Netflix presents its November lineup.

The weather is turning from chilly to downright cold, the leaves are almost off all of the trees and turkeys are showing up in cases at your local supermarket. It must be November. 

And just like every month, a turn of the calendar means there are new TV and films available to stream on services like Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu. But this month also brings two whole new streamers into the game: Apple TV+ and Disney+. 

To help sort through the even bigger pile of new content available at the click of your mouse, we picked the five best TV series and movies that you should add to your queues this month from the wider world of streaming. Just you wait until HBO Max and Peacock get in on the game.

If you love shouty comedy: ‘Billy on the Street’

Billy Eichner has a particular brand of humor in his web series-turned-reality-show “Billy on the Street,” and you probably either love it or hate it. Now multiple seasons of the comedian shouting at random New Yorkers quite literally on the street, sometimes in the company of slightly dazed celebrities, is available for your binging pleasure. It will either too much to handle or a lovely afternoon spent with a performer who never goes below a 10 on the intensity scale. Not everyone can pull that off, but for Eichner, it works. 

Stream Seasons 2-5 on Netflix.

If you love true crime and podcasts: ‘Dirty John’

Connie Britton and Eric Bana star in this limited series based on a true crime podcast from the Los Angeles Times. There is romance, a devilish conman, money and expensive real estate flying around, family drama and a lot of poor decisions wrapped up in the series. Britton and Bana are great, but Julia Garner, who plays Britton’s daughter, shows off why she’s an actress worthy of that surprise Emmy Award this year (for a different show, but the point stands). 

Stream it Nov. 25 on Netflix.

If you know relationships are complicated: ‘You’re the Worst’ 

The final season of FXX’s critically acclaimed comedy is available to stream, bringing some semblance of closure to Jimmy (Chris Geere) and Gretchen (Aya Cash), who are, as the title indicates, pretty much the worst. Over the years, the black comedy has dealt with serious topics like depression and military PTSD, but also finding time for a collection of delightful “Sunday Fun-days” and scene-stealing performances from Kether Donohue as the “best friend” type with a lot going on in her own life. The comedy can be tough to watch, but it’s worth getting through some of the rough patches to the satisfying end. 

Stream Season 5 Nov. 9 on Hulu.

If you missed this family dramedy gem in theaters in 2018: ‘Instant Family’ 

Rose Byrne and Mark Wahlberg star in this surprisingly affecting comedy about a couple in their 40s who decide to become foster parents to three siblings. Yes, there are plenty of jokes about tantrums, messes and rebellious teens, but this is the kind of movie that sneaks up on you emotionally, revealing a depth that isn’t seen in boisterous trailers. Byrne and Wahlberg are a perfect pair of stars to balance the comedy and drama in the film, helped with great supporting performances from Octavia Spencer and Tig Notaro. 

Stream it Nov. 14 on Amazon Prime or Hulu.

If you have ever felt personally victimized by the Disney Vault: ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’

There are an overwhelming number of movies and TV series from Disney’s (and 20th Century Fox’s) past that will become available when the company’s streaming service Disney+ launches later this month, good and bad alike. But perhaps the most exciting part of the extensive library Disney is showing off in long Twitter threads is the animated classics we all know and love that have only been available to purchase over the years intermittently as they flew in and out of the “Disney Vault.” Now that vault is open (for $6.99/month), and if you’re planning to watch the greats again, you might as well start with the film that put Disney on the map in 1937: “Snow White.” And then let the nostalgia parade begin. 

Stream it on Disney+ Nov. 12.
