2. Banished

IMDB LogoIMDB Star
7.4/10
Reelgood Logo
57/100
Year: 2015-2021Rated: TV-MASeasons: 1
History, Drama

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 (Prime Video, Hulu, BritBox & 1 other). 11 episodes (100%) are available to rent or buy from $1.99 on 5 services (iTunes, Google Play & 3 others).

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.
