TV and Streaming – Friday 2nd April 2021

Morning! It’s Good Friday and so that only means one thing: lots and lots of movies on TV. In fact, today also includes two big movies hitting the streaming services that you have to pay for. One is an Oscar-nominated drama, the other is a big, loud blockbuster that has been languishing around for almost a year, looking for a cinema to open in. Whatever you decide to watch, I hope you have a great Friday 2nd April.

Stay safe, look after yourself and Happy Easter!
