Starting on January 21st, you can watch Season 4.1 of the thriller “Ozark” on Netflix. The series revolves around a failed financial advisor “Marty Birdie”, who has to launder very large sums in no time to pay off his debts. He moves with his family to the Ozarks, a seemingly quiet vacation area. But he soon realized that the drug trade was thriving there and that he had to fight hard for his place there. Now he gets a problematic offer from the head of the Mexican drug cartel: if he does this extra job, he and his family are free. Is it worth it for them and do they have a choice?
New to Netflix, you can watch the fourth season of the crime anthology series “The Sinner: Percy” starting January 26. Detective Harry Ambrose, played by Bill Pullman, takes center stage. Soon after retiring from active police service, he travels to Maine, where he is drawn directly into a mysterious new case that he must investigate on his own. He sees a young woman throwing herself from a rock into the sea. But no one believed his observation. Thriller series produced by Jessica Biel, who starred in the first season.

Amazon Prime Video
You can watch the Danish drama “Der Rausch” on Amazon Prime Video starting January 22nd. In it, Mads Mikkelsen plays a teacher who is unhappy with his life. He can’t get excited about his job, his marriage, or his family life. He and his fellow teachers began an experiment: Are they more efficient and happier if they consistently have 0.5 out of every thousand alcohol in their blood? At first everything is going fine. However, the question soon arises: are friends on the verge of a great realization or are they making themselves alcoholic?
New in Amazon Prime Video you can watch the German drama series “Para – Wir sind King”. It’s about four young women on the threshold of puberty. The four grew up in Berlin’s not so pretty Wedding district and have just finished their studies – but they have no idea what’s to come. When they accidentally find a large amount of drugs, they want to take advantage of their discovery. However, they did not reckon with the mafia, which does not like the fact that some young women want to share in their earnings …
New to Sky, you can watch the special “Harry Potter: Hogwarts Tournament of Houses” starting next week. In it, Potterheads compete against each other. Legendary actress Helen Mirren (who hasn’t appeared in the Harry Potter films, but we’re not complaining) hosts the quiz show, which sees four of the four Hogwarts houses compete for the House Cup. There are also notable guests, some from the movies, like Draco’s actor Tom Felton, but also stars like Pete Davidson. There are four episodes of the competition in total.
Since January 19, you can watch the second season of the documentary series “The World As to Jeff Goldblum” on Disney+. In it, the acting legend (including “Jurassic Park”) goes to various places in the world and explores the mysteries of seemingly familiar subjects. For example, viewers take this season to learn about things like magic, fireworks, monsters, and dance.
Slavik fans finally get what they’ve been waiting for for a year: from January 28, Joyn will receive the third season of the reality comedy “Slavik: Auf Staatshals”. In it, actor, musician and comedian Mark Filatov returned to his role as influencer Slavic Young, who is supposed to shoot advertising videos for the office work. For this it tests a new function in each loop. He has already accompanied the police, worked in a fetish store and in a circus or helped with plastic surgery. At the end of the day, he meditates on this with his kids at the hookah bar.
movie of the week
New to Netflix, you can watch “John Wick: Chapter 3” starting January 23. In it, killer John Wick, played by Keanu Reeves, is on the run because he broke the most important rule of the Continental Hotel: he killed someone in the hotel premises. A $14 million bounty has now been placed on his head. John Wick’s escape took him to Essaouira and the Moroccan Sahara. In addition to Keanu, the star-studded action movie stars Halle Berry, Laurence Fishburn, Anjelica Houston, and Jerome Flynn.
Kathy Hummels is currently in Los Angeles for several weeks filming a new RTL-Zwei format. Here, however, she seems to have a streak of bad luck that she doesn’t want to break: First, she lost the influencer’s travel bag and when he appeared again, she found two sunglasses missing. She was also kicked out of a fitness class.
