There are so many great shows across an array of streaming services that it's hard to know where to begin. Here are a few of our favourites...
LAST CHANCE U
AMAZON PRIME // SEASONS 1 - 3 AVAILABLE NOW
Emmy-nominated series Last Chance U returns to give viewers an intense, unfiltered look at a rising junior college football program. The quaint town of Independence, Kansas, is the new setting, as the underdog Pirates have a chance to finally stand tall after more than a decade of losses.
Their bigger-than-life head coach, Jason Brown. A sharp-tongued, yet compassionate son of Compton, California, Brown aims to get the Pirates their first conference title in over 30 years, and doesn’t care if he jolts this quiet Midwestern place while he does it.
THE BLEEDING EDGE
NETFLIX // AVAILABLE NOW
What you don't know, can hurt you. America has the most technologically advanced health care system in the world, yet medical interventions have become the third leading cause of death, and the overwhelming majority of high-risk implanted devices never require a single clinical trial.
Filmmaker Kirby Dick examines the $400 billion medical device industry and the profit-driven mind-set that rushes implanted devices into the marketplace with proper clinical trials.
THE MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE
AMAZON PRIME // SEASON 1-3 AVAILABLE NOW
Loosely based Philip K. Dick's novel of the same name, the Axis won WWII, leading to the United States being divided into three parts, an area controlled by the Japanese, a Nazi-controlled section, and a buffer zone between the two.
Despite the oppression, a new hope emerges when films turn up that seem to show a different world.
