5 stars for Netflix Streaming

Netflix adds and removes hundreds of movies and shows from it's massive streaming library each month.

It can be difficult to keep up with what's worth watching and what you should pass on.

Let's face it, Netflix is a good value for entertainment but you also have to wade through a lot of garbage sometimes to find something truly worth watching.

This article will attempt to clear away some of the clutter to provide suggestions on movies and shows that you may find interesting.

Netflix keeps a tight reign on releasing information regarding what they will be adding to their library. This secrecy is likely to prevent their competition, Amazon Prime and Hulu from out bidding them for the licensing rights.

Netflix adds new material weekly to their library. This site will be updated accordingly as new material is added so check back often for the newest releases.

You May Have Missed

Happy Valley is one of the better shows that's been released on Netflix this year.

Happy Valley is a British crime procedural but is far and above anything currently offered in the United States.

Happy Valley follows a Police detective as she tries to solve a kidnapping while at the same time dealing with the emotional loss of her own daughter who was murdered. Further compounding the problem is that her daughter's murderer has recently been released from prison and moved back home.

The Wolf of Wall Street: Available 12/11/14

Necessary Roughness

Marco Polo Available 12/15/14

What Is Your Favorite Netflix Original?

Netflix Originals

Some of the best shows on Netflix are the one's they have produced themselves. Not only are these shows the best Netflix has to offer but they're some of the best shows anywhere.

Netflix's stable of shows include House of Cards, Orange is the New Black and Derek.

Netflix will also be releasing the drama, Marco Polo and if the trailer is any indication it should be another hit for the streaming giant.

Netflix continues it's model of dumping massive amounts of capital into developing their own high quality shows that have "must see" value. Netflix set out to overtake HBO as the producer of shows that everyone was talking about at the watercooler. While HBO is still he leader with their hit Game of Thrones, Netflix is quickly closing the gap and continues to add new and innovative shows to their line up.

It's arguable that having access to Netflix originals alone is worth the price of the $10 monthly subscription.

Season 3 of Lillyhammer is currently available to stream. Though Lillyhammer does not get the same buzz as House of Cards and Orange is the New Black, it's a well produced Netflix show. Lillyhammer is about a mafia hard case who gets put into the witness protection program. At his request he is moved to Lillyhammer where his brash Brooklyn demeanor clashes with the locals.

The Trip to Italy: Available 12/23/14

Amazon Prime

In addition to Netflix streaming, you should also consider a subscription to Amazon Prime who is also adding some very good original shows to their line up.

One such show is Alpha House starring John Goodman as a North Carolina Senator who shares a home with two other Senators while in Washington D.C. Oddly enough the show is loosely based on actual events as there is a group of Senators that share a home in D.C.

Alpha House recently released it's second season on Amazon Prime. John Goodman plays a blow hard Senator to perfection. Alpha House is the comedy version of Netflix's House of Cards.

If you don't have an amazon Prime subscription you can watch Alpha House for free by sighing up for their 30 day trial offer. Amazon Prime Trial Offer.
