We’re approaching another weekend and for anyone out there who has somehow soaked up all the Netflix content available, there’s some good news — more is on the way.
This weekend, starting from 8 May, there will be 12 new titles coming to the streaming service but that’s basically where the good news ends. The content is pretty slim pickings with no major titles, apart from Dead To Me if that counts, on the way so you might find it tough feeling persuaded to start any of them.
The only potential highlight is a documentary featuring some very recognisable US comedians — Nick Offerman, Sarah Silverman and Adam Scott — as they tell stories about hallucinogenic trips in Have a Good Trip: Adventures in Psychedelics. Decide for yourself with the full list below.
Note: All program descriptions and synopses were provided by Netflix.
