Netflix Now: Colin Kaepernick's Magic Arm Edition

Shark Week, The Man From Beijing, He-Man, and more on Netflix Instant

Super Bowl XLVII is a few days away, meaning that fairweather football fans like myself have something to watch this weekend (even if it's just for the commercials and high-priced movie ads). As a guy raised in the Bay Area, I'm rooting for the 49ers even though I haven't watched football regularly since Steve Young was QB. But from what I've seen in terms of highlights, Colin Kaepernick must have secret devil magicks in the ink for his tattoos.

If you don't want to watch the Super Bowl this weekend, you do have a couple of things on Watch Instantly that may catch your attention and substitute for football. For the burliness of the game, there's the updated version of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. For the brutality of the game, some Shark Week stuff is ready to stream at your convenience. And for the pageantry of the game, there's Toddlers & Tiaras.

To be honest, very few big-time releases on Watch Instantly this week. Maybe the most notable thing is Graham Chapman: Anatomy of a Liar, which is basically a making-of for A Liar's Autobiography. Actually, that's not all that notable, maybe... You should just enjoy the game this weekend.

After the cut is the new stuff on Netflix Instant, a little bit of football, and a little something for you hockey folks, especially if you dig the Calgary Flames.

New additions to Netflix Watch Instantly apply only to readers in the United States. For those in other parts of the world, your choices may vary.
