I have no idea if this specific Just Added section is new for Netflix, but I certainly haven’t seen it before today. Nevertheless in an effort to keep you bingeing the streaming giant has a section that includes everything they’ve added to their massive collection in the last seven days.
This is especially helpful for us streaming-junkies, during those times when we feel like we’ve run out of things to watch. It’s the internet version of staring at an overflowing closet and proclaiming with such sincerity, “I have nothing to wear.”
Here are a couple of my favs that have been added to Netflix in the last 7 days!
“Six years into law school, Cristela is on the brink of landing her first big internship at a prestigious firm. The only thing standing between her and success seems to be her traditional Mexican-American family, who find her lofty career aspirations more ambitious than they think appropriate. As she finds herself with one foot in the old culture that she’s working to bring into the present at home and the other in the modern world that she wants to embrace in her professional career, Cristela finds the path to the American dream may not be simple, but it is full of laughter.”
The ABC series was created by stand-up comedian Cristela Alonzo, who also starred in, wrote for the series, and served as an executive producer, making her the first Latina to create, produce, write, and star in her own primetime comedy.
I found the show downright hilarious, alonge with Cristela herself. It wasn’t the freshest take on a family sitcom, but to be fair it only had one short season to flex. The show clearly favored the laugh-it-out over talk-it-out method when it comes to dealing with tough issues like race and class and was canceled after only one season, which is a huge bummer because the show had a ton of potential. On the bright side it did introduce a much larger audience to Cristela and her comedy, which is now touring the nation. Go Cristela!
“Dev (Shah Rukh Khan) and Maya (Rani Mukherjee) are married, but not to each other. A chance encounter brings Dev and Maya together, and they feel a strange attraction that soon develops into a close friendship. As they spend more time together, they begin to re-examine their marriages and face up to the dissatisfaction that lurks just beneath the surface.”
I found Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna during my Rani Mukherjee binge. It was super slow in some parts but I’m glad I stuck with it. You got to have stamina messing with these Bollywood flicks!
Check out a bit of both and let me know what you think ehh?
