Best new things you should watch on Netflix this month

Lots of very good reasons to stay on your sofa


Halloween is officially over (though we're still finding bite-size bags of M&Ms stuffed in odd places), and although this means that summer is now a distant memory, it also means we can now roll into the festive season largely uninterrupted.

Prepare for cosy evenings in wearing cashmere, drinking mulled wine and eating Terry's Chocolate Oranges. We are carrying one thing through the seasons: Netflix.

Having down time is important whatever the season and the streaming site have got some brilliant watches in November - including a new series of Queer Eye - this season the gang take on Japan - and Vanessa Hudgens in another cringe-worthy, but oh-so-watchable Christmas movie.

Whether you're looking for insight into the Sufragette movement, a foray into the films that shaped the '80s or a movie you can sing-along to from start to finish, the trusty streaming service has you covered.

So draw the curtains, grab a large glass of red and enjoy November from your sofa. Netflix season has officially arrived!


We don't know about summer lovin' but were certainly lovin' this film this winter, thanks to Netflix now offering it for our viewing pleasure. Follow Sandy and Danny from their holiday romance, through the tribulations of American high school, and out the other side. Turn the volume up, get the snacks out and prepare to sing at the top of your voice and dance on the sofa.

The Knight Before Christmas

It's officially okay to start watching and festive films, and Netflix are the best at this.

The latest offering is all about a medieval knight transported to the present day, where he falls for a high school science teacher who's disillusioned by love.
