Published Nov 26, 2015The differences between Canadians and Americans go much deeper than their lack of ketchup chips and bizarre decision to celebrate Thanksgiving mere weeks before Christmas — we've also got alternate versions of Netflix to contend with. For those looking to stream on our home and native land, we've pieced together a handy guide to what's hitting Netflix Canada this December.
There's a mixed bag of Netflix originals hitting the service this month, including Bill Murray's anticipated Christmas special A Very Murray Christmas (which arrives on December 4), a new Trailer Park Boys special called Drunk, High and Unemployed: Live in Austin (December 9) and F Is for Family, a new animated series from comedian Bill Burr (December 18). They've also got comedy specials from Brent Morin and Mike Epps arriving on December 1 and 18 respectively.
Netflix is getting into the true crime game with Making a Murderer, a new series not unlike Serial or The Jinx. That one lands on December 18.
The streaming company is also inexplicably buddying up with Adam Sandler's Happy Madison production company this month. They'll release the plagued, probably racist comedy The Ridiculous 6 on December 11, as well as Real Rob — Rob Schneider's version of a Curb Your Enthusiasm show — on December 1.
As for the non-exclusive content, there's plenty of British comedy hitting Netflix this month. The first season of Detectorists (featuring Mackenzie Crook a.k.a. Gareth Keenan from The Office) will land on December 1. If you'd prefer some Scottish sketch comedy, Limmy's Show lands on December 15. Then there's the second season of W1A, a dry comedy about life at the BBC, which arrives on December 12.
There are also a handful of notable movies joining the service, including Where the Wild Things Are (December 1), Sherlock Holmes (December 1), Kick-Ass 2 (December 1), Darkness on the Edge of Town (December 9), 2 Days in New York (December 13), Avengers: Age of Ultron (December 16) and Her (December 29).
There are also a handful of flicks leaving the service. You've got until December 1 to stream Brokeback Mountain, Elf, Pan's Labyrinth, Pitch Perfect, Scrooged, The Great Gatsby, The Hangover and the original Wet Hot American Summer.
