New Releases on Netflix UK (17th February 2017)

Welcome, once again, to What’s On Netflix UK’s weekly round up of new additions. As we pass the middle of the month then we’ve had a surge of new additions so read on for my recommendations:

First up we have the very popular series that aired last year: “The People v. O.J. Simpson”. This dramatisation of NFL star O.J. Simpson’s trial from 1995 gives viewers a look at both the defence as well as the prosecution. With an all star cast this was a big hit on TV. Now you can watch all 10 episodes on Netflix UK.

Other popular TV series this week include season 4 of royalty-based series “Reign” and season 3 of BBC comedy “Cuckoo”.

“Project Almanac” is a found-footage, time-travel based film. When a group of teenagers find the plans to a time machine they get to work building it. Using it for personal gain, they actually end up damaging the future. They then must travel back through time to make sure they never built the machine int he first place. It’s a clever film, akin to an extended episode of the Twilight Zone.

This week we have a new Netflix Original comedy special from Katherine Ryan. “Katherine Ryan: In Trouble” is a comedy show filmed in London. Ryan, a UK-based Canadian, is a breath of fresh-air after all the US-based stand up specials we get on Netflix. The show is pretty much summed up by it’s description alone: “Stand-up comic Katherine Ryan reminisces about unusual relationships, life in the hometown she hates and the time she enraged an entire nation.”

And finally, one for the kids with “Robo-Dog”. When a child’s dog dies, his inventor father decides to create a robotic replacement. Robo-Dog also happens to have various powers and abilities to keep the family on their toes. It’s a fun, dog-based, family-friendly sci-fi film.
