What's Coming and Going From Netflix the Week of July 15, 2019

Jerry Seinfeld is back behind the wheel of a lot of fancy cars (and it looks like one moped?) as the next installment of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee drops on Friday. Bridget Everett, Eddie Murphy, Matthew Broderick, Jamie Foxx and Seth Rogen are all part of the innocuous, low-commitment froth this time around. If you prefer something with a very slight bit more gravitas, may I suggest...

What's Coming and Going From Netflix the Week of December 31, 2018

The end of year offerings from Netflix were grim, so it is with pleasure that I welcome the bumper crop of entertainment in this week’s harvest. We’ve got the full complement of Indiana Jones flicks arriving on Tuesday (I see we are now calling the first installment “Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark,” which I guess is helpful for alphabetical filing?)

Old Home Week continues with...

What's Coming and Going From Netflix the Week of November 5, 2018

Let’s cut the crap and stop pretending there’s anything you want to watch this week besides The Great British Baking Show: Collection 6 (better known as Series 9 in the UK). It’s the most soothing show that ever there was and we all know it.

Too sticky sweet? Then perhaps you’ll enjoy Westside,  a new “unscripted Netflix series” (read: “reality show”) that was definitely elevator-pitched as...

Jeffrey Wright and Alexander Skarsgård in a “harrowing mystery” set in a remote Alaskan village? Let’s do this! Hold the Dark is directed by Jeremy Saulnier (Blue Ruin) and premieres on Friday. I haven’t seen A Wrinkle in Time (Tuesday) and probably won’t watch because it will ruin my precious memories of the book (Charles Wallace!), but I hear it’s very good for kids.

Oh, and there’s a new...

Is there one show everyone agrees is stellar? Yes, and that show is Black Mirror. And Season 5 (there have been four seasons?! We are getting old, friends) drops on Wednesday. Wednesday! A weird day of the week to debut a highly anticipated series! Start coughing and complaining of chills on Monday and your calling in sick on Wednesday will seem totally plausible.

What's Coming and Going From HBO in July 2019

Harry Potter fans can take a break from playing Harry Potter: Wizards Unite this month to watch Fantastic: Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, which officially arrives on HBO on July 13th.

While Big Little Lies will be finishing up on July 21, Season 3 of Divorce will potentially be able to fill the void when it kicks off July 1. Other highlights coming to the network this month include...

What's Coming to Amazon Prime Video in July 2019

Amazon is debuting five Amazon Original series and one Amazon Original movie in July, including Season 4 of All of Nothing focusing on Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, and season 1 of The Boy, an Amazon Original Series that it describes as “a fun and irreverent take on what happens when superheroes – who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians and as revered as...

What's Coming and Going From Netflix the Week of September 17, 2018

I’m most excited this week about a weird limited series called Maniac from Cary Joji Fukunaga (Beasts of No Nation, True Detective, It). Emma Stone and Jonah Hill star as patients in a “mindbending pharmaceutical trial gone awry.” It looks like they hallucinate themselves into a lot of wacky situations, allowing for lots of different costumes, wigs and prosthetics, which is always a good...

'Black Panther' Is on Netflix and You Should Watch It This Weekend

'Black Panther' Is on Netflix and You Should Watch It This Weekend

This is your friendly weekend entertainment concierge reminding you that Black Panther was released on Netflix on Tuesday . If you’ve already seen Crazy Rich Asians and Eighth Grade and BlacKkKlansman, you should stay home, invite a couple pals over, make some spicy prosciutto spread , and watch it. It’s so infrequent that a recent, good, see-it-more-than-once Oscar contender (yes, even with...

I’m excited about Black Earth Rising (Friday), a BBC drama about a survivor of the Rwandan genocide who becomes a human rights attorney and ends up working on a case involving an African militia leader. For whatever reason, John Goodman is in it, which is weird for a British show but I’m not complaining.

I’m probably the only one of us who is kind of looking forward to the...

It’s May, and your cup runneth over—if not in all areas of your life, then at least the most important one: the area in which you recline on your sectional, eating Pop Corners while alternately watching TV and playing on your phone (some call this area the “living room”; I prefer “salon” or “parlour”). We’ve got Knock Down the House (Wednesday), a doc about AOC’s 2018 congressional campaign....

Life is hard, and for this reason, you deserve something nice, which is why I got you Nailed It!: Season 3 (Friday). There’s a lady with Iris Apfel glasses this season!

We’ve already discussed how I feel about the NO Still LAUGH-IN: The Stars Celebrate  (also Friday) so I won’t go into it again except to say that I’m pretty sure the show, which I remember as a mixture of catchphrases...

A moody teen love story with a supernatural twist featuring Guy Pearce uttering lines like, “You’re a young woman in a frightening new world. I think you just need somebody to walk through it with you”? Could it be this summer’s answer to Stranger Things? Let us hope that The Innocents (Friday, Aug. 24) is even half as entertaining— if it is, it’ll win the week.

Other promising debuts include...

I will not, for love or money, be watching Bumping Mics with Jeff Ross & Dave Attel, but I’m aware that these are two “comedian’s comedians” and there are a lot of people who do not find them tedious and self-indulgent. So, feel free to watch these two dudes “roast each other, the audience, and special guests” starting Tuesday.

I’m going to throw my (top) hat in the ring for Death by Magic...

Black Panther. Tuesday. If you need anything else to watch, Next Gen (Friday, Sept. 7), an animated kid-and-robot-vs.-the-bullies feature starring John Krasinski, Jason Sudeikis and Charlyne Yi looks kind of fun. Its tagline is “Friendship is the ultimate upgrade” which, having just gotten AirPods, I take issue with—but the movie’s probably decent nonetheless.

Whatever is going on in the calamitous phantasmagoria known as I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson (Tuesday) is both frightening and intriguing, and it’s the best you’re going to do on Netflix this week. Allegedly, it’s a sketch comedy show brought to you by The Lonely Island, starring Robinson, of Comedy Central’s Detroiters (I must be watching too much Netflix because this is the...

Who among us is excited for the triumphant return to the stage of Ray Romano? Not me! But I’m assuming the same people who kept Everybody Loves Raymond on the air for 11 years have been anxiously anticipating Ray Romano: Right Here, Around the Corner, Romano’s first standup special in 23 years, which hits Netflix on Tuesday.

Let’s hope that ¡Nailed It! México (Friday) is going to be as fun as...

If you haven’t watched season 1 of Ozark, the Southern Gothic thriller starring Jason Bateman as a crooked-but-well-intentioned dad who moves his family to Missouri to launder cash for a Mexican cartel, then you have a few days to mainline it before season 2 drops on Friday, Aug. 31. It’s good! The entire show looks like it was shot through the Instagram “Walden” filter! There are many...

Look, I’m not making any promises about The Umbrella Academy, the latest comic book-to-Netflix Original series (Thursday). It could be terrible, but there’s something about the premise (estranged siblings with superpowers reunite after their father’s death) and the trailer, which has a sort of fairy-tale filter and vaguely Wes Anderson vibe (or, at least a young actor in a red and blue blazer...

There is only one thing to get excited about on Netflix this week and if it’s not your cup of tea, may I suggest Mrs. Maisel on Prime Video? Like the best Christmas present a streaming video service could ever give you, Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War arrives on December 25. It’s probable you’ve seen it, as it was the highest grossing film of 2018. This is not to say it is the best...
