TV Talk: Binge-Worthy Box Sets

With the world in lockdown, it’s only natural for people to use the time catching up on some box sets that have long been on their watchlist. However, if you’re looking for something new to indulge in, here are some TV shows that are so addictive you’ll fly through them.

Peaky Blinders

Let’s start with the single most compelling show in the world, Peaky Blinders. In 5 series we have seen the Shelby family rise to the top of society, and face some serious adversity along the way. Led by Cillian Murphy’s Tommy Shelby, the Peaky Blinders are a force to be reckoned with.

This season, more than any other highlights the way Ragnar’s four sons embody the spirit of their father. Previous seasons have struggled with bringing them out of Ragnar’s shadow, but season 6 successfully establishes the sons as leaders in their own right. This is clearly evident in Bjorn’s struggle to understand and implement his own ideas of kingship, while Ivar, Ubbe, and Hvitserk undertake their own journeys. Continue reading

A warning before reading this post. It is long, I ramble a lot, and I’ve tried to keep spoilers to a bare minimum. My life has been consumed by this show for the past couple of month, and while I still have a series to go before catching up, I thought now would be the perfect moment to highlight the best moments of what I’ve seen so far.
