As January commences after a seriously intense party season, and sequin frocks along with those even sparklier heels are put to rest (for now), it’s only natural that the sofa ‘be a calling.’ And the good people at Netflix are making sure you spend ample time there with an impressive lineup of new programs hitting the site this January.
What’s cooking you ask? Well, to start with, there are quite a few new originals to start binging on; Dracula, Spinning Out, Next In Fashion, The Stranger, The Ghost Bride and Ragnarok. But if you’re looking for an old time favourite, don’t worry — you’ll be getting them in bucketloads; from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Inception and American Beauty to Chasing Amy, Catch Me If You Can and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
