A new weekend is upon us and naturally, our inner content-hungry monsters are looking for new shows and movies to devour. While some new releases on Australia’s streaming services may pique your interest, it’s slim pickings overall.
For Netflix, you can expect to see the final five episodes of the hit Spanish period drama, Cable Girls, or the Baby-Sitters Club remake if you’re feeling nostalgic.
