Can you feel it? Autumn is finally here! I don’t care if it only lasts for 2 days, I’m taking the chill in the air and enjoying it with everything I have in me. It will probably be 90 degrees again next week but for right now, let’s pull out a pair of fluffy socks and really revel in serene streaming. I really want you to get in your most comfortable chair, light something that smells like leaves, string up some fairy lights, and binge. That’s fall.

Below are my picks for the week. As with each list, I have seen them all and would personally recommend them.

For your convenience, a full list of the titles added this week is at the end of this article. To keep up with new additions be sure to follow our What’s New page, updated daily.

‘Follow This’ Part 2 is streaming now on Netflix.


Norsemen: Season 2 Netflix Original

This Netflix Original show has not gotten its proper dues. It is quite funny and Netflix should be marketing it as such. It’s about the residents of an 8th-century Viking village and their lives as they experience political rivalry, social change, and innovations that upend their culture and way of life.


Chef’s Table: Volume 5 Netflix Original

This show is absolutely stunning and this new season doesn’t disappoint. The visuals, the photography, is so exquisite it sets a new standard for foodie porn. This new season brings four new culinary geniuses. We not only get to experience the food but the incredible stories behind it.


20 Feet From Stardom

This award-winning film shines a light on the people behind the main microphone. Focusing on the backup singers that make hits a reality, this movie presents interviews with the artists who know that the people behind the scenes make the magic happen. Starring Darlene Love (Lethal Weapon movies), Judith Hill, Merry Clayton, Lisa Fischer, Táta Vega, and Jo Lawry, among many others it’s a fascinating look inside.
