Raise your hand if you love streaming shows! Oh, wait. You can’t because you’re busy clicking “Continue watching” on Netflix. I feel you, boo. So just because I like you, I’m gonna tell you exactly what’s coming to your favourite streaming services this month. Here’s the breakdown of Stan and Netflix Australia in January 2017.
New to Netflix
(**** = Netflix Original or brand-new content)
There’s an incredible amount of new content coming to Netflix Australia this month, but the series that most people seem to be hanging out for is Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events.
The 2004 movie was basically a 108-minute smash cut of the first three books and it was more than a little disappointing, even with the comedic stylings of Jim Carrey. Here’s hoping the TV series will delve into the darker aspects of the series with a new cast headed up by Neil Patrick Harris.
