Feel Good (Season 2)

Mae (co-creator Mae Martin) and her journey towards closure. Feel Good season 1 introduced us to one of TV’s most complicated characters with Mae, a comedian turned into an emotional pretzel by addiction issues, a troubled new relationship with girlfriend George (Charlotte Ritchie), and years of strain with her parents (Lisa Kudrow and Adrian Lukis). 

Season 2 works to explain what made Mae the person she is today — a person she says toward the end of the series she can “barely handle” being. In between silly, well-written vignettes, we learn Mae’s PTSD stems from a “relationship” she had as a teenager with a much older comedian named Scott (John Ross Bowie).

Sweet Tooth (Season 1)

Sweet Tooth is a fantasy series. Sweet Tooth is about a boy named Gus (Christian Convery), who was raised in the remote forest of the American North West by his “Pubba” (or dad), played by Forte. Gus and his father were driven into the wilderness by a few factors: a national outbreak of a deadly virus, the social upheaval caused by that pandemic, and… the fact that Gus is a “hybrid” deer-boy. In the midst of the virus’ chaos, hateful and fearful people began blaming hybrid babies like Gus for the situation, putting innocent children in mortal danger. 

Kim’s Convenience (Season 5)

A delightful Canadian family comedy. Kim’s Convenience season 5 tells the abrupt end of the Kims story, as the comedy was cancelled in March; Kim’s Convenience was initially expected to run until at least its sixth season. In these final 13 episodes, viewers will find the Kims at a crossroads. Parents Appa (Paul Sun-Hyung Lee) and Umma (Jean Yoon) are dealing with a serious medical diagnosis while running their store; daughter Janet (Andrea Bang) is trying to figure out her career path; son Jung (Shang Chi’s Liu) is juggling a California-based business education and long-distance relationship.

Breaking Boundaries: The Science of our Planet

A documentary about the crisis (and promise) of our planet. David Attenborough and Swedish environmental science professor Johan Rockström investigate the scientific foundation of the global climate emergency. But, in a nod towards optimism, the pair also spends Breaking Boundaries’ 75-minute runtime explaining all the ways Earth is not yet lost. The documentary is packed with steps that could pull us back from the brink of all-out collapse. 

Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Eternal The Movie

Sailor Moon (Kotono Mitsuishi) and her Sailor Guardian squad must come together to fight the evil Nehelennia as she and her minions attempt to control our planet and eventually the universe through, essentially, the weapon of Bad Vibes. A string of mini battles ensue, including one with a tiger. Witnessing the Sailor Guardians’ traditional, over-the-top pre-fight glam routines and understanding out why a Pegasus keeps appearing in everyone’s dreams are the main attractions here.


When we meet Carnaval heroine and rising Brazilian influencer Nina (Giovana Cordeiro), she thinks she’s going on vacation with her boyfriend Marcão (Lipy Adler) to Aspen. Then Marcão goes viral for having sex with another woman in his gym. To get over the pain of her split, Nina makes a deal for herself and her three best friends (Bruna Inocencio, Gessica Kayane, and Samya Pascotto) to spend Carnival in the Brazilian city of Salvador (not the country El Salvador). Horny and colourful shenanigans follow with much making out. 

Summertime (Season 2)

Summertime season 2 follows its cast over another summer in their Italian beach town. Summer (Coco Rebecca Edogamhe), Edo (Giovanni Maini), and Sofia (Amanda Campana) have finished their final exams and are looking towards the future; Summer’s ex Ale (Ludovico Tersigni) returns home amid a bid to improve his racing career — and accompanied by new girlfriend Lola (Amparo Pinero Guirao). Even the Summertime parents are feeling the pressure to grow, as Summer’s mom Isabella (Italian singer Thony) ponders a return to the stage.
