With so many shows and movies to choose from on Australia's major streaming services, it can often be difficult to find the best new stuff to entertain yourself with each end of week.
In an effort to make things easier, every Friday we'll be highlighting the best new shows and movies to watch on Aussie streaming platforms, covering the likes of Netflix, Disney Plus, Binge, Foxtel Now, Stan and Amazon Prime Video.
Below, you'll find a list of this weekend's highlights, separated by streaming service, with binge-worthy new shows sitting alongside some great big-budget new movie arrivals – and a couple of oddball left-of-field entries, just for some variety.
Thankfully, there's a nice selection of new shows and great movies landing on Australia's streaming services for watching Friday through Sunday. Here are our streaming picks for the week of February 26-28, 2021.

Superman & Lois (TV Series – season premiere available now)
Chances are that you've already met this iteration of the DC comics power-couple Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) and Lois (Elizabeth Tulloch) thanks to their various appearances throughout in a number Arrowverse tie-ins. So far, they've made a great impression, which is why it's exciting to see the pair get their own spin-off series which sees Clark bring Lois home to Kansas to raise their teenaged sons.
Punky Brewster (TV Series – series premiere available on 26/02/2021)
Remember Punky Brewster? Well she's back – in grown-up form! Soleil Moon Fry returns in the title role, only this time she's playing a single mum who's trying to raise a family of her own. Those familiar with the original '80s series will remember that young Punky was abandoned at a supermarket, which is where she met the friendly old man who would go on to adopt her. Now, it seems Punky has met another lost girl who's in a similar situation. Also stars Freddie Prinze Jr.
