Thinking you’ve dried up the old Netflix cue when it comes to watching new shows and movies?
Think again, dear reader, even though Hollywood has been closed for a few months due to the Covid-19 epidemic, streaming networks are still releasing new content.
From shows about loving middle school outlets to wild barbecue cooking shows down, there’s new stuff for everyone.
Here are a few suggestions if you’re looking for something new to watch this weekend.
The second season of the upcoming K-Maddy dropped just last week, and could naturally be one of the best TV seasons to be released in 2020. Best-Friend follows seventh-grade Maya and Anna as the show deals with daily horrors. And Middle School Shame, Year 2000.
The catch is that the actresses who play the roles of Maya and Anna are 30-year-old Maya Erskin and Anna Konkle, who also act as the show’s creators. Maya and Anna’s classmates are played by real teenagers, so it’s very funny to see these two grown-up women embodying what it means to be a haunted pre-teen while acting 14-year-olds.
If you’re a millennial who was in middle school or junior high during the mid-90s to mid-late mid-1990s, you’re most strongly associated with the show. Maya and Anna Jonathan Taylor have a crush on Thomas and prefer to talk to each other on their View Throne on a landline phone. They wear butterfly clips in their hair and chokers on their necks. It’s a true explosion of the past, and the show really captivates the awkwardness of pre-teens.
You can stream it on Hulu.
The next day, another new TV show with Ryan Murphy in mind.
The writer and director is approving new shows for Netflix (coming in the near future), much later, and more recently “raached” by the creators of “American Horror Story” and “Gly”.
Co-authored with screenwriter Evan Romsky, “Ratched” is the untold origin story of Mildred Ratchet, a nurse in the book “A Fly over a Puzzle’s Nest”.
Nurse Ratchett is more recognizable than the 1975 film, and is notorious for being one of the most evil characters in cinema history. The actress, who plays Louis Fletcher, a nurse, also won an Oscar for Best Actress for the film.
“Rashed” tries to give us a glimpse of Nurse Ratched’s life before the events of “A Fly on a Cuckoo’s Nest”.
Sarah Paulson, who has worked on countless other projects with Murphy, plays the title character and is incredible in the role.
While the show looks like it could be just another season of Murphy’s other shows, such as “American Horror Story,” which makes the assembled cast for the project, including Sharon Stone and Cynthia Nixon, worth watching. To the end.
You can stream it on Netflix.
Do you need a little mindless entertainment so you can get out of the chaotic world around you? Look no further than Netflix’s latest silly show, “Sing On”.
The Singing Competition show is hosted by actor and singer Titus Burgess and features amateur singing contestants as they try their best to make everyone out-sing during karaoke.
We’ve all embarrassed ourselves on karaoke nights, so it’s easy to relate to the “singers” on the show. One machine judges each singer by how well they sing parts of their song, and depending on the round, a singer is eliminated by the worst singer – or other competitors. The winner is named at the end of each episode.
It sounds like another kind of Netflix competition, “Nile It It”, in which amateur bakers are encouraged to do their best. It’s fun, light-hearted, and sometimes, you’ll probably find yourself singing songs with lyrics. Show.
You can watch it on Netflix.
‘Great British Baking Show’
The tent is back, the tent is back!
The “Great British Baking Show” is a baking competition show that takes place in England (go figure) and features the role of a very good amateur baker taking part in the weekly baking challenges. The show was filmed a few months ago after restrictions were lifted in the United Kingdom, and is currently airing abroad.
While Netflix typically throws one entire season after another at the show premieres, a new episode of “Great British Baking Show” will be released weekly just days after the premiere in the UK.
While the format of the show doesn’t change much, it’s still fun to meet a new group of bakers and see what these amateurs bring to the competition. It’s currently the healthiest reality competition on TV, yet, it’s fun to pick a favorite and original all season.
‘American Barbecue Showdown’
If you’re a fan of the “Great British Baking Show”, then the “American Barbecue Show Down” will be your companion. Ten amateur cooks who specialize in barbecue take part in a series of challenges that will test all their skills when it comes to smoking meat over an open fire.
It doesn’t seem to be worth the challenges of the season when it comes to barbecue, but the show did a really good job of being creative and challenging the cooks. Challenges such as “make a classic combo with two sides” make the chefs their best pork and beef ribs and smoky exotic meats like Venice, crocodile and North American raccoon.
Competitors like Bakers on “Great British Back Off” are super supporters of each other, so it’s a nice light hearted watch if you enjoy cooking competition shows.
You can watch it on Netflix.
