It’s March 31 and that, of course, means we are only one day away from getting a new batch of TV shows and movies on Netflix.
Here’s a look some old classics, original shows and recent blockbusters hitting the streaming platform in April.
Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return
It’s been 20 years the classic comedy series first went off the air, but the premise—comedians watching terrible B-movies and providing live commentary—remains as fresh as every.
Documentary Now!: Season 2
Documentary Now remains one of TV’s weirdest and funniest shows. In each episode, Fred Armisen and Bill Hader parody a documentary or docuseries (like this clip sending up Chef’s Table) in the most absurd ways possible.[videos] [/videos]
Bill Nye Saves the World: Season 1
Bill Nye’s new show promises to “tackle a topic from a scientific point of view, dispelling myths, and refuting anti-scientific claims that may be espoused by politicians, religious leaders or titans of industry.” It should be controversial and a lot of fun.[videos] [/videos]
It’s not Christopher Nolan’s best well-known film, but if you’re fan of the revolutionary filmmaker, it’s still a twisting, mind-bending, visually-stunning epic.[videos] [/videos]
Queen of Katwe
Based on the true story of a real-life missionary and a chess prodigy, Queen of Katwe is an inspiring look at faith, hard work and hope.
Steven Spielberg’s classic WWII drama remains one of the great historical epics ever created.[videos] [/videos]
Dear White People: Season 1
Based on the breakout film, the show offers a funny, biting look at race in America. (Warning, the trailer contains some strong language.)
OK, so it’s not exactly a classic, but if you’re looking for a dose of ’90s nostalgia, look no further than the sports comedy starring John Candy.
The Get Down Part II
The epic look at the history of hip-hop returns.
Kubo and the Two Strings
Even if it’s only to experience the jaw-dropping animation, Kubo and the Two Strings is worth the watch.
