The Netflix shows for this Feb weekend

Malcolm and Marie

Malcolm (John David Washington) and Marie (Zendaya) take on the roles of two emotionally intense lovers. Over the next hour and 50 something minutes, audiences experience Malcolm and Marie’s beloved couple. Malcolm and Marie, the only two actors in this lockdown-era movie by Euphoria producer Sam Levinson, loudly air their complaints combined with resentments sometimes targeted towards each other. Press play if you’d like to occupy your weekend with a little bit of drama.

Firefly Lane (Season 1)

The Firefly Lane key timeline will take place in 2003. The show is about the decades-old friendship between Tully Hart (Katherine Hiegel of Grey’s Anatomy) and Kate Mularkey (Sarah Chalke of Scrubs). Tully is a daytime TV host based in Seattle at the moment; Kate is a mom who recently divorced from her husband (and creator of Tully) Johnny Ryan. Firefly Lane follows Tully and Kate on this life-changing year of their shared life. It has a few extremes put together with a charming connection between the two friends.

If you simply can’t get enough of NBC’s This Is UsFirefly Lane is something you should definitely give a try.

Strip down, Rise up

The women at the heart of the documentary Strip Off, Rise Up shape into a six-month sisterhood, combining the physical labour of dance with the mental toil of processing through the pain they hold in their bodies, unlike daily exercise lessons. That suggests that there are more shots of group therapy tears ahead, along with deeply kept revelations. The documentary is, in the end, optimistic about the potential benefits of the pole, considering the agony hidden in the hearts of many Strip Down subjects.

Tiffany Haddish Presents: They Ready (Season 2)

A Netflix show that showcases Tiffany Haddish’s six favourite comedians. The six comedians that feature on the show are a set of special friends Tiffany Haddish once promised to bring along with her should she ever succeed. With 20-minute sets, Haddish’s mates, including TV commentator Godfrey and Last Comic Standing contestant Kimberly Clark, rise to the challenge.

Space Sweepers

 A Korean-language sci-fi with lovable, isolated misfits — like any good space movie. It’s 2092 and pilot Tae-ho (Song Joong-ki), ex-pirate Captain Jang (Kim Tae-ri), engineer Tiger Park (Jin Sun-kyu), and former military robot Bubs (Yoo Hai-jin) crew the spaceship Victory. On the latest mission, the group accidentally comes into possession of a dangerous and extremely in demand humanoid — who also looks exactly like an adorable little girl. The movie is great for a fun popcorn night in. 

The Yin Yang Master: Dream of Eternity

This is a fantasy/action epic. A Chinese movie based on Japanese mythology and a beloved Baku Yumemakura novel series. A gigantic demonic serpent, demons, deadly conspiracies.

Hache (Season 2)

A Spanish-language drug drama inspired by true events which features Helena (Adriana Ugarte), aka “Hache”. When viewers first meet Helena, she is a sex worker in 1960s Barcelona. Single mom Hache is desperate to care for her daughter while her partner Bruno (Roger Casamajor) is in jail. Helena decides to switch careers — and enter the heroin trade — when she crosses paths with Malpica (Javier Rey), the head of an organized crime gang.  

 Season 2 of Hache is back with Hache, who is now responsible for the whole operation of Malpica. She must struggle to remain on top as romantic fires, family ties, and general crime lord stressors bring pressure on Helena’s company. If you’ve watched Queen of the South and Monarca, then this is a show for you.

Invisible City

 A Brazilian Portugese fantasy drama. 

Eric (Marco Pigossi), an environmental detective. Eric is haunted by the death of his anthropologist wife, Gabriela (Julia Konrad). As big business prepares to buy up more indigenous land in Brazil (land Gabriela worked to protect) Eric realizes the folkloric characters he heard about growing up may be standing right in front of him. During Invisible City season 1, Eric must figure out what the existence of these supernatural beings mean for his own sad past. Press play, if you have still failed to get over Supernatural after that series finale a few months ago.

You simply can’t complain with all these Netflix shows available and so much diversity to go around. You simply need to make your pick and you’ll be covered for the entire weekend.
