As an obsessive Netflix watcher, I feel it is my duty to share the occasional tidbit of information to whet the appetites of other Netflix addicts!* You can take this opportunity to find out what’s new, what’s coming soon, and get a little bit of awesome news as well!
New Netflix Originals Out Now
Narcos ~ Based on the true story of Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar (Wagner Moura) and the Medellin cartel. Not to be confused with ‘Medillin‘, the fictional movie from ‘Entourage’… this real television series is out today!
Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp ~ As discussed on our Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation podcast, ‘Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp’ is the prequel to David Wain & Michael Showalter’s (‘They Came Together’) 2001 satire ‘Wet Hot American Summer’ (obviously). With Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, Elizabeth banks, David Hyde Pierce and more, how could you go wrong?
Coming Soon To Netflix
The New Mr Peabody and Sherman Show .~ One for the kids, Mr Peabody first appeared in series ‘Rocky and His Friends” and “The Bullwinkle Show.” Coming October, the show will follow Mr Peabody and his adopted son Sherman who travel through time on different adventures. Sounds like fun! Couldn’t find a trailer for the new series, so instead we offer you the trailer to the 2013 film starring Ty Burrell (‘Modern Family’) and Max Charles (‘The Amazing Spiderman’)
The Ridiculous Six~ Whether or not you are a fan of Adam Sandler (‘Pixels’), his upcoming Netflix film should be at least a semi-hit. Still, the behind-the-scenes drama makes it look like this film will be more of bottom-of-the-barrel Sandler stuff. Check out if you dare December 11.

Production for Netflix’s third Marvel TV Show ‘Luke Cage’ begins next week. Luke Cage stars Mike Colter (‘The Good Wife’) as the title character, a “hero-for-hire’ with super-human strength. Mike Colter will appear first in Netflix’s second marvel show “Jessica Jones” – expected later this year. ‘Jessica Jones’ stars Krysten Ritter (‘Breaking Bad’, ‘Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23’)
Stay tuned for more Netflix news in the future… (* I originally planned to update monthly… but life got in the way)
