What to Watch This Weekend

Why beach this weekend when you could binge instead? (Okay, we're in full support of having some fun in the sun as well! All about balance.) Here's all of the content that's poppin' this MDW!


Watch in Theaters

There’s nothing like celebrating Memorial Day Weekend with a good old-fashioned Summer Blockbuster! After a 36-year wait, Tom Cruise is back in Top Gun mode playing a top Navy aviator who must confront his deepest fears in an epic mission that demands the ultimate sacrifice from those chosen to fly it. Many critics have already dubbed this a rare sequel that is actually superior to the original. We cannot wait to hear all of your thoughts on it on the app.


Watch on Netflix

After a three-year wait, the ever-popular sci-fi series is back for a fourth season. This season is longer and more ambitious than ever. Because of that, Netflix is releasing the season in two parts, the first of which drops this weekend. Very few details have been released about this new season so far, but if you’re a fan of the series, the creators have promised that you will not be disappointed.


Watch on Disney+

Get out your light sabers! The light and dark sides of the force clash once again in the new Star Wars limited series. To say that this series has been highly anticipated by Star Wars fans would be an understatement. It begins 10 years after the events of “Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith” in which Obi-Wan Kenobi faced his greatest defeat — the downfall of Anakin Skywalker.

Further Viewing:

THIS IS US (Watch on NBC)

This week, “This Is Us” became “This WAS Us.” (Sorry, it was right there.) One of NBC’s most popular dramas ever came to a conclusion this week. While we don’t know what will happen with the Pearsons, we have a pretty good hunch that we’ll be needing ALL of the tissues!

SOMEBODY FEEL PHIL (Watch on Netflix)

“Everybody Loves Raymond” creator Phil Rosenthal is headed back to Netflix for his fifth course! In this season, he travels to Maine, Oaxaca, Mexico; Helsinki, Finland; Portland, Oregon; and Madrid, Spain to meet people and eat great food. How do we get THAT job?!?


We still have a few more weeks before the new “Jurassic World” movie, but if you’re looking for a dinosaur fix to tide you over, this five-night event might be the ticket! Using CGI technology and narrated by David Attenborough, this series takes viewers back millions of years to show them what it would have been like when dinosaurs roamed the earth.

WE FEED PEOPLE (Watch on Disney+)

In this documentary, Oscar-winning director Ron Howard spotlights the work of José Andrés and his nonprofit, World Central Kitchen— one of the most highly regarded humanitarian aid organizations in the world.


SNL might have had its season finale last weekend, but that doesn’t mean you still cannot get your Michael Che fix! The comedian is back for another season of his comedy sketch show which highlights his perspective on being a Black man in America.
