With a 21 day South African lock down announced to help curb the spread of COVID-19, I’ve been binge-watching a TON of series. True, I got started on my lock down a bit early, owing to circumstances beyond my control,so I’ve had a jump start on my watch list,
Here are my top three recommendations:
For the love of Jason Momoa,the one true Khal Drogo and Aquaman, turn your gaze to this Apple TV produced post-apocalyptic series, set 300 years in the future, when mankind has lost the ability of sight.
Momoa stars as Baba Voss, chief of the Alkenny tribe, whose twin stepchildren, fathered by a seeing heretic, are born with vision. What follows is Baba Voss ‘s quest to keep the witch hunters from finding his kids and handing them over to the cruel, sadistic Queen Kane (Sylvia Hoeks).
It’s only eight episodes long and sure, you are going to be questioning why the Evil Queen needs to be masturbating or be eaten out to communicate with her God in nearly every episode BUT the action sequences showing off ALL of Momoa’s never-ending hotness while fighting literally blind are worth it.
What can I say? I love it when Momoa goes barbaric 😉
If you thought Ruby Rose was sexy before, WAIT until you see her in the Batwoman suit!
This premiere series centres on Rose as Kate Kane, the Dark Knight’s younger cousin, who rises to defend Gotham after Bruce has been missing for three years.
First introduced in the Arrowverse’s 2018 crossover ( the timing is a bit out for where that interlude fits into this series’ timeline, although the 2019 Infinite Earths one is much better explained), Batwoman is a breath of fresh air for the CW network.
Its multiple themes of combating homophobia, the rise of a female superhero and the fight between good and evil are much stronger than sister Arrowverse series Supergirl,making it a compelling must-watch.
I’ll readily admit that I have a thing for the ghastly and nothing is as bone-chillingly gruesome without actually showing much blood than psychological crime series Mindhunter on Netflix.
Now in its second season, this series based on retired FBI agent John E. Douglas ‘s book Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit ,stars Frozen and Glee’s Jonathan Groff as Agent Holden Ford and is a mind trip from the get go.
Anyone worried that Groff’s squeaky clean, boy band look will make it difficult to believe he is an FBI agent with a penchant for the decidedly disturbing can be assured that that is not a factor here. If anything,it makes him and his often bizarre chemistry with the killers infinitely more fascinating to watch.
Happy #SouthAfricaLockdown viewing, Everyone!
