2. Pitching In

Memorial Day weekend sees the arrival of the four-episode Acorn TV Original Pitching In. Starring EastEnders’ Larry Lamb and The Parent Trap’s Hayley Mills, the series is all about grief, acceptance, and moving on.

Lamb is Frank Hardcastle, a recent widow struggling to find the energy to move on. When his daughter and grandson, Carys and Dylan, arrive for his 71st birthday party and announce they’re sticking around for good, Frank starts to wonder if it’s time for him to move on and start afresh elsewhere instead of running the Daffodil Dunes Holiday Park.

When Carys ends up becoming the new park manager, there are plenty of ups and downs along the way. It doesn’t help that her ex-fiancé shows up.

It’s an excellent binge that drops on May 24. It’s worth noting that the drop is on a Friday, instead of the usual Mondays.

1. Line of Duty Season 5

Line of Duty Season 5 is available on Acorn TV in May. With six episodes, it’s the perfect weekend binge and you certainly won’t be disappointed. This is a series that holds a better Rotten Tomatoes score than Netflix’s highly-rated Bodyguard.

Stephen Graham and Rochenda Sandall are the guest leads for the new season, with Martin Compston, Vicky McClure, and Adrian Dunbar returning as the series regulars for Season 5. When three police officers are shot dead while a seized drugs transport is hijacks, Unit AC-12 moves in to investigate. What are the conspiracies this time?

Watch Line of Duty Season 5 on May 13.
