Welcome to your Netflix Streaming Report for October 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 Jane the Virgin Season 1, The Lazarus Effect, Sword Art Online II, and more.
Jane the Virgin Season 1 (Jennie Snyder Urman) Rated TV-14 [43 min] – Jane is a 23 year old hard-working, religious Latina woman, whose family tradition and vow to save her virginity until marriage to a long time boyfriend and detective, is shattered when her doctor mistakenly artificially inseminates her during a checkup. And to make matters worse, the biological donor is a married man, a former playboy, and cancer survivor who is not only the new owner of the hotel where Jane works, but was also her former teenage crush. Starring Gina Rodriguez, Andrea Navedo, Yael Grobglas, Justin Baldoni, Ivonne Coll, Brett Dier, Jaime Camil, and Anthony Mendez
The CW has found a perfect harmony of drama and comedy for its young adult driven audience with Jane the Virgin. There’s a new wave of soap-y, guilty pleasure series floating around these days that get little love because of their content, when in actuality they’re fairly well done and highly addictive. It’s like Degrassi: The Next Generation for more mature audiences.
The Lazarus Effect (David Gelb) Rated PG-13 [83 min] – A group of medical students discover a way to bring dead patients back to life. Starring Olivia Wilde, Mark Duplass, Evan Peters, and Sarah Bolger
I’m only listing The Lazarus Effect because you might recognize it from its marketing efforts earlier this year when it released. And to that affect, I would advise you to avoid this movie at all costs. Even if it sparked just a minuscule amount of interest, don’t do it. This movie is basic to the nth degree, they also shortened the title of it to Lazarus, most likely to throw you off to think it’s something different.
