Spotlight on TV shows

Institute members recommend their favourite shows to watch during this time of social distancing

The Ronda Rousey Story: Through My Father’s Eyes 

“I recommend the Netflix documentary The Ronda Rousey Story: Through My Father’s Eyes. Ronda is a famous Ultimate Fighting Championship fighter and has been a skilled judo fighter since her teenage years. This documentary captures her struggles and triumphs over her career. It is definitely worth watching, even if you aren’t a fan of mixed martial arts,” says Wong.

Gordon Ramsay 

“I’ve been cooking and experimenting with new recipes featured on Gordon Ramsay’s YouTube channel. His channel is full of videos showing him cooking quick and simple dishes that are easy to follow and also very tasty and healthy,” Chun says. “The ingredients he uses are typical kitchen staples, allowing anybody to stir up a quick and healthy lunch or dinner in less than 30 minutes. Working from home has definitely proven to be a challenge for all of Hong Kong, so these recipes have given me something to look forward to. These videos have also inspired me to look out for different ingredients while making my grocery runs.”

Money Heist 

“I have been watching one of Netflix’s hit series, Money Heist. As its name suggests, it is about a group of criminals pulling off crazy heists,” says Chan. It is directed by Spanish television producer Álex Pina. The costume worn by the show’s robbers, a red jumpsuit and masks inspired by surrealist artist Salvador Dalí, has been used in real-life political protests in Lebanon, Iraq, France, Puerto Rico, and Chile. “The show is in Spanish, so I suggest watching it in its original language for the full experience. Highly recommend this one!” adds Chan.
