What's Worth Watching on Netflix in March?

For the most part, the new series that Netflix has introduced have mostly been must watch (with the exception of Fuller House). This month is where the surge in Netflix original programming really begins to show. After two new series in February (Fuller House and Love), March brings us three more original series (two returning and one new), which may force some Netflix viewers to become more selective about which series they have enough time to spend on.

March 1
Adult Beginners — A decent movie to watch on the couch, and an even better movie to watch while doing the laundry, the Rose Byrne/Nick Kroll/Bobby Cannavale indie is mildly entertaining until it fizzles toward a stopping point.
Ahora o Nunca
Aldnoah.Zero (Season 2)
American Pie Presents: Beta House
American Pie Presents: The Naked Mile — The nine year old straight-to-DVD sequel to American Pie was also the site’s very first real-time review. Sample passage:

The “naked mile” is revealed. It concerns cousin Dwight Stifler, who is attending college nearby. He’s in a fraternity. They throw a party called the naked mile. Thousands of naked college students run through campus to blow off steam. “It’s going to be epic.” Sadly, Erik is grounded forever, having killed his grandmother with his semen.

It is not good, unless you are very, very drunk.

Before We Go
Blue Mountain State: The Rise of Thadland
El Desconocido

Fresh Meat (Series 2) — Kristy was a big fan of season one of the British series, which comes from the people behind Peep Show, writing: “Like Happy Endings, Fresh Meat boasts a charismatic cast with such compelling chemistry that it opens up a whole world of storytelling possibilities as their worldviews and quirks collide.”
Frog Kingdom
Good Burger

Groundhog Day — Never gets old.
Heaven Knows What
Hot Sugar’s Cold World

Midsomer Murders (Series 17) — My wife — who lives on old British-lady shows — has been going through episodes of this series for what seems like the last year. If you like Doc Marten or Monarch Glen, this series is probably right up your alley and with 17 seasons, you won’t have to make a decision on a new series until 2017.
Road Trip: Beer Pong — In case American Pie: The Naked Mile didn’t satiate your need for awful.
Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves — Terrible movie (as most Robin Hood adaptations are), but I don’t care. I love it. Christian Slater, Kevin Costner, Morgan Freeman, Alan Rickman and some terrible Bryan Adams’ music make this the perfect bad 90’s movie.
Scarface — If you haven’t seen it yet, about 100,000 pop culture references will finally start to make sense to you after you have.
Star Trek: The Motion Picture
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
The Young Kieslowski

March 2
For Grace

March 4
House of Cards (Season 4) — The first staff member who finishes will review it. If that’s me, don’t look for a review anytime soon. It’s a slog, even when it’s good slog.
Lab Rats (Season 4)
Lego Friends: The Power of Friendship
Lego: Bionicle: The Journey to One (Season 1)
Louie (Season 5)

March 7
Cuckoo (Seasons 1-2)
Halo: The Fall of Reach
Sin Filtro

March 8
Digimon Fusion (Season 2)

March 9
The Returned (Season 1) — This is the original French series, I believe, and not the crappy American remake. The first season was strong, but faded near the end.

March 10
Comedy Bang! Bang! (Season 4, part 3)
Hateship Loveship

March 11
Dinotrux (Season 2)
Flaked (Season 1) — Bad premise, great trailer. Looks like another solid new series entry for Netflix, this one starring Will Arnett.
Netflix Presents: The Characters (Season 1)
Popples (Season 2)

March 12

March 15
10,000 Saints
The Falling

Final Girl — Not to be confused with Final Girl(s)
Finders Keepers
Power Rangers Dino Charge (Season 1, part 2)
War Pigs

March 16
Are You Here

Charlie St. Cloud — I have zero recollection of this movie, but apparently I reviewed it. The headline is “What if Nicholas Sparks cornholed Sixth Sense.
Gridiron Gang
Happy Valley (Season 2)
Larry Crowne — Literally one of the most bland movies I have ever seen. Tom Hanks directed it, and it stars Julia Roberts. It’s kind of likable, though, but nothing compared to Hanks’ directorial debut, That Thing You Do!.
Promised Land — Co-written by the movie’s stars Matt Damon and John Krasinski, and directed by Gus Van Sant, no one has any memory of this film whatsoever.

March 18
He Never Died
Jimmy Carr: Funny Business

Marvel’s Daredevil (Season 2) — This is the only series anyone really cares about this month. The Punisher and Elektra join the series.
The Mr. Peabody and Sherman Show (Season 2)
My Beautiful Broken Brain
Pee-wee’s Big Holiday

March 22
The Art of Organized Noize
The Ouija Experiment 2: Theatre of Death — One of several straight-to-streaming sequels on this list that no one asked for.

March 24
The Forbidden Kingdom
A Promise

March 25
Trailer Park Boys (Season 10)

March 31
Bachelor Party 2: The Last Temptation
Fright Night 2
Murder Rap: Inside the Biggie and Tupac Murders
Sunshine Superman

Yu-Gi-Oh! Bonds Beyond Time
Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal (Seasons 1-2)
