Putting the feet up this weekend? Fancy some rest and relaxation? Netflix is what you need. There's tons of brand new content on the streaming service this weekend, meaning you've the perfect excuse to cancel the plans you didn't want in the first place. 

Here's our top picks:

But Vince's simple life gets complicated fast when his high school fling Priya (Mindy Kaling) unexpectedly drops off their 15-year-old son Michael so he can attend a city school for super-talented kids. How will Vince handle this wildly ambitious and hilariously witty teenager? Well, somehow he'll have to work it out.

But now they're teaming up for the biggest projects of their young careers - getting their bosses to fall in love! Only time will tell whether they strike out...or score a home run.
