Who you gonna call?? Carrie Coon plays a single mother who moves to a new town with her two children. It’s there where they discover that their grandfather had a secret legacy that attaches them to the original Ghostbusters.

Will Joe Exotic mania sweep the world once more? We will just have to hold onto our flower crowns and see!

Further Viewing:

TICK, TICK… BOOM! (Watch on Netflix) 

Lin-Manuel Miranda directs this film adaptation of Jonathan Larson’s rock musical monologue. Larson, for those unaware, was the composer of RENT who rose to prominence during the 90s as the “future of musical theater.” Sadly, he never lived to see the success of RENT as he passed away from an aortic aneurysm the night before the musical was set to begin previews. Andrew Garfield stars as Larson in this film which documents the struggles that come with being an artist when you feel as though you’re running out of time.

THE CURSE OF VON DUTCH: A BRAND TO DIE FOR (Watch on Hulu)

Von Dutch trucker caps were an iconic staple of Y2K-era fashion, seen on everyone from Paris Hilton to Lindsay Lohan. The brand, however, eventually became known as much for money laundering and first-degree murder as they were for their jeans. In many ways, this three-part documentary serves as the perfect aperitif for “House of Gucci” which premieres next week.

COWBOY BEBOP (Watch on Netflix) 

John Cho and Mustafa Shakir star in this live-action adaptation of the iconic Japanese animated series of the same name. Essentially this series is a space Western that follows a crew of bounty hunters as they chase down the galaxy’s most dangerous criminals.

You know what’s better than one Vanessa Hudgens? THREE! After a priceless Christmas relic is stolen, princesses Margaret (Vanessa Hudgens) and Stacy (Vanessa Hudgens) must turn to their criminal cousin Fiona (you guessed it… Vanessa Hudgens) for help.

THE SEX LIVES OF COLLEGE GIRLS (Watch on HBO Max)

Mindy Kaling produced this series about a group of four female roommates as they navigate their freshman year at Essex College.

THE GREAT: Season 2 (Watch on Hulu)
