Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is coming to Netflix ANZ. ABOUT TIME. Hi Netflix, it deserves better than to be dropped on New Year’s Eve. On the other hand, it’s a show about a woman who is trying to make a change in her life and is just weird enough to be great New Year’s Day viewing. Plus the songs are great, and I’m working on a piece about them just now. Sherlock is back on Monday too, so it will be the only thing the internet talks about for a few weeks. It’s still a good show, but I don’t like it as much as I used to. In short: I am very much a Sherlock hipster.
I decided to make this week’s streaming guide short, so the one thing I didn’t end up highlighting that I might have otherwise is the first season of The Shannara Chronicles which drops on Netflix January 5. I’ve definitely seen one episode, possibly two. They were a bit rough, and I lost track after that, but I’m interested to see how the first season ended. Netflix is also fast-tracking the second season of Shadowhunters, which starts January 3. The way time zones work means that these dates for Shadowhunters and Sherlock are a day later than in their original broadcast countries – I watch Game of Thrones on a Monday morning.
I’d never heard of Ivan Aristeguieta until earlier this year, when he was featured on the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Gala. The below bit about Bunnings sausage sizzles is hilarious, and spot on. I expect that Lost in Pronunciation will have similar insights into Australian culture, and I’m really looking forward to it.
