Binge Guide: What to watch on OTT platforms this weekend
Our pick of the best OTT content for the weekend
The Umbrella Academy (S3)
Fresh off 1963’s doomsday finale, members of the Umbrella Academy have returned to the present, convinced that they successfully prevented the apocalypse and fixed their timeline for good. But a rather astonishing turn of events is right around the corner with the arrival of the Sparrow Academy, which quickly ensues into violence and havoc. Watch as Elliot Page, Aidan Gallagher and the rest of the star-studded cast navigate the challenges of this new reality.
Man vs Bee
Man vs Bee is everything you’d expect from a Rowan Atkinson TV series. Perfect to watch with the whole family, this series features 10 episodes running 10-20 minutes each. Inspired by the Indian film Eega (mixing it up for a change), the show sees Trevor waging a war against a bee while housesitting a luxurious mansion. If animated cartoons serve as an example, we can only imagine the amount of irreparable damage that will be done.
