Nowadays, David Beckham is famous for being a model, entrepreneur, and the husband of a former Spice Girl, Victoria Beckham. Because of his A-list status, it’s easy to forget that Beckham was once one of the world’s greatest soccer players. Beckham, a four-part docuseries on Netflix, reminds the world that the talented Englishman was the guy associated with soccer in the 1990s and 2000s. Beckham was the best player on the world’s best team, Manchester United, for over a decade.

While the series does an admirable job of highlighting his accomplishments off the field, it also opens the doors to Beckham’s personal life, from his humble beginnings to becoming a loving father of four children. You’ll walk away with a greater appreciation for the man off the pitch.

The Tourist (2022-)

Netflix’s ability to pick up dropped shows from other networks and turn them into hits is quite impressive. Examples of this phenomenon are Cobra KaiManifest, and Lucifer. While The Tourist won’t reach the heights of those three shows, it should find itself on the list of most popular shows on Netflix with the arrival of season 2.

After a car accident, an Irishman (Jamie Dornan) wakes up in an Australian hospital with amnesia so bad that he can’t remember his name. Why is he in Australia, and who drove him off the road? He receives help in his investigation from local cop Helen (Danielle Macdonald).

One of the underappreciated sitcoms of the 2000s was That ’70s Show. The teen comedy launched the careers of Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis, Topher Grace, Laura Prepon, and Wilmer Valderrama. Nearly two decades since the show went off the air, the Forman family is back in That ’90s Show. The series revolves around Leia Forman (Callie Haverda), the teenage daughter of Eric Forman (Grace) and Donna Pinciotti (Prepon).

In 1995, Leia heads to Wisconsin to spend the summer with grandparents Red (Kurtwood Smith) and Kitty (Debra Jo Rupp). Like her parents, Leia becomes part of a ragtag group of friends who spend their days goofing off in the basement and getting into trouble. Fans of That ’70s Show will be happy with this sequel, and if you’re not, Red will get angry

3 BritBox shows you should watch in April 2024
Two women talk to each other while a man stares at them from behind.

While Hollywood is often seen as the best place in the world to make entertainment, you've probably wondered on more than one occasion whether that was actually the case. After all, in spite of their much smaller population, the Brits seem to churn out some pretty excellent films and TV shows at a pretty regular clip.

And what's even better is that they don't keep to the same kind of rigid schedule that many U.S. shows do. Shows return only when they want to, and can run for as long as they please. Americans have started to adopt that model more recently, and to great success. If you're looking for the real thing, though, it's better to just check out what's available on BritBox, which is home to plenty of great British-made content. We've pulled out three shows from the streaming service worth checking out this month.

While there’s always plenty of great TV on Max, it’s not often that a master director lends his talents to a limited series. Park Chan-wook, the director behind great movies like Oldboy and The Handmaiden, is doing just that with The Sympathizer, a new limited series based on the novel of the same name.

This isn’t the first time that Park has directed TV (more on that below), but The Sympathizer seems poised to be one of the big shows of the spring. The series follows a spy who moves to a refugee camp in the U.S. near the end of the Vietnam War, and continues collecting intelligence for the Viet Cong.
