These are the best shows to stream this week, from The Sandman to All Or Nothing: Arsenal

Mysteries, adventure and idiocy (Picture: Netflix/Apple TV+)

We’re definitely in the second half of the summer now, and TV is getting weird.

There’s an adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s supremely mysterious novel The Sandman coming to Netflix, as well as more sublime and surreal stupidity from Beavis And Butt-head.

If you’d prefer drama more grounded in the real world, Amazon is giving us a peek behind the scenes of Arsenal’s last season – spoiler altert, but expect disappointment.

Check out our full range of picks below.

Netflix

The Sandman

Dream a little dream on this (Picture: Netflix)

There are dream roles and there are dream roles. But given that Tom Sturridge is actually playing a physical manifestation of the concept of dreaming then, for once, the description is justified.

Turning such a notion into TV drama is a challenge and Neil Gaiman’s cult novel is a tough one to pin down visually. But such are the spectacular visuals at play here that there’s absolutely no danger you’ll drop off.

Available Friday.

Beavis And Butt-head

Dumb and dumber (Picture: Netflix)

Yes, they’re back. And TV’s most brilliant idiots have learnt nothing – nothing! – in the decade they’ve been away. Which kind of makes us go huh-huh-huh-huh-huh huh-huh huh-huh (repeat till the end of time). Available today.

Amazon Prime

All Or Nothing: Arsenal

The documentary strand featuring a season in the life arrives at Premier League Arsenal and unearths something of a surprise star in the north London club’s Spanish manager Mikel Arteta, whose emotional team talk reveals the passion of a man who has often appeared guarded in post-match interviews.

Episodes one to three available tomorrow.

Apple TV Plus

Surface

Memory games (Picture: Apple TV+)

There’s something alluringly unknowable about Gugu Mbatha-Raw, which is perhaps why she’s cast at the centre of elusive mystery thrillers. Here she plays a woman who suffers an accident that wipes out her memory. Who can she trust?

Episodes one to three are available now.

Sins Of The Fathers

An insight into the Polish mob (Picture: Apple tv)

Italy doesn’t have a stranglehold on Mafia thrillers – here we dive into the world of organised crime in Warsaw.

At the centre of the storm are ex-police commissioner Sikora (Artur Zmijewski) and reformed criminal Blacha (Robert Wieckiewicz), who thought they’d put the mob to the sword for good. But then a threat to their families brings the nightmare back to life.

Available now.
