Resident Evil (Netflix)

Attention zombie fans: After countless live-action movie adaptations, the legendary Resident Evil video game series is getting the TV treatment on Netflix this weekend.

Set in the year 2036, this eight-part series, called Resident Evil, follows a troubled young woman, Jade Wesker (Ella Balinska), as she struggles to survive in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by infected creatures. Lance Reddick (The Wire) also plays Dr. Albert Wesker, Jade's father and big boss of the Umbrella Corporation, also known as the most powerful organization left on Earth.

If you've ever played a Resident Evil game or watched any of the franchise's countless film adaptations, you'll know what to expect from this one: Reviewers described it as "eight hours of crazy, blood-soaked, zombie fun," which is (probably) ) a compliment.

Now available to stream on Netflix.

(*7*)The trial (HBO Max)

Nathan Fielder's Comedy Central series Nathan for You became something of a cult classic after its relatively quiet premiere in 2013, and now the titular comic returns to the screen with the six-part docuseries The Rehearsal.

More of an extended social experiment than an actual comedy show, the series follows Fielder as he tries to help ordinary people rehearse an important moment in life by building a simulation of reality around them. It's basically The Truman Show, but those involved have volunteered to take part in the illusion in hopes of perfecting an equivalent real-life event.

Sure, it all sounds completely ridiculous and not particularly entertaining, but The Rehearsal has been almost universally praised for being "uncomfortably funny, deviously moving, and conceptually wacky." The series has yet to air in the UK, although we expect it to premiere on Sky and Now TV in the not too distant future.

Now available to stream on HBO Max.

Persuasion (Netflix)

Everyone loves a good adaptation of a Jane Austen novel, and Netflix decided to jump into the fray this weekend with Carrie Cracknell's Persuasion.

Dakota Johnson leads the cast as Anne Elliot, a young Englishwoman whose personal life (read: romantic life) is turned upside down when a famous sea captain, Frederick Wentworth (Cosmo Jarvis), unexpectedly returns from duty. Henry Golding, Richard E. Grant and Suki Waterhouse also star in the film production.

Unfortunately, Netflix's latest attempt at a period drama has been panned by critics. "Persuasion is an unprecedented disaster," wrote one reviewer (opens in a new tab), while another proclaimed (opens in a new tab) that "everyone involved should be in jail." Oh. Still, could it be fun to see how bad it is?

Now available to stream on Netflix.

Don't Make Me Go (Prime Video)

Road movie fans (and tears), this one is for you.

Now available on Prime Video, Don't Make Me Go stars John Cho (Cowboy Bebop) as a terminally ill father who decides to use what little time he has left to bond with his teenage daughter (Mia Isaac) on a road trip. across the country. trip from California to New Orleans.

Admittedly, that synopsis doesn't sound particularly uplifting, but the film, directed by Hannah Marks and produced by Amazon Studios, has been described by critics as "heartbreaking and uplifting in equal measure." Just make sure you have some tissues handy if you decide to check this one out.

Now available to stream on Prime Video.

What We Do in the Shadows Season 4 (Hulu)

Jemaine Clement's beloved mockumentary horror comedy series (based on the 2014 film of the same name) returns this weekend for its fourth season, continuing the misadventures of several Staten Island vampire roommates.

Series mainstays Kayvan Novak, Matt Berry, Natasia Demetriou, Harvey Guillen, and Mark Proksch return for the 4-episode Season 10, with two more seasons already ordered and in the works for 2023 and 2024, respectively.

New episodes of What We Do in the Shadows will air on FX every Tuesday, with the first two available to stream now, before launching on Hulu the following day. UK viewers, fear not: we hope this one hits BBC iPlayer very soon.

Now available to stream on Hulu in the US.

James May: Our Man in Italy (Prime Video)

In light of the success of Clarkson's Farm (a second season of which is on the way soon), another member of The Grand Tour's popular trio of hosts, James May, is leading his own Prime Video series this weekend.

Spanning six episodes, James May: Our Man in Italy follows the British presenter as he explores the ins and outs of the titular European country. “There will be lots of cheese, culture, cars, beautiful scenery, and more,” according to Amazon, along with, we suspect, plenty of unfortunate diversions.

Reviewers called the series "an adorable meander full of food and wine at Amazon's expense," and given the surprisingly wholesome nature of Clarkson's Farm, we're inclined to recommend this one to anyone in need of an easy watch this weekend.

Now available to stream on Prime Video.
