Coronavirus. CoVid-19. Pandemic. Social Distancing. Self-Isolation. Quarantine. Flatten the Curve. Stop the Spread. Stay the F Home. These words and phrases are flooding our everyday lives at home, at work, and as we go down the rabbit hole on social media.

If you’re looking for some escapist TV and movies during self-isolation, we’ve rounded up some of the best Damian-filled films and shows to binge, stream, or watch OnDemand. Let’s get started.

Homeland – Find it on Amazon Prime, Hulu, or Showtime OnDemand. Arguably one of the best television series with masterclass acting and storytelling.

“The Forsyte Saga”

The guy has been a godsend to TV, with his work on “Homeland,” “Billions,” “Wolf Hall,” “Band of Brothers,” and a fine network procedural called “Life,” on which he played a cop released from prison on DNA evidence. I have a particular fondness for his work on “The Forsyte Saga,” a 2002-03 adaptation of John Galsworthy’s novels and a remake of a seminal late-1960s PBS series. It’s an engrossing literary soap about a wealthy family torn between passion and Victorian repression, with Lewis’s Soames Forsyte as the upholder of the latter. Lewis is ice cold, pale, and pathetic, as Soames clings to his Victorian delusions, stuffing his emotions down, his eyes a brutish blue. As his unloving wife, Irene, Gina McKee is perfection.
