The new Netflix slate for February offers, let’s face it, slim pickings in the way of exciting movies. The list of films that will disappear from the popular streaming service on February 1 is far more impressive than the new arrivals. But for fans of the award-winning Netflix original series House of Cards, February is the month they’ve been waiting for.
Netflix will make fans wait until the end of the month to get their fix of Washington backstabbing and dirty tricks. Season 3 of the much-buzzed-about political drama debuts on Netflix on February 27.
House of Cards is not the only new programming coming to Netflix toward the end of February. An all-new special from British comedian and self-styled social commentator Russel Brand — Russel Brand: Messiah Complex — hits the service on February 26.
But Netflix also dives deep into the archives of classic TV, with Seasons 1-5 of one of the most popular comedies of all time, the anti-war sitcom M*A*S*H becoming available on February 1. The show, set in a medical unit during the Korean War, lasted 11 seasons — much longer than the war itself, which went on for four years, from 1950 to 1953. But the first five seasons of M*A*S*H represented the show at its best.
Movie buffs will want to cram their viewing into the remaining days of January, however, as a number of great movies vanish from Netflix on February 1, including Francis Ford Coppola’s surreal Vietnam War flick Apocalypse Now as well as several vintage James Bond movies, including From Russia With Love, Goldfinger and Live and Let Die.
Both seasons of Fawlty Towers, widely considered the greatest British sitcom ever, will be gone from Netflix at the start of February, as will director David Fincher’s brilliant account of the hunt for one of America’s most notorious serial killers, Zodiac.
