10 Shows and Movies You NEED to Stream This Weekend

Sometimes when you log on to Netflix there is absolutely nothing to watch. This is not one of those times. Almost every streaming service is having a resurgence this weekend — no matter which you’re subscribed to, there’s probably a premiere happening. So, we’ve got 10 of the best shows and movies dropping on the Internet this weekend that everybody (and we mean ERRYBODY) will be talking about on Monday.

LAUGH OUT LOUD

1. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: In case you were inducted into a cult and have been missing for the past 15 years, Tina Fey’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is coming back for season two. Bust open a bottle of Pinot Noir (caviar, Myanmar, mid-sized car), round up your besties for a viewing party and get ready to binge. (Image via Netflix)

2. Bones: It’s the show that never really ends — but do you really want it to? Season 11 is landing on Hulu this weekend, so it’s as good an excuse as any to watch all previous 10. (Image via FOX)

TAKE ACTION

3. American Grit: The perfect show for anybody seriously missing Survivor right about now, American Grit takes 16 competitors and throws them into army-like conditions. It’s a great watch for either those looking for inspiration to hit the gym or those searching for more reasons to be thankful for their couch and lazy weekends. (Image via FOX)

4. Primal Survivor: It’s one of those shows that will simultaneously make you grateful for the indoors and whet your appetite for adventure. Wilderness guide and survival instructor Hazen Audel travels around the world and teaches viewers skills you’ll hopefully never have to use, but are grateful that you know. (Image via Nat Geo)

DISCOVER AN UNDER-THE-RADAR SHOW

5. Documentary Now: When Fred Armisen and Bill Hader team up, the result is guaranteed to be hysterical. Their IFC show is now landing on Netflix. Every one of the seven episodes is a parody of a famous, critically acclaimed documentary — including the most perfect impression of the Grey Gardens ladies the world has ever seen. (Image via IFC)

6. Cuckoo: The show that’s consistently, surprisingly and undeservedly below-the-radar, Netflix’s original comedy Cuckoo is about an American hippie marrying into a proper British family, starring Taylor Lautner and Andy Samberg. New episodes are this weekend, and it’s definitely worth a watch. (Image via Netflix)

GET LOST IN A POWERFUL THRILLER

7. The Whistleblower: Rachel Weisz plays a cop from Nebraska who works as a peacekeeper in Bosnia and uncovers a sex scandal the U.N. tried to cover up. It’s based on true events and was nominated for 11 different awards at international film festivals. Whistleblower is one of those movies that will make you ask yourself, “Why didn’t I know about this?” (Image via Samuel Goldwyn Films)

8. Amores Perros: Amores Perros will remind you just how dynamic life south of the border can be — all while delivering a powerful and moving story. It was nominated for an Oscar for Best Foreign Film when it came out in 2000. (Image via IMDB)

ROOT FOR GIRL POWER

9. Confirmation: Kerry Washington seems to have a thing for playing strong, political women — although this character could not be more different from Olivia Pope. In Confirmation she plays Anita Hill, a law professor who unwillingly becomes the center of national attention when she accuses Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment.

10. The Mindy Project: The brief period after The Office when Mindy Kaling went off the radar was a dark time for us all. And when there was a chance that The Mindy Project would be cancelled, Hulu came to the rescue and brought the show about a Mindy not-so-unlike Kaling — except the character Mindy is a gynecologist instead of an actress — to the Internet. The “network” will now stream Mindy’s never-ending quest to become “the perfect woman” every Tuesday night — meaning Tuesday night shows are about to get way too relatable. (Image via Hulu)
