Netflix Comings and Goings May 2017

As usual a ton of exciting projects are coming to Netflix in May. Much beloved shows like House of Cards and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt return with new seasons, as do plenty of new shows and movies. I was a little nervous to see that a film called Two Lovers and a Bear debuts on Netflix in May. I didn't know what it was and I was afraid to Google it. But once I plucked up my courage I was pleased to see it's not at all what I was thinking it might be. It's a Canadian indie film. Despite it being about two “burning souls”, a terrible description, I'm planning to give it a try. (BTW I watched Kevin Hart’s comedy special and absolutely loved it, especially the intro film with Halle Berry and Don Cheadle. It addresses some of the issues I have with spy type stories. It's a gem.)

Fans of Kristen Schaal will want to take a big bite out of the second season of Bob’s Burgers before it exits on the fifth. Graceland seasons one through three leave at the end of the month, as do seven seasons of Scrubs. And all the Jurassics, including Park, World and all the rest, go away on the first. Time for a dino binge?
