Netflix this week (May 12-18, 2024) plans to add 12 new TV shows and movies to its streaming lineup. Here are the three most interesting, in my humble opinion:

Ashley Madison: Sex, Lies & Scandal (Netflix Original)
The Netflix documentary examines the dating web site for extramarital affairs that blew up in 2015 when hackers began releasing embarrassing secrets about its clients. While one could argue that they got what was coming, the episode has become a cautionary tale about the dangers of providing personal information online. Debuts Wednesday, May 15.

Bridgerton (Season 3, Netflix Original)
Season three of the sudsy British historical romance will commence on May 16 with four episodes while part two will debut on June 13. Bridgerton is not my cup of tea, if you will, but I’m told season three will continue the tale of Queen Charlotte, Penelope, Colin and all the ribald clan. Debuts Thursday, May 16.

The Clovehitch Killer (2018)
Charlier Plumber stars as the teen son of a man (Dylan McDermott) who he suspects may have been an infamous serial killer a decade ago. Based loosely on the real-life BTK killer (Dennis Rader), the under noticed 2018 film generated strong critical reviews with a score of 78 at Rotten Tomatoes. “This is a movie that creates fear out of creepy moments and by playing on the natural desire of wanting to feel safe with family. There’s no need for blood or excessive acts of violence when the scares are this unsettling,” wrote the Tribune News Service. Debuts Wednesday, May 15.
