What have we got on our Weekend Schedule this week? We’ll be listening to our Drive Home Playlist, catching up on some TV shows that have been talked about in the office, and we’ll be nipping to the cinema for the latest and greatest films!

The Expanse

Ignore, for a second, that this show is set in the solar system and has strong sci-fi influences. This show doesn’t focus on the glamorous side of the usual space-faring TV shows, instead choosing to focus on darker, political aspects of humanity’s future. Humans have colonised the solar system and Mars has become an independent military power. Rising tensions between Earth and Mars have put them on the brink of war. Against this backdrop, a hardened detective and a rogue ship’s captain come together to investigate the case of a missing young woman. The investigation leads them on a race across the solar system that could expose the greatest conspiracy in human history.

If you need any other reason to watch this show, it’s that it’s basically Game of Thrones in space. One of the authors of the books that this show is based on is even George R R Martin’s assistant.

Where to watch: Netflix

Weekend Playlist - 11 November

Another playlist for you to listen to over the weekend. We’ve picked some great tracks from the past and mixed them up with chart-toppers of today. Maroon 5, Mumford & Sons, Avicii and more! There’s something for everyone.

Doctor Strange

Okay, we’ll admit that this sounds like Marvel’s weirdest movie to date, but Benedict Cumberbatch plays a former neurosurgeon who embarks on a journey of healing only to be drawn into the world of the mystic arts.

Someone described it as Inception in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Colour us intrigued.

Where to watch: Local Cinema

Westworld

Our heads are still spinning from the last episode we watched, but we’ll be catching up on Westworld over the weekend. What is going on!?

I guess we’ll have to keep watching to find out. Please don’t end on a cliffhanger… please don’t end on a cliffhanger…

Where to watch: Sky Atlantic

That should keep us busy until Monday! Have a very relaxing weekend!
