Ricky Gervais: SuperNature – Picture: Netflix

Welcome to your first daily recap of what’s new on Netflix in the United States. We’ve got six new releases to cover that have touched down so far. We’ll also check in with the top 10s which has seen Stranger Things re-enter ahead of Season 4 hitting this Friday. 

While this is the first roundup for this week, if you missed any of last week’s additions, you can see all 35 new movies and shows added here.

On the removals front, today is your very last day to watch Uncut Gems on Netflix. The Adam Sandler movie is perhaps the best the actor has ever done and is well worth a watch. We’d also recommend starting binge watching Bad Blood given it leaves next week.

Given we’ve got Stranger Things coming up this week, the schedule for this week is a little lighter than most weeks. This is to ensure all attention is on the series which has been receiving rave reviews so far.

Best New Titles on Netflix So Far This Week

Ricky Gervais: SuperNature (2022)

Genre: Stand-up
Cast: Ricky Gervais
Runtime: 64 mins

Ricky Gervais has for decades now been one of the highest-grossing comedians and he returns to Netflix for his second special which, by headlines already produced, is set to be rather controversial, to say the least.

Nothing is off-limits for the British comedian which is no doubt going to land Netflix in similar hot water it was in following Dave Chappelle’s special added last year.

Sea of Love (Season 1)

Genre: Kids, Animation
Cast: Guy William Burnett, Anchasa Bhurichayawarodom, Tarakorn Visessintop, Tarit Matt Amatayakul, Athalie de Koning, Kelly B. Jones
Runtime: 11 mins

sea of love netflix kids series

While CoComelon continues to reign supreme on the Netflix kids top 10s, hoping to make an impact is this new animated series aimed at pre-schoolers which comes from The Monk Studios.

Here’s what you can expect from the new series:

“Sea animal friends Bruda, Bobbi, Wayu and Puri go on mini adventures in the ocean, where relatable, everyday moments come with a splash of magic!”

Toolsidas Junior (2022)

Genre: Drama, Family, Sport
Director: Mridul Mahendra
Cast: Sara Arjun, Varun Buddhadev, Sanjay Dutt
Writer: Mridul Mahendra
Runtime: 132 min

Much has been written about when it comes to Netflix’s strategy in India but this year, their strategy seems to have been to get the biggest movies from the region from other providers (whether that be released theatrically or otherwise) and that trend continues with Toolsidas Junior.

The Hindi-language movie is about a young boy who seeks to master the game of snooker to defend his father’s legacy after a humiliating loss. But first, he’ll need help from a hardened pro.
