From the highly anticipated new season of You, to the unique story of 1960s soap star Noele Gordon, there really is a lot to sink your teeth into this weekend.

Here are our picks of what to watch.

You (Season 4)

What: Buckle up. Netflix's highly anticipated stalker drama is back for another season.

If you haven't heard of You, here's a quick run down. The psychological thriller is known for some incredibly out-there plotlines, bordering on ridiculousness, but it's completely addictive. Trust us, stop reading immediately and block out the next 30 hours to catch up.

The unique element of You is its ability to reinvent what it is every season. Season 1 started off as a traditional psychological thriller, but by the time we get to Season 3, the show's main character and serial stalker Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley) is now married to a fellow stalker, each stalking each other until they fell in love.

Season 4 takes yet another drastic and outlandish turn, now presented as a whodunnit, set in England. Joe now lives under his new identity as Jonathan Moore, a university English professor who develops an interest in Kate, the girlfriend of his obnoxious fellow professor Malcolm, who lives in the flat across from him.

But when Joe receives a series of anonymous texts from an alleged killer, it appears he might now be the one who is being stalked.

The show also has a remarkable ability to tell relatable real-world stories (despite the outlandish plot), in a way that makes the show feel smarter than it actually is. Reinventing any show always risks alienating fans who come to a show with at least some expectation of what it is. You's latest relocation to the UK and dramatic shift in genre and tone definitely put this at risk of jumping the shark.

But don't take our word for it, give it a watch and see if you love it as much as the previous three seasons.

When: Season 4 Part 1 is now streaming, with Part 2 streaming March 9. Stream all episodes of Seasons 1-3 now.

Where: Netflix.


What: Noele (or Nolly to her friends) was a legend in her own lifetime. As flame-haired widow Meg Richardson in the long-running 1960s English soap opera Crossroads, she was one of the most famous people in Britain.

Then, in 1981, at the height of the show's success and the peak of Nolly's fame, she was axed without ceremony, without warning, and with no explanation.

With the boss's words "all good things must come to an end" ringing in her ears, Noele Gordon found herself thrown out of the show that was her life for over 18 years.

Based on the real-life of Noele Gordon, Helena Bonham Carter takes on the lead role. The series is written and created by It's A Sin, Doctor Who and Queer As Folk icon Russell T. Davis.

The series runs for three episodes and is fun, entertaining, heartbreaking and strangely easy to watch.
