Netflix Streaming Additions: October 2014

Posted September 29, 2014 by ian nichols in Movies

Another month, another slew of Netflix additions to their streaming service (but not without a sizable chunk of options on the way out). Besides The Gilmore Girls, which has been stealing all the press (understandable to those with certain sensibilities), we’re going to see anything from cult faves (Team America: World Police) to contemporary super hero TV shows (Arrow‘s 2nd season). Some of my personal favorites (the underrated Galaxy Quest, and Oscar Best Picture winner Kramer vs. Kramer) come on the first day of the month. Later we’ll see Supernatural‘s 9th season added, as well as The Hunger Games: Catching Fire on the 22nd, and Tarantino’s latest, Django Unchained on the 25th. Here are some the notable films and TV shows to binge on in this, the 10th month of the year:
