1. Making a Murderer
Making a Murderer's compelling first season captured America's attention as the true story of how law enforcement, the justice system, and even his family failed Steven Avery by sentencing him to 18 years for the alleged murder of 25-year-old photographer Teresa Halbach. In a case that goes beyond questions of guilt versus innocence, the docuseries shed light on the fact that in many cases justice is not blind, and that the evidence — particularly DNA — can be easily manipulated. The second season moves beyond an examination of the inciting incident and trial to the post-conviction process. Avery's new lawyer, noted for overturning convictions, has to move mountains to come to Avery's defense.
Daredevil Season 3 picks up after Season 1 of The Defenders, which left Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) for dead under a collapsed building with Elektra (Elodie Yung). While all of Matt's friends have spent months mourning him, audiences were blessed with a Defenders post-credit sequence that showed Matt being nursed back to health by a nun. Thus we return to him at his broodiest, alone and wanting to keep it that way. But with the return of Wilson Fisk (Vincent D'Onofrio) and his new righthand man, iconic Marvel villain Bullseye (Wilson Bethel), Matt can't stay hidden for long. The biggest difference in Season 3? Foggy (Elden Henson) and Karen (Deborah Ann Woll) have become equally capable of taking down Fisk in their own ways, so Matt will finally have to learn how to ask for help if he's going to survive this season.
Wanderlust brings the brilliant Toni Collette back to television as a therapist whose marriage is falling apart. After trying and failing to restart a fading sex life, the couple decides to seek what they want outside their marriage while still remaining committed partners. Is dating other people really the answer? You can binge to find out this weekend!
