New Releases on Netflix UK (18th March)

Published on EST


I think it’s safe to say that this has been a very good week for Netflix UK subscribers; whether you’re a fan of Marvel comics, British TV, stand up comedy, animation, documentaries or movies in general, there’s a good set of additions for you.

The obvious big addition this week is season 2 of “Marvel’s Daredevil” – all 13 episodes are available right now and, if you haven’t seen it already, you should watch season 1 first. Series 2 picks up with Matt Murdoch (Daredevil) and Foggy Nelson running their lawyers firm but also having to deal with a new vigilante, Frank Castle (Punisher). Along the way, Murdoch’s old girlfriend Elektra comes onto the scene too. It will be interesting to see where they go with season 2 as the first one was, to say the least, intense. If you’ve watched it already then let us know what you think – but no spoilers!

My favourite Marvel movie has also arrived this week. “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” from 2014 sees Cap working with Black Widow and SHIELD on an undercover operation. When Cap finds out a number of secrets about the organisation he works for, his world is turned upside-down as he tries to fight for his American ideal. A pivotal film in the Marvel cinematic universe, this is a great action and espionage movie – with a few super-heroes thrown in for good measure.

“Fantastic Four” (the 2005 version and not the 2015 reworking) came this week as well. After a space experiment goes wrong a team of four scientists gain super powers that they use in order to protect the world.

As for comedy, we have a new Netflix Original show – “Jimmy Carr: Funny Business”. This special show was recorded in late 2015 and sees deadpan comic Jimmy Carr with his trademark one-liners and a mixture of old and new jokes.

Following on we have two live shows from Jack Whitehall and, in my personal opinion, his stand-up shows are where he excels – yes, he’s good in Bad Education, but these are far better. The 2 shows are “Jack Whitehall: Live” (from 2012) and “Jack Whitehall Gets Around: Live from Wembley Arena” (from 2014).

Other highlights this week include series 2 of “Peaky Blinders”, “He Never Died”, “The Wipers Times” and children’s favourite “Hotel Transylvania”
