Now Streaming: Muppets Most Wanted, Neighbors, and More

by | August 12, 2014 | Comments

This week on streaming video, we’ve got a Muppet sequel, a surprise hit comedy, and Disneynature’s latest, as well as a dark comedy and a period drama. New titles available to stream on Netflix include Lars von Trier’s controversial two-part drama about a sex addict and two very different TV series: a scientific journey hosted by Neil deGrasse Tyson and a miniseries spoof starring a wealth of comedic talent. Read on for details:
