This week's highlights

Dolemite Is My Name (25/10/2019)

Described as Eddie Murphy's best movie in years, Dolemite Is My Name sees the funnyman play Rudy Ray Moore, the real-life legend that created Dolemite, a blaxploitation hero that would go on to become a cinematic phenomenon. While the films he created were hilariously inept, they were filled with an endearing spirit that helped them transcend their status as bad movies and become something truly special. Watch if you love films like Ed Wood and The Disaster Artist. 

BoJack Horseman: Season 6 (25/10/2019)

In the first half of its sixth and (sadly) final season (second half to arrive on January 31, 2020), BoJack Horseman will hopefully offer a poignant send-off to the greatest animated horse/actor of all time. With BoJack back in rehab for the new season, we certainly hope things are getting better for the former Horsin' Around star. Oh, and we imagine Diane, Mr. Peanutbutter, Todd and Princess Caroline will also get some much-needed closure. 

Daybreak: Season 1 (24/10/2019)

Set in a post-apocalyptic California that's plagued by zombies and roving Mad Max-style gangs, the darkly-funny Daybreak sees a Ferris Bueller-esque teenager try to survive in his new situation while also searching for his lost love. Speaking of Mr. Bueller, the original Ferris actor Matthew Broderick also stars in Daybreak as a high school principal. With its comedic bent and zombie action, expect Daybreak to appeal to fans of the Zombieland movies.
