Everything Streaming in November
We’ve entered November, and so comes the holiday season of 2022. That means a lot of new content will be dropping, and lucky for you I’m a heavy consumer who loves to share it all with you guys. Here are new titles dropping on your favorite streaming platforms this month.
After coming out swinging for the fences in October with Ryan Murphy’s Dahmer and The
Watcher, which, if I do say so myself, really fizzled out with a very mediocre ending, Netflix is following up with a true-crime-a-palooza beginning Nov. 2. Here's what's in store.
Killer Sally – The true story of former professional bodybuilder Sally McNeil who, along with
family and friends, charts her rocky marriage and its bloody end in a Valentine’s Day murder.

Enola Holmes 2 – You either love it or hate it, but regardless, Enola is back with her quirky girl boss personality. Here she takes on her first case with help from her hot brother, Sherlock, played by Henry Cavill, and I assume you need no reminder of who he is. *And speaking of Henry Cavill, this little birdie knows he will NOT be continuing on in his role as The Witcher, presumably because he is returning to his Superman role. The hunky Liam Hemsworth will be taking his place, so don’t be too sad about it. Helena Bonham Carter also returns as the Holmes’s mother. Streaming Nov. 4

**Sidenote: If you haven’t seen LOU on Netflix, you absolutely should hop on over there and
watch Allison Janney kick some serious ass and go toe-to-toe with her son, played by Logan
Marshall Green. It’s really good.
A Friend of the Family – This released back in early October, but IT’S SO UNBELIEVABLE (and still going), I just can’t pass on mentioning it again. It’s truly the most incredible true-crime story I’ve ever heard or seen. I usually have a lot to say during series I’m watching. With this one, literally the only three things my Dummy (husband) and I have said while watching it are, “HOLY SHIT,” “Oh my God,” and “I cannot believe this actually happened. WhAT the f***?!”
I’m not kidding.
This true-crime drama miniseries is based on true events and follows Robert Berchtold, a close friend of the Broberg family, who kidnaps young Jan Broberg twice over a period of two years, and the shit he tells her about why is absolutely astounding … and she believed it for years. Further making this so shocking is the fact that local, state, and national law enforcement pretty much cleared the way of any culpability for him to do it. There’s so much more to the story, but I won’t divulge it all here. I want you to go watch it for yourself. Then I want you to let me know how you reacted while watching it. Currently streaming
