FAIR DINKUM: Aussie shows you need to put on your streaming list

Even with spring on the horizon, we are still seeing our fair share of rainy days. Rainy days for you, me, and everyone else currently existing in 2019, means a *insert your favourite streaming service here* binge.

We chat a lot about classic TV shows, or movies that you should feast your eyes on in one fell swoop, but this week we thought we would bring the focus a little closer to home. Here are top five Aussie TV series you should binge on this week. Bloody fair dinkum shrimp on the barbie type like ya know?

Black Comedy – Stan

If you’ve yet to catch this amazing series, this weekend is your perfect chance. It’s witty, hilarious and unapologetic comedy from some of the best Australian actors in the biz. The sketch show also shines a light on what it means to be black in contemporary Australia. 

Wentworth – Foxtel

A show which technically started out as a remake of the iconic Prisoner, has grown into something utterly spectacular. If you can think of Orange is the New Black as candy-coated American comedy, as far as prison shows go Wentworth is tough and unrelenting. And will have you on the edge of your seat. 

McLeod’s Daughters – Stan

It will take some time to find your heart and come back hommmmeeeee obviously I’m not the only one who can hear the theme song as soon as you even think about McLeod’s daughters, amirite? Classic Aussie drama at its best. Maybe it’s time you took a trip back to the farm?

Underbelly – Stan

If Wentworth doesn’t scratch your Aussie crime itch then surely Underbelly will. With an abundance of seasons to choose from, this series is sure to keep you going for at least a little while. Also, it’s kind of chilling to know that it’s all based around fact, or so they say anyway. 

Please Like Me – Netflix

Australian comedy? Yes please. Lead by comedian Josh Thomas, this series will make you laugh, make you cry, and most importantly, keep you entertained for an entire weekend. It’s the dream really.
