Netflix Now: Epic Social Media Meltdown Edition


By now you’ve probably heard of Amy’s Baking Company in Scottsdale, AZ. The restaurant owners had an epic social media meltdown because of a bats**t crazy appearance on Kitchen Nightmares with Gordon Ramsay. If you haven’t heard about this, you have now, and may whatever deity or building you worship have mercy on your soul before you stream something on Netflix.

The biggies I can spot this week are Kill List, The Inbetweeners Movie, Antichrist, and Y Tu Mama Tabien, with House at the End of the Street and Freaky Deaky bringing up the rear. I’m pretty interested in seeing Walk Away Renee since I really dug Tarnation way back when that film came out.

After the cut, all the new stuff on Netflix Watch Instantly since last week’s 753-title deluge, including the return of the Netflix Now Awards. Also, some crazy ass chefs.

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.
