ABW TV Guide: All the new & returning TV to watch this weekend (29 Nov-1 Dec 2019)
Weekly guide compiled by Dan Barrett
Martin Scorsese’sThe Irishman has debuted on Netflix. It goes without saying, but it’s pretty good. I don’t think it’s one of his best movies, but I struggle to think of anything you should be watching on Netflix this weekend ahead of the film. It’s worth your time.
But that 3.5 hour runtime is going to kill a whole lot of couch viewing.
If you’re looking for a movie to see at the cinema, last weekend I caught Ford Vs Ferrari and had such a great time with it. I’m not a car guy, but it had such a wonderful energy to it. If it’s still playing on a huge screen cinema near you, definitely consider it.
If you’re looking for a new series, the M Night Shyamalan-produced series Servant debuts on Apple TV+. Reviews have mostly been good. I haven’t watched it yet, but plan to check it out tonight.
