Looking for some new movies and shows to stream?

If you’re hunkered down under a stay-at-home order like me and my family, you’re probably looking for things to keep you occupied! I’ve been taking care of cleaning and organizing projects and even dabbling in some arts and crafts, but some nights, I just want to wrap myself in blankets like a burrito and watch something new.

But… there are just so many options for what to watch on Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, and HBO, and I don’t always know what to choose. Thankfully, the Hip2Save team always has great suggestions!

Hip Tip:  Be sure to check out all the ways you can watch your favorite TV shows, movies, and sports for cheap or even free!

Here are some of our team’s recommendations:


Ozark Title Card

A family relocates to the Ozarks in order to launder money for a drug cartel.

“I love the first 2 seasons and season 3 of Ozark just came out! Can’t wait to start binging this show again!” — Sara

Mr. Right

Anna Kendrick and Sam Rockwell star in this action/romance movie about a woman who falls for a guy who turns out to be an assassin.

Love is Blind

This captivating reality show challenges people to fall in love without laying eyes on each other.

“Love is Blind is so addicting! I can’t look away even though it gets kind of cringe at times! I can’t wait for more seasons!”  — Jenna

On a side note, it appears that Stetson also loves this show! 😉

Locke & Key

Locke and key title card

This supernatural/horror drama is based on a comic book series by Joe Hill and Gabriell Rodriguez. It definitely pulls you in but might be too scary for younger kids. So if you’re looking for something a little ~spooky~ this is the show for you!

“My husband insisted it was ok for the kids (youngest is 9). We only watched one episode and she ended up in bed with us last night. 🙄 thanks, honey.” — Jill

A Little Princess

One of my all-time favorites! This 1995 adaption of Francis Hodgson Burnett’s classic is beautifully filmed and just takes you back to another time.

Watch Yesterday on Hulu or HBO via Amazon Prime Video

What if The Beatles never existed, and you were the only one who could remember their songs? That’s what happens to Jack in this sweet romantic comedy.

“A great movie, especially if you’re a fan of The Beatles or a music lover.” — Jessica

Jack Ryan

The newest adaptions of Tom Clancy’s famous book series star John Krasinski, who we know and love as Jim Halpert from The Office, but he’s a great action hero, too!

Troop Zero

Troop Zero is a heartwarming crowd-pleaser that’d be a great pick for your next family movie night.

“If you haven’t seen the movie Troop Zero, it’s a good one that will have you laughing and crying!” — Stacy

“Troop Zero was super cute, my eight-year-old loved it.” — Jessica

Last Man on Earth

If you’re the kind of person that deals with the stress of current events using humor, this series might be for you!

“I had just started re-watching it when all this happened…I thought it would make me feel slightly better about not being able to go anywhere!” — Sara


suits tv show poster

Suits follows the dramatic lives of high-powered corporate lawyers in NYC with seasons 1-8 available to watch for FREE with Amazon Prime!

“We have been watching Suits and absolutely LOVE it! It’s a legal drama that keeps us all entertained and I have enjoyed watching several episodes in a row when I can!” — Angie


mcmillions documentary title card

Watch McMillions on HBO

This documentary details the McDonald’s Monopoly scandal from start to finish highlighting each person involved and how the scam came to light.

“I had no idea this was even a thing since I was little at the time this was happening. I personally thought it was slow to start, but it’s full of interesting characters and has a pretty shocking twist at the end. Highly recommend!” — Emily


clue on amazon title card

This murder mystery is quirky and campy and everyone will have their own opinion on “whodunnit”!


justice movie poster

The story of an unexpected friendship between a girl with spina bifida and the widowed single mom who becomes her caretaker.

“Justine is one of those feel-good movies that will have you laughing and crying. While dealing with debilitating grief, the main character is slowly able to start healing after she starts a job she never thought she’d take as caretaker of a sassy, but sweet 8-year old with Spina Bifida. If you like Troop Zero, I think you’ll like this one too! —Stacy


hunters on amazon title card

In 1970s New York, a team of very different people works together to bring high-ranking former Nazis to justice.

“We just finished Hunters on Prime last week and my hubby and I really liked it. This is such a great show and it’s Al Pacino at his best, so I would recommend watching just for that, but it’s also heartbreaking, action-packed, suspenseful and funny all at the same time. Not to give anything away, but be sure to stick around until the end. You won’t see the twist coming!” — Cass

Tiger King

No current Netflix roundup is complete without this wild new series! This insane documentary follows Joe Exotic and a cast of eccentric characters in the big cat breeding world.

“Such a train wreck, but I can’t stop watching!” — Jill

“Like pretty much everyone else in the world, I strongly recommend Tiger King—it’s so bizarre, yet highly entertaining. I kept saying ‘Is this actually real?’ more times than I can count!” — Emily

    If you are looking for a show that has lots of laughter you must watch, no binge, Schitt’s Creek on Netflix. It took me four years to check it out but sadly the series ended this week. I’m planning on binge watching the six seasons soon bc it’s that good!

    I also recommend the show Barry on HBO and Hulu with Bill Hader. It’s a dark comedy-crime show and very well written.

    • Mary

      Love love love funniest series, love dddddaaaaavvvvviiiidddd

  2. angie

    Tried to watch Troop Zero because I am looking for family friendly shows on Prime, but they swore 3 times in the first 4 min, so we quit watching. I wouldn’t advertise it as a family friendly show.

  3. Lark81

    I love this and would love a similar post on strictly family friendly shows! Thanks!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re welcome! Thanks for the request! I’ll be sure to pass this along to the team!

      Love Hart of Dixie! So sad when I finished the series.

  5. Coby

    If you are looking for romantic comedy watch “Crash Landing on you” on Netflix..its korean tv series but has english subtitles..it’s good

  6. Danette

    A real surprise on Netflix, my hubby loved it and it ended up it was based on a true story “Freedom Writers”!
    Highly recommend it.

  7. norsie

    This is not on Amazon, Netflix, Etc. but I thought you might like to know that Andrew Lloyd Webber is releasing a musical every Friday that is available for free for 48 hours on YouTube. This weekend is Jesus Christ Superstar.

  8. Lily

    For adults, highly recommend “The Pharmacist” on Netflix! It’s a 4 part documentary about an incredible small town pharmacist who uncovered his son’s killer and later stopped a “pill mill” doctor, saving hundreds if not thousands of people from opioid abuse. Dan Schneider is a true hero, and his story is much needed in times like this.

  9. Justine

    I agree with “A Little Princess” on Netflix. This is one of my favorite movies! I enjoyed it as a child but like it even more as an adult. It is a gem of a film that is emotionally heavy, but is also magical and captivating – great for family movie night or even just to watch by yourself.

  10. Carissa Robideaux

    I’ve loved this downtime because I’ve gotten to watch a series that I loved back in college (circa 1999) with my teenage daughters now. I have them hooked!!! It’s called, Roswell, and all three seasons are on Hulu. Note: do not get it confused with the Roswell that is on Netflix which is a reboot of the original – it is rubbish.

  11. Sarah

    I cannot say enough good things about Hunters. I watched one episode and I was hooked. I have questions about Troop Zero. I watched maybe 15 minutes of it and was bored. At what point does it start to pick up?
