My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman 

The hit Netflix talk show is particularly popular this week due to David's long-awaited interview sit down chat with Kim Kardashian. In the episode, Kim discusses some of the most personal moments of her life, including the traumatic robbery in Paris and her family connections to OJ Simpson. It is most definitely worth the watch.

The Queen's Gambit

Why not try The Queen's Gambit this weekend?

"Haunted by her personal demons and fuelled by a cocktail of narcotics and obsession, Beth transforms into an impressively skilled and glamorous outcast while determined to conquer the traditional boundaries established in the male-dominated world of competitive chess." Sounds amazing, right? 

Unsolved Mysteries Volume Two 

This cold case series is back for round two of strange or unexplained happenings, and just like with volume one, we are totally obsessed. From young women murdered in hotel rooms with absolutely no ID and no one looking for them to a former White House aide being found dead in a landfill, there are some haunting tales which we hope that there will be answers to one day.

This true-crime documentary is a terrifying look into the investigation of Michael Peterson, a crime novelist who was accused of killing his wife Kathleen by pushing her down the stairs, an act he vehemently denies. Although the show came out a while ago, Netflix now has brand new episodes to air alongside the original series with updates on the case, and where Michael is now.
