Wondering what to watch this weekend? This week we have the 'Sex Education' crew back to class and some spooky options for TV-watching and podcast-listening.
Sex Education: Season 4 - Netflix
Picked by Senior Editor Dina Ross
This is the show I've been waiting for this month! I can't believe I haven't mentioned Sex Education as a must-watch in prior columns, but if you like a laugh-out-loud comedy and are fine with NSFW humor, put this on your viewing schedule. It's the final season of this Netflix original. The teens are back for a final season of humor that's probably too close to regular teen life than we would like to believe. The ensemble cast includes stars like Gillian Anderson, Asa Butterfield, Emma Mackey and Ncuti Gatwa. So if you haven't begun this series, it's time to start, and if you've been anxiously awaiting the final season, enjoy!
The Other Black Girl - Hulu
Picked by Lawrence Banton
Spooky season is just around the corner so why not get in the holiday spirit with a thriller? Hulu's The Other Black Girl is a ten-episode series that follows an aspiring book editor who is working her way up the ranks of a controversial publisher, where she happens to be the only Black employee – until a new hire comes along. Right out of the gate you can tell something is wrong with the new girl – maybe something even insidious. This series gets into occults, spirits and witchcraft with twists and turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat and it's topped off with a plot twist that suggests a second season could be on the horizon.
