What to Watch This Weekend

From soccer (aka Football) in England to gymnastics in Tokyo, this weekend is jam-packed with content (both sports-related and not) to keep you entertained! Here's what's poppin'!

Ted Lasso: Season 2

Watch on Apple TV+

Are you ready to believe again?!? The AFC Richmond team is back in action for the highly-anticipated second season of Ted Lasso! The series stars Jason Sudeikis as a small-time football coach who gets hired to coach a professional soccer team in England having had no previous experience. Optimism abounds in this sports series that will still resonate with you even if you’re not a sports fan. Critics have been loving the new season so far and we can’t wait to see what our PopViewers think!

Old

Watch in Theaters

Does anyone else feel as if they’ve aged an entire lifetime over the past year we just had? Picture that, but shorten it into a day. That’s essentially the plot of this new M. Night Shyamalan movie about a family on a tropical vacation. Things aren’t quite as serene as they seem, however, after the family discovers that they’re rapidly aging. They’re DEF gonna need a vacation after this vacation.

Tokyo Olympics

Watch on NBC (July 23- August 8)

The 2020 Tokyo Olympics are finally happening an entire year later. Don’t expect these games to be like any other year though. For the first time ever, the entire event will be held without spectators due to the pandemic. Viewers can expect heartwarming stories of triumph and dazzling displays of athleticism. We can only hope that the games aren’t overshadowed by the questionable decision of them happening during what is still very much a global pandemic.

Bonus Picks:

Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins (Watch in Theaters)

This movie stars Henry Golding and tells the story of Snake Eyes who joins an ancient Japanese clan known as the Arashikage. The clan teaches him how to be a ninja warrior, but when secrets from Snake Eyes’ past are revealed his honor gets tested and he’s faced with an impossibly difficult choice.

Sexy Beasts (Watch on Netflix)

Just when you think we’ve reached the bottom of the barrel of reality dating shows, along comes Sexy Beasts! Basically, imagine a blind date with both parties masked up in full prosthetic makeup. Yup, that’s it. But if you’re looking for an easy watch, maybe give this one a binge.
