Get ready for an action-packed weekend. And by action-packed we obviously mean you sitting on your couch in your comfiest clothes while watching people on TV kick some major ass.

Kung Fu and The Nevers make their respective debuts this week, both containing breakout performances by some seriously powerful female leads and making for the perfect double feature. 

Plus, Amazon's creepy new anthology series is a must-watch for horror fans, Netflix has true crime-obsessed viewers covered with the tale of one of the most infamous unsolved robberies and—praise McDreamy!—Grey's Anatomy is finally delivering a moment months in the making. 

Here's what to watch this weekend, April 10-11...

If You Love Period Pieces But Also Superheroes: Imagine if Heroes and Bridgerton met in a bar and had a one-night stand that resulted in a baby. That baby would be The Nevers, a sci-fi drama that takes place in the last part of the Victorian era and follows a group of "touched" people—mostly women—who've mysteriously obtained otherworldly abilities. Expect strong female leads, kickass action and breakout performances by Outlander's Laura Donnelly and Ann Skelly. (Where to Watch: premieres Sunday on HBO Max)

If You Are in the Market For Yet Another Netflix Watch With a WTF Ending: What is it about these cheesy and ridiculous movies and TV shows with baffling conclusions that still reel us in every time?! This week's offering is What Lies Below, the streaming giant's new horror film about a teen girl dealing with her mom (played by Mena Suvari, so prepare to feel the cruel slap of time across your face) having a hot new boyfriend who may or may not be a literal monster.
