Netflix Streaming Report: Dawn of the Dragon Racers, Marco Polo, Pee-wee’s Playhouse, and More

Marco Polo Now On Netflix

Welcome to your Netflix Streaming Report for December 18, 2014. After the long week you deserve a relaxing staycation with a bowl of popcorn, a bucket of ice cream, and only your Netflix queue to judge you. This past week, Netflix Watch Instant has been kind enough to supply us with Dragons: Dawn of the Dragon Racers, Marco Polo, Pee-wee’s Playhouse, and more, which you’ll find after the break, as well as a list of titles expiring on January 1.

Pee-wee’s Playhouse (Paul Reubens) (Season 1-65) Pee-Wee Herman and his friends have wacky, imaginative fun in his unique playhouse. Starring Paul Reubens, John Paragon, and Phil Hartman

Relive the ’80s with Pee-wee Herman! I’m not sure how this was green lit back in the day, but rewatching this classic gem of a children’s show is a hoot. (Watch it now)

Marco Polo Netflix Show

Marco Polo (Season 1) (John Fusco) [60 min] – In a world replete with greed, betrayal, sexual intrigue and rivalry, “Marco Polo” is based on the famed explorer’s adventures in Kublai Khan’s court in 13th century China. Starring Lorenzo Richelmy, Benedict Wong, and Joan Chen

Netflix wants to get on that risque, political Game of Thrones action. Bow chicka wah wah. (Watch it now)

Star Trek Generations Movie Nexus

Star Trek: Generations (David Carson) Captain Picard, with the help of supposedly dead Captain Kirk, must stop a madman willing to murder on a planetary scale in order to enter an energy ribbon. Starring Patrick Stewart, William Shatner, and Malcolm McDowell

Definitely a great moment in Star Trek fandom when two series collide to create one of the best collaborations of a shared universe. (Watch it now)

Nick Offerman: American Ham (Jordan Vogt-Roberts) [78 min] – A live taping of Nick Offerman’s one-man show at New York’s historic Town Hall theater, featuring a collection of anecdotes, songs and woodworking/oral-sex techniques. Starring Nick Offerman

Because you’re a fan of Parks and Recreation, which you can watch on Netflix too, or because you like to laugh, you should watch Nick Offerman’s stand up. (Watch it now)

In Your Eyes Unrated (Brin Hill) [105 min] – Two seemingly unconnected souls from different corners of the United States make a telepathic bond that allows them to see, hear and feel the others experiences, creating a bond that apparently can’t be broken. Starring Nikki Reed, Zoe Kazan, and Jennifer Grey

I like Zoe Kazan, she has a great spark and knows how to pull the strings of my indie heart. (Watch it now)

Dragons: Dawn of the Dragon Racers (Elaine Bogan, John Sanford) [26 min] – Dawn of the Dragon Racers, is a short film describing how Dragon Racing was invented. Hiccup and all his friends from the dragon academy fight about who really invented it. Starring Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse

What DreamWorks is doing with the Dragon series is great, and if they continue to build this mega universe it will only get better with these filler stories. (Watch it now)
