Everything streaming on Netflix, Stan, BINGE, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+, Apple TV+ and Paramount+ that’s worth your time from May 9-15, 2022.

NETFLIX

Our Father (11th)

Hard-hitting documentary about a fertility doctor who got way too involved with his work. Really harrowing but mind-blowing stuff if you have the stomach for it.

Our Father is the kind of story that will make you want to hide under the doona, behind the couch, holding a cricket bat. Picture: Netflix

Savage Beauty (12th)

Slick-looking thriller about a woman who embroils herself in a global beauty empire and uncovers some dark and scary secrets. Looks intriguing.

Lincoln Lawyer (13th)

Fans of courtroom dramas and crime thrillers will no doubt rejoice at this new series, about an idealistic lawyer who runs his practice out the back of his Lincoln Town Car.

If The Lincoln Lawyer does well enough, perhaps Netty will greenlight our Aussie spin-off The Ute Surgeon. Hey, you never know. Picture: Netflix

Senior Year (13th)

Rebel Wilson stars in this silly, but hopefully funny, comedy about a cheerleader waking up from a 20-year coma and wanting to finish high school. Getting gender-flipped Billy Madison vibes here.

Rebel Wilson heads back to school in Senior Year and finds the place has changed a whole lot in two decades. We feel that every day, gurl. Picture: Netflix

Bling Empire S2 (13th)

Cry to the heavens and gnash your teeth all you want, but Netflix is deadset keen on keeping this dumpster alight. The second season of this reality TV dross is here so, you know, plan accordingly.

There's so bad it's good telly, and there's so bad it's awful telly. Bling Empire is defo the latter, but if you insist on watching we won't judge... much. Picture: Netflix

STAN

David Attenborough’s Galapagos (9th)

Frankly, we’d watch footage of paint drying if Dave Attenborough gave us his soothing narration over the top. Don’t judge. It’s called self care, sweetie, look it up.

PICK OF THE WEEK

Hacks S2 (13th)

One of the best surprises last year has landed a second season! Razor-sharp yet warm-hearted comedy about a young writer’s professional and personal relationship with a famous, but troubled, comedian. Highly recommended and an absolute delight.

Jean Smart absolutely kills it in the excellent second season of Hacks, which you should totes be watching, hey. Picture: Stan

Terminator Genisys (15th)

One of the worst major franchise sequels ever coughed up like a sticky furball. Fascinatingly awful, if you enjoy watching appalling stuff. Still better than Bling Empire, mind you.

BINGE

Ted Bundy, The Survivors S1 (11th)

Serial killer Ted Bundy was an absolute monster, but some of the women he preyed on escaped with their lives. This series tells their stories in their own words. Powerful stuff if you can handle the creep factor.

Ted Bundy, The Survivors tells the tale of the monstrous serial killer from the victim's perspectives. Picture: BINGE

Halloween Kills (12th)

Halloween Kills is such a mess of a film. Totally bonkers script, an absurdly high death toll and gore factor and far too little Jamie Lee Curtis. Still, it’s never boring and is quite well shot.

Amazon Prime Video

All of the Bond films (11th)

Yep, you read that correctly. All of the Bond films. Including No Time to Die and all the ones where that bloke uses a weaponised hat to kill people. This is… a very strange series of movies.

The one problem with the Bond collection? Far too little Ana de Armas. In fact, she's barely in No Time to Die! For shame, James, for shame. Picture: Amazon Prime Video

Disney+

The Quest S1 (11th)

The Amazing Race meets Lord of the Rings in this weird hybrid fantasy/reality telly show where twelve contestants face off against some evil wizards and mythical beings. Gotta admit, we’re a little curious.

Straight up, we have no idea what's going on here in The Quest. Still, the costumes are fun. Picture: Disney+

Trafficked with Mariana Van Zeller S2 (11th)

Experienced journo Mariana van Zeller investigates black markets and smuggling networks which form the world’s largest shadow economies. If she’s lucky, she might be able to nab a PS5 too!

The Revenant (13th)

This is actually a superbly crafted historical thriller. But, let’s be real, you’re going to watch it just for the scene where Leonardo DiCaprio gets absolutely minced by a stroppy bear. Intense!

Apple TV+

The Essex Serpent (13th)

Claire Danes and Tom Hiddleston star in this adaptation of the famous novel by Sarah Perry. Less about a literal serpent, more of a historical drama with some romance thrown in for good measure.

Tom Hiddleston searches for meaning and a big bloody snake in The Essex Serpent, which also stars Claire Danes. Picture: Apple TV+

Paramount+

Finding YingYing (10th)

Heartbreaking documentary about a Chinese family heading to America to find out what happened to their daughter. Powerful stuff, although you may need a glass or two of wine. For medicinal purposes.

Super Pumped: The Battle for Uber (12th)

Slick dramatisation of the office politics and various shenanigans that brought Uber to where it is today. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Kyle Chandler and Uma Thurman round out an impressive cast.

Super Pumped: The Battle for Uber is the true story of how you're able to get that Wednesday night shame pizza so cheaply. Picture: Paramount+
