Speaking of quality, we are going to be picking our three titles from this week, in order to highlight them individually and give you an idea where to start watching.

This week welcomes to return of a much loved Netflix original ‘Orange is the New Black’ who’s fifth season just debuted on Netflix.

Our next choice for this week is the 2016 DC film ‘Suicide Squad’. The film is based around the DC villains who are all recruited by the Government as a last resort powerful squad. The movie has an all-star cast including Will Smith, Jarad Leto and Margot Robbie and won an Oscar despite the mixed reviews it received after release. Well if you never went and saw this title at the theaters now’s your chance to sit back and stream it right to your living room.

Our final choice is the newly released Netflix original titled ‘Shimmer Lake’, which is a Crime drama that follows 3 three small-town criminals who attempt to pull off a bank heist in a little rural American Town.
