Binge, sleep, repeat.
There's a certain energy in the air when Friday rolls around, no matter what the season. People start packing up their desks a little earlier than usual, make plans for Saturday morning brunch and scroll through their dating apps looking for dinner dates.
It can almost feel like it’s mandatory to 'do something' over the weekend.
But in typical Irish fashion, this weekend isn't promising the best on the weather front. However, we're not going to let that get us down, because if our moods were weather-dependent in Ireland, then we'd probably never get out of bed.
The good thing is that there's ample content for you to enjoy from the safety of your living room/bed over the weekend to pass the time in between the bursts of rain and thunder.
Keep scrolling for a complete list of everything new to Netflix this weekend.
Glow, season 3:
Inspired by the short-lived but beloved show from the 80s, GLOW tells the fictional story of Ruth Wilder (Alison Brie), an out-of-work, struggling actress in 1980s Los Angeles who finds one last chance for stardom when she’s thrust into the glitter and spandex world of women's wrestling. Season 3 follows the ladies of GLOW as they take the Vegas strip by storm.
Investigative journalists expose The Fellowship, a Christian fundamentalist organization quietly operating in the corridors of power in Washington, D.C.
Everyone on the internet is talking about it and so should you. Newlywed Jennifer (Brenda Song) awakens with amnesia having been hit by a car after running away from a hooded man. Though in recovery, she is physically and psychologically fragile. Fortunately, her husband Russell (Mike Vogel - 'The Help') is a constant support to her. When the couple returns home from the hospital, Jennifer gets flashbacks she can't understand and comes to question her marriage.
Told through three characters’ perspectives, the story of Sintonia explores the universe of music, crime, and religion in São Paulo's capital. Doni, Nando, and Rita all grew up together in the same favela, where they were influenced by the draw of funk, drug trafficking, and the evangelical church. Despite them following very different paths, the three childhood friends ultimately realize that to achieve their dreams, they'll need to rely on and support each other throughout this journey.
tHE nAKED director:
Based on a true story, The Naked Director is a fearless challenge brought to life by the incredible cast. In the 1980s, the bubble economy was at its peak and all of Japan was over-excited with possibility. Prior to the advent of office ladies and female college students fanatically waving ‘Juli-fans’ and dancing in Juliana Tokyo, there was one determined entrepreneur who was developing adult videos at the beginning of the industry and challenging Japanese old-fashioned cultural norms about sex. He was a ‘pioneer of broadcasting taboo’, director Toru Muranishi. Muranishi revolutionized the concept of eroticism in Japan, and alongside legendary AV actress, Kaoru Kuroki became household names.
In this new Netflix movie, award-winning actresses Angela Bassett, Patricia Arquette and Felicity Huffman play longtime friends who drive to New York to reconnect with their adult sons, and in the process, realize their sons are not the only ones whose lives need to change. It’s a journey of rediscovery that forces the women to redefine their relationships with their children, friends, spouses and themselves.
