The 40 best Netflix box sets to binge today

From glossy US comedies to gritty Brit dramas, Netflix is stuffed with great shows. Here's our pick of the best Netflix box sets to binge

Best Netflix boxsets: Bridgerton

The scheduling straightjacket of old has been thrown off – replaced by a loose, comfortable gown we call Netflix. Welcome and our guide to the best Netflix box sets from the popular streaming service.

These days, we can pick and choose what we want to watch, and when we want to watch it. And nowhere has that felt more revolutionary than with the good old-fashioned TV series. Netflix is packed with them: hundreds upon hundreds of hours of glorious televisual treats across pretty much every genre there is. 

In fact, it’s what made the streaming service the must-have TV power-up it is today. Would it really be so popular were it not for original commissions such as Orange is the New Black or see-it-here-first super-shows such as Breaking Bad? Nope. While you may come to Netflix for the movies, it’s those box-sets you stay for.

But as is always the case with Netflix, it’s a tricky business filtering out the visual plankton in search of the oysters of excellence.

So we’ve done it for you: below you’ll find the best Netflix box sets – enough to keep you occupied for the entire year.

Taskmaster (S1-14)

Comedians, actors and other celebs take on outlandish and inventive tasks in this long-running gameshow presented by Greg Davies and Alex Horne. Horne also created the whole concept.

The assignments are frequently absurd and often unfair, but lateral and original thinking often brings home the points – and even if it doesn’t, the anarchic nature of the show means you’ll have fun watching the heroic failures. Taskmaster has now spawned 13 international editions, but trust us: the original British version is the still the best.

Bridgerton (S1-3)

Bridgerton’s bright and racially blind recreation of Regency London society won’t win many awards for historical accuracy. But the wise viewer shouldn’t care about all that. The real draw here are the costumes, the glamour, the balls (as in parties, you filthy-minded so-and-sos) and withering putdowns. Oh, and the simmering sexiness that’s always threatening to explode.

Now running to three full seasons and a spin-off about the young Queen Charlotte, this show is trashy, fluffy and daft at times, but effortlessly enjoyable with it.

Watch Bridgerton on Netflix

Killing Eve (S1-3)

Written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (for its first season, at least – each subsequent season has a different female head writer) and based on Luke Jennings’ Villanelle novel series, Killing Eve revolves around the relationship between a psychopathic international assassin (Jodie Comer) and Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh), the bored MI5 agent trying to track her down.

As the pair circle each other, they develop a mutual obsession that threatens both their careers and their lives. With this funny, shocking and unconventional show now complete, it might be a little galling to see that only the first three seasons are on Netflix UK. Binge-watchers will have to find the fourth and final season elsewhere (hint: iPlayer).

Derry Girls (S1-3)

All three series of Channel 4’s raucous sitcom are now available on Netflix, so if you missed them the first time round (or just couldn’t deal with All 4’s terrible picture quality and proliferation of ads), now’s your chance to be whisked away to early 1990s Northern Ireland and into the lives of four Catholic girls (and one English boy) as they navigate their teenage years against the background of the Troubles.

Not that Derry Girls takes itself too seriously – the sectarianism is really only another comic source to be mined in this joyful, hilarious coming-of-age comedy.

Watch Derry Girls on Netflix

The Last Kingdom (S1-5)

If you’ve got Game of Thrones done and dusted but fancy more of the same, this Bernard Cornwell adaptation might satiate your continuing demands for swords, sex and savagery. It may be based on real history rather than what’s going on inside of George R.R. Martin’s head, but The Last Kingdom’s saga of Anglo-Saxons and Norsemen struggling for power in Dark Ages England is as chock-full of intrigue, family feuding and big bloody bust-ups as anything we’ve seen in Westeros. All five seasons and a follow-up movie, Seven Kings Must Die, are streaming on Netflix.

Watch The Last Kingdom on Netflix

Detectorists (S1-3)

Mackenzie Crook writes, directs and stars in this lovely sitcom about a pair of Essex metal detector enthusiasts. On paper it looks like the recipe for a broadly comic Last of the Summer Wine-style “aren’t these country folks odd?” series, but there’s so much more to Detectorists.

