One of the great things about Netflix are their Netflix Originals – be it films or series made by Netflix themselves or exclusive content available only on Netflix after it airs on regular TV. Every week we will give you a round up of new Netflix Originals becoming available in the next week. We will aim to post every week on Wednesday evening with what will be available over the coming week starting the following Friday.

Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return (Series – Season 1)
Where do I start…If you’re not already familiar, “MST3K” has a cult following stemming back to the original series which wasn’t hugely popular and aired at unsociable hours however the internet being the wonder it is, connected the masses to the concept of fictional character Joel who is a janitor. Joel has been captured and sent into space to a planet far away, destined to review really old, cheesy B-Movies whilst his captors monitor his brain. He fashions himself some robot friends to keep him company and together they critique the material sent to them with some comedic value. Essentially, with each episode you are watching a bad film with a great commentary. A collection of the original episodes have also recently been added to Netflix.
Available in U.S, Canada, U.K, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand from Friday 14th April 2017.
