5 New Additions To Netflix That Are Worth A Watch This Weekend

There's something about the summer months that make the week seem even longer than normal.

Even if you love your job, the strain of the 9-5 can take its toll and there's no cure like a quiet night in with a heap of nice food and something decent on the telly.

Netflix has been killing it with original content recently and even if you've seen all the big ones, there's a few more than may have escaped your attention.

The Keepers

From director Ryan White comes The Keepers, a riveting seven-part
documentary series about the unsolved murder of a Baltimore nun and
the horrific secrets and pain that linger nearly five decades after
her death.

The series opens with the story of Sister Cathy Cesnik, a beloved
nun and Catholic high school teacher in Baltimore who went missing on
November 7 in 1969. Nearly two months later, her body was found –
and, to this day, her murder remains unsolved.

Through conversations with dozens of friends, relatives,
journalists, government officials and Baltimore citizens, White
pieces together a story that goes beyond the death of a schoolteacher
to encompass clergy abuse, repressed memories and institutions that
he says “at best, dropped the ball over the last 45 years – and,
at worst, covered it up.”

Sense8

Sense8 is centred around eight characters from different parts of
the world, who experience a violent vision, and soon find themselves
mentally connected by the experience. They become connected, able to
see and talk to each other as though they were in the same place,
with access to each other's deepest secrets.

Not only must the eight adapt to this new ability and to each
other, they must figure out why their lives are now in jeopardy. In
Season 2, dark forces continue to track the cluster of eight
connected characters. The sensates will learn more about BPO, the
secret organisation searching for their cluster and others like them,
and will work to protect themselves from this organisation that is
out to hunt and kill them.

Tracy Morgan: Staying Alive

He’s back! Tracy Morgan proves a coma can’t keep a good joke
down, wasting no time taking on the car accident that nearly claimed
his life. 

The show is recorded in front of a sold-out crowd at the
landmark Count Basie Theatre in New Jersey and see Morgan cleverly
tackle recovery, the trials of family and getting a second shot at
life and marriage.

The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

The
third season of this cult comedy has arrived on Netflix and is a
great shout if you're looking for some comic relief this week. 

For
those unfamiliar, the show tells the story of Kimmy (Ellie Kemper)
who decides to reclaim her life and start over in New York City after
living in a cult for fifteen years.

Blame!

Blame! is set in the distant future where what’s left of the
human race resides within the Megastructure, a vast and dangerous
labyrinth that has grown wild and out of control.

Thrown into this world is the mysterious Killy, a strange
individual who is on a quest to bring civilisation back from the
brink of oblivion. The series debuts globally on Netflix this
weekend.
