We don’t have a huge list for you this week, but probably most noteworthy is the addition of Netflix’s Oscar-nominated documentary The Square. Netflix is apparently also releasing an Aquarium video that you can keep on your TV similar to the Fireplace For Your Home title they offered for the holidays.
