Happy Monday to everyone, I hope this is a fruitful week of nothing but good news and lots of time spent watching good TV. Like we do every week, we are here to share with you all the best Netflix movies and shows debuting beginning the week of Monday, Mar. 25.

Last week, we saw 3 Body Problems become the talk of Netflix. The battle is: Is it worth watching or should we skip this new series? But the one thing everyone is asking is, "What in the world is happening?" I knew from the moment I watched the series that this show would bring a wide range of opinions followed by a conversation about the reality of it. If you haven't watched it yet, be sure to jump in so you aren't missing out on the talk of the town.

 However, if you don't care to see what the hype is all about, there are other things available this week on Netflix. My favorite pick this week? Is it Cake? season 3, which streams on the platform on Friday, March 29.

New Netflix movies and shows to watch this week (March 25)

Testament: The Story of Moses

Release Date: Wednesday, Mar. 27

A three-episode series exploring the life of Moses titled Testament: The Story of Moses is set to hit Netflix this week. The story follows them from outcasts and murderers to prophets and liberators of the Hebrews. It blends together expert interviews and gripping docudrama that reveals Moses' journey for redemption. 

Is It Cake?

Release Date: Friday, Mar. 29

We have a return of the popular series Is It Cake? The new season promises bigger cakes, higher stakes, and wilder bakes. A new batch of bakers push the boundaries to create realistic cakes to trick and deceive people on their way to the cash prize. Honestly, this is one of my favorite Netflix cooking shows because I always find myself playing along to determine if I guess right. If you haven't caught this show yet, be sure to binge-watch the first two seasons before season three drops this week. 

The Beautiful Game

Release Date: Friday, Mar. 29

Academy Award nominee Bill Nighy plays Mal, a manager of England's homeless football team. He is taking his players to Rome with the hope of being crowned the champions of the Homeless World Cup, a global street soccer tournament. Right before they leave, Mal brings striker Vinny (played by Micheal Ward) along for the ride as he could give them a real chance at winning it all.
