Award season may be done, but it doesn’t mean Netflix is stopping their onslaught of fresh content. Below is our pick of the best worth watching this weekend 


Spenser Confidential

Spenser (Mark Wahlberg) — an ex-cop better known for making trouble than solving it — just got out of prison and is leaving Boston for good. But first he gets roped into helping his old boxing coach and mentor, Henry (Alan Arkin), with a promising amateur. That’s Hawk (Winston Duke), a brash, no-nonsense MMA fighter convinced he’ll be a tougher opponent than Spenser ever was. When two of Spenser’s former colleagues turn up murdered, he recruits Hawk and his foul-mouthed ex-girlfriend, Cissy (Iliza Shlesinger), to help him investigate and bring the culprits to justice. Inspired by Robert B. Parker’s Wonderland, a best-selling novel by Ace Atkins.

Love is Blind: Reunion

If you need another Love is Blind fix, you’re in luck. You can join Jessica, Mark, Lauren, Cameron, Barnett, Amber, Carlton, Diamond, Kelly, Kenny, Giannina and Damian as they share with Nick and Vanessa Lachey what they’ve learned from their experiences and what it was like to see it play out on screen. After a highly-anticipated season finale, Nick and Vanessa Lachey bring the cast of Love is Blind back together for the first time to spill the tea and come clean on the season’s juiciest moments.

Shutter Island

Shutter Island is the story of two U.S. marshals, Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Chuck Aule (Mark Ruffalo), who are summoned to a remote and barren island off the coast of Massachusetts to investigate the mysterious disappearance of a murderess from the island’s fortress-like hospital for the criminally insane. It’s a career-best from both DiCaprio and director Martin Scorsese and when you get to the final scene, you’ll question every scene you watched before it. A brilliant thriller.

Apollo 11

This one is a cinematic event 50 years in the making. Crafted from a newly-discovered trove of 65mm footage, and more than 11,000 hours of uncatalogued audio recordings, Apollo 11 takes us straight to the heart of NASA’s most celebrated mission— the one that first put men on the moon, and forever made Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin into household names. Immersed in the perspectives of the astronauts, the team in Mission Control, and the millions of spectators on the ground, we vividly experience those momentous days and hours in 1969 when humankind took a giant leap into the future.

Ugly Delicious: Season 2  

Ugly Delicious returns for a second season from James Beard Award-Winning Chef David Chang and Academy Award-Winner Morgan Neville. The second season of the hit series continues to challenge both our taste buds and our minds as Chef Chang travels the world with writers and chefs, activists and artists, who use food as a vehicle to break down cultural barriers, tackle misconceptions and uncover shared experiences. And this season ventures into more of the unknown, including the world of parenting as Chang gears up to become a first-time father.
