A big weekend for streaming with not only the return of a bunch of well liked series, but there's also the long-awaited Friends reunion special. You might also want to check out Eden, an original anime series made for Netflix. And if you're feeling flush with cash, you can buy the film Cruella to stream on Disney+ for AUS$34.99 (US$29.99) while it plays in cinemas.
Just a heads up - it isn't streaming yet (it starts NEXT Friday), but keep your eyes open for new Netflix drama Sweet Tooth. I've seen the first few episodes and it is an absolute delight of a show.
In Treatment (s04), The Chi (s04), Mr Inbetween (s03), Duncanville (s02), Black Monday (s03), The Bold Type (s05), Ragnarok (s02), The Kominsky Method (s03), Lucifer (s05 - Part 2)
