As you know, content comes and goes on Netflix. Each week, we’re bringing you a list of titles that you’ll be able to stream in the U.S. in the coming days. As always, dates are subject to change.
I can't identify much to get excited about with this week's list, but there are some titles I'm not familiar with, and I know Mako Mermaids has a dedicated fan base. Besides, to each their own. Simon Rex fans, rejoice with the addition of Scary Movie 5!
