The Witcher season 3 volume 2 (Netflix)

Henry Cavill is making his final appearance as Geralt of Rivia in The Witcher season 3. He’s leaving the role, and Liam Hemsworth will take over in season 4. We don’t know how the transition will be explained yet.

Right now, in the show, Geralt is in trouble. He’s held at knifepoint by Dijkstra, and he’s realized that they made a mistake in identifying the mage behind the experiments on half-elves like Ciri. The real mastermind is Vilgefortz. Geralt and Yennefer have to stop him quickly.

Harley Quinn season 4 (Max)

Our favorite on-screen couple, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, are back, but they’re on opposite sides now. Harley has turned over a new leaf and is working with the Bat family, while Batman is behind bars. On the other hand, Poison Ivy is leading the Legion of Doom with Lex Luthor.

As the action unfolds on the streets of Gotham, Harley and Ivy’s relationship is tested. Their conflicting roles cause tension between them. Adding to the mix, Harley’s new teammates, Batgirl, Nightwing, and Robin, find it challenging to adapt to her unpredictable and chaotic style.

The Beanie Bubble (Apple TV Plus)

This year has seen a surge of corporate biopics, and now we have one about the Beanie Babies craze from the mid-’90s. You remember those adorable stuffed toys that became a must-have for kids and adults alike overnight.

The film follows Ty Warner (Zach Galifianakis), the creator of Beanie Babies in 1993. Initially disappointed by sluggish sales, Ty receives assistance from three female colleagues (Elizabeth Banks, Sarah Snook, and Geraldine Viswanathan) who come up with a brilliant plan. This plan briefly turns Beanie Babies into something as valuable as gold. However, as we all know, rapid rises are often followed by hard falls. The movie chronicles how the craze soared and eventually faced a downfall.

Fortunately, luck was on their side when Mansa, a crime lord based in Hong Kong, approached them with an offer to introduce them to Yahoo+.
