Superfan Nav Bhatia, Benedict Cumberbatch and Money Heist: Here’s what’s streaming on Netflix and more for Canadians this week
With so many different streaming platforms and cable offerings to navigate through, choosing what to watch has never been harder. To make things easier, here are our best tune-in tips for the week ahead.
The Power of the Dog
One of the most popular movies at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this year and a runner-up for the People’s Choice Award, “The Power of the Dog” could also be titled “The Power of Benedict Cumberbatch.” The esteemed actor plays charismatic rancher Phil Burbank, who inspires fear among those around him. When his brother brings home a new wife and son, Burbank exposes himself to love. There are reports that Cumberbatch and co-star Kirsten Dunst both went full method acting for their roles, refusing to speak to each other off the set until filming was done.
Money Heist: Part 5 Vol 2
While “Squid Game” and “Tiger King” have been all the rage on Netflix, they both might be ready to meet their match with “Money Heist.” When “La Casa de Papel” (the show’s original title) premiered as a two-part miniseries in Spain four years ago, it was generally regarded as a complete flop. The story about a group of criminal masterminds who pull off a robbery at the Royal Mint was largely ignored. That’s when Netflix decided to truly flex its marketing muscle. The streaming service repackaged it into shorter episodes, infused much more money into it and ordered more seasons. The result was yet another global phenomenon. The first part of this final season ended with the apparent death of a major character. Without giving it away, we shall see whether that remains true.
Money Heist: From Tokyo to Berlin: Volume 2
It’s the end of an era. In this post-mortem, the “Money Heist” showrunners share secrets about filming its final run. It’s bittersweet for fans who want to watch the goodbye but don’t want to say it.
Much to the chagrin of many, it isn’t Christmas without fruitcake. Corsicana, Texas is apparently known for the holiday pastries (who knew?) until it was discovered that someone extorted millions from its famous Collin Street Bakery. The lavish lifestyle the culprits were living makes the perfect treat if you want to get away from all the holiday cheer for awhile.
Superfan: The Nav Bhatia Story
If you are from Toronto and reading the Toronto Star, chances are you already know who Bhatia is. Even if you aren’t from Toronto, chances are you still know. The Toronto Raptors’ superfan has attended every single Raptors’ home game since 1995. How does a car salesman attending basketball games find himself in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame? This doc attempts to find out. It also features interviews with the man himself, alongside Raptors’ legend Vince Carter and head coach Nick Nurse.

Coming Out Colton
Earlier this year, former “The Bachelor” star Colton Underwood made headlines after revealing that he is gay on “Good Morning America.” The former pro football player said that he was blackmailed, resulting in the former reality star having to face a new reality. He shares his truth in this new series.
In 2018, 12 boys went exploring in Thailand’s Chiang Rai province with their soccer coach. What happened next captured the world’s attention for two weeks.

This new doc will tell the harrowing true story.

Bestselling authors James Patterson and Vicky Ward have teamed up to produce this explosive doc series that follows Ghislaine Maxwell.
