Things to do or watch when self-isolating

Recommended Posts

Everyone needs to watch Inside No 9

 

This Sunday afternoon is already a nightmare with no sport. Likely I might have to work at home as well. Going to do my nut.

Thought of two things:

 

Build a pyramid out of toilet rolls

Arrange the pasta in alphabetical order

Settling in with my 13 month old and wife. It's going to be awful, we are already climbing the walls.

Mine is slightly older but I feel your pain.

It will have to be something with a long run.

Obviously depends on your taste in watching material.

Game of Thrones - haven't watched it - so could - son has the box set.

Friends - See them all

Film sets - LOTR and the Hobbit films

Star wars and the spin offs

 

I have a lot of DVDs and Blurays so really I shouldn't have a problem finding something to watch.

The birth rate might in 9 months or so.

 

But you have to maintain a 'safe distance' !

Is that on Netflix?

 

Enter it into a search engine and I am certain that plenty will be found.

Agents of SHIELD is worth a watch, especially if you're a fan of the MCU.

 

It starts off a bit slow, but then gets progressively better and better, well worth sticking with.

Only recently got into Line of Duty, so going to watch all series.

 

That's sorted about 4 days. [emoji2957]

Setting teaching cover work is actually keeping me very occupied. So no need to bury myself in Netflix yet.

Given it a go. First episode was alright, second one seems a bit arty and trying to be clever for my liking. I'll stick with it in case it improves.

If anyone is missing their football fix - and wants to see the skates going out of the play offs again - the Netflix Sunderland documentary series two was due to be on again anytime now. The Aussie Test Netflix series although (not the episode with the 4th Ashes test in it) might be worth a watch.

Don't F**k With Cats on Netflix is worth a watch...

 

This. Probably the most mental thing I’ve seen on TV. Shocking and gripping in equal measure.

Personally I thought the documentary was pretty exploitative and some of the footage was gratuitous and unnecessary. Its a gripping story for sure but it also gives the killer a bit of the notoriety he was looking for.

I’m struggling to remember the early ones. But don’t let me down and hang in there

First one was in a wardrobe, second one was a silent one about two blokes robbing a house. I've enjoyed the third one about the homeless bloke so it's getting better.

Really disappointed in Amazon’s Nazi hunting thing, it can’t seem to work out wether it’s a cartoon or serious. Missed opportunity imo.

I don't want to watch miserable things. Currently, I'm re-watching Palin's 'Around the World in 80 Days' on iPlayer. Then ill do the rest of his stuff, although pole to pole isn't available - I think Amazon has snuffled it up, but im not making Bezos any richer so ill get it off usenet.

I have the complete Palin travel series on dvd. If there's any way that I can help, let me know.

Glad to hear it. I loaded them all onto my phone and iPad so that I could watch them on long flights.

 

It's going to be a long time before I finish them all.

Weirdly, I was googling this series yesterday because Max Beesley is in The Outsider.

I’m off work ‘until further notice’, so I’ll probably just end up on here acting like even more of a helmet. May dig the Scalextric out the spare room.
