Best new streaming TV shows this week

Resident Evil season one (Netflix)

Ella Balinska Points A Gun In A Dark Tunnel In Resident Evil On Netflix - Review

It started out as a survival horror video game in the 1990s, but Resident Evil has since expanded to eight main games, along with several spin-offs and remakes. There are novels, comic books, action figures, and many CGI animated films and shows, based on the game series, not to mention seven (yes, seven) live-action feature films. This week Netflix debuts the first-ever Resident Evil live-action TV show.

The show takes place in two different timelines. In the year 2022, Albert Wesker (Lance Reddick) has developed a new drug for the Umbrella Corporation that has serious side effects. In the year 2036, the world is infected with the T-Virus, and Wesker’s adult daughter Jade (Ella Balinska) tries to find a cure for the zombie outbreak. So how do these two timelines interact, and how will they bring in plot elements from the Resident Evil games? Watch and find out, or if you don’t want to go blind, read our review of the show.

In November 1971, a man calling himself “Dan Cooper” hijacked a plane during its flight from Portland, Oregon to Seattle, Washington. He asked for $200,000 and four parachutes or he would blow up the plane. The plane eventually landed in Seattle. The passengers got out, the plane was refueled and “Cooper” got what he asked for. The plane then took off again with “Cooper” and the other crew members. “Cooper” then opened a back door and jumped out of the plane, never to be seen again.

More than 50 years later, the man later dubbed “DB Cooper” has still not been identified and has not been caught. This new Netflix miniseries tries to find this mysterious hijacker who later became a folk hero of sorts, with new clues and information from law enforcement and amateur detectives alike.
