What's new on UK streaming services for February 2022

A long way from Mary Poppins

by Andy Bassett

Disney+ goes all celebrity sex tape, Amazon said nothing and Apple has a solution for work / life balance.

Updated 20-Jan-2022 - Disney+: Kingsman: The Golden Circle (4th Feb) - The Longest Ride (4th Feb) - Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (4th Feb) - Torn (4th Feb) - Secrets of Sulphur Springs S2 (9th Feb) - The Thing About Harry (11th Feb) - Table 19 (11th Feb) - High Strung (11th Feb) - The French Dispatch (16th Feb) - Predator (18th Feb) - Predator 2 (18th Feb) - Snatched (25th Feb) - The Imposters (25th Feb)

Updated 25-Jan-2022 - Amazon Prime Video: Last One Laughing Canada S1 (18th Feb) - Wolf Like Me S1 (25th Feb)


In a well timed nod to the month for lovers everywhere, Disney+ (of all services!) will be showing Pam & Tommy, a series about the relationship between Baywatch’s Pamela Anderson and Mötley Crüe’s Tommy Lee which led to the world’s first widely available celebrity sex tape, and features remarkable transformations by Lily James and Sebastian Stan as the titular pair… and Tommy Lee. Disney sure has come a long way since Mary Poppins!

Disney+ also sees the final Walking Dead season returning for another eight episodes which hold the fort until the final octet arrives later and The King’s Man hits the service on 9th Feb after its short theatrical run at the very end of 2021.

Over on Amazon Prime Video, the big (and we mean properly BIG) news is the return of Jack Reacher in the form of the appropriately bulky Alan Ritchson, starring in the TV reboot of the character who does most of his talking with his supermarket-chicken-sized fists. Meanwhile, all time England top scorer, footballer Wayne Rooney is the subject of an in-depth documentary simply called Rooney, which may have to be updated if he returns to Everton as manager in the next few weeks!

Finally, Apple has a couple of interesting looking TV series coming in February in the form of Suspicion and the Ben Stiller directed Severance, which looks to be suitably creepy.

As ever, although we’ve tried to be as UK specific as possible, streaming dates can change, content can sometimes be territory specific and shows can even get pulled or added at the very last minute by the streamers themselves as they sort out scheduling or licensing issues.

We’ll keep updating the article as new content gets announced, so please check back.

Disney+ and Star Originals:

Pam & Tommy (2022, S1, First three episodes available, then five weekly episodes)

Already international celebrities, Baywatch actress Pamela Anderson and Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee meet in 1995 and after a 96-hour whirlwind romance, they end up getting married. While on honeymoon, the couple’s passionate and intimate sessions are recorded on video for their own gratification and then safely stored away.

However, when a disgruntled contractor working on the couple’s house has a falling out with the pair, he plans a burglary which puts possession of the steamy tape in his hands. With this incriminating material as a valuable asset, he hatches a plan to use the fledgling internet as a way of generating interest and income, while an embarrassed Pam and Tommy try and use any means possible to halt its distribution.

The story behind the original celebrity sex tape happened at a point where the internet was a largely unregulated primordial ooze and this true story presents an intersection of privacy, technology and celebrity which could be seen as the progenitor of our current reality TV/social media obsession, whereby what you’re doing is less important than the fact that you are seen doing it.

The series was developed by Seth Rogen and was directed by Craig (I, Tonya, Cruella) features an all-star cast including a convincing Lily James as Anderson and Sebastian Stan as Lee, with Nick Offerman and Seth Rogen gaining mullets as the pair trying to get rich off the couple’s personal moments.
