Here we will give you our top picks as well as a full list of everything added to the streaming service in the last week. So here are our top picks from this week’s additions on Netflix USA:

It’s New Year’s Eve which means 2021 is almost over and what better way to celebrate that than with a tongue-in-cheek review of the past year – and Charlie Brooker’s Death to 2021 does just that. Hugh Grant, Diane Morgan, Lucy Liu, Laurence Fishburne and more star in this mockumentary-style look at 2021 from storming the Capitol to vaccine rollouts and the G20 Summit. In the Japanese sci-fi film The Door into Summer a pioneering roboticist awakens in 2025 after decades in cryosleep where he seeks a way back to 1995 in order to change the past and reunite with his adopted sister. Netflix film The Lost Daughter is based on the book by Elena Ferrante and tells the story of a woman on a quiet seaside vacation – but it takes an unsettling turn when her fixation on a young mother staying at a nearby villa awakens memories from her past. Finally for films this week we have

For something a bit more lighthearted we also have the brand new stand-up comedy special Jimmy Carr: His Dark Material as well as season 3 of The Standups.

A popular addition in TV shows today is season 4 of Karate Kid spin-off Cobra Kai which sees the Miyagi-Do and Eagle Fang dojos joining forces to take down Cobra Kai at the All Valley Under 18 Karate Tournament. Swedish comedy series Anxious People follows a group of strangers who were held hostage in an open house by a failed bank robber and the subsequent investigation after the robber simply vanishes. The new Harlan Coben crime mystery has also arrived this week: In Stay Close Carlton Flynn vanishes 17 years to the night after Stewart Green also disappeared, setting off a chain reaction in the lives of people connected to both men.

Documentaries this week include the true crime series Crime Scene: The Times Square Killer – a three-part series looking at the ‘Torso Killer’ in 1970s New York. In Stories of a Generation – with Pope Francis, a number of inspiring over 70s share poignant life lessons and pivotal choices from their remarkable journeys.

For children and families this week we have the new CGI animated Seal Team which sees fearless seal Quinn assemble a squad of misfit recruits to stand up to ruthless sharks with razor-sharp teeth and reclaim the open sea. Lastly, for this week, we have the animated Hilda and the Mountain King which sees Hilda wake up in the body of a troll and she must use her wits and courage to get back home, become human again — and save the city of Trolberg.

See you next year!
