April showers bring more hours to sit watching streaming television shows and movies.

Amazon releases season three of its original comedy series, “Catastrophe,” which begins where it left off — did she or didn’t she? American Rob (Rob Delaney) and his Irish wife Sharon (Sharon Horgan) are estranged, but trying to make things work for their child when Rob discovers that Sharon might have had a one-night stand. This season’s definitely worth a tune-in, as includes the final appearances of Carrie Fisher as Rob’s hilarious and wonderfully ghastly mother.

Netflix gives us “Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return.” New host Jonah Ray has been captured by mad scientists and must survive an onslaught of B movies by riffing on them with his robot buddies. Yes, you may know the drill, but it never gets tired, so call your friends and make some popcorn.
