Here is your Netflix binge-list for the week, fresh from the Australian servers! This week’s highlights include new episodes of Black Mirror, season 2 of the fantastical black comedy Happy!, Clarence Avan biopic The Black Godfather and the thrilling cop drama End Of Watch.
Read on for everything coming to the service for the week of June 3 to June 9.
The most noteworthy release this week is Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror Season 5. There are three new episodes: the social-media focused Smithereens, the virtual-reality video game drama Striking Vipers and the Miley Cyrus-starring Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too. (We’ve seen all three and they’re well worth a watch, particularly if you prefer the less dark episodes.)
On the third-party movie front, we recommend End of Watch, American Made and Constantine. We’re also morbidly curious to see Mortdecai starring Johnny Depp – it’s one of the worst-reviewed movies of all time.
Here are the official synopses and trailers for each film and TV show.
