Adapted from David Nicholls’ bestselling novel and drawing inspiration from the 2011 film featuring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess, “One Day” promises a captivating love story to enchant you this Valentine’s Day. Unfolding across nearly 15 years, the narrative follows Emma Morley (Ambika Mod) and Dexter Mayhew (Leo Woodall), who initially cross paths at their graduation on July 15, 1988. Though sparks ignite, they part ways the next day, only to find their lives intertwining again shortly after. Spanning 14 episodes, the series traces the evolving dynamics between Dex and Em, with each episode occurring on the same date in July, precisely one year apart. As they navigate the highs and lows of life, will joy and heartbreak bring them closer or drive them apart?
Returning for its sixth installment, Netflix’s reality TV phenomenon, “Love is Blind,” is making a comeback. While the premise might be familiar, in case you’ve somehow missed the buzz surrounding this glamorous dating show in the last five years, here’s the scoop: a group of men and women embark on a quest for love. The unique twist in “Love is Blind” is that the contestants engage in relationships without seeing each other. Before glimpsing their potential partners’ appearances, they must delve into their personalities. The initial phase concludes with a series of marriage proposals, all before the engaged couple lays eyes on each other. Subsequently, they are allowed to finally see their new fiancé and then have a few weeks to decide if they want to proceed with the wedding after experiencing real-world life with their partner. Naturally, this setup is a recipe for emotional moments and dramatic decisions.

February wouldn’t be complete without Netflix providing couples opting for a cozy night in with a new romantic comedy for Valentine’s Day, and this year it’s “Players.” The film revolves around Mack (Gina Rodriguez), a sportswriter, and her tight-knit group of friends residing in New York City. Over the years, this close friendship circle has crafted a foolproof set of “plays” designed to effortlessly navigate casual, no-strings-attached hookups. To maintain order, they adhere to a crucial rule: never attempt to turn a “play” into a serious relationship. However, when Mack unexpectedly develops feelings for one of their latest conquests, Nick (Tom Ellis), she finds herself forming a deeper connection. Now, Mack must rally her friends, including her best friend Adam (Damon Wayans Jr.), to rewrite the rules and play for keeps, provided Nick remains oblivious to his initial role as just another target.

‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’
“Avatar: The Last Airbender” stands as one of the most cherished and highly praised animated TV shows in history, so it was only a matter of time before it received the live-action treatment. The initial attempt occurred in 2010 with director M. Night Shyamalan’s feature film adaptation, which fans prefer to disregard for its lackluster execution. Now, Netflix is taking another shot at bringing the captivating world of “Avatar: The Last Airbender” to life. While we recommend a cautious approach, given the previous disappointment, there is optimism that this small-screen adaptation will offer a fresh perspective on the Avatar universe. The eight-episode fantasy series unfolds in a war-torn realm inhabited by individuals wielding the power to control one of the four elements. Aang (Gordon Cormier), the last of his kind, possesses the unique ability to “bend” all four elements. Some believe he is destined to bring peace to the world, while others seek to exploit his powers for destructive purposes.
