TV Guide: What to Watch This Week 31/10/22
New releases you need to see, and why you don’t need the cinema to have Harry Styles on your screen
-Monday 31st October-
The White Lotus, Now TV
Following rave reviews, The White Lotus is back with a second season this week. If you haven’t seen the first season, it looks like it could stand apart from season one because the characters are mostly different and the setting has changed (Jennifer Coolidge is back though). If you want a bit more context to The White Lotus before the drama unfolds, you might want to do some bingeing first though.

-Thursday 3rd November-
The manager at the last remaining Blockbuster store is fighting to keep it open as well as keeping his staff happy. Randall Park and Melissa Fumero are leading this workplace comedy series which we think will bring you plenty of nostalgia as well as lots of laughs. It’s looking a little like Superstore if that’s your sort of thing.

Shantaram, Apple TV+
A recommendation from one LN’s designers, we’ve added Shantaram to our long list of series to binge. Based on the internationally bestselling novel by Gregory David Roberts, Shantaram follows a fugitive (Newcastle’s Charlie Hunnam with a questionable accent) looking to get lost in vibrant and chaotic 1980s Bombay. After falling for an intriguing woman, he must choose between freedom or love.
