The weekend is upon us - though admittedly it has lost much of its significance, given there's no friends to meet, sports to watch or pubs to frequent.
Considering that all forms of entertainment beyond our four walls are now forbidden, Netflix has never had a more important role to play, and it's stepping up to the plate today (28 March) by dropping season six of Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
New this weekend...
Today: Black Lightning s3
Tomorrow: Ozark s3
Saturday: Brooklyn Nine Nine s6

Yes, that's 18 episodes of cop-based comedy to tide you over - enough to last you a fair while in normal circumstances, though you'll be forgiven in the current situation if you've completed it by Monday.
The series was originally released in January 2019, with the first episode of season seven having aired in the UK on E4 on last Thursday (26 March).
Episodes one and two of season seven are already available to watch on All 4, so if you really do smash through season six on Netflix then you've got the first two episodes of season seven waiting for you too.

If Brooklyn Nine-Nine ain't really your cup of tea, then perhaps Ozark might be. The third season of the crime drama series was released yesterday (Friday) and the streaming service recommends it to all those who enjoyed Breaking Bad - which is pretty much everyone who watched Breaking Bad.
The series follows financial planner Marty Byrde (Jason Bateman) and his wife Wendy (Laura Linney) as they relocate from Chicago to Missouri after a money laundering scheme backfires. In order to repay a Mexican drug cartel, Marty then sets up a bigger money laundering operation in the Ozarks - a mountainous region covering the southern half of Missouri.
And voila, you've got the premise for three season's worth of drama right there. Oh, and on top of all this you've got the subtext of marital discord to sink your teeth into too.
Alternatively, if you haven't watched Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness, you really must. It was released last Friday and has been entertaining and baffling viewers in equal measure in the week since. Truly, the show more than delivers on its promise of murder, mayhem and madness.
Honestly, just watch it. You won't regret it.
