    The Netflix May Titles Have Dropped And Thank God Because This Self-Iso Thing Is Hard

    Maybe I'll finally be inspired to watch something new for once.

    With self-isolation measures still in place and many of us continuing to work from home, it's no surprise that the months of the year have slowly merged together to create one long, never-ending week.

    I have seriously lost any concept of time. Like, what day is it?

    But surprise, surprise — it's nearly May and that means another much-needed delivery of TV shows, movies and docos from Netflix Australia.

    Thank the lord, I really need this.

    Now, brace yourself because a bunch of your fave series will be returning. I'm talking about Rick & Morty (weekly episodes from May 6), Dead To Me (May 8) and — gulp — the final season of Schitt's Creek (May 14).

    Adult Swim, Netflix, CBC

    All three of these shows are pure perfection, but if you haven't yet managed to watch a single ep of Dead To Me or Schitt's Creek, well, you absolutely need to. As someone who doesn't usually go for comedy, I devoured both of these shows like a 10 pack of nuggets at Macca's. The dialogue is fantastic, the casting is out of this world and the storylines are sure to make you snap out of your quarantine slump.

    Or if you fancy tuning into something new, check out Hollywood (May 1), Hannah Gadsby: Douglas (May 26) and Snowpiercer (coming soon in May).


    Hollywood is the latest series from Ryan Murphy (aka the brains behind Nip/Tuck, Glee and American Horror Story). It follows a group of aspiring actors and filmmakers trying to "make it" in Tinseltown during post-WWII — no matter the cost. And based on Murphy's other shows, it sounds deliciously dirty.

    Next up, Hannah Gadsby: Douglas. No doubt you've heard of this Aussie comedian's first comedy special — Nanette — and this one sounds just as good. Plus, it's named after her eldest dog!

    And lastly, if you're need of a dystopian thriller, Snowpiercer will fit the bill. Based on Bong Joon-ho's film of the same name, the TV series takes place seven years after the world has turned into a frozen wasteland. It follows the passengers onboard a gigantic train that circles the globe and carries the last remnants of humanity.

    In the mood for a longer watch that you can get stuck into? There's a lot of new movies to pick from, but The Half Of It (May 1), 18 Regali (May 8) and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Kimmy Vs. The Reverend (May 12) sound like the perfect way to spend a Friday night.


    The Half Of It sounds like a refreshing twist on the usual teen rom-com. It follows a shy student, Ellie, who helps another student woo his crush. But things change when she begins to fall for the same girl.

    Meanwhile, 18 Regali is an Italian drama that sounds like it's going to have me sobbing on my couch. It's about a pregnant mother with terminal cancer who leaves behind 18 gifts for her daughter to receive on her birthday until she reaches adulthood.

    Last, but not least, is an interactive adventure for fans of the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. And if it's anything like Bandersnatch, it's sure to provide some much-needed self-iso entertainment.

    And if you're feeling like taking a walk down memory lane and rewatching an old fave, Netflix have got you covered. Flicks like The Edge of Seventeen (May 1), Mission: Impossible – Fallout (May 7) and The Butterfly Effect (May 15) will all be available.

    STX Entertainment, Paramount Pictures, New Line Cinema

    I've heard so much about the Mission: Impossible series and how good it is, so I guess it's time to finally watch one of the movies.

    As well as one of the most iconic Aussie films to date — Tomorrow, When The War Began, which is based on John Marsden's book series.

    Paramount Pictures

    Holy moly, isn't this a throwback?! I remember reading these books in high school and then seeing the movie at Event Cinemas with my mates during cheap Tuesday.

    Anyway, that's it for this month. Remember to stay safe and take care of yourselves, friends.
