5 best shows on Netflix this weekend

Summertime is here, and that calls for some relaxation on the weekends by watching shows on Netflix. So far, the month of June has given us some great new choices on the streamer, and there are more coming to finish the month.

The Netflix Top 10 TV Shows list includes some stellar choices, including Manifest, Sweet Tooth, Lupin, Lucifer and Fresh Fried and Crispy. The Top 10 list doesn’t look much different from last week, with most of the same titles, just different rankings. This bodes well for the shows on the list.

We are just about halfway through 2021, and Netflix has released some amazing features for this year so far. And, the year isn’t over; Netflix has a great lineup of shows with seasons yet to be released this year. 

Black Summer season 2

Fans of the apocalyptic horror Black Summer were excited to finally get the second season’s release this week. It was a long time coming as the first season aired in April of 2019.

The critics are saying the second season outdoes the fantastic first season of the series. The second season of Black Summer is full of undead terror that will keep you glued to the screen. In a world where the undead has taken over in films and TV series, Black Summer gives the viewer a new perspective on the genre.

The first season gave the viewer a look at life a week or so after the outbreak; the new season picks up only a few months after the first season ends. Black Summer brings back chaos and stress to the zombie genre. The action-packed episodes keep the viewer on alert because you can never know what to expect next.

If zombies are your thing, you must check out Black Summer.

Workin’ Moms

I have only recently discovered this one of the shows on Netflix, and I can’t believe someone didn’t tell me about this sooner. Workin’ Moms looks at a group of moms who keeps things real and puts everything out there with no shame.

Workin’ Moms currently has five seasons available to stream, with a sixth expected in winter 2021.

Kate, Anne, Frankie and Jenny each experience different struggles juggling parenthood, friendship, romance, and raising children. The series is a candid look at motherhood and all that goes along with it in a way that makes all of the normal, non-TV moms feel like they might just be doing something right.

Catherine Reitman, Jessalyn Wanlim, Dani Kind and Juno Rinaldi star as Kate, Anne, Frankie and Jenny, respectively, and each character is unique. You really want them in your friend group. The script is drawn from the real-life experiences of Reitman, who is also the creator of the series.

If you need a series to give you huge laughs, this is the one.

Penguin Town

Patton Oswalt narrates the docuseries Penguin Town, which isn’t your typical documentary. This eight-part series follows a special group of African Penguins in Simon’s Town, South Africa.

Oswalt opens with the line, “There are a lot of movies about penguins.” This is true, but this series isn’t the documentary you are used to seeing. Instead of watching them in nature doing penguin things, we get a look into what the locals call “jackass penguins.”

When it’s time for the penguins to lay their eggs, instead of finding a nice quiet spot to nest, they flock to the town to set up camp and hatch and care for their young. They mingle with the townsfolk and tourists, as Simon’s Town is a popular resort town.

Penguin Town follows three sets of penguins, the Bougainviellas, the Newlyweds and Junior. It is an endearing look at penguins in a setting we aren’t used to seeing them in. This is a warm climate, and they live among humans.

This series is a refreshing change from the typical animal documentaries, and Osawlt adds in his comedic flair, making this one to watch with the whole family.

Elite 

The fourth season of Netflix’s Spanish teen drama Elite is now available on the streamer. This series has received critical acclaim, and Rotten Tomatoes has this to say about the series “Elite is highly digestible, technically strong trash TV for anyone with a guilty pleasure palate.”

The series is set in a fictional Las Encinas, which is an elite high school. The storyline centers around three working-class students enrolled via scholarship and their wealthy classmates. The series dives into normal teen drama but also focuses on progressive issues. Critics have stated that Elite is much more than your typical teen drama in that it explores those issues in a new light.

Elite uses flash-forwards and flashbacks to tell the stories making for an exciting ride. The series has been compared to Gossip Girl and Riverdale but with a refreshing twist.

Did I mention there is a murder investigation going on during all the drama? A student is murdered, and while focusing on the teen’s lives, you forget one of them could be the murderer.

The World’s Most Amazing Vacation Rentals

Follow hosts Luis D. Ortiz, Jo Franco and Megan Batoon as they search out The World’s Most Amazing Vacation Rentals. This series is a little different than the normal extravagant places the average person can’t afford. They feature rentals that can accommodate all budgets and all climates.

According to Netflix, this series will take you “From affordable treehouses to exclusive private islands, from unforgettable igloos to gourmet getaways.” The first season will take you worldwide to destinations like Alaska, Bali, Hawaii, Japan, Finland and the Berkshires.

The three hosts are tasked with seeking out different types of rentals. Jo looks for something unique, Megan searches for budget-friendly rentals, and Luis will show the extravagant destinations.

The photography alone is worth checking this of the shows on Netflix out, but you’ll continue watching for the fabulous destinations.

Have a GREAT weekend. Let us know in the comments which shows on Netflix you’re watching this weekend!
