Father’s Day is just around the corner, which you have more than likely forgotten about. Here are some ideas of TV shows you can watch with your dad while having a few beers and conversation. This is also a friendly reminder to make sure you have got him a present!
Jack Whitehall: Travels with my Father
Travels with my father is the perfect TV series to watch this Father’s Day. The Netflix series currently has two seasons and follows the hilarious travel Journeys of comedian Jack Whitehall and his father Michael.
In season one, Jack forces his incredible posh father, Michael, to go on a travelling adventure through South East Asia, something Michael’s nightmares are made of. In season two Michael gets revenge on Jack and takes him on a historical journey through Europe.
The relationship between Jack and his father really make this series, with the pair having banter, funny arguments and relatable father and son/daughter time.
Jack Whitehall: Travels with my Father is available on Netflix.
Friday Night Dinner
Friday Night Dinner is a classic family-oriented TV show that contains a strange dad, a frantic mother and two trouble causing brothers, along with the weirdest neighbour. The show has some incredibly funny and odd scenarios, yet all have parts, which the whole family can relate to.
The relationship between the two brother’s and their father is hysterical and will definitely have both you and your dad in tears!
Friday Night Dinner is currently on season five, you don’t have to start from season one, but the first three seasons are definitely funnier than the latest.
Friday Night Dinner is available on Channel 4 on demand.
Bradley Walsh & Son: Breaking Dad
Another father and son travel show, that is worth a watch this Father’s day. Bradley Walsh & Son: Breaking Dad, is a play on words of the popular series Breaking Bad, and follows famous presenter Bradley Walsh, who is taken on an adventure by his son Barney.
Barney is worried that his father is a little bit stuck in his own ways and hopes the exhilarating adventure they both take will open his eyes and make him live a little!
Breaking Dad is available on ITV Hub.
The Grand Tour
Everyone knows boys love their toys! So why not watch The Grand Tour containing everything dads love – cars, banter, and POWER!
The Grand Tour is the newer show the Top Gear trio Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May moved to after they exited Top Gear. Containing the same, undoubtedly funny relationship the three have, more epic car scenes, bigger explosions, and crazier adventures, The Grand Tour is definitely a show you and your father will have a great time watching.
The series is available on Amazon Prime Video, you can start a free trial here to make the most of the series this father’s day.
Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan
CIA. Guns and explosions. Ex-marine turned agent. What more could a father want to watch? Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan follows a deadly game of cat and mouse with a terrorist planning a massive attack on the US.
Jack Ryan will keep you both on the edge of your seat and will have your dad pretending he is some kind of ex-marine after you have finished the series. Although we’re not quite sure if inspiring your dad that much is a good idea.
Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan is available on Amazon Prime. The series is on season one, with season two currently in the making.
Rick & Morty
It might be likely that your dad hasn’t seen Rick & Morty, or even heard of it! Why not show him this laugh-out-loud animated series. If your dad is into his Sci-Fi stuff, then he is bound to love it.
The series follows the Smith family, but more specifically teen Morty and his grandpa Rick. Rick has one of the best brains in the whole universe and often needs support with his work and adventures through time and space, so brings Morty along with him.
The bond Rick and Morty have is amusing and will hopefully have you and your dad bonding a lot more too!
We hope you have a great Father’s Day this year, having some good bonding time and creating memories that will be cherished for a lifetime. Oh and don’t forget the present!
