The season finale of the popular HBO Max series “Euphoria” has already been released. If you were binging that and are unsure what to watch this weekend, here is what some of us at the Northern Star will be watching for some ideas.

Space Force (Netflix)

“Space Force” is a Netflix comedy starring Steve Carell, Diana Silvers, Tawny Newsome, John Malkovich, Jimmy O. Yang and Ben Schwartz. 

The show is based on the United States Space Force branch, with a comedic take. The show focuses on General Mark R. Naird, played by Steve Carell, and the drama of his relationships, family as well as his job. The second season was released on Feb. 18, so this is something I’ll be watching over the weekend and over break. If you liked “The Office,” this is a little bit different, but is still funny and easy to watch.  – Madelaine Vikse, Lifestyle Editor

Good Girls (Netflix)

“Good Girls” follows three best-friends that are all in desperate need of money. One can’t afford her daughter’s medical bills, another is a single mom in a custody battle and the third is dealing with a cheating husband that has put their family into debt. The women rob a grocery store to make some quick cash, only to find that the money they took actually belongs to a mob gang.

The fourth and final season of “Good Girls” was just released on Netflix and has already entered the “Top 10.” If you’re a fan of crime comedy shows, you’ll want to check it out. – Brionna Belcher, Managing Editor
