Because the weather is looking pretty grim.

Let’s be honest.

The weather isn’t supposed to be great this weekend. Met Éireann say it’ll be mainly cloudy with scattered showers so sounds like the perfect weekend for a good Netflix binge. Here’s what’s new to the streaming service:

Unsolved Mysteries 

This much-talked-about series is a sure-fire winner for anyone into their crime and mystery documentaries. Fusing signature elements from the original series with contemporary immersive, character-driven storytelling, the new episodes are rooted in the experiences of ordinary people who have lived the unthinkable. Expect a bit of everything from the trauma of a loved one’s unexplained disappearance or horrific death, to the shock of a bizarre paranormal encounter. Alongside detectives and journalists, family members offer clues, present theories, and identify suspects. Take a look at the trailer here:
