What box sets to watch while we wait for next season to start

With these unprecedented times I have discovered that suddenly I have time to get on the garden and do jobs I have been disinclined to start. Now the issue is to decide what box sets may be worth investing in.

Initial thoughts are Game of Thrones and Monty Python films (HG and LoB as a start).

What about other recommendations?

Given the theme, I'm going to suggest sporting things:

All Or Nothing - a series profiling an individual team each season. There's an All Blacks one, but I'd recommend both the Manchester City and Dallas Cowboys ones.

Friday Night Lights (the film, though the TV series isn't bad if you like a bit of drama) - an adaption of the book by HG Bissinger in which he follows the1988 Permian High School Panthers football team as they made a run towards the state championship. An eye-opening look into all sorts of American issues, and the book is well worth reading.

I'm no Manure fan, but I found The Class of '92 very compelling. We all broadly know the story but I enjoyed the way the documentary was put together.

Invictus - because it's brilliant.

Building Jerusalem - the stories behind *that* England team. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Oh well a start. Thanks BM.

Can't say I am a great fan of sporting films and haven't watched any of those but may see what Invictus is like and then move on. One sporting film I did like was Living with Lions. Bentos was great and the fact that there was MJ made it special.

Breaking Bad, The Wire and Stranger Things are fantastic. Haven't seen Chernobyl or Westworld yet.

Even though some class me as a 'Boomer' I'm a great Marvel fan. So watch all the films in order starting with Captain America. The First Avenger. Watch in chronological order rather than release date order.

Was going to suggest The Wire but Ayerza beat me to it.
Did enjoy West Wing

On a comic note, Early Doors and Phoenix Nights always does it for me

Certainly an eclectic mix and some I wouldn't consider Probably give a few a try. Seen a few and at least there are some good suggestions.

Don't think you can beat the Paris final though.
