4. Land Girls Season 3

You watched the first two seasons during April 2020. Now it’s time to catch up on the third season. Land Girls Season 3 is an excellent continuation of the work of the women during World War II.

During the third season, Hoxley Manor becomes a military hospital. This wasn’t all that uncommon, but it certainly has a knock-on effect on the personalities and lives of the women. Meanwhile, new girl, Iris, arrives to help.

All five episodes will be available at once on May 4.

3. Porterhouse Blue

Only Fools and Horses fans will need to check out Porterhouse Blue. David Jason leads the cast in this four-part adaptation of the comic novel by Tom Sharpe. Porterhouse is a fictional college in Cambridge, known for ancient traditions and the dismal academic standards of the students.

Ian Richardson is the new headmaster of the college after the original one dies. However, he’s not quite a headmaster and is, instead, a politician who wants to break the six centuries of tradition and bring the college into the modern-day. Yes, it is as ridiculous as it sounds but it’s classic 1987 British comedy.

All four episodes are available from May 4, 2020.
