What’s new on Netflix, BINGE, Amazon Prime and Disney+ this week
Everything streaming on Netflix, Stan, BINGE, Amazon Prime Video and Disney+ that’s worth your time from September 13-19.
Jack Whitehall: Travels with my Father S5 (14th)
Jake Whitehall is back, and traveling once more with his stuffy old dad Michael. Look, this is season five, so you know what you’re in for. If you dig the amiable comic/older grouch dynamic you’re in for a treat.
Tell a scary story each night or be trapped with a witch forever! That’s the deal the main character of Nightbooks must face in this horror yarn for young people. Seems like a pretty easy choice, tbh. The witch is played by none other than the great Krysten Ritter!
Rev heads rejoice, as the acclaimed documentary film about racing legend Michael Schumacher is here. Expect plenty of revealing moments and shocking truths about this at times tragic figure.
First trailer for Back To The Rafters coming on Amazon Prime Video this week
Nine Perfect Strangers is Amazon Prime Video's hard to resist, trippy drama
Final Space S3 (16th)
It’s the space faring adult animation adventure show that proudly boasts “I’m not quite as good as Rick and Morty, but I’m still fun!” Surprisingly high stakes adventures await in this underrated charmer.
Chicago Party Aunt (17th)
More adult animation on Netty! This time a fun, filter-free show about an aunt who just can’t stop partying and her nephew with whom she shares a special bond. Lots of good natured laughs here plus some jokes that would probs shock your real life aunty Noreen.
PICK OF THE WEEK
Sex Education S3 (17th)
It’s back, baby! After one of the cruellest cliffhangers in the history of telly, the third season of Netty’s most delightful, well observed and hilariously frank show is finally here for you to binge like a monster. Also, if Otis and Maeve don’t get it together this season there’s going to be trouble.
The Witches (1990) (13th)
Forget the not-very-good remake and take a trip back to the 1990s with this delightful adaptation of a Roald Dahl story. Bow before queen Anjelica Huston, drink in the nostalgia, wonder why they don’t make 'em like this anymore.
The stress and hard work involved in athletic perfection, in this case swimming, is explored in dramatic, compelling ways in this new Aussie movie. Starring Levi Miller and Jason Isaacs, this is a richly textured drama and well worth your time.
Hey, it’s that Academy Award-winning movie you kept meaning to watch but never got around to. Well, now it’s on Stan so hook in! Starring the always welcome Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead), this is a beautifully told rumination on family and home.
Scene from a Marriage S1 (13th)
We’re remaking Ingmar Bergman films now, apparently. This time with certified hotties Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain, this looks to be slow-moving but very emotional stuff, so bring a hefty supply of tissues and Tim Tams.
Y: The Last Man S1 (13th)
Imagine a post-apocalyptic world where everyone with a Y chromosome has been wiped out except for one man. And his pet monkey, naturally. Based on the cult comic book series of the same name, Y: The Last Man is sure to inspire a similarly devoted following.
The Premise S1 (17th)
BJ Novak (you remember him from The Office) now has an anthology show about modern day issues and it promises to be compelling and thought-provoking. Sometimes funny, sometimes sad, always intriguing.
Crazy Rich Asians (17th)
Look, you’ve probably already seen it, but why not watch it again? It’s fun, it’s silly, it’s pretty, it doesn’t judge you for eating a whole pie in front of it. What’s not to love?
Bored and at a loss what to watch? Say hello to this Brian DePalma classic, starring Al Pacino and a very young Michelle Pfeiffer, and drink in the excessive violence, devil’s dandruff and garish colours that typified the 1980s.
Amazon Prime Video
Leonard Cohen: I’m Your Man (14th)
Part concert, part doco, I’m Your Man is a moving and soulful account of a unique artist who left us with some beautiful music. No one did it quite like Leonard Cohen.
Back to the Rafters (17th)
Yep, you guessed it, this is a continuation of the popular Aussie telly show Packed to the Rafters that ran from 2008-2013. This sort of acts as a reboot/sequel, to snare in fans of the old and people who didn’t watch it. Promises to be wholesome.
Everyone’s Talking About Jamie (17th)
It’s a biopic/musical about a wannabe drag queen, based on the stage musical of the same name, and it looks fabulous for fans of LGBTQ+ themed entertainment and big-hearted, colourful romps with inclusive messages.
Narco Wars S1 (15th)
Fascinating second season of the doco series exploring how the drug trade in Latin America created drug empires for years to come. True crime buffs are going to eat this up. It’s, uh, quite habit forming.
Isle of Dogs (17th)
It feels like a long time since we’ve had a Wes Anderson film, so why not revisit his most recent one? Isle of Dogs is a fetching stop motion animation with a typically star-studded cast including Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum and Bryan Cranston.
Descendents: The Royal Wedding (17th)
Descendents: The Royal Wedding is an animated spin-off special from The Descendents franchise. All of that probably makes a lot more sense if you’re a teenager, and if you are: please enjoy this show and lack of lower back pain!
