Top November picks for Netflix

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

Available: November 16

The Coen Brothers are back with The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, an anthology of six short films that take place in the Old West. Although this is their first ever project made for a streaming platform, you’ll be relieved to know that the series maintains the auteurs’ signature blend of dark drama and even darker humor. November 16th – get it in the datebook, folks!

The Other Side of the Wind

Available: NOW

50 years in the making (seriously), the late, great Orson Welles’s unfinished masterpiece finally hit the streaming giant on November 2. If you haven’t already, set aside some time to watch the great auteur’s Hollywood satire in all its cinematic glory. Trust Welles to be garnering five stars even from beyond the grave.

House of Cards: S6

Available: NOW

With a minor delay due to the swift exit of a certain someone, House of Cards is back with its sixth and final season. In place of her husband Frank Underwood (previously portrayed by Kevin Spacey), the former First Lady, Claire, is in the driver’s seat as the President of the United States.

Salvaging what’s left of Netflix’s once wildly popular political drama, Claire Underwood maintains a heroic performance throughout the eight episode season – it’s worth tuning in for her efforts alone.

John Leguizamo’s Latin History for Morons

Available: November 5

John Leguizamo’s latest one-man show couldn’t have come at a better time. Blending humor with heartbreak, the actor attempts to trace 3000 years of Latin history, a journey that conjures up comical yet heavy statements about oppression in the Americas while highlighting the Latin figures who have been largely excluded from historical accounts. It’ll make you chuckle and seethe all at once.

Narcos: Mexico

Available: November 16

Because what we need in this world is even more content on Mexican drug lords, Netflix is releasing Narcos: Mexico. A sort of prequel / companion to the Narcos series, the show chronicles the establishment of the first Mexican drug cartel, as well as the fledgeling DEA ostensibly tasked with keeping tabs on it.

Outlaw King

Available: November 9

Director David Mackenzie’s back to put Braveheart in the shade with this historical action-drama that digs into the true story of Robert the Bruce and the Wars of Scottish Independence. Featuring scenes of horses being cut in half, soldiers drowning in bogs, and dogs feasting upon rotting corpses, Outlaw King is sure to quench that intensive bloodthirst of yours. If you’re feeling squeamish, you might want to have the Xanax ready for this one.

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power

Available: November 16

Relive your childhood with this She-Ra reboot. There are some returning faves – including Glimmer, Bow, and Catra – and some changes in She-Ra we’re more than happy to embrace. While she shares similarities to her 80s predecessor, her physique is now broader, stronger, and even more badass than before.

For the honor of Grayskull, She-Ra has the power!

Frontier: S3

Available: November 23

Season three of historical drama Frontier will see Jason Momoa return as Declan Harp, a part-Irish, part-Native American outlaw campaigning to breach the Canadian fur trade. Per Netflix’s description, the third installment will be told from multiple perspectives, taking place in a world where business negotiations might be resolved with close-quarter hatchet fights, and where delicate relations between Native tribes and Europeans can spark bloody conflicts.

In other words, expect more blood, brutality, and brawls. It’s what you tune in for, right?

F is for Family: S3

Available: November 30

The most dysfunctional animated family is back for a third run. Although it’s easy to overlook this Netflix cartoon among such other hits as BoJack Horseman and Big Mouth, F is For Family is a sardonic treat and will make you feel better about your own family problems.

Top November picks for Hulu

Dietland

Available: NOW

If you missed it the first time around, be sure to check out this daring comedy adapted from Sarai Walker’s hit novel of the same name. The show follows a young woman (Joy Nash) wrestling with weight loss, feminism, and her job as a ghostwriter for a beauty magazine, all while becoming involved with an extremist group taking out men accused of sexual violence. A true dramedy for the #MeToo era.

Baskets: S3

Available: November 23

Do we need to spell it out for you again? FX’s Baskets is by far the most understated comedy on TV, and if you haven’t watched the whole thing already, we urge you to do so right now. Season three is hitting Hulu later this month, meaning you’ve got a good couple of weeks to bingewatch the first two beforehand.

Trust us, it’s worth watching for the wonders of Louie Anderson as Christine Baskets alone.

Into the Dark: Flesh & Blood

Available: NOW

Into the Dark is the smart-as-hell horror anthology series with each episode inspired by a holiday. The second entry, Flesh & Blood, is a Thanksgiving-themed story that focuses on a teenage girl who hasn’t left the house since her mother’s unsolved murder. Playing on thriller tropes, it’s a little on the nose but still worth a watch, particularly if you’re looking for some anti-festive viewing.

The Bisexual

Available: November 16

The premiere season of this Channel 4 / Hulu Original is the brainchild of Desiree Akhavan – you know, the genius behind The Miseducation of Cameron Post. This time, she’s turning her attention to the small screen with a dramedy that focuses on the differences between dating men and women from the perspective of a person who finds herself doing both.

Top November picks for Amazon Prime

Homecoming

Available: NOW

If you haven’t already, you should definitely give Homecoming some time. From the mind of Sam Esmail a.k.a. the talent behind Mr. Robot, this podcast-to-TV thriller stars Julia Roberts as Heidi, a woman who starts afresh after working at a facility helping soldiers to transition to civilian life. However, when she’s questioned about why she left the job, an entirely new story begins to unfold.

An old-fashioned mystery with smart modern spins, this is one Homecoming party you don’t want to miss.

Beat

Available: November 9

Season one of this Amazon Originals series will take you back to your clubbing days, centering on Robert Schlag, a 28-year-old Berlin club promoter who is addicted to the sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle of the city’s nightlife. However, the illusion is smashed when he’s recruited by the European Secret Services as an undercover insider.

Patriot: S2

Available: November 9

Not long to wait until S2 of the Amazon Originals series Patriot, the political dramedy starring Michael Dorman as John Tavner, an intelligence officer who is on assignment to stop Iran from going nuclear. In season two, too many people know too much – John’s got more allies, but he’s also gained more opponents, and his efforts to navigate these forces come with a heavy cost.

Coldplay: A Head Full of Dreams

Available: November 16

Yes, their music is wack and only really belongs on Dad Rock compilations, but that doesn’t mean Coldplay: A Head Full of Dreams isn’t going to make for an interesting watch. Rather than the usual drug-fuelled antics of the rock ‘n’ roll bands of yesteryear, this documentary will chronicle the rise of a band in a modern era and how they went from music geeks to one of the most famous mega-groups on the planet.
