Maxime Germain likes to get his mind off training with the Big Bang Theory, an American sitcom comedy in which physicists Leonard and Sheldon find their nerd-centric social circle with pals Howard and Raj expanding when aspiring actress Penny moves in next door.
"It's the best show because it's endless, filled with comedy and a fantastic mix of characters. I recommend it because it takes your mind off from training!"
Jakub Stvrtecky got hooked on Peaky Blinders, a drama series about a notorious gang in 1919 Birmingham, England, led by the fierce Tommy Shelby, a crime boss set on moving up in the world no matter the cost.
"I must say Peaky Blinders. I like how Tommy Shelby (the lead character) is always one step ahead of his enemies."
Jaakko Ranta is being entertained by Blacklist, a thriller series where - after turning himself in - a brilliant fugitive, portrayed by James Spader, offers to help the FBI bag other baddies, but only if rookie profiler Elizabeth Keen is his partner.
"I think Blacklist is very entertaining: the storyline evolves as the show goes on, which makes it surprising. Anticipating the show is hard, and that pulls you toward concentrating on the little details. Also, the acting is spot on, and the relationships between the characters add more excitement to it!"
At least this is what both Vincent Bonacci and Lena Haecki-Gross think. Brooklyn 99 is a comedy about brilliant but immature Brooklyn detective Jake Peralta: he must learn to follow the rules and be a team player when his squad gets an exacting new captain.
"It is a funny show that I can watch whenever and really enjoy," Haecki-Gross concluded.
The biathletes also recommended the following series:
Friends (sitcom that needs no introduction)
Star Wars (simply epic)
The Office (a hit comedy chronicles the foibles of disgruntled office workers at the Dunder Mifflin paper company)
Money Heist (about the professor who recruits a young female robber and seven other criminals for a grand heist, targeting the Royal Mint of Spain)
The Lincoln Lawyer (law drama)
Game of Thrones (you know it)
Bridgerton (intrigues in the Regency era in London)
Inbetweeners (The exploits of four friends, who are socially only marginally above what one of them calls "the freaks)
What We Do in the Shadows (A film crew is allowed into the lives of some vampires who are part of the secret society of supernatural beings such as witches, zombies and werewolves)
Ted Lasso (AppleTV series about an American football coach who finds himself in charge of an English football club)
The Good Place (a sitcom about a self-absorbed Eleanor Shellstrop, who by error arrives at the Good place after her death - determined to stay, she tries to become a better person).
