So without further ado, here’s what’s new on Netflix for the week of October 7 to October 13, 2019. As you can see, it’s fairly light in terms of new content this week, but there are still a few great options available.
For a complete list of everything that’s coming to the service for the whole month, check out our guide to what’s new on Netflix Australia in October 2019.
This week’s highlights
El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie (11/10/2019) (10/10/2019)
In its series finale, the groundbreaking show Breaking Bad offered a real sense of closure for long time fans, managing to wrap up all the major story threads without resorting to the kind of frustrating ambiguity that disappointed viewers of shows like Lost and The Sopranos. Because of this, we have to wonder why Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan would choose to return to something that already had the perfect sendoff, but given his fantastic track record, we’re going to give him the benefit of the doubt here. Filmed in secret and revealed to fans only a month ago, El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie is finally upon us this weekend, and we can’t wait to see what Gilligan has in store for Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), who’s been on the run from the law since the closing moments of Breaking Bad season 6.
Rhythm + Flow (09/10/2019)
Intended as a more urban, hip-hop take on The Voice-style talent show, Rhythm + Flow is a weekly series that sees budding MCs hit the stage in an effort to impress some of the biggest names in industry. The main judges include Cardi B, T.I., Chance the Rapper, but you can expect to see guest appearances from the likes of Snoop Dogg, too. Be warned – the language in this show is quite explicit, with the judges themselves handing out their fare share of cutting smack talk. That said, if you love rap music, this might very well be the hip-hop talent show you never knew you wanted.
It’s been a while since we’ve checked in with Australia’s own Sam Worthington, but now the Avatar-star (Avastar?) is back in the Netflix Original thriller, Fractured. Following a visit to the emergency room for his injured young daughter, Ray Monroe (Worthington) is briefly separated from his wife and child. Seems normal enough, but when Ray decides to check in on his daughter’s progress, the hospital reveals they have no record of her as a patient or the family’s consultation. Has the hospital abducted Ray’s family, or is he going crazy? Ray will stop at nothing to find the truth.
