When Disney+ proclaimed “this holiday season, the best gifts come with a bow” they were letting us know they’re giving us an escapist romp to whisk us away from the doldrums of a very long year. I’ve enjoyed a thing or two from previous MCU series; I’ve also lifted an eyebrow at a few other things, but this latest adventure (based on the comics from Matt Fraction and David Aja) is an adrenaline fueled, emotionally snappy good time. (read Sherin Nicole’s review)

On Netflix

The Murphys are back for one last round and this time they’re looking inward. After suffering a devastating loss, the family handles it in the only ways they know how. Grief doesn’t always look how you’d expect and the Murphys are about to take you through all the different stages. It’s strangely touching in its own way…and perhaps a more accurate depiction of loss than you tend to see on screen, as much as you may not want to admit it. But never fear—F is For Family still has plenty of moments that’ll make you snort-laugh and plenty of moments that will make you wonder where the line is. 

F is For Family is back on Netflix on Thursday.

From Netflix:
As 1974 comes to a close, the Murphys are rocked by loss, each responding to it in very different ways. Sue tries to patch things up with her parents and estranged gay brother Louis; Kevin drives his girlfriend Alice crazy with his clinginess; and Bill and Maureen process their grief by acting out in uniquely transgressive fashion. Meanwhile, Frank sets off on a quest to understand the meaning of his father Big Bill’s life and, in the process, make himself a better husband to Sue and a better father to Kevin, Bill, Maureen and new baby daughter Megan.

Millarworld has struck—Mark Millar’s Super Crooks is coming to Netflix to take you on the animated thrill-ride of your life. When we first meet Johnny Bolt (Kenjirô Tsuda), he’s a loser high school kid who dreams of getting away from his hometown and making a name for himself. When he discovers he has electrical powers, he initially wants to be a hero from his favorite comics…but crime pays better. Fast-forward a few years later, he’s on the way to assembling a super-powered team of crooks for the ultimate heist—to steal from The Bastard (Hiroshi Yanaka), a supervillain with Mafia boss tendencies. Simple enough, right? Well, The Bastard’s hit list is long and bloody and the Super Crooks have a lot to learn (and even more to lose). 

Super Crooks is dark n’ dirty and definitely deadly and it keeps its foot on the gas the entire time. You’ll get cut by the snark and edge that make comics king while also appreciating the anime style and vignettes they give each member of the crooked crew. So sit back and let it entertain you with tales on how good it looks to be bad.

Get into Super Crooks on Friday, only on Netflix.

From Netflix:
Luck’s never been on their side, but this crew of small-time crooks with super powers recruited by none other than Johnny Bolt are rolling the dice on one last heist. Their target: A ruthless super-powered crime boss…. What can go wrong? Super Crooks is based on the graphic novel of the same name by comic book legend Mark Millar and artist Leinil Yu, directed by Motonobu Hori (Carole & Tuesday) and told in 13x 30-minute episodes produced by renowned Japanese anime studio bones.
