3 Comments

Plenty of excellent TV shows, Original series, and movies have been added to Netflix this week. However, if nothing tickles your fancy, then you can start perusing through October's additions.

Fans of The Walking Dead can finally watch Season 8 on Netflix. First debuting on October 22, 2017, The Walking Dead: Season 8 continues the escalating conflict between series protagonist Rick Grimes--now leading the group of survivors in Alexandria--and another group, called the Saviors, who force other communities to pay tribute to them. Andrew Lincoln reprises his role as Rick, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan plays Negan, the dangerous leader of the Saviors. Season 8 marks the last full season of The Walking Dead that Lincoln will be a part of as he's scheduled to leave the show in Season 9.

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl is another excellent watch for the weekend. Don't worry, this is the first film in the franchise--the one that most fans agree to be the best. The movie stars Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow, and features equally magnetic performances from Geoffrey Rush as Captain Hector Barbossa, Orlando Bloom as Will Turner, and Keira Knightley as Elizabeth Swann. Even if the follow-up films weren't as universally loved, The Curse of the Black Pearl is still regarded as a modern-day classic for its goofy humor, charming cast of characters, and well-written story about pirates struggling to remain relevant in the face of well-armed trading companies.
