Welcome to your Netflix Streaming Report for January 15, 2015. 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 Automata, Bird People, Wahlburgers, and more, which you can find after the jump.

I had heard interesting rumblings about this film – I believe on the /Filmcast – on how bizarre and artsy it is and that it’s worth a gander. It has kind of a long run time though. (Watch it now)
