Looking for something new to watch on Netflix this weekend? Why not try one of these “wild card” shows. They probably wouldn’t ordinarily have made it onto your list of shows to pick when you settle in for a binge fest but when you suddenly find yourself on episode 5 you’ll thank us for the heads up.

Here are our wild card picks now streaming on Netflix:

Busted

A hilarious panel of Korean entertainment icons team up with some of the biggest names in K-Drama in this madcap whodunit variety show. More “Keystone Cops” than “Sherlock Holmes," each episode sees our cast of bumbling detectives solve a different mystery based on vignettes presented by famous Korean actors and comedians. An overarching plot unfolds throughout the series, and the tension mounts as the panel edges closer to the awful truth.

 

The Rain

The world as we know it has ended. Six years after a brutal virus carried by the rain wipes out almost all humans in Scandinavia, two Danish siblings emerge from the safety of their bunker to find all remnants of civilisation gone. 

Soon they join a group of young survivors and together set out on a danger-filled quest through an abandoned Scandinavia, searching for any sign of life.
