What We’re Watching: Not-so-happy families edition

From crime families to chosen family, to recommendations from far away siblings, this month’s screen picks are shaped by the people we find ourselves connected to - whether we like them or not.

In a period when so many of us Victorians are separated from family by 5 kilometres, quarantine, or state or international borders, it’s safe to say family is on our minds. So in this month’s rendition of What We’re Watching, we’re giving our relatives their dues.

Whether it’s a high-budget drama about fictional familial elites, a game shared between separated siblings, or a show that confronts a difficult inheritance, these recommendations all revolve around the connections that exist between people, either on or through the screen.
