New This Week on Netflix (29th of October)


This week has been an exciting week in the world of Netflix, the number one internet movie and TV streaming service. A new trailer has emerged for the epic TV Series Marco Polo, which is exclusively airing on Netflix in December 2014. Always looking to develop its service and offer more to its paying customers, this is another major coup for Netflix, which has been criticised in the past for having a seriously dated back catalogue.

Marco Polo, set in the 13th century, follows Marco during his early years in the court of Kublai Khan, and promises intrigue, deception and bloodshed. The trailer for the series can be seen below, but just in case you can’t get it to work, type ‘Game of Thrones’ into Google, it’s pretty much the same.


The Netflix team have clearly been distracted by this exciting new series, as they’ve forgotten to add anything decent to this weeks list of new additions. There’s only a few titles to choose from, so we suggest that you spend your evenings this week trick or treating, instead of endlessly scrolling through the contents of Netflix as usual, getting fed up, and then just watching funny videos of chubby people falling over on YouTube.
