cultural to see the evening in? Sky Arts has a number of great shows to feed your inner-self, including Portrait of the Year and Darbar: Music of India.

7.00pm
Ok, time to step it up, and let’s go big with this one. There’s no sport on TV, so let’s go for one of the big Hollywood films from Netflix to make it a great night. Right now, you can choose from a great selection such as Rush, Inglourious Basterds, Training Day and the Hobbit Trilogy. Tonight we’re going to go for the excellent Jurassic World – dinosaurs in a theme park, what could possibly go wrong?

10.00pm
You might be thinking about winding into bed, but why? We’ve still got hours of great TV to go, all at your fingertips. Continuing with the disaster theme, let’s start with a couple of episodes of the excellent Chernobyl, available on Sky Atlantic and the Now TV Entertainment Pass.

12.00pm
Now we’re talking, let’s get some popcorn in the microwave and join Marvelous Mrs Maisel from Amazon Prime. Great outfits and great comedy as the 1950’s housewife transforms her life.

2.00am
Let’s go back to one of our new entrants, Disney+. They’ve got great shows as well as tons of movies and some great documentaries like Titanic: 20 Years Later to explore and enjoy.

4.00am
At this sort of the time most people are flagging, so only some classic comedy will keep you going. If classics are what you want, you need Britbox, which is a joint venture from the BBC and ITV, and contains their best shows from the past 30-40 years. There’s so much to choose from, with Only Fools & Horses, Downton Abbey, Gavin & Stacey and Absolutely Fabulous to name but a few. My choice is the brilliant Blackadder. Everyone has a favourite season, so pick yours and you can watch all 6 episodes, back to back, ready for your cornflakes as the sun comes up.

Let’s do it all again…
There’s so much to choose from, with packages available from £5.99 a month. Just put your favourite channels or shows into our package finder here.
