Another week has passed and, in case you missed our social media feeds, we’re here to give you the run down on this week’s additions just in time for your weekend binge sessions. Here we will give you our top picks as well as a full list of everything added to the streaming service in the last week. So here are our top picks from this week’s additions on Netflix UK:
As we hit the middle of the month slump there haven’t been loads of additions but we still have some great new films and TV shows! The most popular addition this week has been the Chinese period action film Shadow which never got a UK cinema release. This visually stunning movie tells the story of a figure with a rare power who spins a web of intrigue that entangles a king’s court and is set during a time where three kingdoms are battling for control of a walled city. Other popular films this week include the supernatural thriller The Prodigy which tells of a young mother who suspects something malevolent is at play when her talented son suddenly starts behaving differently; Deadcon is another horror film where a group of popular, social media influencers get lured by an evil spirit while at a festival; finally for films this week we have the independent crime/action film The Brave which follows a team of elite cops in Albania that are trying to take down a drug-lord who threatens the country’s economy and, thus, their potential entry into the EU.
For TV this week we have a number of new Netflix Original series including season 6 the comedy series Grace and Frankie which follows two older women as they bond when their husbands leave them for each other. The Emmy-nominated show will return for its 7th, and final, series next year. Sex Education returns today too and continues with the life of awkward teenager Otis and his sex-therapist mum. And, finally for TV is a new Dutch horror series Ares about a college student who joins an exclusive society in Amsterdam unaware of the horrifying secrets it holds.
If documentaries are more your thing then you may be interested in Betty White: First Lady of Television which documents the long career of actress and television producer Betty White – star of “Golden Girls”. Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez is a limited series that looks into the mind of NFL footballer Aaron Hernandez as he went from a star to a convicted killer. For something more lighthearted we have a new version of the comedy baking show Nailed It! this time with the German series. In Nailed It! Germany home cooks try to create amazing cakes, often with hilarious results, with the chance to win €5,000.
For the younger viewers this week we have the animated comedy Minions which tells the history of the banana-loving critters through the years before they came to assist Gru. For family friendly TV series we have the anime show Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts which follows a young girl traveling through a world of mutant animals while trying to find her way home. The Healing Powers of Dude is a new Original series about a boy with social anxiety who uses a small dog called Dude as emotional support.
