Best New Movies and Series Added to Netflix So Far This Week

All American (Season 5)

Rating: TV-14
Language: English
Genre: Drama, Sport
Cast: Daniel Ezra, Samantha Logan, Michael Evans Behling
Writer: April Blair
Runtime: 45 min

Featuring in the top 10s since its debut on May 23rd is the latest season of All American, consisting of 20 new episodes bringing the total on Netflix to 91.

As you may know, the series focuses on Spencer James, who was tapped to play football for Beverly Hills High, and over the course of the five seasons, we’ve seen the ups and downs of his professional career and personal life.


Victim/Suspect (2023)

Rating: R
Language: English
Genre: Documentary, Crime
Director: Nancy Schwartzman
Cast: Rachel de Leon, Amanda Pike
Runtime: 90 min / 1h 30m

First debuting at the Sundance Film Festival a little earlier this year is the investigative documentary following young women who have told police they’ve been sexually assaulted. After no investigation or follow-through has been conducted, they’re instead accused of a crime instead.

We won’t beat around the bush; this might be a tough watch for many, so viewer discretion is advised.


FUBAR (Season 1)

Number of episodes: 8
Rating: TV-MA
Language: English
Genre: Action, Adventure, Thriller
Cast: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Monica Barbaro, Milan Carter, Gabriel Luna, Jay Baruchel, Fortune Feimster

Netflix’s own big new title for the week that it’s throwing its weight behind is FUBAR, the new series that sees Arnold Schwarzenegger in a TV role for the first time.

The series is about a father and daughter discovering they’re secretly working for the CIA, and a new mission sees them tangled up.

Reviews have been all over the place thus far, with critics ultimately mixed carrying a 48/100 on Metacritic thus far. The Daily Beast was the least kind referring to it as a “horribly scratched record.”


World of Goo Remastered

First released in 2008, World of Goo has been an endearing puzzle game that’s been released on many platforms over the years, and now it’s the turn of Netflix to get a remastered mobile port available on both Google Play and iOS devices.

The game comes to Netflix with new updates to double the original resolution for a remastered gameplay experience and cloud saves within your Netflix profiles.
