Happy Friday, streamers! This week brings a lot of great binging choices. From new standup to spooky series, it’s a great October weekend line-up. We take a look at some of the highlights that have arrived over the past few days and roundup all the titles that were added this week.

It’s weekend time and that means streaming! This week is looking a little light on movies, but what is lacking in the film department is definitely made up for with new Netflix Original series.

If you are looking for a shoot-em-up movie, The Night Comes For Us is a good way to go. Violence packed, it’s about a Triad enforcer who comes to odds with his crime family after sparing the life of a young girl. If you’re looking for some mindless popcorn action this is a good way to go.

In the mood for something creepy for Halloween? Netflix’s new series Haunted should do the trick. The series visits people who have had supernatural encounters and recreates them for your spine-tingling delight. Maybe keep a light on when you watch this one.

There are two huge new arrivals in the new season department for Netflix Originals: Daredevil and Making a Murderer. Both have been highly anticipated. Having seen both, I can say they are worth the watch.

Charlie Cox is back after quite some time reprising his role as the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen. This season sees the return of Vincent D’Onofrio who truly embodies his evil character and the bane of Daredevil’s existence. In terms of character development and story, this season far exceeds number two.

Making A Murderer also sees a return after some time. In part two, we see much more of the preparation and break-down of the prosecution’s story. But the real feature here is the aftermath. The toll that the trial, the publicity, the documentary has taken on the participants. It’s a sometimes emotional watch, but very worthy or your queue. After it all, I still don’t know what I believe. But the journey is worth taking.
