A dramatic comedy by Christopher Miller (21 Jump Street) which offers a sarcastic vision of the mysterious thriller. In the aftermath of a high school reunion, there was murder but also lots of flirting, rekindled old rivalries, and amnesiac levels of drunkenness. Starting with the awkward and sympathetic Aniq (Sam Richardson), Tiffany Haddish’s Detective Danner interviews each partygoer in turn – including Chelsea (Ilana Glazer) and Jamie Demetriou’s Walt. It’s sometimes a little too thrilled with its own vanity, but there’s the making of a line involving Aniq and Zoe (Zoe Chao) and what’s going on with their romantic chemistry.

Get Curious with Jonathan Van Ness

“I still can’t believe dragonflies have two penises.” It’s a crazy world, and in his podcast of the same title, this Queer Eye star explored it in an engaging way. Transferring the formula to TV was the natural next step and the result is totally watchable. Ranging from gender identity to snacks, insect aesthetics to the practicalities of ice dancing, her curiosities are somewhat hit and miss. But he’s funny and easy to warm up to, never pretending he lacks knowledge and asks the right questions. TV like an unusually entertaining Wikipedia binge.

Fans of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK will remember Cherry Valentine, who stepped out into the world as a Gypsy drag queen in season two last year. Cherry was born and brought up as George Ward in the traveling community of North East England. However, George did not feel accepted and moved away, only maintaining contact with his mother. In this documentary, George returns to his roots to see how easily queer and gypsy identities can become compatible. Expect some painful truths and hopefully a touch of redemption too.

A moving documentary following journalist Ashley John-Baptiste as he meets his brother. John-Baptiste grew up in foster care and believed himself to be an only child until he was contacted by his brother in his mid-twenties. The film expands its perspective to show that it’s not all that rare – there’s a shortage of foster families willing to take in more than one child, so it’s not always easy to keep siblings together. . Alongside his own hugely moving journey of discovery, John-Baptiste explores the realities of a cracking system.

Another documentary series that deals with a successful football team with an almost mystical fervor. It explores the ‘life, work and miracles’ of Atlético Madrid manager Diego Simeone and centers on his side’s La Liga triumph in the 2020-21 season. But there’s plenty of room to reflect on Simeone’s career as a renowned tough midfielder, perhaps best remembered in England as an Argentine challenger who played a pivotal role in the elimination decision of David Beckham in the World Cup in 1998. Boo hiss!

What would you do if you were a heartbroken heavy drinker who regularly mixed alcohol with pills and witnessed what could have been a murder? This is the enigma facing Anna (Kristen Bell) whose dismal and repetitive life is interrupted by an apparent homicide on her suburban street. This new series functions as both a mystery and an endearingly silly parody of a pseudo-psychological drama “of a woman driven mad by domesticity.”

South Korea’s latest TV sensation shares a certain brutality with Squid Game – and a plot that revolves around events so bizarre no one in authority will believe they’re happening. In all honesty, if as a police officer you received a phone call from a teenager claiming that his school was overrun by zombies, you could be forgiven for some skepticism. As a result, the handful of non-undead children are on their own – their former classmates and teachers are chasing them and no help comes. Completely stupid; good fun.
