Autumn has arrived, it’s getting colder outside and it’s officially prime Netflix binge season. I mean, really, what’s better than staying in all tucked up on a freezing night while autoplay keeps giving us the goods? And with Netflix’s catalogue constantly being added to, it can be hard to settle on what to watch. From comedy to drama, movies to TV — even K Drama and Bollywood — the choices are endless.
That’s where I come in. Here’s everything worth binging that’s dropping on Netflix this month. Now you have no excuse for just rewatching old episodes of Black Mirror.
American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace (Thursday 4th): From the dudes behind People vs OJ Simpson, this new American Crime Story is hotly anticipated. Also features a ripped Darren Criss in a red speedo… I know what I’ll be watching this month.
Our Planet (Friday 5th): The planet’s favourite grandpa, David Attenborough, is back with another stunning docuseries. Our Planet looks into the changing nature of the Earth, climate change and what we can do to help before time runs out. Because sometimes you need a stern talking to from granddad to really kick yourself into gear.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina – Season 2 (Friday 5th): The gritty new Sabrina is back, and now that she has her full powers, she’s ready to cause some mischief. Oh, and remember that whole thing about Hot Satan? Yeah. Sign me up.
You vs. Wild (Wednesday 10th): If you’re a little power-hungry and love the idea of making Bear Grylls do crazy shit then this is for you. The choose-your-own-adventure style show lets you call the shots. I wonder if there will be a drink your own piss option…
La La Land (Monday 1st): If you, like me, are one of the few people who still haven’t seen La La Land, then now’s our time. The hyped and controversial (hello Oscars 2017) musical is available for streaming now, so get on your tippity-tappity shoes.
Unicorn Store (Friday 5th): Brie Larson’s directorial debut is a hyper-coloured dream, and features Samuel L. Jackson in a bright pink suit. After a 20-something artist receives a mystery invitation, she delves into a world where dreams come true and unicorns exist. Captain Marvel and Nick Fury getting all pink and bubbly together? I’m down.
The Perfect Date (Friday 12th): Did you think the only thing missing from To All The Boys was Peter Kavinsky pimping himself out to teenage girls? Well, your dreams have come true. Watch along as Noah Centineo turns himself into a high school dance male escort in order to save for college. Looks delightfully teen romance predictable, and I’m a sucker for that shit so sign me up.
Les Misérables (Wednesday 17th) – Another musical is hitting out Netflix screens. The mammoth 2 hour 40 minute operatic blockbuster is here for your mum to hog the TV with. Brace yourself for ‘Do You Hear The People Sing’ to be stuck in your head for days.
