What’s new on Netflix, Stan, BINGE, Amazon Prime and Disney+

Everything streaming on Netflix, Stan, BINGE, Amazon Prime Video and Disney+ that’s worth your time from October 11-17.


The Baby-Sitter’s Club S2 (11th)

The second season of Netflix’s wholesome, family-friendly gem is here with more adventures in babysitting. Alicia Silverstone also stars as one of the mums!

The Movies That Made us S3 (12th)

The ongoing documentary series about the films that defined our culture returns with more fascinating facts and insights. Expect to learn loads more about the movies you adore.


Convergence: Courage in a Crisis (12th)

Life-affirming, occasionally confronting documentary about the people who regularly put their lives on the line during a crisis. These are nine true stories from the COVID frontlines, and fascinating to watch.

Another Life S2 (14th)

This is the second season of Netty’s sci-fi show that was, frankly, a bit of a mess. However, maybe things will get on track in the second season? Starring Katee Sackhoff, this tale has humanity dealing with an alien threat and occasionally baffling character decisions.

You S3 (15th)

It’s kind of hard to believe this series about a creepy narcissist has moved into its third season and yet here we are. You can expect more of the slightly uncomfortable, edgy drama/thriller you’ve come to know and (sorta?) love.

Nekrotronic (15th)

Funny, gory, scary and strange as hell, Nekrotronic is a wonderful bit of homegrown horror weirdness. Directed by Kiah Roache-Turner (Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead), this neon-hued spookshow stars Monica Bellucci and Ben O’Toole.

The Invisible Man (17th)

Speaking of Aussie directors, make sure to check out the modern remake of The Invisible Man. Starring Elisabeth Moss, this version of the old yarn plays out like a survivor’s tale with superb direction from Leigh Whannell.


Dead Man (11th)

In the mood for something a little different? Check out Jim Jarmusch’s weirdest film (which is saying something!). Slow moving, bleak and shot in moody black and white, Johnny Depp stars in this strange and lyrical tale that’s well worth a look.

Envoy: Shark Cull (12th)

Eye-opening documentary about Australia’s secret shark cull, exposing the fact it does very little to keep people safe and, in fact, just indiscriminately kills a bunch of sharks. Grim stuff even for people who aren’t all that fond of the sea’s toothier denizens.

Boogie Nights (16th)

It’s the classic movie that proves there are no small parts! Starring Mark Wahlberg, this is a sprawling tale about the porn industry in the late 70s, 80s and beyond. Julianne Moore, Burt Reynolds and Heather Graham also star.

Hightown S2 Premiere (17th)

The second season of the tense, intriguing crime drama drops on Stan. The first season was a murder mystery set during an opioid epidemic in Cape Cod. The second season goes to some even darker places.

Happy Birthday Mr. Bean! (12th)

Can you believe Mr. Bean has been a part of our lives since 1990? Well, he has and you damn well better respect it! Show your love of the rubber-faced weirdo by watching this one-off special that celebrates all things Bean.

Clash of the Cover Bands (14th)

It’s a brand new reality TV show about the search for the ultimate cover band. And no, they won’t be filming it in various RSLs around regional Australia, which is where the TRUE TALENT lies. Winners will get a chance to perform on Jimmy Fallon’s show.

Lady Bird (15th)

The Academy Award winning Lady Bird is now available on BINGE to catch if you haven’t seen it yet. Starring Saoirse Ronan, this is actress Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut and a pretty damn charming one too.


Shadow in the Cloud (14th)

If you’re in the mood for something from the odder side of the street, you’d do well to check out this WWII story meets airborne monster mash-up. Starring Chloë Grace Moretz and full of tense, exciting drama and action.

I Know What You Did Last Summer (15th)

They’ve turned the not-very-good slasher movie from the 90s into a (hopefully) very good TV show and, yeah, that’s the pitch. Expect loads of twists, jump scares and directionally-challenged teenagers running into obvious danger.

I Am Legend (15th)

It’s the not bad flick based on the AMAZING Richard Matheson novel, which is worth a look for Will Smith and some well-executed action scenes. Plus there’s a doggo who is a very good boi indeed.


Nobody (16th)

It’s kind of wild that one of the best action movies in recent years stars Bob Odenkirk (Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul) as a convincing, bad-arse hero and yet, it’s 100% true. Brilliant, exciting and with some of the best action scenes on screen since John Wick, this is absolutely not to be missed.

Just Beyond (13th)

Brand spanking new kid-friendly horror anthology series based on the works of RL Stine looks to be a perfect fit for younger people wanting to get into the Halloween spirit. Plenty of monsters, witches and aliens to keep the tiny weirdos happy.

Hot Tub Time Machine (15th)

Is Hot Tub Time Machine a good movie? Probably not. Will you laugh your bum off during it? Probably so. Particularly if you imbibe some adult beverages on a lazy Sunday arvo or similar.

Generation YouTube (15th)

Fascinating documentary about the origins of Youtube and how it went from being that weird place for cat videos and movie trailers to a ubiquitous part of most of our lives. Eye-opening stuff.

In case you missed it: Here's what was new on Netflix, Stan, Binge and Disney+ October 4-10.
