LSA Watchlist: What to watch on Netflix, HBO GO, Apple TV+, and Prime Video this January

What to watch on Netflix, HBO GO, Prime Video, and Apple TV + this January.

It’s a new year, a new month, and a new bunch of shows and movies to watch and binge. Immerse yourself in a choose-your-own-adventure-esque heist, take to the skies once again with Tom Cruise, spend some time in a familiar basement with a new group of kids, and prepare for an emotional post-apocalytpic ride. 

Here’s what to binge and watch this January on Netflix, HBO GO, Prime Video, and Apple TV+ this January



January 1, Netflix

Netflix’s anthology series follows a heist that spans 25 years, chronicling the events that lead a group of thieves to go after the enormous payday locked behind a rumoured unbreakable vault. The story, however, isn’t the main draw of the series. The show’s episopdes are named after colours and don’t have episode numbers so viewers can watch it in any order. Depending on what order you watch, it will affect the way you see the story.

Join Big Bird, Elmo, Cookie Monster, and Oscar the Grouch for more adventures and learn some things along the way. Why is this on the list, you ask? Come on, don’t act like you don’t want to spend Saturday mornings with a bowl of cereal in hand while watching Sesame Street. Just me? Okay then.

January 21, HBO GO

If you have somehow forgotten just how utterly insane Tom Cruise is, you can remind yourself by watching one of the best movies of 2022. Pete “Maverick” Mitchell is called back to Top Gun to train a squad of young fighter pilots and get them ready for a dangerous mission. It’s all straightforward except for the fact that one of the pilots is Rooster, the son of his former wingman who died in the first film.
