Here’s the streaming picks for May 2022, we have chosen for the members of BOB Streaming Club. April was packed full of good shows to watch and we’re delighted to say May is no different.
We say a temporary goodbye to Apple TV+ as there are fewer new releases in May, so we’re dropping it from the roster (although Severance will live long in the memory) Hulu also gets a rest following the super-catch up it provided in April.
Just a note on the process of our selections, we only choose shows when an entire entire season is available to view within the monthly window. This gives our members the opportunity to watch all episodes before we rotate subscriptions
Of course, there’s nothing to stop you following our advice yourself, but frankly life’s too short to deal with all the admin of signing up and switching off multiple streaming accounts. So let us deal with that for you! Head to bobstreamingclub.com to get your membership and enjoy hassle-free viewing today.
OUR STREAMING PICKS FOR MAY 2022
HBO Max is coming back with a bang and leads the trio of choices for May. A couple of April releases all ready to be enjoyed are 70’s based comedy Minx and the cult favourite Our Flag Means Death. There’s also Robert Pattinson taking over the role of the Caped Crusader in The Batman.
All episodes of the highly acclaimed Winning Time: Rise of The Lakers Dynasty will be available from 8th May. New episodes of the brilliant noir Tokyo Vice play throughout the month with the entire season available from the 26th May. Also on this day all episodes of Season 2 of the jet-black comedy The Flight Attendant with Kaley Cuoco proving there is life after The Big Bang Theory.
Finally, for fans of The Wire, all episodes of We Own This City are available from the 30th May. Based on a true story creator David Simon teams up with some Wire alumni and is back on the home turf of Baltimore. This promises to be a must see.
HBO Max was a must have this month – the only difficult part is knowing what to start with!
Netflix continues on from its April selection.
The Pentaverate is available in its entirety from the 5th May. Starring Mike Myers in a number of roles (and its always good to see Ken Jeong in the cast). This could well prove to be a quirky left-field title, not long to wait for its release either.
Some big returning series include Ozark which came out just before the end of April. So whether you are just getting into it, or you’re rationing the final few episodes, we thought it’d be worthwhile to create a bigger opportunity to view. There’s much loved 80s horror-nostalgia fest Stranger Things (Season 4, Part 1) available from the 27th May (with Season Five already confirmed and to be the final season). Don’t miss the gripping true story documentary Our Father on the 11th, and The Lincoln Lawyer a series based on Michael Connelly’s bestselling novels from the 13th
Finally, to round out our Netflix highlights in May are two films: French action-comedy The Takedown available from the 6th May and Operation Mincemeat a World War 2 drama from the 11th.
AMC+ is our third pick that we feel offers best value in May
The espionage-assassin-comedy-drama Killing Eve (Season 4) draws to its finale. How the cat and mouse game between Eve and Villanelle comes to a conclusion will be fascinating and nail-biting in equal measure. All episodes of Western series That Dirty Black Bag are also available and perfect if you have a Deadwood-shaped hole in your viewing life.
The final season of the hugely popular Better Call Saul (Season 6 Part 1) comes to our screens via AMC. It would be difficult to leave it out of our line-up, such is the love shown for this show over the last few years, and quite possibly a career defining role for Bob Odenkirk.
Finally, we finish this month’s highlights with 61st Street , fully available from the 29th May. A legal drama about a promising black athlete, Moses Johnson, mistakenly arrested on suspicion of being a gang member. Moses and his lawyer Franklin Roberts must take on the corrupt legal system and the police hellbent on some form of retribution, where the stakes are life or death.
