This Week’s New Releases on Netflix UK (4th 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:

The start of a new month always brings an amazing array new additions to Netflix UK, and this week was no exception so without further ado here are my top picks for this week.

There have been quite a few ITV programmes added this week firstly we have the highly emotional Little Boy Blue which tells the true story of the murder of 11-year-old Rhys Jones in Croxteth Liverpool, and how the perpetrators were eventually brought to justice – you’ll need a box of tissues handy for this one. We also have Prime Suspect 1973 which tells the story of a young 22-year-old Jane Tennison’s first days in the police force where she endures sexism and gets thrown in at the deep end in a murder enquiry.

The pick of the films that have been added this week are Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, which stars Will Ferrell as NASCAR driver Ricky Bobby who’s talent is put to the test when a formula one driver joins the circuit. Also added this week was Trailer Park Boys: The Movie and Trailer Park Boys: Countdown to Liquor Day, which follows the antics of trailer park residents Ricky, Julian and Bubbles. Finally for those of you who like foreign films, there’s the Spanish comedy Toc Toc which is set in the waiting room of an international well-known doctor expert in treatments for TOC (“Trastorno Obsesivo Compulsivo”; Spanish for “Obsessive Compulsive Disorder” or OCD) with the waiting patients having many adventures and misadventures.

For the younger Netflix viewer this week there have been a variety of Pocoyo specials added, alongside season 1 of PJ Masks where Three children become superheroes at night. During the school day a problem arises, and during the night the culprit is found by the PJ Masks and the problem gets solved by sharing ideas. If you’re looking for a film to watch with your youngsters this bank holiday weekend there’s The Angry Birds Movie , which tells the story of why the birds are so angry and why they hate those little green pigs so much.

Notable Netflix original additions are The Rain which is set six years after a brutal virus carried by the rain wiped out almost all humans in Scandinavia. And Dear White People volume 2 which follows on from where the first season left off. Other popular additions include the classic Some Like It Hot, the great documentary Requiem for the American Dream and the wonderful animated mini-series Over the Garden Wall.

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