With spring just around the corner, TV addicts still have plenty of indoor time left to catch up on scheduled programming. March offers a variety of exciting content, and when you’re not taking in sports media (but really, who likes sports?), flip on over to your trusty Netflix app. If March tells us, “Beware the Ides of March,” does that mean we’re at war with…our TV consumption? No? I may be reaching a bit on that one. Worth it. Stop judging us March! Here’s what we’re anticipating for the upcoming month.

So…you’re really not gonna watch Netflix with me? Tsk.

NEW ARRIVALS

‘Queer Eye’ returns with a much-anticipated third season March 15

Queer Eye is easily one of my favorite shows of 2018. The first season was perfect, and the second season was amazing as well. I’ve been eagerly awaiting season three, getting only short spurts of my Fab Five addiction assuaged through their Instagrams and social media presence. Fear not, as Karamo, Jonathan, Bobby, Antoni, and Tan will be returning for another feel-good romp extravaganza on March 15. Pairs perfectly with a red wine and a bowl of popcorn.

‘Love, Death and Robots’ screeches to life March 15

…yeah. Watch the trailer. This looks absolutely bonkers. It’s like getting the most pleasant version of the Ludovico technique before our dry eyes. I’m getting ‘Animatrix’ vibes, with a pinch of Cronenberg, topped off with a heaping dose of sci-fi a la Dune. Each episode comprises several short stories and vignettes that fall under horror, adventure, and fantasy. Should be a little something here for everybody. Enjoy this series when it airs on March 15!

‘Doubt’ arrives March 7

Doubt hit its ten-year mark and it’s still a striking cinematic experience. All the main actors in the movie were nominated for Oscars, and the story is one for the ages: a nun (Meryl Streep) at a Catholic school is convinced the head priest (Philip Seymour Hoffman) is sexually abusing a young student. Viola Davis turns in a stellar acting performance as the young student’s mother. Amy Adams provides the necessary foil as the trustworthy and cautious Sister James. Doubt is a tour de force experience that must not be missed. Watch it March 7.

‘Wet Hot American Summer’ splashes to Netflix March 1

Wet Hot is a modern comedy classic. The jokes are layered, frequent and rewarding to subsequent viewings. The flick helped to launch the careers of many comedy and film titans alike, such as Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd and Michael Ian Black and a dozen more familiar faces. Loaded with plenty of cameos and surprises, Wet Hot American Summer is a raunchy, confident and stoic sigil to the comedy gods.

LAST CHANCE:  WATCH ‘EM FAST!

‘Bruce Almighty’ leaves Netflix on March 1

Morgan Freeman plays God, and then somehow, Jim Carrey gains God’s powers. Bruce is a delightful movie, a romantic comedy with some magical realism. Jim Carrey plays Bruce, a down on his luck TV anchor who prays to God to make him better at his job. His wishes are granted, but Bruce finds that even the powers of God can’t save him from himself. Along with a wonderful Jennifer Aniston, Carrey’s Bruce uncovers the powers of love and self-discovery. Watch this funny take on spiritualism by March 1 because no prayers will bring it back.

‘Beauty and the Beast’ roars away from Netflix March 18

Disney’s been on a rebooting kick recently, updating all the animated classics into live action romps. Beauty and the Beast stars a remarkable Emma Watson and Dan Stevens as Belle and the Beast, respectively. The remake is fresh and revivifies the classic tunes of old. The visuals are fascinating and breathtaking. It’s Disney, so you know what to expect by now. Don’t miss this one, catch it before March 8.

BEWARE THE IDES OF NETFLIX!

Okay, okay. I’m all done with my cheesy jokes. Thanks for tuning in for your monthly Netflix updates. We’ll be back next month before you know it! Time isn’t moving more quickly! We’re not freaking out! Spring, get here faster!  Ah!

Be well, and enjoy your month.  Keep on keeping on.
