What are we watching this week?

The White Lotus


We may have been late to the party but last week we binged; maybe even devoured, Hawaii based Season 1 of high budget, twisty drama 'The White Lotus' in time for the release on Sky Atlantic of Season 2.


The new episodes are set against the exquisite backdrop of the eponymous Sicilian cliff-side 5-star hotel; undeniably oozing the glamour of Fellini's La Dolce Vita at every turn. Whilst we wouldn't call the characters in either season likeable​ we certainly enjoy the toe curlingly uncomfortable discussions their dark secrets and twisted truths force to the sun-drenched fore.


Waiting each week for a new episode to be released is giving us noughties vibes, not to mention a starring role for 'Stiffler's Mom' (the unparalleled Jennifer Coolidge in all her pouty glory). We're obsessed with the dreamy vistas, glossy budget and pitch perfect cast.


A perfect tonic to the dark evenings if you ask us.
