Fawlty Towers. The Office. Extras. Coraline. Watchmen. The frickin’ Prince Of Bel-Air. These are just some of the movies and TV shows that are exiting Netflix this month. The full list contains a whopping 131 titles. Watch ’em while you still can.
In previous months, Netflix has deleted a lot of third-party movies and only a few essential TV shows. This time, it’s gone for a reverse approach. (See below.) With that said, there are still some classic films leaving the service, including the wonderfully dark children’s movie Coraline, Spielberg’s Saving Private Ryan, Peter Weir’s The Truman Show and the high school-set crime drama Dope. All of these movies are set to disappear over the next few days – if you’ve never seen them make that your #1 priority.
Here’s the full list. We’ve included synopses for each movie and trailers for our personal recommendations.
Coraline (11 March)Curious young Coraline unlocks a door in her family’s home and is transported to a universe that strangely resembles her own — only better.

Bloody hell. Just look at the size of that list! There are some bona fide classics leaving Netflix Australia over the next few weeks, including British comedies Fawlty Towers, The Office and Extras. Will Smith sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is also getting axed (it has its fans, apparently.)
A bunch of crime documentaries and compelling dramas are also making their exit this month. Then there’s Horrible Histories, Pokémon, Doctor Who, Walking With Dinosaurs, Life Below Zero and both Planet Earth series – all destined for the chopping block. Sob.
Also, I just discovered that the entirety of Party of Five is on Netflix. (Well, uutil March 30. Then it’s gone.)

Terrifyingly, this might not even be a comprehensive list for March. In February Netflix quietly removed an additional 60 movies on the last day of the month. In other words, brace for more deletions as we limp into April.
