Check out some great Netflix shows to watch this weekend

Beckham limited series

WATCH! The new four-part docuseries Beckham is an in-depth look at the life of global football star David Beckham. Everyone knows the name Beckham, whether a football fan or not, but who he is remains a mystery until now. The series examines his life from humble beginnings, his determination to be a winner, and the challenge of balancing ambition, love, and family. Watch as his wife, Victoria, family, friends, and teammates discuss the life of David Beckham.

The Great British Baking Show season

SKIP! The eleventh season of The Great British Baking Show began rolling out new episodes on Netflix on Sept. 29, with additional episodes added in weekly installments. Returning host Noel Fielding is joined by new host Matt Lucas and returning judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith this season. Filmed during the pandemic, the cast and crew resided in a self-contained biosphere at the Down Hall Hotel. This season will surely please, as this baking show is wildly popular. If you are content with watching weekly episodes, go right ahead; otherwise, skip it until Dec. 1, when the entire season will be available.

Everything Now season 1

WATCH! The Netflix original series Everything Now is available, and if you need a new teen drama in your life, this is it. Starring A24’sTalk to Me actress Sophie Wilde as Mia, the series follows her release from rehab, where she was able to rebuild her life after a long recovery from an eating disorder. She creates a bucket list of things to do now that she can resume her regular life, where her friends have already experienced many items on her list. Will she find what she wants in a world of dating, parties, and first kisses? Or, will she discover that not everything can be planned out as she hoped?

Super Pumped: The Battle for Uber

SKIP! Super Pumped: The Battle for Uber is a drama series based on the book by Mike Isaac. This is a dramatization of the ride-share company Uber told from CEO Travis Kalanick’s (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) point of view. The story follows the highs and then lows of Kalanick’s career. The series has received less than favorable reviews despite the cast containing some great talent, including Kyle Chandler, Elizabeth Shue, Uma Thurman, Frank Azaria, and Rob Morrow, with narration by Quentin Tarantino. Skip this one, as it celebrates the tech bros in a day when not many want to celebrate them.

Lupin part 3

WATCH! The third installment of the critically acclaimed Lupin is now available to stream. The story follows Assane Diop (Omar Sy), a professional thief orphaned as a teenager when his father died by suicide after imprisonment for a crime he didn’t commit. Assane then sets out to avenge the powerful Pelegrini family who framed his father. Years ago, he was inspired by the “gentleman thief” Arsène Lupin and honed his thievery, subterfuge, and disguise skills, which he now uses to take down the family who ruined his life.

Have a great weekend, and check out all the fantastic Netflix shows!
