Here are all of the best things coming to Netflix over the bank holiday weekend

Sure, the weather might be nice… But do you really want to miss Dear White People: Volume 2?

AT PRESENT, THE weather forecast for this weekend is surprisingly promising. So promising, that we can’t imagine that many people plan on sitting in watching Netflix…


However, we all know that good weather can result in a BBQ, which often leads to a “few drinks”, which more often than not, leads to a miserable hangover, which will need some entertainment (or at least a distraction) to soothe it.  Here’s what you’ve got to choose from this weekend:

1. Dear White People Volume 2 (Available from the 4th of May)

The first series of Dear White People was pretty excellent, and here’s why you should watch it if you haven’t already. If you have seen the first series, then you’re probably pretty eagerly awaiting part two.

2. My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman: Tina Fey (Available from the 4th of May)

Let’s not forget all of the stuff that came out at the end of April, either.

All of the Monty Python films, a documentary about the women who were tested in 1961 for spaceflight called Mercury 13, docuseries Bobby Kennedy for President which looks at the influence of Bobby in the 1960s, and plenty of other titles.

If none of those appeal to you, you can always get the free trial of NowTV and binge all of Westworld so that you can catch up with the second series.

Good luck with the hangovers.
