The COSMO team has been hard at work self-isolating and working from home in order to stop the spread of the coronavirus in South Africa. Social distancing is a great way to keep those around us, especially the vulnerable safe during this difficult time.
But because this also an apt time to catch up on some great TV shows, we asked the team to share what they are watching so we can spread the good news. Here are some of our faves:
Fashion Editor, Clare Robertson is loving Money Heist, a Spanish series about a criminal mastermind called ‘The Professor’ who attempts to pull off the biggest heist in recorded history. He recruits eight people with certain abilities who have nothing to lose to help him print billions of euros in the Royal Mint of Spain. You know Oceans 11 vibes.
2. Don’t F**k With Cats: Hunting an Internet Killer
Clare is also loving the true-crime documentary series, Don’t F**k With Cats. When a video is posted online of a mysterious figure in a green hoodie killing two kittens and the internet went crazy. The videos get increasingly worse with every click until the final video is uploaded and the victim is human.
3. The Morning Show
Fashion director, Cleo Marcopoulos and social media manager, Ashleigh Engel are loving the Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, The Morning Show. It is an inside look at the main players at a US morning show and what happens when it is hit by a sex scandal.

Beauty and lifestyle writer, Helen Wallace, is a big fan of RuPaul’s Drag Race. The reality show has a new group of 14 queens competing for the title of America’s Next Drag Superstar. Watch as the contestants battle fierce challenges, and the absolute shade, it’s entertaining AF.
