What I've Been Streaming Lately

This week I’ve been under the weather so I’ve spent a lot of time snuggled beneath a duvet watching movies and box sets to pass the time while my immune system does its thing. Lucky for me Panasonic dropped me a line and asked me to share what I’ve been streaming lately. No problem! Let’s take a look at what I’ve been watching, but before you do, show them some love and check out their Panasonic HD televisions if you need a new screen for your box set binges!

Designated Survivor


Kiefer Sutherland from 24 returns to the screen, this time appointed president as a the result of a terrorist plot which leaves him as the last man standing. His attempt to rebuild the country is consistently under threat with White House insiders involved in further terrorist attacks. Plenty of twists, turns and political drama make this great if you enjoyed 24 but want something slightly different.
Watch On: Netflix

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel


This multi- award winning TV series is set in the late 50’s and is all about Miriam Maisel, a Jewish House wife. The eight part series follows Midge and her trials and tribulations when her husband who is a budding comic confesses suddenly to having an affair and leaves her. After a few drinks she braves it and gets on stage at the local comedy club and realises she’s actually funny. The show is some thing special, and I’m really looking forward to the second series.

Mozart in the Jungle


This one was a recommendation through Twitter and thought I’d give it a try. It’s actually based on the 20o5 memoirs of Blair Tindall (Mozart in the Jungle:Sex, Drugs and Classical Music) and her adventures in her professional life and career as an oboist. It follows Hailey as she plays for New York Symphony, several high profile gigs and with the orchestras of Broadway. A thoroughly enjoyable watch!

Not Cinderella’s Type


It’s a modern day Cinderella story based on the well loved Jenni Jones book. It follows Indy as she moves in with her Auntie and Uncle after a life changing event turns her world upside down. There’s teenage angst, fab characters, some serious issues dealt with in a sensitive manner, a few cheesy lines and accidental love. It’s an unexpectedly good film, definitely worth a watch.

Creed


The latest in the long line of Rocky movies, this isn’t your typical blokey boxing movie. The story focuses more on love, adventure and taking a big chance when life presents a small opportunity. Stallone is present, but the main character is former champ Apollo Creed’s long lost son. A surprisingly heartwarming movie that’s easy to watch.
