In a crazy week for new releases, the team pack in as many shows as possible, and invite Bethany Minelle back to help spread the entertainment love.

They kick-off with Spike Lee’s prescient Netflix movie Da 5 Bloods, about four Vietnam veterans returning to the field to exorcise some memories and while they’re at it, dig up some treasure too.

Stevie’s been catching up with tattooed Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson and finds out how he’s doing after making the very personal movie The King Of Staten Island with director Judd Apatow, streaming now.

Katie isn’t convinced by David Tennant and Michael Sheen’s latest show – lockdown project Staged on the BBC iPlayer – despite the hair extensions and peek into their private lives it offers.

Bethany catches up with Frozen star Josh Gad in her kitchen (she’s in her kitchen, he’s not) and finds out all about the Disney adaptation of much-loved kids book Artemis Fowl. She also does her best to find out if we can expect Frozen 3 soon… with limited success.

There’s a rare moment of agreement as Michaela Coel’s latest BBC drama, I May Destroy You, blows everyone’s socks off, and in lieu of actually escaping abroad this year there’s a bit of time to chat about Polish language Harlan Coben adaptation The Woods, on Netflix.

The BBC’s Salisbury Poisonings bring back distant memories of a time when Hazmat suits on TV were uncommon, and then a complete gear change to the supernatural spoofing of BBC Two’s latest series of What We Do In The Shadows.

Phew, we told you it was packed.
