Netflix Now: State of The Onion Edition

Futurama, Safety Not Guaranteed, Doomsday Book, and more on Netflix Instant

The state of The Onion is strong. My favorite unused Onion headline was something like: "Man Uses Spork as Knife."

You may now applaud.

Whereas last week's installment of Netflix Now featured an overwhelming deluge of titles added to Watch Instantly, this week is pretty spare. Some new Futurama stuff is up on it, as well as Colin Trevorrow's Safety Not Guaranteed, the Korean anthology film Doomsday Book, and Craig Zobel's Compliance.

Also of note: Jack and Diane, a lesbian love story that has something to do with werewolves; Paul Greengrass's 9/11 movie United 93; and... You know, that's mostly it.

Check out what's new on Netflix Instant after the cut, and also learn more about the world from America's Finest News Source.

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.
