A monthly breakdown of the movies and series we can’t wait to stream.

Tidying Up with Marie Kondo

Japanese organizing consultant Marie Kondo’s 2011 book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up became such a massive global success that KonMari (her method of decluttering and organizing) is now pretty much a verb in our urban lexicon. “I’m KonMari-ing my apartment this weekend.” Now, Netflix has tapped Kondo for a home makeover show that involves her visiting American families and teaching them how to let go of clutter and keep only the items that bring them joy. Could there be a better way to start the new year?

Sex Education

Agent Dana Scully is back! Well, not quite. In this Netflix original, Gillian Anderson plays a sex therapist trying to raise her teenage son in a matter-of-fact environment where no sexual topic is off limits. (“I’ve noticed you’re pretending to masturbate and I was wondering if you wanted to talk about it,” she says in one scene.) Though mortified, her son begins to use his years of reluctantly imbibed knowledge about sex to run an underground sex therapy clinic in his high school. Naturally, awkward hilarity ensues.

FYRE: The Greatest Party That Never Happened

For a festival that never was, it sure got a lot of social media traction. Billed as a hyper-exclusive event for the ultra rich and famous, the inaugural music festival attracted a slew of celebrities and influencers to a remote island in the Bahamas, only to be greeted with makeshift tents and wet mattresses, questionable cheese sandwiches in styrofoam boxes, a lack of drinking water and cell phone service, and only one band that actually performed. This Netflix documentary takes a long look at all the chaos as well as the elite influencers caught in the middle of it.
