All this week’s Netflix Originals (Available from Friday 20th July 2018)

One of the great things about Netflix is their Netflix Original content – 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 Thursday evening with what will be available over the coming week. Perfect if you’re looking to check out what new Originals are available to watch over your weekend or if you’re planning a week-long Netflix binge watch! This area is exclusively for Netflix Originals, for general Netflix additions and removals or to view the current full catalogue check out your regional New On Netflix website.

As Netflix increase their Original content, here’s our ‘Top Picks’ list for this week (Full summary of additions at the end of the post).

Amazing Interiors

The show where reasonably ordinary looking exteriors hide ‘Amazing Interiors’. Get ready to be shocked as the show delves into the private homes of individuals with a flair for the outlandish. Interior designs in practice include a giant diving tank, movie set models and even a roller-coaster. These eccentric homeowners will wow you with homes you could only imagine.

Dark Tourist

Tourism has a dark side and ‘‘Tickled’ (2016) documentary maker David Farrier is out to discover it in this fascinating documentary series. The New Zealand film maker travels to some of the darkest corners of the world to try and uncover the appeal of the grisly and gruesome in dark tourism. From meeting violent gangs to taking part in small village practices to visiting highly radioactively contaminated areas, Farrier really does push the boundaries in order to answer the question of whether being closer to death makes us feel more alive!

Father of the Year

If  the trailer is anything to go by, then this comedy film is bound to make you laugh out loud. When a recent college graduate, Ben (Joey Bragg) and his friend have a stupid debate in a bar over who would win in a fight between their very different fathers, Ben’s useless father (David Spade) decides to prove himself in an actual fight. With Ben’s interception the night does not end well and Wayne must now work even harder to make amends for the excuse of a father he has been and really make Ben proud.

Final Space

‘Gary Goodspeed’ and his side kick ‘Mooncake’ the alien (both voiced by Olan Rogers) are tasked with finding the end of the universe, if it even exists, in this adult animated series. The show already aired back in February on American network TBS but the whole series will drop on to Netflix this week. British actor David Tennant (Doctor Who) also lends his voice to the show as character Lord Commander. Critics have gone as far as to say it could hail a following to rival the likes of Rick and Morty’s fanbase. Why not give it a binge watch and let us know what you think? Season two has already been commissioned and will no doubt be added to Netflix after its American airing in 2019.
