Our recommendations for the week’s best TV series and movies available on streaming platforms span Disney+, HBO Max (US), Hulu (US), Now TV (UK), All4 (UK), ITV (UK), Netflix, Peacock (US), Apple TV and Prime Video.
Starting today, our weekly recommendation corner is moving to Mondays with titles to watch throughout the week. We’ll be formatting a fit differently this time as well, with titles for each day of the week!
First, I’d like to shout out Godmothered and The Undoing this week.
Premiering on Disney+ on 4 December, Godmothered looks to be a thematic crossover of Enchanted and Elf, which sees Jillian Bell as a trademarked-by-Disney Fairy Godmother going into the “real world” to help her non-fairy goddaughter(?) do something. If it’s anything like Enchanted, it’ll satisfyingly poke fun at common Disney tropes whilst having a pretty cliched (yet nonetheless palatable) story and a good treat for the family.
Shifting gears away from Disney, HBO through their Max service has served some absolute gems and the one I’d like to highlight is The Undoing. This stars Nicole Kidman in yet another awful, toxic HBO marriage. The story is intriguing and follows her and her husband after the spotlight is shone on them when a parent at their son’s school is murdered. If this sounds a little bit like Big Little Lies, it’s probably because not only is this too based off a book, it’s also adapted for TV by the same show runner. I’ve binged all 5 episodes thus far and I’m looking forward to the grand finale.
