During Lockdown III: The Crappening, you may find yourself bored and in need of some light entertainment to distract you from the heavy burden of ‘these unprecedented times’ – something to guide you towards the light at the end of the tunnel as we draw nearer to that fabled day in June.

To top it all off the programme is hosted by the one and only NICOLAS CAGE. It’s crazy that it took until 2021 for this show to exist, but Netflix has knocked it out of the park. It’s glorious and well worth spending an afternoon bingeing.
I… swear on it.
