How would you kick off a new decade? Netflix has chosen to go the route of a new show exploring what the world would do if presented with the second coming of Christ. Perhaps. Messiah is the streaming service’s first major original content release. I’m about five episodes in, and it’s solid. I also have a degree with a focus on the Middle East, so I know what you’re doing, Netflix.
It’s also fun with it coming right after Netflix’s brand new hit, The Witcher.
Outside of Messiah, there is the final season of BoJack Horseman hitting towards the end of the month with a heavy dose of other Netflix originals and films. For those looking for fresh content in the non-Netflix original space, the Lord of the Rings trilogy arrives without Fellowship (that’s just weird), along with Ferris Bueller’s Day Off for us older Millenials.
Netflix always comes through with a promo pack of goodness incorporating a 2019 lookback with the Messiah.
