Pass the remote! 6 things to watch this week

From guilty pleasure TV and true-crime documentaries to cult comedy and feminist flicks - there's something for everyone in our curated pick of new releases this week.

Love Island Australia (ITV2, 1 Mar)

You know the drill – several scantily clad, sexy singles living it up in a sun soaked villa until they ‘couple up’ and find love, or get booted out. If you’re missing Married at First Sight Australia – this is the perfect replacement for your daily dose of trash TV.

Your Honor (Sky Atlantic, 2 Mar)

In his first lead TV role since Breaking Bad Bryan Cranston plays a New Orleans judge trying to cover up a hit-and-run by his own son in a remake of the hit Israeli show Kvodo. It’s a tense courtroom thriller by former barrister turned screenwriter Peter Moffat, whose TV credits include North Square, Silk and the Bafta-winning Criminal Justice.

Moxie (Netflix, 3 Mar)

Directed by Amy Poehler and based on Jennifer Mathieu’s novel of the same name, this high school bildungsroman (now that’s a winning Scrabble move) follows 16-year-old Vivian who, inspired by her rebellious single mother, decides to call out sexism in her school through creating a ‘zine entitled Moxie. Think Mean Girls, but updated for 2021.

Murder Among the Mormons (Netflix, 3 Mar)

Netflix has a killer roster of true crime documentaries to binge on (see Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes and Don’t F**k with Cats) and its newest addition looks like an equally intriguing watch. The three-parter follows the aftermath of the 1985 Salt Lake City murders in the Mormon community and the criminal mastermind and forger behind them – Mark Hoffman.

Coming 2 America (Amazon, 5 Mar)

After forking out $125 million (yes really) for exclusive rights, the sequel to Eddie Murphy’s cult comedy Coming to America lands on Amazon just in time for your weekend movie night. Set after the events of the first film, the story follows Prince Akeem Joffer (Murphy) as he discovers he has a secret son.

The Glorias (Sky Cinema, 7 Mar)

Premiering at Sundance Festival last year, Julianne Moore, Alicia Vikander, Lulu Wilson and Ryan Keira Armstrong split the role of the feminist icon Gloria Steinem over various stages of her life from her childhood up to her speech at the 2017 Women’s March. It’s an inspiring and captivating watch.
