The Best New Additions on Netflix UK This Week (18th September 2020)

If you want to know what to watch this weekend then we’re here to give you the lowdown on this week’s biggest and best additions on Netflix UK. Here we will give you our top picks as well as a full list of everything added to Netflix in the UK in the last week. So here are our top picks from this week’s additions on Netflix UK:

The most popular addition this week has been the 2018 drama First Man starring Ryan Gosling and Claire Foy. The film follows the life of astronaut Neil Armstrong (played by Gosling) from 1961 to 1969 as he trains to be the first man to step on the moon. Another popular addition this week is the Australian dark comedy Judy & Punch. After the violent and drunk punch lashes out at his puppeteer wife, Judy, she teams up with a bunch of outcasts to exact her revenge. In gangster film Donnie Brasco FBI agent Joe Pistone goes undercover to infiltrate the mob but then he starts to identify with the criminals he’s supposed to be taking down. Also added this week are the martial arts films Ip Man and Ip Man 2 as well as the return of U Want Me 2 Kill Him? – about a teen who plots revenge after he finds out that a woman he befriended in a chat room was killed by her abusive boyfriend.

For Netflix Originals we have the thriller The Devil All The Time where sinister characters converge around a young man devoted to protecting those he loves in a postwar backwoods town teeming with corruption and brutality. There is also a Spanish thriller The Paramedic where a recently wheelchair-bound man develops a deadly obsession with the woman who left him and unleashes a sinister revenge plot.

For TV on Netflix UK this week we have season 2 of Criminal: UK – this time with four episodes instead of three. The police procedural show is incredibly gripping and the whole story takes place in the interview room. The most popular addition, however, has been the entire series of Channel 4’s popular sci-fi comedy/drama Misfits where a group of teens on community service realise they have gained super poweres after a freak storm. Hulu original Close Enough is an adult animated comedy series about a married couple trying to move from party going 20-somethings to being parents in their 30s. We also have seasons 1-4 of Gogglebox where you get to watch people’s reactions to TV shows as well as season 2 of 60 Days In which follows undercover volunteers as they are put into the American prison system to help research problems.

If you prefer documentaries then we have the incredibly emotional Hope Frozen: A Quest to Live Twice which follows a Thai scientist and his family as they cryogenically freeze their daughter who died from cancer at a young age. Challenger is a 4-episode series that takes a look at the lead up to the 1986 Challenger shuttle disaster using a mixture of archive footage and recent interviews with families, friends and NASA staff. Season 2 of America’s Book of Secrets takes a look at the stories behind some of the country’s best known institutions like the Pentagon and the Playboy Mansion.

For kids and families this week there are a couple of films and series that will be enjoyed. First up we have the action comedy Johnny English Strikes Again which sees the tech-challenged former agent emerge from retirement to catch a hacker that released the details of every secret agent. In Horrid Henry’s Gross Day Out Henry plans to watch a TV marathon of his favourite show “Gross Class Zero” and all the characters begin to come to life. For kids TV there is the new animated dinosaur series Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous as well as an animal-hospital style Izzy’s Koala World.
