Most people have had lousy roommates, but Netflix is ​​giving true crime buffs a spotlight on four of the worst of all time. The trailer for this upcoming five-part series introduces one of the all-time worst squatters, con artists, and Netflix’s favorite type of evil: a serial killer.

We won’t spoil the whole story here, but the Blumhouse Television miniseries will reveal more about Dorothea Puente, who preyed on her tenants. We’ve highlighted Worst Roommate Ever as “Netflix’s next big true-crime show,” in part because of Blumhouse’s established reputation for scary movies, with titles Get Out and The Purge under its belt.

Perfect timing here. You can watch Steven Spielberg’s new version of West Side Story just days after co-star Ariana DeBose won a SAG Award for her performance as Anita. The film, which has received huge acclaim from critics (and seven Oscar nominations) is finally coming to streaming just under three months after its December 10 release. Praised as both one of Spielberg’s finest films and arguably an improvement on the original.

Picard season 2 (Paramount Plus)

When to broadcast it: Thursday March 3

Fresh out of (maybe) this Dr. Strange 2 trailer, Patrick Stewart is back as Captain Jean-Luc Picard. And this time he has familiar company. Not only is one of his oldest friends (Whoopi Goldberg as Guinan) back to share a nod, but one of Picard’s most memorable foes is also back to torture him.

Yes, John de Lancie is back as Q, and it looks like he’s bent time again. Now Picard is in 2024, and it looks like he’s going to be judged. The new season of Picard will also feature the return of Brent Spiner, but since he has a beard, he may be playing Dr. Altan Inigo Soong, the son of Noonian Soong, who created Data’s type of androids.

Our Flag Means Death (HBO Max)

When to broadcast it: Thursday March 3

We don’t like HBO Max because of its app (which again crashed at the start of Euphoria’s season 2 finale). We love HBO Max because it continues to deliver inspired programming.

Our Flag Means Death, the latest HBO Max Original, comes to us from executive producer Taika Waititi (whose work on FX’s What We Do In The Shadows inspires confidence). And this time, Waititi has a big presence as the iconic pirate Blackbeard, who is far more action-oriented and comfortable with violence and looting than Stede Bonnet (Rhys Darby), the budding pirate in charge. of their adventure. A comedic prank with a nice pedigree, Our Flag Means Death sounds like a joy.

Buying Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty (HBO Max)

When to broadcast it: Sunday March 6

No offense to TNT, but HBO really knows the drama. And that’s why we’re excited to see this vintage piece on some of the Los Angeles Lakers basketball team’s greatest days.

John C. Reilly stars as Jerry Buss, the man who bought the Lakers in the late 1970s, when such a purchase was far from responsible. But Buss as boss is only part of the story, as the series also tells the story of the rise of Earvin “Magic” Johnson, the man who made the Lakers great again. (They already had Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, but that wasn’t enough.) Directed by Adam McKay (The Big Short and Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy), Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty will have it all, famous Lakers Girls fans – and even Adrien Brody as Pat Riley.

The Adam Project (Netflix)

When to broadcast it: Friday March 11

Netflix’s blockbuster movies aren’t just for the holiday season. The Adam Project finds Ryan Reynolds as Adam, a guy who travels back in time to meet his younger self. And that’s not even a spoiler, it’s the trailer hook. Adam travels back in time with massive technology that will impress his youth, but he also has to deal with his issues with his father (played by Mark Ruffalo). Really cool futuristic weapons, including a glow stick, abound in the trailer above, and the film has a solid cast including Jennifer Garner, Catherine Keener, and Zoe Saldana.

Going Red (Disney Plus)

When to broadcast it: Friday March 11

A not-too-subtle metaphor for puberty and its incredibly hard times when you feel like a beast, Turning Red may remind some audiences of The Incredible Hulk movies. But instead of becoming a solid green rage machine, 13-year-old Mei Lee (voiced by Rosalie Chiang) turns into a giant red panda whenever she gets too excited. And it looks like it’s not just an incident: the Lee family has been dealing with this for generations.

But the best part of the trailer (apart from the use of “It’s Gonna Be Me”), if you ask us, is that Mei’s friends are all incredibly cool with her transformation.

Halo The Series (Paramount Plus)

When to broadcast it: Thursday March 24

Yes, gamers (and non-gamers), we have a Halo TV show. We didn’t see it coming either, except it’s been reported for years and years, feeling like one of those projects doomed to never come out).

For those unaware, Halo is set during a giant war in the future where humanity’s last hope in the war against the aliens known as the Covenant is the Spartan super soldier army. Their most prolific fighter is Master Chief, a warrior whose face has never been revealed…until now, as we’ll encounter actor Pablo Schreiber’s take on Spartan-117.

Set in the “Silver Timeline” – the show will use most of the lore of the game, but differs in its own way – the Halo show seeks to tell a new story in the games that have been making Xboxes sing for years .

Bridgerton season 2

When to broadcast it: Friday March 25

Dear readers, it’s almost time for Bridgerton season 2. At the end of this month, it’ll be time to drop off personal fans and fire up Netflix to binge on the second batch of Bridgerton, like you’re devouring a platter of macaroons. The aspect of the new season that intrigues us most is that since the identity of Lady Whistledown (Penelope Featherington, played by Nicola Coughlan) was revealed at the end of Season 1, we’ll likely see more behind-the-scenes work. who the biggest gossip of his time is up to.

Anthony Bridgerton’s wedding is the focus of the new season, and he’s courting Edwina Sharma (played by Charithra Chandran). His sister Kate, however, seems to be a thorn in this court’s side, as she distrusts him and seems attracted to him as well.

Moon Knight

When to broadcast it: Wednesday March 30

As weird as WandaVision is, Marvel Studios has played it safe for its first Disney Plus shows – giving us TV series after TV series focused on characters we already know (Hawkeye) and love (Loki, Falcon and Winter Soldier). But the Moon Knight trailer showed that the days of “safety” are over. Not only does this show focus on a character new to the MCU (but not new to Marvel Comics fans), but it also looks a bit bolder.

Oscar Isaac plays Marc Spector, a former military man with dissociative identity disorder. A chaotic series of events, however, leaves Spector with a new identity: the Moon Knight, a masked, bandaged vigilante who looks like Marvel’s answer to Batman.

We’re thrilled for Moon Knight, but the voice Isaac uses for Spector sounds like something we should get used to.