It’s funny, certainly, with sharp writing and fine performances from Crook and co-star Toby Jones, but there’s also something gently powerful in its depiction of the English landscape, trudged over by this pair and their friends as they search for Roman gold or Saxon silver (almost always coming away empty-handed aside from a handful of ring pulls). Warm and affectionate but never sentimental, it’s a beautiful homage to hobbies, friendship and the countryside.

Watch Detectorists on Netflix

Hannibal (S1-3)

Mads Mikkelsen has arguably never more watchable than in this show, clad in the perfectly cut suits of cannibalistic but clever serial killer Hannibal Lecter.

As per Thomas Harris’ novels, Mikkelsen’s Dr Lecter is a mercurial psychiatrist brought in to assist FBI profiler Will Graham (Hugh Dancy), but it’s not long before the sinister shrink is manipulating the prodigious but fragile Graham. This is high-brow stuff for a network TV show: visually rich, full of Lynchian characters and featuring dinner scenes that will make your stomach rumble. Which is all rather unsettling, once you think about where some of the main ingredients came from.

Watch Hannibal on Netflix

Demon Slayer (S1-4)

Demon Slayer has become the highest-grossing anime franchise in Japanese history – and now Netflix viewers in the UK can see what all the fuss is about. The series – currently running to 55 episodes – follows the adventures of resourceful teenager Tanjiro, who returns from a trip to town to find his entire family murdered. All except his sister, that is, and she has been transformed into some kind of demon – which may be a fate worse than death. As he travels the land looking for answers, revenge and a cure for his sister’s condition, he finds himself recruited into the strange world of professional demon slayers.

Watch Demon Slayer on Netflix

Top Boy (S1-3)/Top Boy: Summerhouse (S1-2)

After a long hiatus, Netflix (with a little help from Canadian rap superstar Drake) revived this cancelled Channel 4 East London crime drama. With a seemingly bigger budget and the luxury of Netflix’s “make as many episodes as you want” approach, this new series of Top Boy picks up the story and expands its scope somewhat. The first of new seasons runs to a hefty 10 episodes, and the second eight.

The original two seasons, released in 2011 and 2013 (and now available to stream on Netflix as Top Boy: Summerhouse), only need four episodes apiece, and at times it feels like creator Ronan Bennett has cast his net a little too wide in the newer seasons – in his efforts to tell the story of modern England, some subplots are introduced then forgotten about an episode later. You get the sense Bennett may have always wanted to create a British answer to The Wire, but with the resources to do that bit off a little more than he could chew: the sheer amount of murder, mayhem and gunplay that goes on here simply feels implausible. That said, the characterisation remains a high point, with even the nastiest villains feeling like genuinely believable and relatable characters.

Watch Top Boy on Netflix

Better Call Saul (S1-6)

Spin-off TV series rarely replicate the magic of their parent shows. But, like the Cheers-spawned Frasier before it, Better Call Saul manages to succeed by creating its own magic. Starting six years before the events of Breaking Bad, it follows the early legal career of Saul Goodman. Then known as Jimmy McGill, he’s a former conman trying to make it work on the right side of the law.

While the stakes rarely get as butt-clenchingly high as they are for Walter White and friends in Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul manages to emerge from its shadow. This is a show that is funny, engrossing and almost as binge-worthy as its predecessor. It’s currently four seasons in, with a fifth already commissioned.

Watch Better Call Saul on Netflix

Ozark (S1-4)

Ozark follows Jason Bateman and Laura Linney’s bickering Chicago couple as they launder money for a ruthless drug cartel. Some of the most unconscionably tense scenes put on a telly screen since Breaking Bad.

Bateman’s financial advisor happens on a plan to “wash” the cartel’s dirty money in redneck rural Missouri. So he and his family must immediately up sticks for a fresh start in one of the US’s most deprived area. And just like that, murderous Mexican narco-barons become only one of many problems for the family.

Filmed in moody desaturated tones with bags of brooding and squalor on show, Ozark isn’t always a pretty watch. But if you like your drama series perpetually poised on a knife edge, it’s right up your street.

Watch Ozark on Netflix

Stranger Things (S1-4)

Stranger Things was originally envisioned as a one-off. Or an anthology series in which each season would feature a new casting, setting and story. And yet its first season proved so successful that we now have three seasons. All are set in Hawkins, Indiana and all focussed on the same group of kids and their families as the monstrous threat from the Upside Down looms once more.

