The Diplomat (Season 1)

Number of episodes: 8
Rating: TV-MA
Language: English
Genre: Drama, Thriller

Best known for The West Wing and Grey’s Anatomy, Debora Chan is behind this new political drama headlined by Keri Russell. You’ll be following her character Kate Wyler navigating the worlds of a high-stakes crisis, international politics, and her home life.

Reviews from outlets, released a little earlier in the week, seem strong for the show, and as of the time of publishing, the show is sitting at 8.0 on IMDb.

Nina Metz from the Chicago Tribune called the series “extraordinarily smart,” adding that it’s “best in its class.”

The New York Times generally agreed to say that the show is a “political thriller laced with romance and written, with some success, in an Aaron Sorkinesque high-comic, high-velocity style.”

Better Call Saul (Season 6)

Number of episodes: 13
Rating: TV-MA
Language: English
Genre: Crime, Drama
Cast: Bob Odenkirk, Rhea Seehorn, Jonathan Banks
Writer: Vince Gilligan, Peter Gould

Like being able to watch a show from beginning to end, well, not only can you do it with Breaking Bad on Netflix, but those in the US can finally do it with the sixth and final season of Better Call Saul.

As a licensed show, we covered yesterday that Better Call Saul won’t be on Netflix forever, but the good news is that you have at least four years to watch through the entire series.

Mighty Quest Rogue Palace

Acting as game number 57 in Netflix’s growing arsenal of mobile titles available on both Android and iOS devices is the Ubisoft game Mighty Quest Rogue Palace.

Per the official description of the game, here’s what you can expect:

“Hunt for epic loot. Battle big bosses. Hack and slash through a mad maze, and prepare to die — a lot. Come back stronger, save the kingdom. No pressure!”

This is the second Netflix and Ubisoft game release following Valiant Hearts a little earlier in the year.
