If you feel like... watching docos

Cheer

Netflix’s oddly gripping doco follows a handful of students at Navarro College's cheer squad as they prepare for the upcoming National Cheerleading Championship.

The New Hack That Lets You Watch Netflix With All Your Friends While Self-Isolating

While the spread of coronavirus is temporarily shutting down cinemas around the globe, there’s still a way you can watch your favourite films and TV shows with a bunch of friends -- without the risk of infection.

If you feel like... something dark

The Outsider

Based on Stephen King’s novel of the same name this series is slooooww, but hey, you’ve got nothin’ but time. When a man is arrested for the brutal murder of a young boy a hardened detective faces an open and shut case. Or so he thought. New evidence emerges that indicates the suspect was in a completely different state, begging the question, can a person be in two places at once, or is something far more sinister at play?

Available on Foxtel Now

Hannibal

Based on the characters from Thomas Harris’ Red Dragon and Hannibal novels, the series focuses on Will Graham, played by Hugh Dancy, and his relationship with Dr Hannibal Lecter. The pair are an unlikely duo that seem to have a deep understanding of one another, but could also be each other’s undoing.

Available on Stan

Dark

The disappearance of a young child triggers a mystery that doesn’t ask where the boy went -- but when. You have to really pay attention to this German series -- not only to read the subtitles but because it spans four generations, multiple points in time and has multiple actors playing the same character in different times. It’s twisted, it’s gripping and it is one of those deeply underrated shows you’ll wish you had heard about earlier.

A handful of folks all move into a building together where they can only communicate via a social media app called the Circle. With some contestants playing an honest game, The Circle is rife with catfishing, white lies and a little harmless flirting -- anything to become popular, right?