Taking inspiration from classics like E.T., The Goonies, Gremlins and more, this show is shamelessly nostalgic for the 1980s. But despite the references and setting, it never comes across as overdone or hagiographic, and its themes and appeal are wide-ranging. Its blend of horror, sci-fi and coming-of-age drama works well. The excellent production values and soundtrack serve to forge a sense of real quality. It’s clearly one of the best Netflix box sets ever.

Watch Stranger Things on Netflix

Sex Education (S1-4)

A comedy-drama about the sex lives of a group of teenagers could have come across as exploitative and crass. But Sex Education feels anything but. While the humour is bawdy and the sex scenes graphic, the series as a whole is exceedingly sweet, charming and generous. Full of wonderfully complex characters and relationships, it’s a genuinely involving and entertaining look at love, life and identity, with a fast-moving plot that makes it easy to binge.

Watch Sex Education on Netflix

Love, Death + Robots (S1-3)

Like androids, ultra-violence and philosophising about intelligence, free will and the very meaning of life itself? There are now three seasons of short animated sci-fi tales on Netflix that offer all of the above and more. Some of the films (the longest of which are about 20 minutes, with most much shorter) are far better than others. The brevity and pace at which they come, and the breadth of subject matter and tone, mean one old adage is true. There really is something for everyone here. As long as they like robots.

Watch Love, Death + Robots on Netflix

I Think You Should Leave (S1-3)

Sketch shows, once kings of TV comedy, have fallen out of favour of late. But I Think You Should Leave is proof positive that there’s more than enough life left in this classic format: it just needed a jolt of weirdness to wrench it out of its cosy comfort zone.

Former Saturday Night Live star Tim Robinson co-writes and appears (along with a parade of familiar guest faces like Bob Odenkirk, Tim Heidecker and Andy Samberg) in a collection of crude, inventive and hilarious skits that rarely end up where you expect them to. The humour usually comes from a character “committing to the bit” by taking a social miscue or bizarre personality trait to uncomfortable extremes. It may sound simple enough, but Robinson and co have done nothing less than reinventing the comedy skit.

Watch I Think You Should Leave on Netflix

Seinfeld (S1-9)

What’s the definitive New York sitcom of the 1990s? Friends? Fuggedaboutit. For us, Seinfeld takes the cheesecake. An inventive, absurd and hilarious examination of the trivialities and trifles of the modern world, it never relies on slapstick or on indulging its viewers with cheap sentimentality (the vast majority of its characters are clearly horrible people), Seinfeld is a must-watch for all fans of comedy. And with each episode clocking in at a smidge over 20 minutes, it’s also perfect fare for weekend binge watching.

Watch Seinfeld on Netflix

Motherland (S1-3)

Despite starring in and co-creating the well-liked Catastrophe (streaming over on Prime Video), Sharon Horgan clearly isn’t bored of sitcoms about the trials and tribulations of parenting in the modern world: hence Motherland. Horgan stays behind the camera here, with the excellent Anna Maxwell Martin taking centre stage as the perpetually put-upon Julia, struggling to juggle career and middle-class motherhood amidst playground politics and parental power struggles. Even if it’s not the most original concept for a sitcom, its quickfire gags, strong characterisation and knack for hitting on truths makes it an easy and enjoyable watch.

Watch Motherland on Netflix

Cobra Kai (S1-5)

A series that started life on YouTube as a nostalgia-fuelled spin-off of the Karate Kid movies, Cobra Kai has now firmly established itself as one of Netflix’s best comedy-action-dramas. In fact, it far surpasses the beloved (but certainly aged) films that inspired it.

Back in the 80s, few could have imagined Karate Kid villain Johnny Lawrence – a spoiled bully with a nasty streak a mile wide – being the nuanced, relatable protagonist of his own TV show over three decades later, but here we are. Johnny is just one of several characters from the movies now firmly ensconced in this new life, and being given far more depth as a result.

Watch Cobra Kai on Netflix

The Fall (S1-3)

A tense crime series focussed on two compelling characters – Gillian Anderson’s icy detective and Jamie Dornan’s obsessive serial killer – The Fall is equal parts police procedural and psychological thriller.

