New on Netflix in November: 'House of Cards,' 'Narcos,' and plenty of Christmas films
Is November too early for Christmas movies? Netflix sure doesn't think so.
As soon as you're done watching a bunch of scary shows for Halloween, Netflix offers plenty of festive fare about love, family and Santa Claus. For example: heartwarming "Angela's Christmas," the awesomely bad "A Christmas Prince" sequel, enchanted advent calendar movie "Holiday Calendar" and Kurt Rusell-as-Santa film "The Christmas Chronicles."
Aside from holiday stories, here are a few more Netflix highlights: the final season of "House of Cards" (without Kevin Spacey); a new batch of "Narcos," set in Mexico; Coen Brothers Western "The Ballad of Buster Scruggs;" adult drag-queen-heroes cartoon "Super Drags;" and fresh Michael Douglas comedy "The Kominsky Method," from creator Chuck Lorre.
A full list of shows and movies headed to Netflix next month, with descriptions of the streaming service's original content. (And here's Netflix's October list.)
