Big Jim Hamilton’s Netflix recommendations: With the global pandemic forcing much of the world’s population indoors, many of us have been increasing our Netflix intake.

Anyway, here are my Netflix recommendations:

BLACK MIRROR

I’ve only watched a few.

They’re very weird and hopefully not too prophetic. Watch the one with the Prime Minister, called ‘The National Anthem’.  Some guy kidnaps a member of the royal family and demands that the fictional PM, well, gets jiggy with a pig on live television in order to set them free.

The one with the video game sex is also pretty weird. Like I say, hopefully not too prophetic.

TIGER KING

Definitely a series that will take you away from the boredom and anxiety of normal life right now.

Aside from the treatment of animals – which I hate – the characters and the storyline are both hilarious and captivating. #caroledidit

OZARK, SEASON 3

Dark and gritty with a compelling narrative. I love the drug smuggling, narcos, gangster movies and this is one with an eery twist.

KILLER INSIDE: THE MIND OF AARON HERNANDEZ

Shocking and sad, a docu-series that will leave you wondering what’s true and not. The underlining sub-plot about what repeated concussion does to the human brain make for an at times troubling watch for an ex-contact sport athlete like myself.

The potential long term effects of Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) and society’s attitudes to professional sportsmen are all under the microscope in this one.

13 REASONS WHY

This teen drama might seem like a strange choice for me. A teacher recommended it as it happens.

It’s a very dark tale but also a realistic storyline about an American high school student who take her own life and leaves audiotapes for her classmates.

WATCH: Jack Nowell of England and Exeter, takes on Adam Hastings of Glasgow Warriors and Scotland.
