Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return

After a massively successful Kickstarter campaign, cult series Mystery Science Theater 3000 returns with a new season, its first since season 10 in 1999. Geek stars Felicia Day and Patton Oswalt join the old MST3K team to mock a new selection of terrible B-movies. —Gavia Baker-Whitelaw

Dear White People, season 1

Dear White People lands this month as a hotly anticipated adaptation of Justin Simien’s acclaimed 2014 film by the same name. That’s not all good news: The series has been accused of being racist, and neo-Nazis have threatened to leave Netflix over its African-American perspectives. “Equality feels like oppression to the privileged,” Simien responded via blog. But noise aside, you’ll want to tune in, if only to see the episode directed by Oscar-winning Moonlight auteur Barry Jenkins. The series features a different protagonist in each episode, touching on identity and very real millennial issues like blackface at Halloween parties. More importantly: You can safely expect some seriously bingeworthy satire. —Ramon Ramirez
