15 Facts About What's Streaming on Netflix In May
Ah, Netflix, our old love. The first streaming service that was there for us in our halcyon youth. Before the streaming wars, there was Survivor and Masters of Horror, and days spent waiting for DVDs that would never arrive. So this month, let’s pay respect to the reason for the console wars – all hail Netflix’s diminishing library. But not that diminishing! There’s a bunch of new stuff dropping on Netflix this month, from old classics we have had some trouble finding on other services (and no, we’re not paying for it like some old-money socialite) to some fancy new premieres -- so here’s a runthrough of some of the weirdest, most fun, and most unique stuff – along with some facts we bet you might not have known about them. And if you did, congrats, you get one silver star. Five silver stars gets one gold star. Eight gold stars get a two-second handshake. After 12 handshakes, you qualify for a platinum certification. Once certified platinum seven times, bam! you’re in first class. And after a few years in first class, you can trade that first class status for a hug! But not from us. We have a thing about hugging people. Your mom will probably hug you. Yeah, hug your mom.
