It’s a new week, and you’re probably looking for something good to watch on Netflix. There are plenty of great Netflix movies and shows from Feb. 14 to 20.

Netflix has an excellent list of releases throughout this week. In fact, the overall list looks pretty overwhelming. It can be hard to pick, that feeling of FOMO coming through.

The good news is we’re here to help. We’ve picked out five top releases, covering all sorts of preferences and interests. Whether you want comedy, horror, or something in between, there is something for you.

5 must-watch Netflix movies and shows this week

We’re doing the list of Netflix movies and shows to watch in release date order. Not only will it help you pick what you’re watching easier, but it also means we’re not trying to compare the many different genres on the list this week.

Fishbowl Wives Season 1

The first release is a Japanese series based on a manga by Kurosawa R. It sounds perfect for those who love the likes of Why Women Kill, although there’s not necessarily any killing happening in the series.

Fishbowl Wives follows six women. They’re all in unhappy marriages, and they need to figure out what they can do about it. All of them decide that infidelity is the way to go, but what happens when they get too deep into cheating?

The full series is available on Monday, Feb. 14. It’s the perfect anti-Valentine’s Day series.

Forgive Us Our Trespasses

We’re getting to a more serious topic here. Forgive Us Our Trespasses is set in 1930s German. You can probably guess where this is going, especially when I say it focuses on a disabled boy.

He’s a farm boy who just wants to live the best life that he can. However, when Hitler enacts the Aktion T4 program, his life is immediately put at risk. Nazi soldiers pursue him legally obliged to euthanize anyone with a disability.

Watch the movie on Thursday, Feb. 17.

Wu Assassins: Fistful of Vengeance

Are you a fan of Wu Assassins? We’re still waiting to hear about the future of the series, but there is a feature movie that you can watch while waiting. This could be a sign of the future of the series, but we’ll keep an open mind until we see how the movie ends.

Wu Assassins: Fistful of Vengenace picks up after the events of the first season finale. Jen is dead, and the Queen of the Bangkok Underworld is in town. Was she the one responsible for Jenny’s murder? That’s something our group of assassins will want to work out.

Check out the movie on Thursday, Feb. 17.

Space Force Season 2

If you loved the first season of Steve Carell’s parody of the real Space Force program, you’ll be happy to hear that the second season is almost here. It drops at the end of the week, and it really is one of the Netflix movies and shows to watch.

There was a lot going on in the world of Space Force at the end of the season. The biggest situation to deal with was Naird on his way to a potential court-martial. This could see the whole project shut down, and the rest of the team needs to prove what they’re worth.

Check out the entire season on Friday, Feb. 18.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre

For those who are more in the mood for horror, there is a movie that we may or may not need. It’s time for another Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie. Who doesn’t love Leatherface?

This time, we’ll see a group of teens head out with a passion to start a new business. This lands them in Leatherface territory, and we know that he never likes to be disturbed. It’s not clear yet how or where this fits into the main story timeline, so you’ll want to watch the movie for those answers.

Check out the horror movies on Friday, Feb. 18.
