If you're not looking to leave your home this weekend, Netflix is always there to keep you warm and entertained. Mileage may vary, of course, but in the end, there are plenty of new offerings this weekend that will make things move a bit easier.
The streaming platform is bringing plenty of original offerings this week, including the latest chapter of The Ranch with Ashton Kutcher and the fun cooking action from The Chef Show's second season.
On top of that, there are a few Chinese imports joining the Originals banner on the platform and a few other original movies that might scratch that gooey, sugary junk itch.
For the true crime buffs, there is the limited series Unbelievable debuting this weekend. Not only is it a crime story that joins something like Mindhunter by bringing the reality to life, it also touches on a serious topic that everyone should know about.
And if none of that is your thing, there are a few noteworthy comedy specials out there.
Scroll down for a few options you can go with this weekend.
The Ranch chapter 7 has arrived and is bringing some major changes for Ashton Kutcher and company. While former star Danny Masterson isn't likely to return, many fans are still holding out hope moving into the show's final stretch.prevnext

Bill Burr's latest special premiered earlier in the week but still has plenty of gas heading into the weekend. He hits some spots that are sure to rub some the wrong way but it fits in with other recent specials from comedians, including Dave Chappelle.
Burr does cover some similar territory as Chappelle, but it doesn't seem like he's rubbing as many poorly.prevnext
