Feeling the luck of the Irish this month? You should, with all the new titles coming to Netflix.

You’ll also be able to enjoy some of your old favourites like the Will Farrell comedy, Step Brothers, Edgar Wright’s brilliant horror-comedy Shaun of the Dead, Seth Rogen’s stoner comedy Pineapple Express and so many more to look forward to. So, pop open your favourite drink and put your feet up and enjoy some terrific entertainment.
Carmen Sandiego: To Steal Or Not To Steal
Remember how Black Mirror warped your mind with an interactive adventure that documented the drowning insanity of a desperate video game designer in Bandersnatch? Well, Netflix is giving another go at the interactive special with Carmen Sandiego.
Carmen is forced to work with the International Villians League of Evil (V.I.L.E) after Zack and her sister Ivy are captured during a heist in Shanghai. Carmen will be given a task and if she fails, both Zack and Ivy will have their minds completely erased and become operatives of V.I.L.E.
The viewer will choose Carmen’s path and actions during her mission and it will be up to you to save the day and, maybe in the process, pull off the ultimate caper.
Mari Gilbert’s daughter is missing. The police are making no breaks in the case, no one knows how to help and any hope that she had is diminishing each and everyday. So, she’s forced to work outside the law and begin her own investigation. In the process, she manages to find a connection between her daughter’s disappearance to a wave of unsolved murders involving young female sex workers on the South Shore barrier islands. Could this be the work of the elusive Long Island serial killer?
Based on the book by Robert Kolker, Lost Girls stars Amy Ryan (The Office), Thomasin McKenzie (Jojo Rabbit), Lola Kirke (Mozart in the Jungle) and Gabriel Byrne (The Usual Suspects).
What is this reality series suppose to accomplish? Whatever it is, it guaranteed that everyone will have a blast in the process. 100 Humans pits people of different races, gender and age to participate in fun, zany experiments to explore sex, age, happiness and any other aspect that involves being a human.
Madam C.J Walker was trail-blazing entrepreneur, philanthropist and political activist who fought through the impossible, racially charged turn of the 19th century to become the wealthiest self-made woman in America at the time of her death. The upcoming Netflix limited series wants to dive into “the untold and highly irreverent story” of the black hair care pioneer and mogul.
The series will star Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer as Madam Walker and co-star Tiffany Haddish, Carmen Ejogo, Blair Underwood and Garrett Morris. The series will have plenty of epic rivalries, tumultuous marriages and every other obstacle C.J had to overcome to earn her place at the table.
Crip Camp: A Disability Revolution
From executive producers Michelle and Barack Obama, this documentary followed a camp for disabled teens in the early ’70s. Filmmakers Nicole Newnham and Jim LeBrecht want to bring the story of the disability rights movement as these disabled teens break through social norms to grow up and become activists. It’s sure to be an interesting, inspirational story from a social group that rarely gets a chance at the microphone.
Have you ever worried about being unable to meet your parents’ expectations? Uncorked tells the story of a young man try to get his father’s approval to take over the family barbecue business while striving to become a master sommelier. Writer and first time director Prentice Penny (Insecure, Brooklyn Nine-Nine) loosely based his script on the his own family’s experiences.
“It’s rare that black people get to tell a father-son story without the father’s absence serving as the catalyst for the story,” Penny said in an interview with Variety. “That was never my experience and I think it’s more important than ever that art reflects our humanity and who we are as regular people, rather than just being defined by the color of our skin or the trauma that has happened to us. I’m incredibly grateful to Netflix and our entire producing team for not only understanding that vision, but for wholeheartedly supporting it, too.”
