Bingeworthy Box Sets For Those Cosy Nights In


Spring may be just around the corner but, with the British weather being less than predictable, there is every chance a rainy day will put outdoor plans on hold. To help, we asked a few of the Finura team what addictive series have been keeping them glued to their TVs.


Big Boys on Channel 4 – It is about two boys who are VERY different but are thrown together when they start attending the same university. It’s got a lot of university nostalgia and is equal parts heartwarming and funny. You really start to root for all the characters and there are parts where you will probably cry, both from laughter and empathy with what they both go through.


I’m into ‘Shrinking’ with Jason Segal and Harrison Ford. Segel plays a therapist called Jimmy Laird, who is dealing with severe grief after his wife’s death and begins to breach ethical barriers by telling his patients what he really thinks, resulting in massive changes to his and their lives. I like it as it’s so wholesome and very funny.


I’ve just finished binge watching The Traitors series 1, can’t wait to start series 2 – genuinely some of the best TV!  Otherwise, I’m a sucker for anything murdery!  Recently binge-watched the full box set of Top Boy which I LOVED.


I’ve just finished the second series of The Bear. For anyone who hasn’t heard of it, it’s about a young, award-winning chef from the fine dining world who returns to his hometown of Chicago to run the family sandwich shop after his brother’s suicide. Sounds weird and maybe a little depressing but is totally enthralling, and fascinating to watch on so many levels. Each character has their quirks and challenges from self-doubttostrained familial relationships and the crushing realties of trying to run a small business on limited resources. These disparate individuals on their own journeys of discovery and, in their own unique ways, come together as ‘a family’ to create something truly special. The effort, the passion, the commitment, the teamwork and dedication to craft, the sheer attention to detail in absolutely everything they do, now that’s inspirational.


I don’t really watch much TV (too busy with the kids!) but when I did get a chance to command the remote control, I watched Fool Me Once on Netflix but I think pretty much everyone has seen that!? I would recommend it though as I found it to be like a revolving game of Cluedo – you had to constantly think who of the many potential suspects did the deed.

Since that far off day, ISAs have undergone many changes.
