But things get complicated when they are unfairly served an eviction notice by the authorities which the family decides to fight.

5. Bo Burnham: Inside – Netflix
I saw this Netflix comedy special just a few days ago and cannot stress how much of an enjoyable experience it was. Shooting a comedy special without an audience is always tricky, you never know whether the jokes will land or not, but there isn’t any such problem with Bo Burnham. Simply because he doesn’t care. This special will take you on his gradual descent into madness as he grooves on songs from sexting to finding the meaning of the world and even Jeff Bezos all while being locked up inside his house. An absolute Pandemic-era showpiece.
