What’s New on Netflix in November?
It’s November, and everyone has turkey on the brain. (Seriously, how many more days until Thanksgiving? Anyone counting?)
But also the beginning of November means a slew of new Netflix shows. Need help deciding what your big binge-watching commitment will be for November? We’ve narrowed it down so you don’t have to.
Casper’s Top November Netflix Picks:
Master of None (The Binge-Worthy Series): Dating woes, New York City, Aziz Ansari: all the makings of a classic couch marathon. Aziz has written and directed Master of None, an original comedy “loosely based on his own life experiences.” Like Parks and Recreation and Broad City? Like Aziz in general? Add this one to your queue. It’s available November 6 — just in time for Thanksgiving weekend.
Twinsters (The Wait, What?): Twinsters is a documentary that follows Samantha Futerman as she unexpectedly reunites with Anais Bordier, the identical twin sister she never knew she had, 25 years after they were born on the same day in South Korea. It’s well-edited and witty as much as it is thought-provoking. This 2015 SXSW award-winner is a November must-watch.
W/ Bob and David (The Revival): Bob Odenkirk and David Cross are best known for their roles on two other Netflix favorites: Breaking Bad and Arrested Development. But between 1995 and 1998, they starred together on HBO’s Mr. Show With Bob And David, a surreal sketch show that’s become a cult classic. In a slew of Netflix revivals, Odenkirk and Cross have reemerged with W/ Bob and David.
Best of Enemies (The Must-See Documentary): In 1968, when they were dead-last in the television ratings, ABC hired two monumental public intellectuals to debate each other on air. William F. Buckley Jr. was a leading light of the new conservative movement, and Gore Vidal was a leftist novelist. On air, the two engaged in a battles rounds about policy and politics, as well as personal insult. It was unscripted and kept viewers
Dior and I (The Inspirational): Dior and I, a documentary by Frederic Tcheng, comes to Netflix at a particularly bittersweet time, as Raf Simons announces his sudden departure as Creative Director of Womenswear from Dior. The film follows the young Belgian designer as he creates his first collection for Dior. Oh, and he has merely eight weeks to do so. Dior and I is not only a beautiful look into one of the most storied ateliers in fashion, but also a timely tribute to one of its most visionary designers.
And most importantly, our Netflix Nosh of the Month: chocolate-covered cranberries, turkey sandwich, kettle corn, and of course, candy corn.
