If you didn’t experience the height of British soccer — or football, as most of the world calls it — superstar David Beckham’s career in the moment, it’s hard to comprehend just how famous he was. Four-part documentary Beckham dives into every detail, from growing up in a working-class family in London, honing his athletic talent, his record-breaking career on the field and the many tabloid headlines. This is a must-watch for sports fans, but, to be totally honest, I’m really just in it to learn more about his relationship with Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham — according to Netflix, the filmmakers have been “granted unprecedented access” to the entire family.

Everything Now

Now that Sex Education has wrapped its run, there’s definitely a void to fill in the funny-yet-poignant-YA-dramedy-that-speaks-to-multiple-generations slot. Everything Now looks like it could be ready to step in. The British series follows Mia (Sophie Wilde), a teen who has spent months in recovery for an eating disorder. Now that she’s out, she’s determined to make up for precious lost time, and draws up a bucket list of typical teen experiences she wants to get through ASAP.

Lupin (Part 3)

Lupin is slick, sexy, clever and thrilling — so everything you could possibly ask for from a heist drama. Now back for a third part, the French series picks up not long after where we left off. Gentleman thief Assane Diop (Omar Sy) has been framed for murder, making him the most wanted man in the country and placing an insane amount of pressure and attention on his ex-wife and teenage son. Assane is still on the run, but that can’t stop him from doing what he does best: robbing fancy places. However, mysterious people from his past soon resurface, and his cleverly laid plans may no longer be enough to protect his loved ones.

Fair Play

Daphne, understandably, did not have very much to do in season two of Bridgerton, which is why I’m happy to see actor Phoebe Dynevor step into a very different role. In psycosexual thriller Fair Play, the Brit stars opposite Alden Ehrenreich as coworkers at a cutthroat hedge fund. Their secret? The pair are in a pretty serious relationship (they’ve just gotten engaged) and no one at the office has the slightest clue. But when one half of the couple gets an unexpected promotion, their dynamic shifts significantly, putting their relationship — and careers — at risk.

The Fall of the House of Usher

At this point, it doesn’t feel like Halloween unless there’s a new Mike Flanagan (he’s the filmmaker behind titles like Gerald’s Game and The Haunting of Hill House) show or movie for horror fans to obsess over. This time around, it’s The Fall of the House of Usher, a miniseries inspired by the gothic works of Edgar Allan Poe. The show also has some light Succession vibes — with a lot more death and gore — as it follows the family behind a corrupt pharmaceutical company whose patriarch is forced to confront his past when the heirs to his fortune start dying one by one. Carla Gugino, Bruce Greenwood, Zach Gilford, Carl Lumbly, T’Nia Miller, Rahul Kohli and Mark Hamill are among the ensemble cast.

The trailer to Bodies begins, “You’re not the first detective to discover this body.” I don’t know about you, but that’s more than enough to guarantee I’ll be watching this British sci-fi crime series. Adapted from Si Spencer’s graphic novel of the same name, the plot kicks off in the present day, when a London detective sergeant finds a dead man naked in the street. As she digs into her investigation, it becomes clear that the case runs parallel to three others in different timelines: 1890, 1941 and 30 years in the future.

Many of us have childhood dreams about being famous — most of us don’t actually try to make those dreams come true. Executive produced by Daddy Yankee, Neon is about just that, tracking an aspiring reggaeton star and his best friends as they move to Miami to try and carve out their own spots in the music industry.

I will watch pretty much any romance involving a famous person and “normie” falling in love (hi, Notting Hill!), so I’m a very easy mark for Doona! The Korean series follows Lee Doo-Na (played by the immensely popular Bae Suzy), the main singer in a popular group who suddenly retired. Now, she spends most of her time at a share house located near a university, and rarely ever leaves. But when Lee Won-Joon (Yang Se-Jong) moves in and the chemistry kicks into high gear, both of them may end up saying goodbye to their status quo.

Pain Hustlers

Emily Blunt, Chris Evans and Catherine O’Hara in the same movie? Yes please. The trio star in the inspired-by-true-events crime drama Pain Hustlers, which is about a blue-collar single mom Liza, who gets involved in pharmaceutical sales and is set on a dangerous and ethically dubious path. The deeper she gets into the company’s scheme, the more urgent it becomes for her to make a decision about the kind of person she wants to be.

Yellow Door: ’90s Lo-fi Film Club

If you’re a fan of Bong Joon-ho films like Parasite, or of Korean cinema and TV in general, consider Yellow Door: ’90s Lo-fi Film Club essential viewing. The charming documentary looks back at the emergence of popular film in South Korea as campus movie clubs gave young adults the chance to seriously study and develop talent in filmmaking. Director Bong was just one member of such clubs, as was the documentarian, Lee Hyuk-rae, and the two (among others) offer fascinating insight into the era.
