This Week’s New Releases on Netflix UK (11th May 2018)

Another week has passed and, in case you missed our social media feeds, we’re here to give you the run down on this week’s additions just in time for your weekend binge sessions. 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 UK:

It’s been a quiet week but there has been some great TV additions as well as a few movies worth watching too. The most popular movie this week has to be the classic Martin Scorsese crime thriller Taxi Driver starring Robert de Niro as a taxi driver who descends into madness while trying to understand society’s moral decline. Other movie additions include Bad Neighbours 2 and Jeepers Creepers 3.

Hari Kondabolu has been in the news recently as the man who questioned The Simpson’s with “The Problem With Apu” but today he has a new stand-up comedy special with Hari Kondabolu: Warn Your Relatives. There’s also a new stand-up special from Mexican comic Carlos Ballarta: Furia Ñera.

The popular TV additions this week include Netflix Original thriller Safe which sees Dexter star Michael C Hall as a father trying to locate his missing daughter who vanished from their quiet, gated-community. Evil Genius is a documentary series that tells the story of America’s most diabolical bank-heist where a piza delivery man was forced to rob a bank – with a bomb strapped around his neck. New seasons of Poldark (season 2) and Schitt’s Creek (season 4) have also been added.

For the younger viewers there’s talking-dog shenanigans of Pup Star: World Tour as well as season 5 of the animated series Spirit Riding Free. Also new this week is Netflix Original series The Who Was? Show – a history show aimed at kids in a similar style to Horrible Histories but focusing on two people per episode rather than a specific subject.

For all the Netflix Originals added today you can read our separate post.
