Best New TV Shows & Movies This Weekend (January 28)

This weekend, Netflix is adding a sci-fi mystery TV series, a sports comedy, a TV series based on a podcast, and a miniseries with a long name.

This weekend, Netflix is bringing a Scandinavian TV series, a TV series based on a podcast, a sports comedy movie, and a dark comedy miniseries. As the coronavirus pandemic continues, cinemas in most parts of the world continue to be open and working, and streaming services are still an important source of entertainment for many, for different reasons. In Netflix’s case, the platform keeps making sure that it has content from different genres and for all ages so its subscribers always find something to watch, and continues adding new licensed and original content every week.

Last weekend saw the arrival of the romantic drama After We Fell, the thriller American Boogeywoman, and Nickelodeon’s comedy TV series That Girl Lay Lay, along with the romance movie The Royal Treatment, the British drama movie Munich – The Edge of War, and part 1 of the final season of Ozark. Surprisingly, Netflix won’t add new licensed content this week, so all eyes will go straight to its original content, which brings a bit of everything for everyone to enjoy.

Now, Middelbo is no longer what it has been, and the question is whether it has ever been what it pretends to be at all. When Emma accidentally discovers that the whole story of the meteor is a lie, a dangerous and improbable truth about the sleepy town reveals itself – something that is far more perilous and incredible than she could have ever imagined.
