A diverse array of new watchables was added to video on demand this week. For starters, Netflix brought on the third season of “that girl” (that New Girl) in sync with the Season 4 premiere of the series on FOX. Also on Netflix is the 2013 documentary Evergreen, about the legalization of marijuana in Washington. Indiewire called it a momentary “victory lap” here.
For a somewhat less controversial movie experience, you can now see Silver Linings Playbook on Netflix and read the CT Her.meneutics opinion here. In the same vein of lighthearted love stories, stay tuned for the Netflix-produced series, Love. Two seasons are set to stream in 2016, but the Huffington Post gives the full story here and now. For the girls who like to be crossed in love now and again, or any other Jane Austin fans, the 1990’s TV miniseries version of Pride and Prejudice is available on Amazon Prime.
If you like to curl up with your kids and a good VeggieTales story, then Hulu is the streaming site for you. Recently added to the long list of Hulu’s veggie tales is Robin Good and His Not-So-Merry Men—“a lesson in handling hurt.”
The second best reviewed movie on Indiewire’s Criticwire site, Ida, is now on video on demand. The indie drama follows the story of an orphan whose parents were killed in the Holocaust. Indiewire’s review says the film tackles religion and anti-Semitism head on; Alissa Wilkinson also reviewed it for CT, noting the film’s exploration of incarnation. I suggest saving this emotional experience for after VeggieTales (when the kids are asleep) and before a binge-catch-up with Jess.1
