Five things to watch this weekend
Netflix’s darkly funny Bonding tops the line-up of entertainment that includes Amazon Prime’s Bosch Season 5 and Showmax’s Billions Season 4
Bonding — Netflix
If your idea of the on-screen representation is completely encased within the cold-as-fish Fifty Shades movies then here comes a comic twist on BDSM that will expand your view. A bit of an experiment for Netflix and more like an extended web-series than a full show, episodes run between 15-18 minutes, making it an easy, pleasant and often darkly funny three-hour binge. By day Tiff (Zoe Levin) is a psychology student forced to fend off unwanted advances from her professor and a fellow student. By night she’s one of NYC’s most requested BDSM mistresses. Things can get weird in this world though and so she calls on the help of her gay best friend from high school, Pete (Brendan Scannell), to offer his services as protector, co-actor and sometimes just perplexed observer.
