It’s been a long few months since this whole global pandemic hit us all and we’ve been stuck in our homes.
The most that I was able to do was go out to work and go out out to Tesco for some shopping. Now I’ve been busy I’ve done some work in the garden, I painted, did jigsaws, wrote a script and improved at cooking and drinking too for that matter.
One thing I’ve done is watched a lot of television and film. I’ve been able to watch so much and catch up on what I’ve missed.
One of the greatest things I’ve discovered and really gotten into is Seinfeld. Such a clever and hilarious show it’s been a brilliant bit of escapism and reliable for a laugh right from the top.
Another great show is Community not only did I fall in love with this incredible show in particular seasons 1- 3 are sheer perfection. One of the funniest, most random and original shows I’ve ever watched. Can’t recommend it enough to everyone.
My top 10 shows during Quarantine
- The Sopranos
- F is for family
- Its always sunny in Philadelphia
- The Ranch
- The Simpsons
- Lethal Weapon
- Family Guy
- Parks and Recreation
I’ve watched some incredible new and old films as well as re watching some old classics. It’s been a great time for film fans aside from being able to go to the cinema of course.
I’ve watched the Shining over five times this year. Three times in one week at one stage the film truly had me in it’s grips. I woke one night screaming after going into room 237 in my sleep and it was a wild wonderful ride and I’m chasing the dragon ever since on that one for sure.
The King of Staten Island
What a film! Comedy, drama and lots of hanging out this film is going to have a similar faith to comedies such as funny people or the other guys where there’s a cult following of fans. With such an incredible cast, Pete Davidson, the incredible Marisa Tomei and a great performance by the epic Bill Burr. A great film about a loveable fuck up trying to figure out his life.
My top 10 new films during Quarantine (new to me)
- The King of Staten Island
- Captain Fantastic
- What’s eating Gilbert Grape
- Midnight Cowboy
- Doctor Strangelove
- The Gentlemen
- The Impractical Jokers movie
- Coffee and Kareem

That’s it for now. It’s been great watching so much and reading, finding new music but I want to go outside again and move freely.
