New To Netflix In November 2019

If you listen real close, you can almost hear the sound of your future self telling your boss to get stuffed for a glorious week (or two) of wining and dining with the family, kicking the footy around and not having to worry about this or that deadline. Now, Netflix is a clever bunch of content-slingers and are looking to capitalise on your impending downtime with a mammoth drop of new shows, “TV Events” (whatever the heck that is), films and docos, over the next two months. And oh boy, Netflix-November ain’t messing around. From the return of The End Of The Fucking World to a tell-all doco on the founder of Bikram Yoga, Man Of Many’s filtered list of what’s New To Netflix In November in 2019 is simply unmissable.

ORIGINAL SERIES

Atypical: Season 3

For those unfamiliar, Atypical is a heartfelt and at times, extremely funny series. A show that unpacks the intricacies of autism through a teenage lens, Sam is now headed into his first year of college and will grapple with new challenges; from making friends to managing his schedule (and a major case of the feels).

Queer Eye: We’re in Japan!

The “Fab Five” are back bby: and just in case you couldn’t tell from the subtle series title, this time they are bringing their not-at-all patronising expertise to Tokyo. They’ll be working to “make-better four heroes” (Heroes!????!) while experiencing Japanese cuisine, fashion, design, grooming and culture firsthand. Yipee.

Release date: 1st November 2019

The End of the F***ing World: Season 2

For those who might have missed the first season, The End Of The Fucking World S1 was without question, a brilliant piece of TV, or Webtv, or content – whatever we’re supposed to call it now.

Release date: 5th November 2019

Busted!: Season 2

Amateur detectives will attempt to untangle a string of mystifying cases, which may be connected to an enigmatic figure known as the Flower Killer, which, might we say is a very ominous and very badass nickname for a murderer. We couldn’t be more excited for the villain of season 3: the Hug Monster.

Release date: 8th November 2019

The Stranded

A little bit ‘Lost’, a little bit ‘Gossip Girl’, The Stranded follows 18-year-old Kraam who survives a devastating tsunami along with thirty-six of his fellow students at an elite private high school on a remote island in the Andaman Sea. As mysterious events start happening on the island, it quickly becomes clear that no one is coming to rescue them and Kraam must lead the students to rescue themselves, without a full-blown Lord Of The Flies scenario breaking out.

Release date: 14th November 2019

The Crown: Season 3

A powerhouse of popularity, The Crown is back for a third season. Set in the swinging sixties while England confronts an economic downturn and a fierce bout of nationalism, the royals are scrutinized as aristocratic freeloaders. Poor them.

Final Space: Season 2

NETFLIX TELEVISION EVENT

American Son

Now we’re not really sure what is different between a Netflix Television Event and a Netflix film, due to the suspiciously similar traits; such as run-time and well, being a friggen movie, but we sure do love em’. Based on the acclaimed Broadway play, the Netflix Television Event AMERICAN SON tells the story of Kendra Ellis-Connor (Emmy-nominee Kerry Washington), the mother of a missing teenage boy, as she struggles to put the pieces together in a South Florida police station.

Release date: 1st November 2019

NETFLIX FILM

The Man Without Gravity

And now for something completely different: The Man Without Gravity follows the life and times of a gravity-defying baby raised in seclusion who then grows up to become an international celebrity. Of course, he longs for an ordinary life but then we’d pretty fkn bored so let’s have none of that.

Release date: 1st November 2019

Drive

No, not a remake of the wonderful film starring Ryan Gosling who speaks about three lines of dialogue throughout the flick, Netflix’ Drive instead follows a notorious thief who allies with a street racer for a grand heist. Promising an elaborate game of deceit with authorities, who have their own dirty secrets to boot, we’ll be honest this will most likely get a look-in from the team here at Man Of Many.

Release date: 1st November 2019

Let It Snow

Finally! A Christmas movie. Let It Snow is based around a snowstorm hitting a small town on a cold (well, dah) Christmas Eve. Somehow, this snowstorm ends up have a huge impact on the friendships, love lives and futures of several high school seniors.

Release date: 8th November 2019

Klaus

Featuring Jason Schwartzman & J.K Simmons, Klaus boasts and unnecessarily convoluted synopsis and what we can only assume comes as a result of an even more cluttered plot. Long story short: it’s animated, it’s Christmassy, and it will most likely be a solid 4/10. But if you time it just right, just near enough to Christmas day, you may just be filled with such cheer (and liquor) that you’ll end up enjoying it, anyway.

Release date: 15th November 2019

Earthquake Bird

Look, we’ll be honest: there was some level of excitement when we read the title ‘Earthquake Bird”. This is in part because it’s a fucking awesome name and if taken literally, it would also be a fucking awesome thing to exist: a bird with the power to drop sneaky earthquakes. Instead, you’ll be treated to a grum story set in 1980’s Japan about an enigmatic expat who is suspected of killing her friend. Bummer.

Release date: 15th November 2019

The Irishman

Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci star in Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman; an epic saga of organized crime in post-war America told through the eyes of World War II veteran Frank Sheeran. Spanning decades, the film chronicles one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in American history, the disappearance of legendary union boss Jimmy Hoffa. One for die-hard Scorsese fans, methinks.

Seth Meyers: Lobby Baby