Anderson has been a great actor for decades. But former model Dornan (best known for playing Christian Grey in the 50 Shades movies) is superbly cast as an outwardly normal, caring family man with a deep-seated sickness sitting just beneath the surface. It’s dark, disturbing and seriously involving to watch.

Watch The Fall on Netflix

Dark (S1-3)

If you’ll forgive us a lazy comparison, Dark is like a German version of Stranger Things. Both follow a group of kids trying to unravel a supernatural mystery; both feature a missing child and frantic parents; both are set (at least partly) in the ’80s. And both are great TV shows.

It’s there that the similarities end though, because Dark is a much more challenging watch than its American counterpart (and not just because of those German subtitles). This is a complicated and complex series that delights in constantly pulling the rug out from under you: just when you think you know what’s going on, it’ll pull a surprise left turn. It’s also rather gruesome and not afraid to puts its characters through the emotional wringer. Don’t let that put you off though, because this is one Netflix Original you don’t want to skip.

Watch Dark on Netflix

GLOW (S1-3)

This period comedy-drama about the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling isn’t really about 1980s wrestling at all, but about how a group of women rally against their demons and the patriarchy that strives to keep them down. GLOW could have easily fallen into the trap of a camp curiosity, or a simple, shallow celebration of neon spandex and super-strength hairspray, but has swiftly established itself as a smartly-written, character-driven comedy that’s among Netflix’s most bingeworthy original series.

Watch GLOW on Netflix

Schitt’s Creek (S1-6)

Every episode of this beloved Canadian sitcom is now on Netflix, which means many hours of strangely reassuring, utterly enjoyable telly lie before you. Schitt’s Creek stars Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara as a once-wealthy couple now bankrupt and forced to slum it in a tiny town they previously bought as a joke. Managing to be both acerbic and full of heart, Schitt’s Creek is possibly the perfect series to binge on during those long lockdown weekends. Truly one of the best Netflix box sets around.

Watch Schitt’s Creek on Netflix

The Good Place (S1-4)

Despite being an all-round bad egg on Earth, Kristen Bell’s character in this Netflix Original somehow ends up in heaven after she shuffles off this mortal coil. Turns out even angels can make mistakes at work.

While Bell’s performance stands out with her relatable struggles to fit into a world full of goody-two-shoes, Jameela Jamil’s outlandish vanity and William Jackson Harper’s uptight morals will also subject you to a few giggling fits. And unlike most sitcoms, The Good Place has a plot that will keep you gasping and gawping until the very end.

Watch The Good Place on Netflix

Love (S1-3)

If you’re even slightly drawn to Judd Apatow’s particular brand of mumbly, honest, relationship-based humour, you’ll almost certainly enjoy this comedy drama series he co-created – now three seasons strong.

Love is the tale of a couple of directionless people at opposite ends of the loser spectrum who stumble into a relationship that doesn’t seem remotely healthy for either of them. Laugh-a-minute stuff this ain’t, but spending time with the substance-abusing Mickey (Community‘s Gillian Jacobs) and the pathetic pushover Gus (Paul Rust) is an often awkward, frequently guffaw-inducing pleasure.

Watch Love on Netflix

Friends (S1-10)

The presence of every single episode of the 1990s’ biggest sitcom on Netflix feels like an occasion worthy of fanfare – even if, let’s face it, you’ve probably seen them all multiple times before.

For the two or three readers that don’t know, Friends is a long-running (10 seasons!) multi-cam sitcom about a sextet of… well, let’s call them “buddies” living in New York. While it’s tightly packed with great gags and compelling, series-arching plots, the show’s true pull is in its sharply-drawn, likeable characters. Ross, Rachel, Phoebe, Joey, Chandler and Monica’s travails as they navigate love, career, life and everything in between are sure to suck you in, even if some of the writing and production values can feel dated at times.

Watch Friends on Netflix

Peep Show (S1-9)

All nine seasons of Peep Show are now streaming on Netflix, so if you haven’t yet watched Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong’s groundbreaking sitcom – the longest-running in Channel 4’s history, no less – now is the time to venture into the minds of David Mitchell’s Mark and Robert Webb’s Jez, two best friends and flatmates who lurch from one disaster to the next.

