New to Netflix in May

Netflix

Every month, Netflix adds new homework distractions and takes away old ones.

Mayor Will Joyce announced Monday the City of Stillwater would begin the process of reopening Friday, but for those who aren’t quite ready to leave their houses yet, Netflix has you covered.

Netflix has a great list of movies and TV shows heading to its catalog in May, and if you’re not quite sure where to start your binge watching session, I have some suggestions for you. Here’s what I’m most excited to watch this month.

Avatar: The Last Airbender

I don’t care what anybody says, this is the real “Avatar.” The animation is beautiful, the characters are relatable, and the storyline is compelling. It’s enjoyable to watch no matter what age you are, and I get something different out of it each time I watch an episode. This is arguably one of the best animated shows of all time. Plus, who doesn’t love season 3 Zuko?

Sinister

I’m a huge horror fan, and this is truly one of the best horror movies I’ve ever seen. I remember watching it at my cousin’s house in middle school with my sister, and all three of us decided to cram onto my cousin’s little bed that night because we were scared. I’m excited to watch it again after all these years, and Sinister II is on Netflix, too, so I’m going to make it a double feature.

Dead to Me: Season 2

A lot of people think Netflix Originals are hit or miss, and for me, this one’s a hit. I binged season 1 in two days. It does a good job of showing realistic grief, so you can actually feel for the characters, but there are also plenty of lighthearted moments that make you laugh. If you’re looking for something different to watch, I definitely recommend this.

Underworld (1, 2 and 3)

I really enjoy these movies; they were actually the first rated R movies I ever saw. They’re great for fantasy and action movie lovers, like myself. The overarching plot is good, and each movie is also to keep you hooked. Plus, since all three of them are coming to Netflix at the same time, you can have a nice little binge session.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Kimmy vs. the Reverend

If you haven’t seen the “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” you need to. It’s completely ridiculous, absolutely hilarious and just overall amazing. This is an interactive episode, too, so I’m sure it’ll be even better than usual.

Here’s a full list of what’s coming to Netflix in May.
