Hidden Gems - Digital Treasures, February 2017

image

These days we have access to so many amazing digital TV offerings, whether paid for like Netflix, Amazon Prime or NowTV; or free or advertising supported like BBC player, All 4 or ITV Hub. With so much choice it can be hard to decide between all the offerings, there's sadly no cross-platform search or recommendation engine. So, here at The Digital Fix we've decided to unearth some of hidden gems of the streaming TV world, for your viewing pleasure. Every month we'll pick out the best, or most interesting, from what's new, old or obscure.

No Offence

We're not sure how we missed this BAFTA nominated show first time around, but it's now showing it's second season on Channel 4. Created by Paul Abbott of Shameless and State of Play, this darkly comedic police procedural is excellently written and season one is well worth a binge!

The Whispers


image
Loosely based on a Ray Bradbury short story, this sci-fi drama is executive produced by Steven Spielberg. In it, a series of accidents occurs around children, who all communicate with the same seemingly imaginary friend. An FBI agent investigates and finds connections not only between the different children's cases, including her own son, but also to her missing husband.

A Series of Unfortunate Events


image
Based on the popular series of books and the movie, Neil Patrick Harris takes over the role of the evil Count Olaf, as originally played by Jim Carrey. For those not familiar, the children's novels by Lemony Snicket (the pen name of American author Daniel Handler), which follow the turbulent lives of the Baudelaire Orphans after their parents' death in a fire. Great family entertainment!

Teen Wolf

A little (sorry) long in the tooth this one now, but this TV reboot of the Michael J. Fox movie was surprisingly popular with the YA demographic and certainly worth checking out.