Peep Show‘s “gimmick” is that we often see the action from Mark or Jez’s point-of-view, hearing their inner thoughts as audible voice-overs. In the great British comedy tradition self-delusion, self-hatred and social awkwardness loom large here, and though both the main characters are indisputably despicable, selfish idiots, it’s impossible not to get sucked into their (often horrifying) antics.

Many a true word is spoken in jest, as they say – and Peep Show is as much a meditation on the human condition as it is a comedy show. As the joyless Mark internally remarks after his girlfriend takes him to a fairground, “I suppose doing things you hate is just the price you pay to avoid loneliness.”

Watch Peep Show on Netflix

People Just Do Nothing (S1-4)

People Just Do Nothing is ostensibly a behind-the-scenes documentary about West London pirate radio station Kurupt FM, but it’s actually a wickedly funny examination of the same kind of hubris and self-delusion as exhibited by David Brent in The Office, presented in a similar mockumentary fashion.

The fact that the Kurupt crew clearly do know their Artful Dodger from their Pied Piper – they’ve performed live at multiple events, in character – adds an extra layer of authenticity to the whole thing, but you certainly don’t need to be a two-step aficionado to enjoy what’s going on here. It’s one of the finest low budget BBC sitcoms in ages, and the first five seasons are available on Netflix.

Watch People Just Do Nothing on Netflix

Rick and Morty (S1-6)

This animated comedy series about a teenage boy, his mad scientist grandfather and the strange sci-fi adventures the two embark upon sounds like pretty wholesome stuff, but Rick and Morty is probably one of the dirtiest, most violent and most cynical shows on telly, regularly plumbing the depths of human (and alien) depravity for laughs. But it certainly does manage to get those laughs, which is the point – and it succeeds in posing lots of interesting questions about time, family, physics and existentialism while it does so.

Rick and Morty‘s blend of toilet humour, OTT cartoon violence, wit-sweetened cynicism and multi-dimensional adventuring makes it a hilarious, mind-bending and always enjoyable watch. Perfect material for a lazy Sunday in front of the TV, in other words – and now all four seasons’ worth of episodes are available to stream on Netflix.

Watch Rick & Morty on Netflix

BoJack Horseman (S1-6)

This animated sitcom features Arrested Development‘s Will Arnett as the titular Horseman, a… er… “horse man” who found fame in a beloved 1990s sitcom but now lives in a haze of booze and self-loathing.

Set in a skewed version of Hollywood where humans coexist with anthropomorphic animals, BoJack Horseman features a strong cast (Breaking Bad‘s Aaron Paul plays BoJack’s best friend Todd), and offers a surprisingly nuanced portrayal of the “washed-up former star” trope. Most importantly, perhaps, it’s really, really funny. With dozens of episodes available (five seasons plus two specials), its perfect for binging.

Watch BoJack Horseman on Netflix

The Office (U.S., S1-9)

It may have started life under somewhat uninspired circumstances. US remakes of UK series rarely survive the dreaded Hollywood “glow up” without being entirely robbed of their charm. But The Office swiftly outgrew any restraints and developed its own identity.

Steve Carell lights up the earlier seasons as boss-from-hell Michael Scott. Plus there’s a strong supporting cast delivering great moments even into the Scott-free final few dozen episodes. It’s hard to think of a transatlantic TV reimagining that’s worked better. You’ll find all nine seasons (that’s an astounding 188 episodes by our count) streaming on Netflix.

Watch The Office (U.S.) on Netflix

Arrested Development (S1-5)

Dysfunctional families have been done to death on both the big screen and TV. But the Bluths are up there with the most self-centred, destructive and, well, downright hilarious bunch of the lot.

Straight man George Bluth desperately tries to keep his family and fortune intact. As their company is hit by the US government for embezzlement.

Superb performances from the likes of David Cross, coupled with tonnes of re-quote potential make this a must-watch. It gets a little lost after the first three seasons thanks to the actors’ other projects clashing with filming, but it’s still well worth watching until the very end.

Watch Arrested Development on Netflix

Peaky Blinders (S1-6)

This series, named after the 19th century Birmingham gang, is as good as anything else you’ll find on Netflix. Led by the strangely likeable and very dangerous Tommy Shelby, it tells the tale of a razor-wielding crime family trying their very best to keep control of their city while avoiding the watchful Chief Inspector Chester Campbell.

