Another season of Outlander — another leap into relocation to new political upheaval.

“After four years of this pattern, you’d think the gimmick would get old. But the time-traveling period drama might’ve actually found its most fascinating and fertile ground yet in the new frontier of Season 4’s colonial America.

The reunited Frasers landed on American shores after last season’s almost-fatal trek around the world. And as the couple now seeks to make a home in the Land of the Free, they come to discover that its citizen are a lot more backwards than the beautiful but dangerous woods they’re trying to tame.

It might be the bias of actually living in the country that Outlander is now set in. But by delving into the seedy underbelly of America’s ugly origins, the show has never felt more relevant than it does now in 2018. Slavery, Native American genocide, the dangers of being gay: Outlander Season 4 does not hesitate to entangle itself in the diciest territories of this country’s legacy.

More than 30m people have watched Netflix’s Murder Mystery; why?

Published

The critics might have hated it, but this Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler-starring Agatha Christie pastiche broke the record for Netflix’s biggest opening weekend

Despite the critics (mostly) hating it, we now know that 30.9m Netflix account-holders watched Murder Mystery in its first three days of release. To put that in context: if two people watched the movie on each account, and you imagine them all paying the average $9 price of a cinema ticket, it would give the film an opening weekend of $556m, the third-largest ever. That is by no means a perfect formula, but nevertheless highlights a staggering performance for an Agatha Christie parody that stars Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler. How did that happen?
