Netflix Now: Xander Markham’s Television Edition


There’s an influx of UK TV shows this week. I haven’t heard of a lot of them, but there are certainly some good ones. Spaced is on Netflix! Spaced is great. Go watch Spaced now. If you’ve watched it recently, you could check out Kingdom, a show about Stephen Fry being brilliant or something. There’s also a ton of Bond movies. I’m guessing this is to make up for adding America’s Funniest Home Videos.

If you’re a good, red-blooded American, you might want some nice holiday movies. There’s The Christmas Toy, a movie about talking toys made by Jim Henson, or Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas by the same man. Of course, if you’re tired of your regular, boring-old Christmas movies, you can always check out Hercules Saves Christmas, a movie about a talking dog defense lawyer. There’s also Fireplace for Your Home, a program that allows you to pretend you have a fireplace in your home. Or that your TV is on fire. That’s always fun to pretend.

There are like 130 of these things and I have a fever so I am pretty sure that Netflix’s site is a physical world at this point. Hit the jump to explore and meet unicorns and stuff!

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.
