You've heard about it - but who actually carries it?

Squid Game on Netflix
Hundreds of cash-strapped players accept a strange invitation to compete in children's games. Inside, a tempting prize awaits with deadly high stakes.s survival game that has a whopping 40-million-dollar prize at stake.
You on Netflix
A dangerously charming, intensely obsessive young man goes to extreme measures to insert himself into the lives of those he is transfixed by.
In the face of complaints from the trans community, Netflix is defiantly leaving this last of Chappelle's Netflix specials up and online. Does he go too far, or is this an example of cancel culture run amok?
Maid on Netflix
A single mother who turns to housekeeping to barely make ends meet as she battles against poverty, homelessness, and bureaucracy.
Documentary about The Beatles featuring unseen in-studio footage that was shot in early 1969. Directed by Peter Jackson. Hits Disney+ on Thursday, November 25.

 
New shows and movies we can't wait to watch -- but aren't available to stream in Canada

Dune on HBO Max
For better or worse (better if you are director Denis Villeneuve) the only way to watch Dune in Canada is in the theatre. Unlike in the U.S., where it is streaming on HBO Max as well as in theatres, here at home Crave has no deal with HBO Max for theatrical releases.
“Feature adaptation of Frank Herbert's science fiction novel, about the son of a noble family entrusted with the protection of the most valuable asset and most vital element in the galaxy.“
Debuting this month after a full-year delay, the third season of Ryan Murphy's American Crime Story anthology is set during the later years of the Bill Clinton administration and focuses on the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
“This is another "FX on Hulu" show in the U.S., which means it runs on FX on TV here in Canada, but might be available to us streamers on Disney's Star soon after its debut.“
Y: The Last Man on FX Canada
Set in a world in which a cataclysmic event has wiped out every male on Earth (except one), leaving a planet inhabited by women. Unfortunately this is an FX on Hulu show, and will only be available to stream in Canada for those who subscribe to FX on Cable TV. Oct 17: The show has been cancelled after one season.
“Based on DC Comics' acclaimed series by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra, Y: The Last Man traverses a post-apocalyptic world in which a cataclysmic event decimates every mammal with a Y chromosome but for one cisgender man and his pet monkey. The series follows the survivors in this new world as they struggle with their efforts to restore what was lost and the opportunity to build something better.“
Debuting Aug. 25. Rather than stick to one story all season, Double Feature is split in two completely separate parts, titled "Red Tide" and "Death Valley." Further details are a secret for now, but the first teaser certainly suggests that aliens will be involved in some way. It will only be available to stream if you are a cable TV subscriber to FX.
“An anthology series centering on different characters and locations, including a house with a murderous past, an insane asylum, a witch coven, a freak show circus, a haunted hotel, a possessed farmhouse, a cult, the apocalypse, and a slasher summer camp.“
The Other Two on Crave + HBO
We're assuming this new season 2 will be on Crave, even though season 1 ran on CTV Comedy, because the show moved from Comedy Central to HBO Max in between seasons. HOWEVER, WE WERE WRONG. There's no sign of the second season on either Comedy or Crave.
“An aspiring actor and his sister Brooke, a former professional dancer, try to find their place in the world while wrestling with their feelings about their 13-year-old brother Chase's sudden rise to internet fame.“
