What’s trending on Netflix now? 10 Best Movies & Shows to Start your Year

We may have just rung in the new year, but it looks like not much is changing anytime soon.  It’s time we settle in for another cozy month of Netflix, isn’t it?

Fortunately, Netflix has delivered plenty of newly-added movies and shows for us to enjoy in early 2021, ensuring there’s something for nearly everyone.  If you’re not sure where to start, here are our picks of the best movies and shows to watch on Netflix this January.

1.Bridgerton

The new Netflix original regency drama Bridgerton presents the bygone era of 19th century Britain in a novel style. In Bridgerton, we have a queen of color, a handsome dark-skinned duke, and a skilled black boxer. This is a far cry from reality and from how things were for the colored at that time. But the Chris Van Dusen-created drama is not about sticking to the facts. It attempts to create this more egalitarian society in a parallel world of fiction. And it does a stand-up job.

2.We can be Heroes

When alien invaders kidnap Earth’s superheroes, their kids are whisked away to a government safe house. But whip-smart tween Missy Moreno will stop at nothing to rescue her superhero dad, Marcus Moreno. Missy teams up with the rest of the super kids to escape their mysterious government babysitter, Ms. Granada. If they’re going to save their parents, they’ll have to work together by using their powers – from elasticity to time control to predicting the future – and form an out-of-this-world team.

3.Cobra Kai

Kiernan Shipka (“Mad Men”) leads the cast in the titular role of the show that is based on a comic series of the same name.
