Your weekly guide to the new and returning TV shows ready for you to stream right now.
Here’s what you need to know for this weekend:
The only essential show for you to watch this weekend is the interactive Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. It’s a bit different to Black Mirror: Bandersnatch in that the interactivity is more about joke delivery than plot divergence. To watch it all will take about 4-5 hours. Wenlei Ma has put in the work and has a really solid article explaining it all over at news.com.au.

PODCAST: Episode 061
I've been advised to tell you by the Always Be Watching legal team that this podcast episode passes the legal definition of "too much show".
This week Dan hits the streets of Paris and plays his jazz flute along with new Netflix drama The Eddy. Chris drops $10k on a verse that lets us know what new rap-industry comedy Dave is all about. Dan and Chris both tsk their fingers at Jerry Seinfeld's disappointing standup special 23 Hours To Kill. And they both gush over the new Ghost In The Shell: SAC_2045 anime series. And let me tell you: they did not expect that to be the case.
Oh, and there's a round of TV trivia at the end of the episode.