CIllian Murphy grabs the spotlight and will absolutely not let go of it in one of the finest drama series produced by the BBC in recent years. Get ready to binge-watch three full seasons of this historical gangster drama.

Watch Peaky Blinders on Netflix

Neon Genesis Evangelion (S1, plus two movies)

Huge robots battling huge monsters – aka “mecha” – might be an anime cliché, but Neon Genesis Evangelion‘s nuanced, almost postmodern take on the genre has established it as one of Japan’s most beloved cult phenomena – and one of the definitive anime series of the 1990s.

The series revolves around three teenage pilots who control the mysterious Evas, towering robots that seem to be humanity’s only hope against the “angels” – equally mysterious creatures that appear from nowhere to wreak havoc on cities. But the Eva-versus-angel fights, while thrilling, are far from the most interesting thing here: the series’ complex characters and mature themes elevate Neon Genesis Evangelion to the level of classic anime.

As well as the 27-part series, Netflix includes the two feature-length movies that conclude the story.

Watch Neon Genesis Evangelion on Netflix

Brooklyn Nine-Nine (S1-7)

If you’re not already an Andy Samberg fan (shame on you), Brooklyn Nine-Nine will make you one. That’s not to say he’s the only draw in this comedy cop show, though – the super-childish detective he plays is always at the centre of things, but each of the nutjobs he shares a precinct with have their own hilarious idiosyncrasies, not least of all the seemingly dry and dull Captain Holt.

It’s all as silly and immature as things get, and that’s just fine by us.

Watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine on Netflix

Black Mirror (S1-6)

Charlie Brooker’s series of standalone tales cautioning against the dangers of technology isn’t exactly what we’d call perfect binge watch fodder – the sheer darkness and cynicism on display can really start to weigh you down after more than a couple of episodes.

And yet Black Mirro is one of the most compelling and fascinating things on TV, particularly for those with an interest in how our lives are affected (some might say infected) by our relationship with smartphones, computers, video games, VR and social media.

Stuff readers, we suspect, fall into that category – although you don’t need to be a gadget expert to appreciate the wildly disturbing – yet scarily plausible – scenarios Brooker brings to life.

Watch Black Mirror on Netflix

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia (S1-16)

Narcissistic. Sociopathic. Sexist. Elitist. Delusional. And egos the size of a bull elephant. All descriptions that adequately fit every single member of staff at Paddy’s Bar in Philadelphia.

From kidnapping cats to poisoning rivals, to stalking love interests and getting drunk at every opportunity, you’re unlikely to ever find a group of people that you hate to love more.

Hilarity, madness (and Danny Devito in tight, tight skinny jeans) await.

Watch It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia on Netflix

The Crown (S1-6)

The Crown ranks as one of Netflix’s best original series to date. That’s partly down to the phenomenal production values that have been instilled in this retelling of Queen Lizzie II’s early years. Over £100 million was invested in this extravaganza, starring Claire Foy and Matt Smith, and that all adds up to a swanky amount of period detail.

Even those of a staunchly republican bent might find themselves sucked in to the two full seasons, which chart a series of major national events as well as delve deeply into the personal lives of the royal family. And with Olivia Colman taking the throne as an older, wiser Elizabeth in the upcoming third season, The Crown remains in a very safe set of hands.

Watch The Crown on Netflix

Dexter (S1-8)

Just what is it about Dexter? What is it, within an apparently straightforward contemporary drama series – police department employee with dark secret – that let it get green lights all the way through to eight seasons and 96 episodes? The sun-kissed, neon-lit Miami setting, perhaps?

It’s certainly not hampered by its charming titular protagonist and his goodly mix of attractive and/or amusing cohorts. Nor by its slick production. So it must be those moments when Dexter – both the character and show – hovers, knife already bloodied, unsure of itself… And then does what you thought it wouldn’t.

Watch Dexter on Netflix

Breaking Bad (S1-5)

If you’re one of those people that gets put off by TV shows just because everyone else in the world is watching and raving about them, then put aside your cynacism and grow up. Because where Breaking Bad is concerned, you’d be missing out.

Bryan Cranston’s transformation from a mild-mannered chemistry teacher to a dangerous, meth-making super-criminal is one of the greatest examples of character acting we’ve ever witnessed, and he’s got a stonking cast surrounding him to boot.

Gripping, edge-of-your seat television at its finest.
