For cord cutters, the anticipation of watching an event live gets transferred over to the weekly dumps of content on the various video streaming platforms. What’s dropping when becomes important knowledge to have, as you organize your queue. If you don’t have time to comb through all the content coming down the series of tubes that make up the Internet, don’t worry — we do.

Here are our picks for what you should watch this week.


Amazon Prime

The premise of Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem seems innocuous enough. An Israeli woman trapped in a troubled and challenging marriage wants to get out. Trying to finalize the divorce process proves more difficult than expected, thanks to religious laws that constrain the two Israelis who now live in Morocco. The woman begins the process of a Gett, a religious divorce that must be approved by the husband and completed through a religious court instead of a secular governing body.

Then things start to get interesting. Gett is a slow burn that takes a relatable situation and spins it out into a drama that reveals more about the relationship between the husband and wife than they could ever tell on their own. The husband’s refusal to allow the Gett leads his wife down a path of painful, difficult, and absurd struggle, as she tries to escape the manipulative claws of her spouse. The process proves to be more of a trial of character than of the request, and shows how ugly scorned love can be.

At this point, Doctor Who is a show that requires no introduction. The cult classic turned pop culture hit has created a huge fan base that obsesses over the Doctor, his companions, and the Tardis. The series aired through 2014 and marked the debut of the twelfth Doctor, played by Peter Capaldi. During the season, all-star writers turned in 12 epic episodes that are sure to please longtime fans, while also serving as a worthwhile starting point for newcomers who can’t stop hearing about the show.

My Best Friend’s Wedding

Julia Roberts is as charming as ever in the 1997 film My Best Friend’s Wedding. In one of her most famous performances, she plays a young New York City restaurant critic upset that her friend is about to marry the wrong person. Though it probably will play as heavy on tropes now, at the time, the film subverted many of the standard romantic comedy conventions and made for a funny and smart take on the genre.

Rosario Dawson in Ahsoka.

If you've noticed that Disney+ has a lot fewer original series premieres than it used to, it's not your imagination. It's hard to update the best shows on Disney+ when there's barely anything new to watch. But as the fall begins, Disney+ subscribers can enjoy the latest Star Wars spinoff Ahsoka, or the recently concluded Secret Invasion from Marvel. And for fans looking for something a little more down to Earth, Disney+ is the streaming home for the recently concluded The Wonder Years.

In theory, there's something new on Disney+ every month, but the programming schedule for the rest of the year is looking pretty light except for Loki in October. Fortunately, Disney+ has a strong catalog of shows to fall back on, and we'll always keep you updated with our list of the best shows on Disney+ right now.
