Man vs. Bee (Netflix)
Streaming June 24
Put some dried flowers in a bag and take a long to do something because Rowan Atkinson is back with a brand new series. From the man who gave us BlackAdder, Johnny English, Mr. Bean, and one of the most iconic scenes in Love comes Man vs. Bee, a comedy about a man who houses a luxurious mansion with a small problem.
A bee-sized problem. What we can only assume is some classic British (and physical) humor that Atkinson is known and loved for.
