Power Book II: Ghost is just one of the TV crime dramas to watch this weekend

We’re into a new month. That should mean plenty of TV crime dramas to watch, but this weekend is a little limited. It doesn’t help that COVID-19 continues to cause a problem for filming.

The good news is there are plenty of TV shows to watch if you look in the right places. It’s time to narrow down the options for the weekend of Oct. 3 to 4.

Power Book II: Ghost

More from TV Crime Dramas

We start with the TV crime drama on STARZ that has been performing so well that it already has a second season. Power Book II: Ghost airs its fifth episode this week, an episode that STARZ hasn’t released a synopsis for just yet. That’s okay; there is a promo.

This episode will see the two main characters make big sacrifices. Those sacrifices are for each other and take place over the holiday season. For Tariq, it’s all about getting his mom out of prison, a place that she’s in because of Tariq—she took the fall for him.

Don’t miss the new episode on Sunday at 8/7c on STARZ. You can watch from midnight with the STARZ App.

Evil Season 1

For the next offering, we’re turning our attention to Netflix. Evil Season 1 dropped on the service in full on the first of the month. There’s no doubt that this is a major release, and it’s a chance for CBS to find a new audience for the series in the way The CW managed for Riverdale and All American.

The drama has an interesting premise. A forensic psychologist has to figure out if a person is a psychopath or possessed.

One Lane Bridge

Three episodes of One Lane Bridge have aired on Sundance Now so far. We’re at the halfway mark fo the season, which means there are a lot of questions and theories doing their rounds. This is your chance to play catch up or watch again.

There’s a lot going on with the flashes Ariki is getting on the bridge. It’ll be worth rewatching all three episodes so far just to see what’s playing out here.

American Murder: The Family Next Door

Netflix is the place for the fourth suggestion for TV crime dramas. This is one for true-crime fans. The docuseries looks at the story of the Watts family murders from 2018.

Shanann Watts returns home from work at 2 a.m. At 9 a.m. the following morning, she misses her doctor’s appointment. That wouldn’t usually be cause for concern, but Shanann’s friend knows her well. It doesn’t help that Shanann isn’t answering her phone. What do the police find when they speak to her husband?

The docuseries tells the story through the eyes of those involved. You can watch it on Netflix now.

Dying to Be a Cheerleader

Finally, we turn to the Lifetime movie of the weekend. Dying to Be a Cheerleader tells the story of Darcy, who moves in with her Aunt Cassandra after the death of her mother. On her first day, Darcy watches the school’s cheer team and immediately wants to try out for it.

It could be the worst thing that she could do. When a cheerleader turns up dead, Darcy becomes the main suspect, but it’s clear there’s something else going on.
