7 new shows and movies to watch this weekend on Netflix, Prime Video, Hulu and more June 3

June is off to a flying start, with a scorching mix of new shows and movies to watch this weekend on netflix, First videoHulu and other streaming services.

The range is led by The boys season 3, who returns with even bloodier action, if that’s possible.

The boys will have their hands full (of body parts) with this guy.

Two other shows premiering this weekend will take you back in time: to the rise of punk in the 70s in Pistol and the aerobics craze of the 80s in physics season 2. For current dramas, revel in Netflix’s revival of Danish political series Borgen: Power and Glory.

Here’s our guide to what to watch this weekend.

The Boys season 3 (Prime Video)

Like the song says, the boys are back in town and if they wanna fight, you better leave them. Drink will flow and blood will flow. Lots and lots of blood. The ultra-violent super anti-hero series features another deadly character, Soldier Boy (Jensen Ackles), a patriotic World War II veteran who doesn’t hesitate to abuse his powers. Oh, and Homelander (Antony Starr) is completely nuts, so good luck to the world.

Fire Island (Hulu)

Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice gets a delightful modern, queer update written by and starring comedian Joel Kim Booster. Noah is a gay, more sarcastic version of Elizabeth Bennet, who travels to Fire Island with her best friend Howie (Bowen Yang) for a week of sunny, dewy evenings.

Noah puts aside his own connection needs to focus on posing for his shy boyfriend. Things look good when Howie finds an instant connection with a kind pediatrician named Charlie (James Scully). Unfortunately, Charlie’s aloof friend Will (Conrad Ricamora) threatens to be a buzzkill. Not only is he overprotective of Charlie, he even insults Noah! But the tension between Will and Noah begins to evolve. If you’re familiar with Austen’s novel or its many adaptations, you know they’ll be happily ever after — or in this case, sexy — forever.

Gun (Hulu)

The rock and roll revolution will be streamed! Hulu’s new limited-series drama celebrates the rise of punk culture ignited by iconic band the Sex Pistols. The memoirs of founding member and guitarist Steve Jones serve as raw material, detailing how a group of working-class children with no ‘future’ literally shook up stuffy British establishment types. Toby Wallace stars as Jones, with Anson Boon as singer John Lydon, Louis Partridge as ’70s Vicious, Thomas Brodie-Sangster as manager Malcolm McLaren, and Maisie Williams as style designer Jordan.

What we sometimes forget about the Sex Pistols is how short-lived the group was. They only lasted three incredibly chaotic years, but their influence is still felt today in music, culture and art.
