5 good Netflix shows to watch this weekend

1. American Horror Story: 1984

New episodes of this wildly popular series just released, fittingly, on Friday, Nov. 13. American Horror Story just released its ninth season on the streaming service.

This season pays homage to 80s slasher films, most obviously the Friday the 13th series of films. As with many 80s horror films, AHS 1884 sees a group of youths who become counselors at a camp with a history of people being murdered there.

2. The Crown 

The Crown season 4 is coming to Netflix on Sunday, Nov. 15.

There has been so much talk about the season four release and the fifth season casting that it is hard to keep up with what we will see in the fourth season.

Olivia Colman will reign as The Queen this season, which will be her last in the role. Helena Bonham Carter is back as Princess Margaret, Tobias Menzies will play Prince Philip, Josh O’Connor will be Prince Charles and Emerald Fennell will again play Camilla Parker Bowles.

Exciting new characters, Princess Diana (Emma Corrin) and Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher (Gillian Anderson), are the most talked-about additions to this season.

This season will take us from 1979-1990. The Crown will have two more seasons before the series ends.

3. Dash and Lily

This series is based on the YA series of books called Dash and Lily’s Book of  Dares by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn. Dash and Lily, the series has made quite an impression with viewers.

It is currently sitting at No. 2 on Netflix’s top 10 list. It was just released earlier this week.

Midori Francis plays Lily, and Austin Abrams plays Dash. The two correspond via a red notebook that Lily leaves in a bookstore and Dash is the lucky one to find it. They are two completely different individuals but come together with a common bond of a love of books. In the notebook, they share their hopes, dreams, desires and for some fun, dares that the ready must complete.

This is a light and fun holiday-themed series that will give you an escape from the real world for a bit.

4. The Liberator

This animated war drama will be something very different from what you are used to watching on Netflix. The Liberator consists of four episodes that are all currently available to stream and is geared towards adults.

This is another Netflix series based on a book, titled The Liberator: One World War II Soldier’s 500-day Odyssey by best-selling author Alex Kershaw. The story is based on a true-life story of Felix “Shotgun” Sparks (Bradley James), who was a member of the 157th Infantry Battalion. The “Thunderbirds,” as they were known, would go on to liberate the Dachau concentration camp and endure some of the worst battles of the war.

This film is the first film produced by Trioscope and used a new hybrid animation technology.

5. Trial 4

This true-crime limited series is now available on Netflix. Trial 4 is a documentary that tells the story of Sean K. Ellis.

When Ellis was a teenager, he was convicted of the murder of a Boston police officer, John Mulligan. This series documents the events leading up to Ellis’ fourth trial for a crime he says he didn’t commit.

This true-crime series is one you don’t want to miss.

Have a great weekend and enjoy some downtime watching some of Netflix’s amazing choices.
