The Best of What’s Coming to Netflix in January 2018

This month belongs to David Wain and the legacy of National Lampoon

A Futile And Stupid Gesture

    When it comes to Netflix, it’s really about the original programming, and January is no exception. The beginning of 2018 sees exciting new films by David Wain and Mike Flanagan, a new home for Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, and one intriguing docu-series about food.

    Having said that, there are still a handful of popcorn classics for our respective queues, from the entire Lethal Weapon franchise to The Godfather trilogy to, yes, Caddyshack. It’s a long list, but fortunately for you, we’ve broken it all down for your next TV party.

    Take a look below.
