TAG (2018) is now available to stream on Netflix UK

The second week of January hasn’t been as busy as the first, but there’s still plenty to choose from the 23 new additions on Netflix UK this week. Here’s what’s new on Netflix UK this week and the top 10s for January 8th, 2021.

First of all, here are the past week’s top highlights on Netflix UK:

TAG (2018)

Director: Jeff Tomsic
Genre: Action, Comedy | Runtime: 100 Minutes
Cast: Ed Helms, Lil Rel Howery, Jon Hamm, Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson

A surprisingly funny and charming comedy, it’s a great throwback for any adult who spent their days outside playing a game of it or bulldog.

Five childhood friends go above and beyond to play their annual game of tag. Out of the five, only Jerry Pierce has never been tagged. But when Jerry plans on retiring from the game for good, the remaining four team up to bring him down.

History of Swear Words (Season 1) N

Seasons: 1 | Episodes: 6
Genre: Documentary, Comedy | Runtimes: 20 Minutes
Hosted By: Nicholas Cage

For hundreds of years, if not thousands, swear words have been a large part of our culture. Hosted by Nicholas Cage, each episode dives into the history of some of our most popular swear words. From f**k, sh*t, bitch, d**k, pus**y and damn, we learn the history behind the curse words, and their cultural impact, while a bunch of celebrity guests also take part to express their feelings and thoughts on them too.

Creating The Queen’s Gambit (2021) N

Genre: Documentary | Runtime: 14 Minutes

The sleeper hit of 2020, The Queen’s Gambit, was watched by millions of subscribers around the world. Over three months since the series was released, and millions continue to watch it, so it’s only apt that Netflix has released a behind the scenes special on how the special limited series was created.
