Everything we're streaming while in iso

It's been a little while now since we first began isolating due to the coronavirus pandemic.

And while we've been unable to do much other than stay inside we've been relying heavily on our streaming services to help us get through.

So, if you need any inspiration on what to watch this week, here are some of the movies and shows our team has been watching:


Parasite is now on Stan

"I know it won Oscars, and I’ve seen people all over my feeds raving about how great it is, but I was still not prepared for what a masterpiece Parasite really is. I had no idea about the plot line (and I won’t spoil it for you now, because I think going in blind is great) but when it dropped on Stan, I knew I immediately had to watch it. It’s somehow so funny, dark, twisted, so sad all at the same time and I highly recommend you watch it with a blanket over you so you can hide behind it!"

"This is a really weird one for me and not the kind of show I'd ever normally watch (I guess that's iso for you!), but I recently got into Formula One: Drive to Survive. It was so interesting to see how the sport works and I was so surprised to learn that there are only 20 drivers in F1. The drama that goes on behind-the-scenes is so interesting and the rivalries between the drivers is gripping. Would highly recommend if you like sport or reality TV!

"Staying in the sport genre, I also watched the first two episodes of the Michael Jordan docuseries, The Last Dance, and that was such an interesting watch as well. I can't wait for the next episodes to drop."

The Marvelous Mrs Maisel, The Man in the High Tower and Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist

"I’ve been going between three shows: The Marvelous Mrs Maisel, The Man in the High Tower (both Amazon Prime) and Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist (Stan). They’re all different – divorced woman becomes comedian, what if Hitler won the war and girl hears people’s feelings in song – but the thing they have in common is that they’re all pure escapism. And that’s something we all need right now."

Unorthodox on Netflix

Unorthodox is one of those rare series that will only ever exceed the expectations an inordinate amount of hype has placed on it. The series is based on the true story of Deborah Feldman who fled her life in a strict Hasidic Jewish community in Williamsburg, New York in pursuit of freedom and independence.

“A four-part mini series shot largely in Yiddish, Unorthodox will suck you into the story of Esther Shapiro, who attempts to leave her life and orthodox marriage by fleeing to Berlin, only to be pursued by her well-meaning, but rigid husband Yanky.

“The series gives an incredible insight into the way a culture rooted in tradition, exists in the heart of the world’s most modern city and what happens when the two worlds collide, halfway across the world.”
