New on Hulu June 3: fire island

It’s this writer’s personal opinion that Bowen Yang makes everything great, which is why we can’t wait to stream fire island this weekend. Joel Kim Booster, who has written for shows like Big Mouth and The Other Twoand who has appeared in Shrill and sunnysidewrote the script for the film, which is loosely based on Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudiceand features a great supporting cast of comedy actors including Margaret Cho, Conrad Ricamora, and Matt Rogers.

New on Netflix June 3: Floor Is LavaSeason 2

Floor Is Lava is exactly what it sounds like, a riff on the game where kids jump all over their furniture, toys, or playground equipment pretending that they’ll get burned by “hot lava” if they touch the ground. Only in this version, these obstacle courses are brimming with bubbling goo that contestants, in teams of three, have to avoid, lest they lose their shot at the prize at the end of the episode. Season two promises higher stakes, and a volcano that’s sure to lead to some explosive moments on the new season.
