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.
Unless there’s rain in the forecast, your weekend will probably include mostly outdoor activities. Good. That said, if you find yourself in front of a screen and want something new to watch, we recommend Picnic at Hanging Rock, a new 6-episode miniseries on Amazon Prime. Starring Natalie Dormer (Game of Thrones), the series is based on the 1967 Joan Lindsay novel of the same name. Set in 1900 Australia, the tale focuses on a group of girls in a boarding school near Melbourne who wander off and vanish. The few who return don’t remember a thing. It’s haunting, surreal, and full of twists and turns, so if that sounds like your bag, get to watching.
