Sex Education season 4

WATCH! The highly anticipated final season of Sex Education is now available to stream. Otis and the gang begin their first day at Cavendish Sixth Form College after the closure of Moordale Secondary and find the new institution quite a culture shock. Things are drastically different from what they are used to, and everyone has to make adjustments. Don’t miss the final chapter of Sex Education. 

Love is Blind season 5

SKIP! The fifth season of Love is Blind will release new episodes weekly, with two premiering on September 22, three more on the 29, two more on October 6, and the final wedding episode on October 13. This series brings singles together to look for love and are engaged without ever meeting their new companion face to face. If you are a huge fan of reality series, you will likely enjoy this one. Otherwise, you can skip it.

Band of Brothers

WATCH! The highly acclaimed HBO series Band of Brothers is streaming on Netflix. This series, created by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks, is a true account of the Easy Company, who bravely served their country during WWII. Based on the non-fiction work by historian Stephen E. Ambrose, this series uses historical events, interviews with survivors, and journals and letters written by the soldiers to tell their stories. Don’t miss the companion series, The Pacific, also streaming on Netflix.

Hard Broken

SKIP! The new Lebanese thriller Hard Broken follows a tight-knit group of friends who, after one of their members is tragically murdered, find their lives will never be the same. As officials investigate the murder, the friend group’s secrets, betrayals, and secret romances are unveiled, creating even more upheaval in their lives. Although the story may seem interesting, the execution falls short. You can skip this one.

Murdaugh Murders: A Southern Scandal season 2

WATCH! Scandals are like a trainwreck; you can’t look away. Enter Murdaugh Murders: A Southern Scandal season 2. This heartbreaking docuseries takes a deep dive into the murders of Maggie and her son Paul.
