Are you looking for new releases in Film or Television to watch this weekend of March 18th!? Well, THS has you covered in our weekly series! So, make sure to come back each week as we compile all of our recommendations for you to check out on your days off.
However, I wanted to break down this list and make it a little more personal. Kind of like when you walk into a book store and see the wall of employee recommendations. So, I’ll be breaking down this list as to what we at THS are watching, not necessarily every single thing releasing. So, first up Sarah!
One of my favorite shows’ final seasons is coming to Hulu. So, I’m definitely diving into Claws. Then, I’ll be checking out Amy Schumer’s new series, Life & Beth. I also think Minx on HBOMax is fantastic! If you haven’t seen my review make sure to check it out. I’ll definitely be doing a rewatch. If I make it to the movie theater, I definitely want to see Alice, The Outfit, and Umma!.
This weekend I’ll be watching quite a bit of NCAA basketball as March Madness has kicked off. In between games, I’m spending some time on Disney+ and familiarizing myself with the animated series Star Wars: Rebels to prepare for Obi-Wan in May.
I’m planning to rewatch Better Call Saul season 5 before season 6 debuts next month.
I’m still diving into The Owl House Season 2. Right now, I’m on Ep. 11. Then, it’s back to binge-watching Gargoyles.
I’m headed to the theater to be emotionally attacked by Umma. Oh, AND I’m planning a Murder, She Wrote streaming marathon with friends. (It’s on Peacock and IMDb!) We have a very elaborate timed guess-the-killer competitive points setup going on. It’s a whole thing.
I’m continuing to watch Law And Order over on Peacock, and I’m probably going to try to rewatch Ladies Of London on the streaming service as well. I actually enjoy the show a lot, even though I don’t watch a lot of reality television.
I’m on a Star Trek: The Next Generation binge marathon before it leaves Netflix
We’re watching 90-day fiance… cause we are too invested to quit it lol. Also, The Office and all the Scream movies in order to finally watch Scream 5!
