Looking for something to binge this weekend as we head into the most wonderful time of the year? There's a perfect mixed bag this week which means there is something to suit everyone's taste. First up is the sequel to last year's breakout Christmas rom-com, Netflix's A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding. There's also the Netflix premiere of Memories of Alhambra, a whimsical futuristic twist on the indie rom-com. And last but not least, there's Life-Size 2, the sequel to the most iconic Tyra Banks movie of all time.

These recommendations come courtesy of TV Guide Senior Editor Krutika Mallikarjuna and are here to help you through your weekend binge. And if you're looking for even more suggestions, head over to TV Guide's Watch This Now!, which has hand-picked recommendations for all the best shows you can start watching immediately.

1. A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding

Last year Netflix released the corny Christmas rom-com of the season, A Christmas Prince. Lifetime was shook, and they have even more reason to be worried this year as Netflix has already dropped the adorable The Princess Switch and The Holiday Calendar. But the best is yet to come with this year's A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding, which picks up a year after Amber (Rose McIver) helped Prince Richard (Ben Lamb) secure the crown. But it's not all happily ever after as Amber begins to question whether she can really handle being a queen when Richard becomes embroiled in a political crisis that threatens the kingdom and Christmas.

2. Memories of Alhambra

Memories of Alhambra isn't the first K-drama Netflix has streamed, but it is the most highly anticipated. The whimsical romantic comedy revolves around the mysterious connection between a CEO who visits Granada, Spain, for a business trip and gets involved in a cryptic incident -- which involves an innovative augmented reality game -- and a Korean woman who runs the hotel he's staying at. Half indie romance and half magical realism with a futurist twist, this K-drama launches internationally at the same time it's broadcast in Korea, which means Netflix is starting to give greater weight to its international offerings.

3. Life-Size 2

Tyra Banks reprises her iconic role as Eve, a doll turned human, in this modern day Pinocchio story. This time around, she's here to help Grace (Francia Raisa) as she tries to handle her mom's floundering toy company, which created the Eve doll. But between her mother's recent death, a sibling to raise, and her partying days catching up with her, Grace needs a hand, and who better to help than Eve? A sequel decades in the making, Life-Size 2 is a fresh update to a cult classic. (And for fans of the original starring Lindsay Lohan, there's a sweet tribute to the actress, who was working on a conflicting project and couldn't shoot the sequel).
