Netflix is adding some great original content tonight, including the highly anticipated second season of Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina. There’s also the star-studded drama Unicorn Store, the historical epic Roman Empire: Caligula and a spiritual successor to David Attenborough’s Planet Earth series; Our Planet. (And that’s just the cream of the crop!)

Truly, your main conundrum this Friday night will be deciding which show to watch first – do you catch up with Sabrina and the gang at Gravestone Heights? Or indulge your senses in the amazing nature documentary Our Planet? Or perhaps you’re keen to see more of Brie Larson in Unicorn Store alongside her Captain Marvel co-star Samuel L. Jackson?

They all drop tonight, alongside plenty of others. (History buffs and pervos will probably want to check out the Caligula biopic too.) Read on for everything coming to the service for the weekend of April 5 to April 7.

  • Nothing at all COOL relating to Netflix, also a weak, incorrect descriptive word, correct factual use is for the weather.
    Netflix scriptwriters and associates are pathetic and inadequately educated due to the endless use of the ‘sexual intercourse’ slang word, this would be due to the lack of knowledge of a plethora of great descriptive words in the English language (which they would spell incorrectly — as they describe a plough as a ‘plow’).
    To make the movies more annoying are the woeful, amateur, D-grade meaningless songs played randomly in the movie.
    Proof of all this is evident when trying to understand the muffled, closed-mouth talking which forces the use of subtitles.
    Complete obsession with the continuous use of ‘F******KING’ words proves the low-grade education factor in each of their brains.
