Wightfibre’s top viewing picks for February comprises of laughs, zombies, revenge, killers and comedy. Here are our top four…


Korean filmmakers know how to freak out viewers with panache, as you’ll know if you saw Oldboy (available to rent on Amazon Video. Medieval zombie apocalypse thriller Kingdom covers very different territory but it’s just as gripping and very, very dark.

Despite challenging viewers with subtitles, Netflix is so confident about Kingdom that it’s commissioned a second season before anyone’s had a chance to see the first. Watch the latest trailer for free on Netflix.

Tin Star

Sky’s chilly revenge thriller stars Tim Roth as an alcoholic British copper who moves his family to the Canadian Rockies to become a small-town police chief.

Season 1 saw this Fargo-esque setting descend into tragedy, leaving Roth’s Jim Worth – and his booze-induced alter-ego – mired in chaos. Tin Star’s first season amassed legions of fans when it aired recently on Channel 4.

You can watch Season 1 for free on C4’s All 4 streaming service or without the ads on Now TV.

Season 2 will also air on C4 eventually (probably autumn 2019) but for now, the only place to watch it online is Now TV.

Conversation With A Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes

True crime fans have yet another treat in store from Netflix. Four-part series Conversations with A Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes delves “inside the mind of the infamous serial killer” via previously unheard death row interviews with Bundy (pictured), who confessed to the murder of 30 women in the 1970s.

He was executed 30 years ago last month. The series will also explore the media frenzy around his trial, and his marriage to Carole Ann Boone, who he wed in court. Watch all four episodes on Netflix.

Ron and Romesh VS

Friends, comedians and countrymen Rob Beckett and Romesh Ranganathan scored a knock-out when they met heavyweight champ Anthony Joshua for Sky 1 last April.

They’re now back for a five-part series, losing in style against a new batch of sport and entertainment idols. We’re promised singing tips from Shania Twain, face-offs with NFL stars and a race against Usain Bolt. Episodes air on Sky 1 every Friday, and you can stream the fun live and on-demand via Now TV.
