Happy Friday! Welcome to your weekend roundup of everything newly added to Netflix this week, including some top watch picks from myself and what’s been trending on Netflix in the top 10s over the past seven days.
As a quick aside, you may notice we haven’t been doing daily recaps as much. We’re still playing with this format and may soon return to more frequent summaries. However, we’ve been told Google is punishing us for doing this, so we will try more infrequent but beefier weekly posts like this one!
Want to know what’s still to come to Netflix throughout the rest of November? You can find our updated preview for the rest of the month here, including seasons 1 to 5 of Young Sheldon, which will be touching down next week.
Best New Movies and Series Added to Netflix This Week
Scott Pilgrim Takes Off (Season 1) Netflix Original
Number of episodes: 8
Genre: Animation, Action, Adventure
Cast: Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Brie Larson, Chris Evans
Runtime: 29 mins
Animation on Netflix over the past couple of years has been at the next level. We’ve seen some incredible titles join the library; that trend continues today.
Scott Pilgrim Takes Off is a new anime series that remakes (and then remixes) the original Edgar Wright live-action movie, with most of the original cast returning to voice their respective characters.
Reviews have been stellar so far, with it debuting on RottenTomatoes with a perfect 100% score and audience scores being just behind.
The Crown (Season 6 – Part 1) Netflix Original
Number of episodes: 4
Genre: Biography, Drama, History
On our screens since 2016, The Crown has begun catching up to the modern day more aggressively with the sixth and final season of the biopic series that’s been recounting the life of Queen Elizabeth II.
Four episodes dropped this week primarily focusing on the final days of Princess Diana.
For some, the new season continues the downward trajectory of the past couple of seasons with many controversies and creatively questionable choices. Of course, more to come in December with the second and final batch of six episodes.
Lone Survivor (2013)
Genre: Action, Biography, Drama
Director: Peter Berg
Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch
Writer: Peter Berg, Marcus Luttrell, Patrick Robinson
Runtime: 121 min / 2h 1m
Finally, if you’re looking for an action flick to take you into the weekend, you could do far worse than Lone Survivor, a movie celebrating its 10th Birthday this year.
Mark Wahlberg stars in the movie that’s based on a true story following a team of U.S. Navy SEALs on a covert mission in Afghanistan, where they face an intense battle against Taliban forces, leading to a desperate fight for survival for the team’s lone survivor, Marcus Luttrell.
