Alison Sargent joins Olivia Salazar-Winspear to talk about "Lupin", Netflix’s latest French-language original that’s stealing the number one slot worldwide. French star Omar Sy plays Assane, a modern-day gentleman thief inspired by Arsène Lupin, the hero of Maurice Leblanc's classic 20th-century novels. Come for the slick Parisian action scenes and the charming leading man, stay for the revenge-driven plot (and the charming leading man).

Another show with a dashing leading man is steamy Regency-era romance "Bridgerton". We take a particular look at how the show addresses race, with commentary from film critic Carolyn Hinds.

Finally, we look at some of the most intriguing content coming up in 2021, including a slew of Marvel shows from Apple TV+. Its first series, "WandaVision", is being hailed as "weird", "clever", and unlike anything from Marvel you've seen before.
