Bridgerton Season 2 has finally arrived on Netflix and bingeing its eight episodes may have taken up some time, but that doesn’t mean we forgot about the rest of the awesome shows.

Pachinko premiered this week on Apple TV+, with its epic saga following the life of a Korean immigrant family across four generations in a quest to thrive. Hulu‘s The Dropout continues to be a jaw-dropping show as it follows the scandal of Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos, while Young Rock gives us a closer look on Dwayne Johnson‘s life. Disney+’s highly anticipated new Marvel show, Moon Knight, arrived this week as well, with Oscar Isaac playing the unique superhero with a dark spin.
