Netflix

“Abercrombie and Fitch: The Ups and Downs”

Perhaps we haven’t thought about this store for a long time: starting on April 19, Netflix will show the documentary “Abercrombie & Fitch: Rise and Fall.” In the 2000s, it was difficult for young people to avoid this store, which was especially successful in the USA. There are also a few branches in Germany. In the dimly lit shops, which smell of strong perfume, mainly good-looking young men work, and some men do not wear shirts. This was intended to appeal to the target group: young, slim and white. How racist the company’s management is, for example, is revealed in this documentary, among other things.

“Saul’s best on demand”

New to Netflix, you can watch Season 6 of “Better Call Saul” starting April 19. Breaking Bad revolves around the past of shady lawyer Saul Goodman. The former series takes place six years before the events of “Breaking Bad” and accompanies Jimmy McGill, as Saul Goodman’s real name is on his way to the pub, his first office and finally his questionable success. Other characters from “Breaking Bad” also appear in “Better Call Saul,” such as Mike Ehrmantraut, who sometimes works with and sometimes against Saul.

Amazon Prime Video

lol: last laugh

New to Amazon Prime Video, you can watch Season Three, “Lol: Last One Laughing,” starting April 14. This time there’s Caroline Kibekos, Christoph Maria Herbst, Axel Stein, Ballina Roginsky, Mirko Nuncho, Hazel Brueger, Abdelkarim, Michael Hunziker, Olaf Schubert and Ank Engelk. Michael Bully Herbig will be host and string attractor for the third time. However, viewers will likely see “LOL” with tears in their eyes this season, as it was Mirko Nunchev’s last appearance before his unexpected death in December of last year.

Disney +

“leaker”

If you’ve been getting a taste of scammer stories with shows like Tinder Swindler and Inventing Anna, there’s good news: From April 20, you can watch the mini-series “The Dropout” on Disney+. Hollywood star Amanda Seyfried plays Elizabeth Holmes. With her biotech company “Theranos”, she quickly became a famous founder in Silicon Valley. Its main product was blood tests and it earned millions of dollars from major investors. But over time, their facade began to fall apart.

“McMillion’s”

New on Sky, you can watch the “McMillions” documentary series on HBO starting April 15. Most of you are probably familiar with “McDonald’s Monopoly”: When you buy different products, you get labels that can mask different prices. However, what most people may not know is that between 1989 and 2001, every million dollar winner in the United States was a fraud. In the early 2000s, the FBI received important advice: Why did only middle-aged Italian men from New York win the million-dollar jackpot?

movie of the week

What if you could make decisions in real life as you would in a video game? The horror movie “Choose or Die,” which you can watch on Netflix from April 15, explores this question. Kaylee is a dashing college student who joins her classmate Isaac to win the prize money from a mysterious 80s video game. The game quickly becomes intimidating for the two of them when they realize that they can also use it to influence reality. But they are forced by a mysterious force to keep playing or face death… Isaac is portrayed by British actor Asa Butterfield, known to Netflix fans from the series Sex Education.
