So many shows, so little time! Fortunately, Birdie makes it easy to decide your next binge through the power of personal recommendations. If you’re wondering what we’ve been watching this past month, look no further. We’ve summed up five of our favorite movies and series to stream this October with the Birdie Team Recommendations.

Clickbait

If you stay up late reading about the date of singularity on Reddit, or thought The Social Dilemma hit a bit too close to home, then Clickbait is next up on your Netflix queue. This series follows Adrian Grenier as Nick Brewer, a man who is abducted — but with a series of online twists. This thriller will keep you on your toes (and perhaps off your phone), and is a must for any true-crime lovers.

Available on Netflix

If you like Clickbait, make sure to check out Money Heist

Worth

Michael Keaton brings an incredible performance as Attorney Kenneth Feinberg in Worth. This biographical drama follows the aftermath of 9/11, as the lawyer is appointed to the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund, and fights to get the group the support they deserve. If you ever got choked up watching Jon Stewart address Congress on behalf of the New York Fire Department (June 11, 2019) then stream Worth at your next movie night.

Available on Netflix and Amazon Prime

If you liked Worth, watch The West Wing

I May Destroy You

Though the series came out in 2020, there’s been quite a bit of buzz around Michaela Cole’s newest show after winning this year’s Emmy for ‘Writing for a Limited Series, Movie or Drama Special’ for I May Destroy You. The Chewing Gum creator changes pace, with this nuanced (yet intense look) into the world of consent culture in a post #MeToo era.

Available on HBO, BBC, Hulu, and Amazon Prime

Breaking Bad

If you haven’t seen Breaking Bad yet… well, we don’t judge our Flock. But we do highly suggest you hop on this completely bingeable series that launched Aaron Paul’s career. Brian Cranston leads the show as Walter White, the timid high school chemistry teacher who turns to the world of drugs after life deals him a bad hand. The character development in this series is incredible — some of the best storytelling of the decade.

Available on Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Apple TV

El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie

Too often movie spin offs can leave the audience wishing they stopped at the season finale. But that’s not the case with El Camino. Not only does this perfectly wrap up the Emmy-winning series, viewers get to see the aftermath for Paul’s character, Jesse Pinkman. We won’t give away any spoilers, but you better watch it… b*****

Available on Netflix

If you liked El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, give Prison Break a try.
