Krutika Mallikarjuna

If you're the kind of person who is still salty over Melisandre's (Nathalie Emmanuel) untimely death on Game of Thrones, then rejoice! Ya girl is back on TV in Hulu's newest show, an adaptation of Four Weddings and a Funeral. I can promise you she doesn't die, and she gets to see her sweet romance through to the end. If you're not a big rom-com fan, though, there are plenty of other great streaming options for you this weekend, including a true crime docuseries and the third season of Dear White People.

These recommendations courtesy of TV Guide are here to help you through your weekend binge. And if you're looking for even more suggestions, head over to TV Guide's Watch This Now! page, which has hand-picked recommendations for all the best shows you can start watching immediately.

1. Four Weddings and a Funeral

I should warn you: If you're a fan of the originalFour Weddings and a Funeral, the TV show won't line up with the movie. Hulu's show, with Mindy Kaling as the driving creative force, has loose connections to the world of Richard Curtis. Starring four American friends who move to London and are wildly unlucky in love, Kaling's version focuses on putting people who aren't normally considered romantic leads front and center.

2. No One Saw a Thing


Sundance's new six-part docuseries, No One Saw a Thing, takes a look at the absolutely wild story of Ken McElroy. Described politely as a bully, the Skidmore, Missouri, native famously shot a grocery store owner after the owner asked McElroy's daughter to return some candy she'd stolen. The store owner survived, but the townsfolk knew from personal experience that McElroy would be acquitted -- just like the last 20 times he was indicted. Sick of his reign of terror (he was known for harassing and intimidating witnesses), the townspeople allegedly got together and shot McElroy in broad daylight. The case would eventually become one of America's most famous unsolved murders despite the fact the identity of McElroy's killer has been an open secret for decades.

3. Dear White People

The third season of Dear White People is definitively its best. Justin Simien is back and his mantra for the new season is growth. Season 3 pulls away from the detail-obsessed mysteries the movie and early seasons were shrouded in to focus on who these young, black, politically active college students are when their rage against the injustices of the world aren't enough to pull them through. Each character is mined for the emotional depth they've always had, and the payoff is worthwhile.
