New on Netflix UK: January 2018

Dirk Gently

Fargo, Dirk Gently, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Lovesick, The BFG and He Named Me Malala, make up the January highlights on Netflix

Ewan McGregor plays two very different roles in the unmissable Fargo: Season 3 (20 Jan) alongside Mary Elizabeth Winstead, David Thewlis, Scoot McNairy and the excellent Carrie Coon who plays a detective investigating a double homicide. Jerry Seinfeld's chat show, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee (5 Jan), has been running for years and is exactly what it says it is. Also in TV, the entirety of Weeds (1 Jan) and Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency: Season 2 (5 Jan).

British romantic comedy Lovesick (1 Jan) is now on its third season. The show, originally titled Scrotal Recall, follows a young man who must inform all his exes that he has a STD. Dark British comedy, The End of the F***ing World: Season 1 (5 Jan), is based on a graphic novel by Charles S Forsman and follows the misdeeds of a teenage psychopath and a troubled young woman who hit the road together. It's sharp, bitesize episodes are superbly written and the two talented lead actors, Jessica Barden and Alex Lawther, share great chemistry.

Steven Spielberg's The BFG (8 Jan) is a heart-warming adaption of Roald Dahl's novel featuring a perfectly cast Mark Rylance voicing the titular character. Jack Black stars in The Polka King (12 Jan), which dramatizes the rise and fall of Jan Lewan who conned his fans to invest in a Ponzi scheme. You can also watch the documentary, The Man Who Would Be Polka King, which is released on the same day. He Named Me Malala (1 Jan) tells the incredible true story of the Nobel Peace Prize winner and devoted female education activist who was shot in the head by the Taliban and survived.

Also in film, look out for Super Dark Times (1 Jan), The Open House (19 Jan), I Am Not Madame Bovary (2 Jan) and David Wain's A Futile and Stupid Gesture (26 Jan) which tells the tale of National Lampoon. Robert Pattinson turns in another impressive performance as a bank robber on the run in the Safdie Brothers' energetic and gritty Good Time (11 Jan). Don't miss this one.
