What’s Good On Netflix Australia In September 2021?
Money Heist: Part 5, Volume 1
Come September 3rd, we’re finally getting our first half of Money Heist Season 5, which from the trailer is looking to be a strong final run for the hit show. La Casa De Papel has already been through two separate heists, the latter of which didn’t end too well inside the Bank of Spain. There’s plenty of tension to play around with for this new season, and given the show’s love of non-linear storytelling, we’re glad this isn’t going to be stretched out across weeks. Plus, Money Heist Season 5 Volume 2 is only a few months away.
There are plenty of worthwhile documentaries coming to Netflix in September, but the headline is without doubt Schumacher. It’s about time motorsports GOAT Michael Schumacher got his very own Netflix property, which from the trailer looks to be one of the streaming service’s most epic sports documentaries to date. The 91 Grand Prix winner and 7-time Formula 1 champion will have his entire illustrious career examined, from his humble beginnings karting in Kerpen, to securing his record 7th world title with Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro in 2004.
Untold: Breaking Point
The creators of Wild Wild Country turn their attention towards the sporting industry with five-part docuseries UNTOLD. From August 10, each episode has been premiering weekly, with a focus on different stories across tennis, boxing, basketball, and others, with designs to go “beyond the headlines”. We’ve already seen the series tackle the notorious “Malice at the Palace” brawl that plagued the NBA, and explore boxer Christy Martin’s fight outside of the ring. Now the final entry in the series is ready, with Untold: Breaking Point turning attention to Tennis player Mardy Fish as he attempts to push through the mental strain at the 2012 US Open quarterfinals but bows out with a diagnosis of anxiety.
This episode is especially pertinent in the light of recent discussions around mental health and athletes, a topic that has received plenty of attention during the Tokyo Olympics thanks to gymnast Simone Biles and tennis player Naomi Osaka
How Are Things Looking For Netflix Australia In September 2021?
September 2021 is looking much like August for Netflix Australia: largely dull. That isn’t to say there aren’t a few big play from the streaming giant. The beginning of the end of Money Heist will be the headline release and should easily atone for the rest of the uninspired TV line-up. UNTOLD has proven to be incredibly well-executed in the way that it has pried open some of the more obscure moments in sporting history. Shooting for a similar vein will be Schumacher, which you can tell from the trailer just may be the most inspiring motorsports documentary a streaming service has ever produced.
Other than that, crickets. There are going to be a few gems worth watching. The Lighthouse, starring Robert Pattison and William Dafoe is worth a watch if art-house psychological thrillers get you going, and Max Max: Fury Road is always fun. Too Hot to Handle Latino might be worth a go, but oddly enough Netflix has decided to release the ridiculously horny reality show in weekly episodes this time, as opposed to the first two seasons of the American version, which were released with the typical all-at-once drop.
That should be more than enough to complement existing content and keep justifying that subscription fee. Or your mates subscription fee.
