Welcome to your Netflix Streaming Report for November 19, 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 W/ Bob and David, John Mulaney: The Comeback Kid, Continuum Season 4, and more.
W/ Bob and David (David Cross, Bob Odenkirk) Rated TV-MA [30 min] – After being dishonorably discharged from the Navy SEALs, Bob and David are back serving our country the way they do best: making sketch comedy. Starring David Cross, Bob Odenkirk, and John Ennis [Watch the Trailer]
It’s pretty slim pickens in terms of new titles on Netflix right now, but if there’s one thing the streaming platform has proven is that you can’t discount its original content. I’ve never seen Mr. Show nor have I given W/ Bob and David a look yet, but I’m a big fa of Bob Odenkirk’s and David Cross’s work, so I can only imagine how funny this series is.

I’m Still Here (Casey Affleck) Rated R [108 min] – Documenting Joaquin Phoenix’s transition from the acting world to a career as an aspiring rapper. Starring Joaquin Phoenix, Antony Langdon, and Carey Perloff
I’m only sharing with you the fact that I’m Still Here is available so you won’t watch it. This mockumentary is horrible and provides no value in its attempt to entertain or comment on celebrity culture. It’s a complete waste of time.
Jessica Jones Season 1 (Melissa Rosenberg) Rated TV-MA [60 min] – A former super-heroine decides to reboot her life by becoming a private investigator. Starring Krysten Ritter, Mike Colter, David Tennant, Carrie-Anne Moss, Rachael Taylor, Eka Darville, Erin Moriarty, and Wil Traval [Watch the Trailer]
[Note: This series releases at 12:01 AM, Friday, November 20]
After Marvel’s Daredevil proved to be a hit early this year it was no surprise in the excitement for Jessica Jones. Bringing audiences back into Hell’s Kitchen, Jessica Jones takes us on a different perspective of the gruff New York City neighborhood. My anticipation is not just in seeing how well the first female superhero-led property will do and how she will be received, but I’m also intrigued in the idea of popularizing a fairly unknown hero. I think Krysten Ritter is a wonderful actress and I’m really looking forward to seeing how well Jessica Jones takes off.
