Best Netflix shows to watch and skip this weekend, Jan. 20

This week’s recommendations range from a spinoff to a series about WWI to a new anime adaptation.

That ’90s Show season 1

Watch. Fans of That 70’s Show have been counting down to the Jan. 19 release of the sequel, That ’90s Show. After one day, the series is already at the number one spot on the Netflix Top 10 shows list. The series brings back Kitty (Debra Jo Rupp) and Red (Kurtwood Smith) Forman, now grandparents, as they invite their granddaughter Leia (Callie Haverda) and her friends into their basement, made famous by her father, Eric (Topher Grace) and his friends.

Other returning actors include Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, Laura Prepon, and Wilmer Valderrama.

Bake Squad

Skip. The second season of Bake Squad was released on Jan. 20. While this take on a baking series does have its merits, it took away the elimination element so popular in other cooking and baking shows. Fans tune in to these series for the competition’s thrill and the elimination’s intensity. Check out another Netflix original, Pressure Cooker, if you want an intense cooking show.

Women at War

Watch. The new series Women at War, released on Jan. 20, is set in France in 1914 during WWI. The series focuses on four women and the consequences of war at home while the men leave for the frontlines to battle the advancing Germans. Women at War shows a painful look at war and how it affects those in battle and those who were left behind.

Bling Empire: New York

Skip. Bling Empire, which focused on the lifestyles of wealthy Asian Americans living in LA, has a spinoff that heads to the east coast. Bling Empire: New York sets up the same premise as the original, but it’s a lot of the same things we’ve already seen. It does have a fantastic backdrop of NYC and its glory, but as a reality series, it is a lot of what has already been seen.

Junji Ito Maniac: Japanese Tales of the Macabre

Watch. Netflix released its newest addition to the long list of anime series on Jan. 20. Junji Ito Maniac: Japanese Tales of the Macabre is an animated adaptation of 20 of Junji’s most popular and creepiest tales. The series will delight horror fans as these stories focus on the theme of madness.
