November, or as I prefer to call it: “The Calm Before the Swarm.” Sure, the holiday tunes have only just started playing and the tacky decorations are slowly snaking their way into view, but you’re still a comfortable distance from awkward staff parties, familial obligations and credit card debt. Celebrate this important time!
You can buy that sun lamp, stock up on vitamin D and ready yourself for the Night King and his winter horde, or maybe you can get in those last peaceful workouts before all of the resolution-ers stink up the gym with their toxic masculinity. You could take a few naps at work—under your desk, or in the maintenance closet (I won’t tell) or get your flu shot and bring it up in every single conversation between now and the end of the month. You’re healthy and it’s November! Treat yo’self.
But, seriously, as the skies turn grey and the nights grow long, what better way to pass the time than to throw on the flannels and binge-watch? I know that’s why you’re really here. You want to know what’s hot and easily accessible, which was once me in my twenties, but is now the fantastic content coming to Netflix Canada in November. Behold!

HOT PICK: Queer Eye: We’re in Japan! Limited Series
Netflix’s generally excellent Queer Eye reboot continues to impress, with our favourite queeroes heading to Japan to spread their love, light, and fashion tips to folks on the other side of the globe. My default mode is cynicism, and even I find the show’s mix of self-improvement and social issues well-executed, with just the right amount of good ol’ fashioned cry porn thrown in. Check it out, grab the tissues.
Spitfire: The Plane that Saved the World
HOT PICK: The King
Shakespeare is sexy again! History’s first showrunner gets his “Henry” plays adapted into this historical drama starring Timothée Chalamet, Joel Edgerton, Lily-Rose Depp and future Batman Robert Pattison. Advance reviews have been overwhelmingly positive, particularly the performances by Chalamet and Pattison, but this is also an excellent opportunity to watch something just to feel fancy and smarter than your friends.

GO! The Unforgettable Party
HOT PICK: Klaus
I know I was just making fun of the holidays, but Netflix has a deluge of festive content this month, and I’m not a total grinch. This film—Netflix’s first original animated feature—is about “a postman stationed in a town to the North who befriends a reclusive toy-maker.” I wonder who that could be, huh? Deffo not Santa. The voice cast includes Jason Schwartzman, Rashida Jones, J.K. Simmons and Joan Cusack. Fun!
Llama Llama, Season 2
The Stranded, Season 1
The Toys That Made Us, Season 3
What’s new on Netflix Canada November 17
HOT PICK: The Crown, Season 3
This is all that matters. Olivia Colman, people. OLIVIA COLMAN is already a queen in my eyes, and now she’s the actual Queen of England. The Crown returns with a new cast (including Colman replacing Clare Foy) and a new era in Queen Elizabeth II’s life, with a shifting political climate in Britain, Princess Margaret’s marital issues, Prince Charles, and the Queen’s jubilee. And Olivia Colman, just completely crushing it.

HOT PICK: Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings, Season 1
Dolly Parton is an international treasure. I once saw her play a miniature saxophone and break up a fist fight at a concert, true story. This Netflix anthology series digs into the “stories, memories, and inspirations” behind each of her beloved songs, with biggies like Kathleen Turner and Julianne Hough starring in individual episodes. Perfect cozy viewing.
High Seas, Season 2
HOT PICK: Nailed It: Holiday!
Before you stuff your face with all sorts of cakes and desserts in December, spend your November watching people make those very cakes and desserts. Reality show Nailed It! returns, with all sorts of holiday-themed baking disasters.

The Dragon Prince, Season 3
HOT PICK: The Irishman
I’ve been giving you lots of warm fuzzies this month, but it’s time to talk about crime, folks. Organized crime. The mob, specifically. Martin Scorsese makes his streaming directorial debut with this Netflix Original film starring Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci about the life of career hitman Frank Sheeran and his role in the disappearance of labor leader Jimmy Hoffa. The cast is basically an Academy Awards roll call and uses that hot new de-aging CGI technology, so it’ll be worth your time.
