What’s new on Netflix: Editor’s picks

GLOW season 3

In the wake of several high-profile television seasons ranging from disappointing to downright miserable, it’s a small miracle that GLOW season 3 is just as good as when the show started. The end of season 2 heralded a major change in setting and genre, with the network killing the TV series and the cast heading to Vegas to launch a stage show. This transition keeps GLOW season 3 fresh, focusing on the differences between filming a TV show and performing the same script onstage every night. But even without that hook, the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling still juxtapose their signature brand of comedy with serious and impactful storylines. —Siobhan Ball

American Factory

Years after a GM plant closed in Moraine, Ohio, a Chinese billionaire opened a new plant and hired American and Chinese workers to operate it. With the wide-ranging amount of access, American Factory reveals employees who’ve become closer, the American workers’ efforts to unionize, and just how far the board will go to stop those efforts as two countries’ work values clash. —Michelle Jaworski

Whitney Cummings: Can I Touch It?

In her first Netflix special, Cummings gets right into commentary on #MeToo and sexual harassment, calling out men who claim they don’t know how to behave in the workplace now that people are actually listening to women. She also introduces her sex robot doppelgänger, which she initially made to see if robots could ever fully render humans useless. It’s an engaging spin on the traditional standup special, even if robot Whitney is still working on her delivery. —Audra Schroeder
