The 9 Netflix Original Series to be Excited About in 2015
“After living in a cult for 15 years, Kimmy (Ellie Kemper, ‘The Office’) decides to reclaim her life and start over in New York City. Armed with just a backpack, light-up sneakers, and a couple of way-past-due library books, she’s ready to take on a world she didn’t even think existed anymore.
“Arrested Development,” but always wished it was darker. “Bloodline” comes from the creators of “Damages,” so the odds are in your favor if you were a fan of the Glenn Close and Ted Danson-drama.
Marvel movies. No, not the movie already made starring Ben Affleck, but the new series of Marvel pictures where they take impossibly terrible characters and turn them into edge-of-your-seat, spill-your-popcorn, buy-tickets-two-months-early superstars.
“F is for Family”
Foul-mouthed animated comedy with a knack for nostalgia. Think “South Park” meets “BoJack Horseman’s” Christmas special.
“Grace and Frankie”
stars Jane Fonda (Grace) and Lily Tomlin (Frankie) as a pair of frenemies whose lives are turned upside down — and permanently intertwined — when their husbands leave them for each other. From executive producers Marta Kaufmann (‘Friends’) and Howard Morris (‘Home Improvement’)
“House of Cards,” but only for its subtle, low-key moments about plausible politics. Oh, and you should probably like the French language, as “Marseille” is told entirely in the Parisian tongue.
“Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones”
a crime-fighting team made up of the four heroes already on Netflix — Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist — as well as some film stars, as well.
Think “Traffic” meets “Carlos,” with a lot of “Elite Squad” mixed in — the last thing being a two-part Brazilian film directed by Jose Padilha, who helms “Narcos,” and starring Wagner Moura, who stars in “Narcos.”
I’ll like it if I like… Worst case scenario: “Cloud Atlas.” Best case: “The Matrix.” Though with the above synopsis, we’re leaning toward the former.
