5 must-watch Netflix movies and shows this week

This list is in release date order. It’s too hard to compare the genres.

After We Fell

The first release of the week is the steamy romance that many have been waiting for. After We Fell is the third movie in the franchise, bringing us a story that could see Tessa and Hardin break up.

Tessa is heading to Seattle after college, but Hardin expected them to move to London. Will he give up his dreams for her, or will he force her to move with him?

Watch the movie on Monday, Jan. 17.

Heavenly Bites: Mexico

The next option is a series that is great for fans of the likes of The Great British Baking ShowHeavenly Bites: Mexico will bring us the great cultural culinary treats, including the traditions behind them. The downside is that it’s just a documentary and not a full series.

You’ll be able to add another set of recipes to your book. Even if you’re not planning on adding them, you’ll understand more of the traditions when your friends try to make them.

Watch the cooking documentary on Wednesday, Jan. 19.
