THURSDAY

Rhythm + flow France

French rappers freestyle against each other in this imported reality show with a €100,000 prize for the top champion. There has always been an appetite for a series of rap battle contests – this is a hole in the space of reality – and this is one of the first attempts to fill it.

Netflix

FRIDAY

The man from Toronto

Netflix’s latest film is about a case of mistaken identity where a failed salesperson is forced to team up with a killer after they are mistaken for each other on Airbnb. It’s an all-star cast with Kevin Hart as the salesman and Woody Harrelson as the killer known as the “Man from Toronto”.

Netflix

Get up

This film chronicles the rise of the Antetokounmpo brothers and their journey in the NBA, including how Giannis (played by Uche Agada) and Thanasis (Ral Agada) found out about the game while their parents struggled to survive and provide their children in Greece. After his abilities were finally discovered by an agent, Giannis entered the NBA draft in 2013, becoming the league’s most valuable player in 2019 and 2020. He also led the Milwaukee Bucks to their first championship.

Netflix

Chloe

This psychological thriller follows Becky Green (Erin Doherty) who is obsessed with stalking her childhood friend Chloe Fairborn (Poppy Gilbert). Becky begins by following Chloe’s social media successes, becoming increasingly jealous of her husband, friends, and her friend’s popularity. Although the plot sounds predictable and is very similar to The Single White Woman, it has a lot of twists and turns. Must see.

man vs bee

“Mr. Bean” fights bees and Rowan Atkinson, who plays a homeless man-turned-nurse, confronts insects in this comedy series.

Netflix

Mining

In this new comedy series, Saturday Night Live star Maya Rudolph plays Molly Novak, the wife with it all.

Apple TV Plus

the one that got away

This new reality show gives six lonely people a chance to look back before they can move on in search of love. Been there, done it, right? Wrong. The Turn allows participants to explore missed connections as people from their past enter through the “Portal” to see if there is still a spark left to ignite. The sheer cheesiness of the premise promises awkward fun, and that’s what we’re here for. Singer Betty Who leads.

Money Heist: Korea Unified Economic Zone

For those still mourning the loss of Paper House (a Spanish crime drama that ended last year), a spin-off has finally arrived. This South Korean version features a hostage crisis that also involves a strategist in charge of a group of criminals with different skill sets. The best part is that these robbers are inspired by their Spanish counterparts.

Netflix

SUNDAY

Western world

If you’ve ever felt like the show is smarter than you, it might be Westworld. While the twists and turns of the drama about the dawn of artificial consciousness and new life on Earth were fantastic in the first season, the storylines get more and more convoluted. However, the Emmy-winning series is still featured on many calendars. Let’s hope you don’t have to spend too much time analyzing every episode of this fourth season.
