Netflix Streaming

The Expanding Universe of Ashley Garcia (February 17th)

The Expanding Universe of Ashley Garcia is a family/teen sitcom about a 15-year-old prodigy who moves in with her uncle (who I think is the high school football coach) while she studies robotics. She also finally gets to have the life of a teenager while her uncle gets his feet wet as a parent.

I’m sure there will be plenty of teen awkwardness, which can be really endearing if it’s done well. I also expect at least some amount of teen angst, which is not really avoidable under these circumstances.

Available on U.S. and Canada Streaming, downloadable

Looking for more coming of age comedy? Try the delightful Ladybird, starring Oscar nominee Saoirse Ronan (streaming for free with your Amazon Prime Video subscription) or Love Simon (You can rent this one on Amazon Prime Video)

The Chef Show – Volume 3 (February 19)

This is a show that was born out of the movie Chef, starring Jon Favreau. He and Chef Roy Choi worked together on the film and collaborate again on this series that is a celebration of food and cooking and the people who are passionate about both. Each season features celebrity guests, this time including Wolfgang Puck and director Sam Raimi.

Available on U.S. and Canada Streaming, downloadable

Looking for more cooking with Jon Favreau? Mrs. Norman Maine reviewed Chef, the movie that inspired this entire series.

Netflix DVD Releases

Jojo Rabbit (February 19)

I’m really intrigued by this movie. I love director Taika Waititi, as he is responsible for my favorite of the Avengers movies – Thor Ragnarok. He also helmed the ridiculously charming Hunt for the Wilderpeople. I just really dig his aesthetic.

Jojo Rabbit is a “World War II satire”, which in different hands might make me cringe, but in this case I’m popping it right to the top of my queue. Its nomination for six Academy Awards (and win for Best Adapted Screenplay for Waititi) clinches its #2 spot (yes, I’m still waiting to get Parasite at #1).

Available via Netflix DVD February 19th

If you’re looking for more WWII movies, check out The Pianist (streaming on Netflix) or Atonement (streaming on Hulu).

Amazon Prime Video

Hunters – Season 1 (February 21)

I started seeing ads for this Amazon original series while watching something On Demand (so I couldn’t fast forward through commercials) and I’m really looking forward to it!

Good cast and an intriguing premise – a group in New York City in the late 1970s is hunting a group of Nazis trying to establish a Fourth Reich. I like a good period piece, and Amazon does a good job with production values on their original series.

Looking for more Amazon Prime Video original series? Try The Boys, or Good Omens.
