1. Banished

IMDB LogoIMDB Star
7.4/10
Rotten Tomatoes LogoN/A
Reelgood Logo
62/100
Year: 2015-2020Rated: TV-MASeasons: 1
Drama, History

What it's about: At its heart, Banished is a story of survival. Though it is set in the stark historical reality of the founding of the penal colony in Australia in 1788 after the arrival of the First Fleet, it is not the story of Australia and how it came to be. Rather, it is a tale of love, faith, justice and morality played out on an epic scale in a confined community where the stakes are literally life and death.

Where to Watch: 11 episodes (100%) are available to stream on a popular subscription service (Hulu, BritBox & Hoopla). 11 episodes (100%) are available to rent or buy from $1.99 on 5 services (iTunes, Google Play & 3 others).

Comedy, Crime

What it's about: Porridge is a British situation comedy broadcast on BBC1 from 1974 to 1977, running for three series, two Christmas specials and a feature film also titled Porridge. Written by Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais, it stars Ronnie Barker and Richard Beckinsale as two inmates at the fictional HMP Slade in Cumberland. "Doing porridge" is British slang for serving a prison sentence, porridge once being the traditional breakfast in UK prisons. The series was followed by a 1978 sequel, Going Straight, which established that Fletcher would not be going back to prison again. Porridge was voted number seven in a 2004 BBC poll of the 100 greatest British sitcoms.

Where to Watch: 25 episodes (96%) are available to stream on a subscription service (BritBox). 20 episodes (77%) are available to rent or buy from $1.99 on 2 services (iTunes & Prime Video).
