Welcome to your Netflix Streaming Report for July 23, 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 Glee: The Final Season, Bojack Horseman (Season 2), and more.
Bojack Horseman: The Complete Second Season (Raphael Bob-Waksberg) Rated TV-MA [25 min] – Meet the most beloved sitcom horse of the 90s – 20 years later. BoJack Horseman was the star of the hit TV show “Horsin’ Around,” but today he’s washed up, living in Hollywood, complaining about everything, and wearing colorful sweaters. Starring Will Arnett, Aaron Paul, and Alison Brie
I can’t believe Season 2 of Bojack Horseman is already out. I haven’t even seen the first season yet and it feels like yesterday when it released. I’ve still heard positive things about this season, but this show hasn’t really taken off like other wacky adult cartoons like Rick and Morty or Archer.
Glee: The Complete Sixth Season (Ian Brennan, Brad Falchuk, and Ryan Murphy) Rated TV-PG [44 min] – A group of ambitious misfits try to escape the harsh realities of high school by joining a glee club, where they find strength, acceptance and, ultimately, their voice, while working to pursue dreams of their own. Starring Jane Lynch, Matthew Morrison, Darren Criss, Jenna Ushkowitz, Chord Overstreet, Lea Michele, Chris Colfer, Naya Rivera, and Melissa Benoist
Watch the Final Season of Glee, if you dare. #DontStopBelieving
Perfect Stranger (James Foley) Rated R [109 min] – A journalist goes undercover to ferret out businessman Harrison Hill as her childhood friend’s killer. Posing as one of his temps, she enters into a game of online cat-and-mouse. Starring Halle Berry, Bruce Willis, and Giovanni Ribisi
I’ve never seen this movie, but it’s really slim pickens this week.
Set Fire to the Stars (Andy Goddard) [97 min] – An aspiring poet in 1950s New York has his ordered world shaken when he embarks on a week-long retreat to save his hell raising hero, Dylan Thomas. Starring Elijah Wood, Celyn Jones, and Kelly Reilly
Again, haven’t seen it, but Elijah Wood has been in some pretty unique roles in a post Lord of the Rings career. Set Fire to the Stars has not received any good reviews, but it’s here if you want to check it out.
Teacher of the Year (Jason Strouse) [82 min] – Surrounded by the eccentric faculty of Truman High School, Mitch Carter wins the California Teacher of the Year award and immediately receives a tempting offer that may force him to leave his job. Starring Matt Letscher, Keegan-Michael Key, and Sunny Mabrey
Now Keegan-Michael Key is supposedly doing his substitute teach comedy based on one of Key & Peele’s sketches. So maybe Teacher of the Year is just a warm up exercise for him?
What will you be watching this weekend?
Look forward to more new titles from the Netflix Streaming Report every Thursday on TTRC.
