1983-Netflix

With cable, Netflix, and internet options, finding the best thing to watch during your downtime is difficult. Instead of flipping through menus all weekend and settling on nothing, turn to What to Watch This Weekend, a series in which we give you our pick for the best new show or movie available.

Netflix has scoured the globe for interesting content to add to its lineup and that search has lead them to the Polish series 1983, which hits the streaming service today. The thriller should appeal to fans of hypothetical/alt-history shows like The Man in the High Castle, as it imagines a conspiracy in Poland that kept The Iron Curtain standing longer than it did. As long as you’re cool with subtitles, you’re in for a treat. Link
