New Releases on Netflix UK (May 5th, 2018)

We’re now into May and the Bank Holiday weekend has arrived along with some sunny weather. An extra day just means that there’s more time to indulge in some quality entertainment and we’re going to share with you three recommendations that we think is worth watching. In the lineup this week, 5th May 2018, there’s a total of 108 new titles, which includes 58 new movies, 32 new TV series, 14 new documentaries and four new comedy specials. Our favourites this week are all Netflix Originals.

The first of the three is the new TV series Busted! (2018) which is full of mystery, judgement and intrigue. Each episode holds a new mystery to solve but none of which are as difficult as solving the biggest one of all. This Korean programme has plenty of jokes up its sleeve while the seven detectives do all that they can do find clues and find a resolution. Episodes are released on a Friday and there are currently two episodes available to watch so far – both almost an hour and a half each.

What would you do if the world around you collapsed? What would you do if there was no way back? A deadly virus wiped out most of the Scandinavian population and now there’s only a select few left and hoping for survival. The Rain Season 1 (2018) has come to Netflix UK and focuses on two siblings who find other young survivors. They’re all seeking help, safety and security. They’re also pretty keen to know what happened six years before and why the virus wiped out almost the entire population. There are eight episodes available to watch, all at around 40 minutes each.

You’ve just lost your job. You have no money. You owe a huge amount to people who don’t mess about. What would you do? Forgive Us Our Debts (2018) is all about one man who is under the threat of creditors. In attempt to save himself, he agrees to take a job as a debt collector but that decision was one that needed more thought… Many things can happen to those who make compulsive decisions, and this case is no exception. A deal is a deal and it must be done – whether the consequences are worse than it first seemed or not. If you’re looking for a dark and cut-throat film this weekend, give this one a try.
