WandaVision seems to have taken over the world and I'm all for it


This week, Mandalorian star Gina Carano was fired by LucasFilm and the new trailer for The Falcon and The Winter Solider had millions of Marvel fans screaming with excitement. Here's what I've been loving in the last seven days:


Superstore


You should know by now that I'm a sucker for a sitcom and I wish I had found this one sooner. This NBC creation stars America Ferrera and Ben Feldman, who play key roles within a group of employees at a fictional "big-box store" (like Walmart) called "Cloud 9". Among a quirky family of chucklesome characters, each episode follows the day-to-day duties of the Cloud 9 workforce like having to deal with kooky customers and tackling problems behind the scenes. The entire cast is completely charming and the show does well to explore societal themes and issues within the workplace. Superstore grows with confidence after every episode and is a stand-out within a large group of network comedies. The series is currently in its sixth and final season (*cries*) but the current tally of 107 episodes is a plentiful number and provides lots of laughs and entertainment. You can watch Superstore on Netflix.

Taskmaster


This comedy game show screams British culture at its finest. Taskmaster was first created in 2010 by British comedian Alex Horne during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and was adapted for television five years later. It stars comedian and actor Greg Davies as the inevitable role of the Taskmaster, who sets comedic and outlandish tasks to five contestants each series (these contestants are usually British comedians). The absolute insanity of the show is what makes it so enjoyable, and the brilliant banter between the contestants and Davies is hysterical and infectious, no matter what series you are watching. Not only is the series a raging success in the UK, but it has also grown to an international level, with versions of the programme being made in Belgium, Sweden, Spain, Denmark, Norway and New Zealand. Taskmaster is the perfect escape and supplies 60 minutes of silliness and belly laughs. You can watch Taskmaster on All4.
