What to Watch This Weekend

The dawning of a new era, a throwback to a golden era, and the end of an era...All in one watchlist! Whew! ???? Here's what's poppin' this weekend!

Mack & Rita

Watch in theaters

At one point or another we’ve likely joked that once you hit thirty, you may as well pack up the party animal within and invest in Icy Hot, life insurance, and a bottle of ibuprofen for every room in the house… But for 30-year-old homebody, Mack, the joke becomes a little too real. When she reluctantly joins a Palm Springs bachelorette trip, her inner 70-year-old jumps out— literally, and she transforms into her future self: “Aunt Rita”, played by the incomparable Diane Keaton. This film is sure to tug on heartstrings and inspire viewers not only to have a laugh but to embrace every ounce of who they truly are regardless of what age or stage of life they are currently in.


A League of Their Own: Season One

Watch on Amazon Prime Video

Based on the beloved 1992 film, the A League of Their Own series follows the journey of the WWII All-American professional women’s baseball league players as they travel across a rapidly changing U.S. Starring fan favorites Abby Jacobson (Broad City), D’Arcy Garden (The Good Place) and Nick Offerman (Parks and Rec), this show promises to be a delicious mix of a well-known and iconic storyline, heartwarming scenes, girl power, and fresh faces.


Better Call Saul

Watch on Netflix

The second-to-last episode of this series is here! It’s the end of an era for Breaking Bad fans, for sure; but it’s clear that the genius of Better Call Saul is going to last down to the very last second of the series. It may be hard to say goodbye, but we’re not there quite yet!


Never Have I Ever: Season 3 (Watch on Netflix)

We love a good teen summer romance around these parts, do we not?! Never Have I Ever has delivered us those flowery, butterfly in the tummy feels for two solid seasons now, and season three seems extremely promising as well. Indian American teenager Devi continues to deal with the everyday pressures of high school and drama at home, while also navigating new romantic relationships… Oh, to be a teen queen figuring out the scene and in love! ????


Locke & Key: Season 3 (Watch on Netflix)

MAJOR ????!!! Y’all are not ready for what’s about to be unlocked in this third and last season! The Locke kiddos bite off more than they can chew when Bode finds a time travel key…A turn of events better than anything British Redcoat Captain Gideon could have dreamed to have orchestrated himself.


I Am Groot (Watch on Disney +)

An animated mini-series of shorts you didn’t know you needed! Baby Groot finds his way and grows up amongst all of the mishaps of galactic proportions with the help of his friends and family in the lovable and unlikely superhero team we’ve come to love and know as the Guardians of the Galaxy.

Resident Alien: Season 2 (Watch on Peacock)

Our current fav t.v. “alien superstar”, Harry Vanderspiegle: the alien-in-disguise— is back! Even though his life’s mission is to end all of humanity as we know it, the second season of this show (now back from a few months’ hiatus) proves that he might actually be our last and only hope.


Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the Detroit Lions (Watch on HBO Max)

How it is that HBO manages to convince NFL teams to give them insider access to the sport, to the coaches, and to the teams for better or for worse, is beyond us—but we hope they can keep it going! The tea is always a touchdown! This installation of Hard Knocks will take us on the Detroit Lions’ journey to being as Super Bowl-ready as possible.


Alone: Frozen (Watch on Hulu)

Alone, a reality competition in which folx attempted to survive in the wilderness with nothing but their know-how, some tools, and an endless supply of bravery struck gold with its first installment. But now, we say brrrr…it’s cold in here; as the competition takes to the Canadian arctic tundra with some of the series’ all-stars in tow. Will they make it through, or will the elements cause the competition to freeze up? ????
