Netflix Comings and Goings April 2017

The most interesting looking project award goes to El Faro de Las Orcas, which my amazingly terrible Spanish translates as The LIghthouse of the Killer Whales. The trailer tells me it’s about a beautiful horse, a beautiful orca, a beautiful man, a beautiful woman, a beautiful boy, and a beautiful lighthouse. I think at one point an orca blows through a window, into the lighthouse, during a terrible storm. (There is a 99.99% possibility that I am incorrect about this.) Anyway, this Netflix Original looks intriguing so I sure hope my TV will be able to give me English subtitles.

We can continue our 80s binging in April as Netflix brings us such childhood classics as An American Tail (and the two sequels) and such horror classics as A Nightmare On Elm Street. We'll be able to watch Gremlins, but probably shouldn’t after midnight, as well as new fare such as Kubu and the Two Strings (which I really enjoyed) and the return of Mystery Science Theater 3000. Louis CK has a new special and The Great British Baking Show: Masterclass: Seasons one through three debut.

Whedon fans will want to rewatch Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly and Dollhouse before they go away at the beginning of the month. Others to catch before it’s too late include Better Off Ted and four seasons of Bones. You will probably also want to rewatch Ferris Bueller's Day Off, if only so that you can compare the original to the new Domino ads starring Steve from Stranger Things.
