It’s not that there’s nothing on, but we’ll be honest, there was not really anything that caught our attention enough to individually recommend, but here’s some shows which might catch your fancy.
- Affable pop star Demi Lovato like many who practically grew up in the public eye has had moments they wish never happened, and especially that were not broadcast internationally–notably when in 2018 she nearly died of a drug overdose. Bravely, the 28-year-old Disney-actress-turned-pop-star bares her soul about that and other heralded and/or questioned actions (as well as villains who took advantage of her) in the four-part YouTube special Demi Lovato: Dancing with the Devil.
- Not to be confused with the surprise 2014 final film by sci-fi “vanguard” and MST3K favorite Bert I. Gordon, this Secrets of a Psychopath concerns a sensational murder case in Ireland. Architect Graham Dwyer was convicted of the murder of his girlfriend, childcare worker Elaine O’Hara, and with its initial mystery and the reveal of the couple’s immersion in the BDSM community, the crime caught the fancy of the Irish public. This three-part docu-series on Sundance Now extends the intrigue international.
- Discovery+ continues to expand its streaming content from the vast Discovery network of channels. Today’s additions include the true crime mystery Who Killed My Son? and the deep dive into the world of Texas hog traders exquisitely titled Pig Royalty.
- South African stand-up Loyiso Gola has been touring since 2002 and releasing comedy specials (at least in his own country) since 2007, but Loyiso Gola: Unlearning marks his first Netflix hourlong. He’s likeable yet cutting, and very, very funny. What else is there to say?
