1. ‘Over the Moon’
Over the Moon is an animated musical. It tells the story of a young girl who embarks on a brave journey into space. The official Netflix description is as follows: “Fueled with determination and a passion for science, a bright young girl builds a rocket ship to the moon to prove the existence of a legendary Moon Goddess. There she ends up on an unexpected quest, and discovers a whimsical land of fantastical creatures.”
2. ‘The Queen’s Gambit’
Netflix’s new limited series The Queen’s Gambit tells the story of chess prodigy Beth Harmon (Anya Taylor-Joy.) She battles trauma, grief, self-doubt, and most importantly, addiction on her way to the top. Beth is abandoned by both the living and the dead. The only constant she can lean on is the cold mathematical order. This she finds within the black and white world of a chess board.
3. ‘Unsolved Mysteries’
The Unsolved Mysteries reboot first premiered on Netflix this summer. But Part Two of the first season just dropped on the streaming platform this fall. In the second batch of true crime stories, you can expect to hear about mysterious spirits, missing individuals, and perplexing deaths.
The show really won’t remind anyone of the Unsolved Mysteries they watched when they were kids. The mysteries this new version discusses are fascinating. The episodes are well-researched and the story is well told. We just wish they named it something else.
4. ‘My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman’
My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman. The former late-night host`s Netflix series. Bringing famous faces like Kim Kardashian, Robert Downey Jr., and Lizzo to chat with Letterman for this collection of interviews.
“Wise enough to realize he can’t change the past, Letterman is attempting to change the present with My Guest Needs No Introduction,” writes Decider’s Stephen Thomas Erlewine. “His greatest tool in combating the rise of ignorance is using the form he mastered, so he’s made a talk show that defies all modern conventions. At its core, it feels like a throwback to the unhurried cadences of The Late Late Show With Tom Snyder–the program that followed Dave’s Late Show in the ’90s–but this format has been adapted so it doesn’t feel stuffy: it’s loose, occasionally profane, and its host is keenly aware that his program is unlike anything else on the air.”
Based on a true story, the Netflix original series Barbarians is set in the year 9 A.D. and follows a group of Germanic tribes lead by three best friends that confront the Roman empire in a moment that will change European history: the battle in the Teutoburg Forest.
6. ‘The Haunting of Bly Manor’
The Haunting of Bly Manor has just arrived on Netflix in time for Halloween. This brand new ghost story from the creators of The Haunting of Hill House centers on an American nanny who is hired to take care of a man’s niece and nephew after their au pair suddenly dies. But maybe there is a reason for the deceased’s sudden demise, as the ghost- and secret-filled halls of Bly Manor threaten the nanny as she tries to protect her charges from the seditious forces that be. Starring Victoria Pedretti, Henry Thomas, Oliver Jackson-Cohen and more, The Haunting of Bly Manor is not only one of the 10 best new shows to watch on Netflix, it is also one top shows to watch this month in general. So start binge-watching!
Lily James and Armie Hammer star in Netflix’s new Rebecca film, the latest remake of Daphne du Maurier’s classic novel. Decider’s John Serba calls the movie a “ineffective, histrionic melodrama that probably isn’t supposed to be funny, but kind of is anyway.”
“One scene is scored by sledgehammers on harpsichords, the best way to punctuate the ratcheting-up of suspense as the film stomps on the gas and guns it through a collection of plot points on the way to a hasty and dissatisfying conclusion. This isn’t much of an updated Rebecca; for too much of the film, Our Protagonist is a passive mouse ground up in the wheels of class warfare, and if you believe her impassioned change of character in the final act is feminist, well, you haven’t seen the last several Disney princess cartoons. (No, that isn’t a joke, so don’t you dare take it that way.)”
