In an example of perfect timing, the second season of Bluey, everyone’s favourite kids show, is out now just in time for your self-isolation or working from home reality. Here’s where to watch it in Australia.
In times of crisis, the best thing you can do is chuck on a light-hearted show and forget about the woes of the world. Bluey is the perfect show for that. It’s also great if you’re stuck at home with kids ” whether they’re your own or someone else’s.
If you haven’t haven’t watched it yet, Bluey follows the adventures of a six-year-old Blue Heeler ‘puppy’ and each episode, of which there are now 104, lasts for a sweet and short seven minutes.
The reason it’s so popular globally, apart from being a loveable Australian kids show, is that it deals with more complex issues such as fatherhood, jealousy and being working class in Australia. Because of this, it’s often described as an example of social realism ” art that looks at working class families and critiques the power structures that create them.
But aside from all that, it’s just really wholesome to watch.
