Ah the weekend is finally here. That time of the week where some of us turn into gym bunnies, while others morph into hiberating couch potatoes. 

If you're the latter, there's tons of new content to Netflix this weekend that will keep you entertained. (Once Graham Norton is over, of course. Check out the incredible line up for that HERE.)

Mindhunter (Series 1) 

Mindhunter revolves around two FBI agents in the 1970's, who interview serial killers, in order to understand how their minds work. 

It's a ten-part series, which is based on a book by Mark Olshaker and John E. Douglas called Mind Hunter: Inside FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit. John Douglas is a former FBI agent. He has interviewed notorious serial criminals like Ted Bundy and Charles Manson to try and get into the mind of a criminal. 

The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson 

David France’s The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson, is a deeply compelling look at the murder of a transgender legend, known as “the Rosa Parks of the LGBT movement.”

The powerful, haunting film is France’s follow-up to his Academy Award® nominated How to Survive a Plague. The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson is presented by Public Square Films; Joy A. Tomchin and Sara Ramirez (Grey’s Anatomy) served as executive producers; L.A. Teodosio produced.

Riverdale (Season 2, Episode 1)

In the first season of Riverdale, the town of Riverdale was reeling from the recent, tragic death of high school golden boy Jason Blossom. The summer’s events made all-American teen Archie Andrews realize that he wants to pursue a career in music, but his fractured friendship with writer Jughead Jones, and singer Josie McCoy’s focus on her own band (the soon-to-be world-famous Pussycats) left him without a mentor.
Meanwhile, girl-next-door Betty Cooper was not quite ready to reveal her true feelings for Archie, even though there was an undeniable spark between new student, Veronica Lodge and her crush, Archie. And then there’s Cheryl Blossom, Riverdale’s Queen Bee who’s happy to stir up trouble amongst Archie, Betty and Veronica, while keeping secrets of her own. And the parents have their own hidden truths as well.
Riverdale may look like a quiet, sleepy town, but there are dangers in the shadows.
