Everything streaming on Netflix, Stan, BINGE, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+, Apple TV+ and Paramount+ that’s worth your time from May 2-8, 2022.

NETFLIX

Meltdown: Three Mile Island (4th)

Hard-hitting documentary about the Three Mile Island incident, which was a bit like Chernobyl but in Pennsylvania. Probably not good dinner telly, to be honest.

People of a sensitive disposition will want to stay three miles (or more) away from Meltdown: Three Mile Island. Picture: Netflix

Clark (5th)

Fascinating series about real-life criminal Clark Olofsson who was the bloke for whom the term “Stockholm Syndrome” was created. This is a true story that’s a whole lot stranger than fiction.

You might actually quite like Clark, but that could also be the Stockholm Syndrome talking. Picture: Netflix

The Pentaverate (5th)

Mike Myers is back! This time playing five (or more) different roles in a nutty sounding story involving conspiracies, secret societies and other assorted nonsense. Will it be the next Austin Powers or another disastrous The Love Guru? Watch to find out.

Do we know what's going on here? We do not. But we suspect silly accents will be involved in The Pentaverate. Picture: Netflix

Along For the Ride (6th)

This is a cute looking romance about two insomniacs who form a bond that then develops into something more. Meanwhile, the rest of us just doom scroll Insta until dawn.

The Takedown (6th)

Remember when buddy cop movies were all the rage? Well, now they’re back - in French form! Starring Omar Sy (Lupin) this action flick looks like a fast-paced good time.

If you love buddy cop movies and can't get enough of Omar Sy, boy do WE have some good news for ya! Picture: Netflix

STAN

Girls5Eva S2 (6th)

The second season of the show about a middle-aged girl band reunion is here for more genuinely funny comedy. Underrated little charmer, this one.

Girls5Eva is back! Get ready to have that damn catchy theme tune in your head for the next six months. Picture: Stan

Pet Sematary 1 & 2 (7th)

The 1989 original is one of the better Stephen King adaptations of the time. The sequel? Complete and utter nonsense but gleefully, stupidly entertaining. Both of them are worth a watch.

Made For Love S2 (Now)

The second season of the show about a woman trying to escape from a douchey, obsessive billionaire is here. We liked the first season, so it’s probably worth giving the second one a shot.

BINGE

The Staircase (5th)

Prestige drama adaptation of the documentary sensation is here, starring Toni Collette and Colin Firth. For those who are yet to tire of “the husband almost certainly did it, right?” stories, this should be a slick, engaging good(ish) time.

The Staircase is the star-studded adaptation of the true crime sensation. Colin Firth, what did you do? Picture: BINGE

Amazon Prime Video

The Wilds S2 (6th)

Will The Wilds still seem as wild after the excellent Yellowjackets kind of ate its lunch? That remains to be seen, but this should be a pretty exciting yarn nonetheless.

The Wilds shows the very real pain of walking out of the club when the sun's up. Picture: Amazon Prime Video

Bosch: Legacy (6th)

Wait, didn’t Bosch just finish? Is that the legacy? A show that never ends? Ah well, Bosch fans will probably be stoked to see their favourite is, apparently, a neverending story.

"Wait, didn't we just finish this whole thing like a year ago?" Bosch: Legacy provides answers and MOAR BOSCH. Picture: Amazon Prime Video

DISNEY+

Moon Knight S1 finale (4th)

So, one of Marvel’s oddest shows reaches its ending. Did we like it? Was it a bit too wacky for its own good? Legion did the ‘superhero with mental illness’ thing a lot better, we reckon. Still, Oscar Isaac is always worth watching.

Disney Gallery: The Book of Boba Fett — Disney+ Original Film (4th)

Here’s a documentary about the making of The Book of Boba Fett. Hopefully it will answer our most urgent questions like “why did Boba vanish from his own show for like three episodes?”

Apple TV+

Tehran S2 (6th)

Second season of the Israeli spy series adds the always welcome Glenn Close! That’s quite the cast addition and may be worth coming back to this imperfect but engaging show for.

Glenn Close has entered the chat in Tehran! Hopefully everyone knows to keep her away from the bunnies. Picture: Apple TV+

The Big Conn (6th)

This is a docu-series about a bloke called Eric C. Conn who managed to flog half a billion dollars in the biggest Social Security fraud case in history. He was caught by Brian D. Copp. Possibly.

Paramount+

PICK OF THE WEEK

Star Trek: Strange New Words (5th)

Look, these new Star Trek shows aren’t perfect. Discovery has way too much crying and Picard is a bit of a dog’s breakfast. But Strange New Worlds looks like a spectacular return to more episodic storytelling and Anson Mount is always welcome on the telly. Let’s give it a bash, eh?

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds promises brand new adventures, a more episodic format and certified DILF Anson Mount. Picture: Paramount+
