3 great TV shows to watch on Netflix this week

USAJessica Biel does some of her best work to date in USA’s ‘The Sinner,’ now available on Netflix.

We’re in the middle of the peak TV era, which means that there’s more TV than there is time.

Thankfully we’ve made this easier. We know what it’s like making huge decisions like what TV show to start on Netflix, so every week we gather a list of three shows we highly recommend.

Here, you’ll find shows you can finish quickly, and some you can get started on. We mix shows that have recently come onto Netflix with some old favourites you might have not known were available.

From USA’s murder mystery “The Sinner” to The CW’s sometimes teen soap but mostly murder mystery “Riverdale,” here are some great TV shows you can binge on Netflix this week.


“The Sinner”

USA

Seasons: 1

Episodes: 8

“The Sinner” masterfully unfolds a mystery that is nearly impossible to figure out. Jessica Biel (in her best performance to date) suddenly stabs and kills a man on the beach. Throughout the series, secrets about her past are revealed in every episode. These secrets will leave you constantly changing your mind about all of the characters. This series was made for summer binge-watching, and has a solid ending that makes season two, which will feature a new story starring Carrie Coon, more promising.


“Riverdale”

The CW

Seasons: 2

Episodes: 35

Want something to watch while you cook or clean? If you’re into glossy, cheesy but compelling teen drama that doesn’t require much brain power, The CW’s “Riverdale” is perfect for you. The characters are based on the Archie comics (Archie, Betty, Veronica, and many more) but they’re in a modern setting, with lots of murder. Seriously. There is so much murder on this show, especially in its very bloody second season.


“Wild Wild Country”

Netflix

Seasons: 1

Episodes: 6

“Wild Wild Country” tells a wild story from United States history and it has many jaw-dropping moments throughout every episode that you won’t believe. You could watch an episode or two every night, but it’s so enticing that you might get addicted and watch the entire thing in one sitting.
