Welcome to this week's entry for New To Netflix! Not that we are actually new to Netflix, we are just happy, able, and willing to help you find out what kind of 'Twitch-y' material is coming to the big red virtual envelope in the streaming room from whatever country you may reside in that carries the service.

This week we go from Billy Wilder classics all the way up to white trash mock documentary television.  From Trekking amongst the stars, to selling the stars DNA for kicks.  And from older men embracing their homosexuality to the best movie ever made about the sport of Hockey.  Dig in.

New In The USA: TRAILER PARK BOYS - Seasons 1-7

If you have not had the pleasure of discovering the low-ambition adventures of Ricky, Julian and Bubbles in an East Coast Canadian Trailer Park, you've been missing out on one of the gems of Canuck TV in the past decade. They try to keep on the good side of their girlfriends, the angry drunk who runs the Sunnyvale Trailer Park, and hatch a myriad of pot-fueled schemes with the unique collection of denizens who make their homes in double-wide Northlanders.

TRAILER PARK BOYS is the definition of a brilliant comedy that just went on far too long.

Although permanently shirtless Randy will ALWAYS be funny, for some reason.

I cant get enough of The Trailer Park Boys, the new Movie is due soon, and season 8 wraps filming in a few weeks.

Whoa, I'm completely out of the loop. I thought the show was totally wrapped. Does that have anything to do with the fact that everything else they've tried to get off the ground has seemed to have problems?

Whatever happened to that movie where they were all going to be race car drivers or whatever?

The Boys bought the rights from the creator last month and announced the new season right after the 3rd movie wrapped. Their new site launched a few months ago and has some great BTS videos, The show was ahead of its time, and still has potential for a wider audience in the USA with help from Netflix.

So disappointed by Antiviral, which also just popped up in the US on streaming. It may have worked as a short, but both visually and plot-wise, it was stretched way too thin for a feature. And I've really enjoyed Caleb Landry Jones in the other two films I've seen him in, but I found him to be supremely irritating here. I feel like his direction must have been, "Just glower and mumble."

Errors of the Human Body was a much better Cronenberg film than Antiviral.
