Unquestionably the big show of the week is the Sex and The City sequel And Just Like That. Fans of the show will likely have an alright time with it - just get past the first clunker of an episode. Anyone unfamiliar with the show, know that the show isn't made for you. It is for fans of the series to pick up and continue along with. Despite the heavy exposition, they don't provide a clean entry point for new viewers.
Sandra Bullock returns to Netflix with a new film: The Unforgivable. It's about a woman released from prison and isn't a genre film like Bird Box - so don't be expecting this to break any viewership records.
A publicist from Hayu, the dedicated reality show streaming service from NBC Universal, made a point of highlighting the scripted Christmas movie The Housewives of The North Pole. It is the first proper scripted film on the service. Hayu is available in a number of territories outside the US (including India, where it just launched). If you're in the US wanting to see what I'm sure will be a fantastic holiday film, The Housewives of The North Pole is streaming on Peacock.
