Much to the regret of undertaker Andreas Borowski. At the same time, however, she struggles to overcome her own loss, plunging her family deeper into chaos.
The 6 episodes tell different stories of mourning, death and moving on: Sometimes funny, sometimes sad and always a bit absurd. No matter what others say: death does not have the last word!
The suspenseful drama series tells the origin story of asylum nurse Mildred Ratched. In 1947, Mildred arrives in Northern California to seek employment at a leading psychiatric hospital where new and unsettling experiments have begun on the human mind.
On a clandestine mission, Mildred presents herself as the perfect image of what a dedicated nurse should be, but the wheels are always turning and as she begins to infiltrate the mental health care system and those within it, Mildred’s stylish exterior belies a growing darkness that has long been smoldering within, revealing that true monsters are made, not born.
And, in case you're looking for something to add to your queue for next week, Enola Holmes lands on the streaming service on September 23.
Starring Millie Bobby Brown, Helena Bonham Carter, Henry Cavill, Sam Claflin and Louis Partridge, it is a "dynamic new mystery-adventure that introduces the world’s greatest detective to his fiercest competition yet: his teenage sister."
The film follows Enola Holmes who, on the morning of her 16th birthday, wakes up to find that her mother has disappeared -- and she's left behind an odd assortment of gifts, but with no apparent clue as to where she’s gone or why.
After a free-spirited childhood, Enola suddenly finds herself under the care of her brothers Sherlock and Mycroft, both set on sending her away to a finishing school for “proper” young ladies.
Refusing to follow their wishes, Enola escapes to search for her mother in London. But when her journey finds her entangled in a mystery surrounding a young runaway Lord, Enola becomes a super-sleuth in her own right, outwitting her famous brother as she unravels a conspiracy that threatens to set back the course of history.
