Our Top-Rated Video-Streaming Services

One Day (Netflix)

Are we entering a new renaissance of rom-coms? This series is more rom than com but comes with some funny bits, as two graduates come together every year on the same day to reconnect. It’s a big upgrade from the movie version from a decade-plus ago.

Abbott Elementary: Season 3 (ABC on Hulu)

The best sitcom on TV returns after the strike hiatus. Taking place at an inner-city school, it’s a show with heart and plenty of discomfort comedy in the same mockumentary mode as The Office.

The Halo: Season 2 (Paramount+)

The second season of the show based on the incredibly popular series of Xbox games is back to once again repeatedly remove the helmet of star Pablo Schreiber, despite the fact that in the game that never happened. This is not the way.

Cat Person (Hulu)

The New Yorker short story Cat Person took the internet by storm in late 2017, and now that story of pure toxic masculinity is a movie.

The Marvels (Disney+)

Earlier this week, Marvel’s biggest “flop” film (this flick is only a flop compared to other Marvel movies) finally debuted on Disney+. If you like Marvel, then you’ll like this—especially Ms. Marvel getting to meet her hero, Captain Marvel. It’s a fun movie overall and doesn’t deserve the bad-mouthing.

Upgraded (Prime Video)

Another new rom-com with a Devil Wears Prada vibe: a young woman sent to London gets an airline upgrade, which turns into a meet-cute with a rich guy and inevitably a case of mistaken identity taken to the extreme. (Not to be confused with the 2018 hyper-violent movie Upgrade, playing on Max.)

Marvel’s Spidey and His Amazing Friends: Season 3 (Disney+)

With a six-year-old superhero fanatic at home, I’m required by law to mention that this ultra-kid-friendly version of Peter Parker where he teams up with his spider-pals Miles Morales and Gwen Stacy (aka Spidey, Spin, and Ghost Spider) is back with fresh episodes and more Marvel heroes as guest stars.

Couple to Throuple (Peacock)

A dating show on a remote tropical island? It must be exactly the same as all the others. Not exactly. In this one, established couples explore the world of polyamory to see if it works for them.

Lover, Stalker, Killer (Netflix)

Then there’s a cautionary tale in the form of a documentary about Dave Kroupa, a man who dove into online dating and unethical nonmonogamy. It’s a story that not everyone involved survives.

They Called Him Mostly Harmless (Max)

A body found in the woods turns into a mystery to be solved by amateur internet sleuths. The first step is solving who he is. The second is determining if he was mostly harmless or partly harmful.

Puppy Bowl XX (Animal Planet, Discover, Discovery+, Max, TBS, and truTV)

For the 20th time during the big game on Sunday, you can catch the ultimate in adorable counter-programming as tiny canines play, sometimes even with a football.
