My Top 3 Boxsets - DVDs & Hopefully Getting TO 3rd Base

in hive-186561 •  3 months ago 

A new month of misery and lockdown and not having to look presentable is upon us, you can see boredom has reached an all time high with the topic of this months competition.

I don't know when last I heard the term boxset probably when Buffy The Vampire Slayer was still on TV okay may be Ugly Betty but really even in South Africa with our shit internet we be streaming boy.

I'm pretty picky when it comes to series since its such a commitment to get into a story and most of it has been complete rubbish of late, it made picking my top 3 pretty easy.

My top 3 Series

This is my entry into this month’s Top 3 contest.

This months topic is ENTER TOPIC HERE

My Nominations are:

Nomination Number One

House of Cards

My Reasons for the Nomination

In my opinion one of the most binge watchable series on the planet, but best to do it by yourself especially if the company you keep is a bit slow on the uptake or likes to take, House of cards is a great think piece and I am sure a lot of it is based on reality.

It takes a really boring topic, in American politics and jazzes it up into something much more sinister. It follows the life of Frank Underwood a Democrat appointed as the secretary of state.

Along with his wife, he sets out on a quest to seek revenge on the people who betrayed him while successfully rising to supremacy as the president of the USA.

Nomination Number Two

Mad Men

My Reasons for the Nomination

If you ever wanted to know what it was like to be an Ad man back in the 60s this show has it on point. It follows the life and times of Donald Draper, the creative director at Sterling Cooper in New York, tries to maintain a balance between his exceptional professional life and wavering personal life in the 1960s.

While the topic may sound hardly very thrilling, its done in a captivating way and introduces several concepts such as american excepionalism, womens rights, consumerism, infidelity, mental health and more.

The show is a slow burner but the pacing overall is good and tells the story of Don and his journey of self discovery. It may be 92 episodes of awesome but it ended at the right time.

Nomination Number Three

Peaky Blinders

My Reasons for the Nomination

The show is set in 1919 and follows a dangerous Tommy Shelby leads Peaky Blinders, a criminal gang based in Birmingham.

The show has some pretty colourful characters and you'll soon feel like you're part of Shelby company limited a hybrid family business and criminal organisation that starts off as a lowly street gang and turns into a major force in its city both economically and politically.

The show has started to lose its way in the final seasons but its still top acting and production value and worth a watch by order of the peaky fook'n blinders.

Lovin the picks @chekohler

I forgot about House of cards. That was ridiculously addictive, especially at the beginning. I thought it went off the boil towards the end.

I've never watched Madmen. It's always been on my shortlist but I've never taken the plunge. One good reason for starting would be Cristina Hendricks from Firefly. I have a small crush on her.

Peaky F*#£@ng Blinders! Awesome.

Great choices mate and good luck.

Gaz

I loved house of cards it was really that show first got me hooked on Netflix and I would binge it like mad when it comes out because my friends would too so we would all be their blood shot eyes chatting about how epic the season was

Lol mad men got me because I am in advertising too and let me tell you not much has changed since then! Expect the tech and the outfits most of it is pretty much the same!

You know, I started watching Peaky Blinders for the soul reason that Cillian Murphy plays in it. That guy is handsome :P That aside, he's also a good actor. An interesting series that one is.

Lol it’s a good enough reason for me his acting is top notch, not that the female eye candy is too shabby either

I'm glad we can agree. I don't think there has been one movie of his I didn't like.

Not sure why the use of the phrase "box set" got you in such a hissy fit 😂:

Anyway, not seen House of Cards but heard great things about it and Mad Men is not something I've come across either. Peaky Bloindas is a great one though - even more amazing is that I can't play the YouTube video because apparently, the BBC has blocked me viewing videos in the UK - dafuq!

Good luck in the contest, wonder if @rentmoney will fire up the cylinders on this one...

Lol box set triggers me the same way cis gender normative people use he and she pronouns and assume peoples genders

Hmmm perhaps you aren’t British after all; the plot thickens, either that or you’re not repping your britness hard enough

妈的,我被发现了!

Goku Pokémon right back at ya, konichiwa bitches

I'm kind of ashamed to say that the only one of your choices I've watched is Peaky Blinders, though even that one we're a bit behind on. I think we watched the first two seasons. Definitely a solid choice! I've heard great things about the other two, but just haven't seemed to get around to watching them, yet. Not a lot of binge-watching shows going on here when I'm staying busy binge-watching my clients workout in our Zoom training sessions. 😂

I'm expecting full razzing when I get my post up, because as I told @nickyhavey I do actually have the physical box sets....though at least they're DVDs and not VHS.

You should rightly be ashamed their is so little good TV so when something on this level comes out you should drop one weekend and hive it the good old fashioned college try

Lol okay Zoommer! I hate zoom calls they’re so clear and reliable I miss Skype where you at least spend the first 10 mins asking can you hear me? Can you see me?

Oooh I can’t wait! I expect pics to go along with it so I can also jump on the banter bandwagon
