Netflix this week plans to add 17 new TV shows and movies to its streaming lineup, including four originals.
The new title list will include Cargo (pictured above), a Netflix original horror film starring Martin Freeman (The Office, Fargo) as a diseased-infected father who searches for a new home for his baby daughter during a worldwide pandemic.
RottenTomatoes.com, which tracks critical reviews, gives the movie a score of 85 out of a possible 100 with 11 of 13 critics surveyed by the site saying they liked Cargo.
“I don’t mean to keep throwing The Walking Dead under the spike-tired dystopian bus… (but) Cargo just does it better,” writes Matt Donato of Slashfilm.
Other notable additions to Netflix this week: Season four of Inspector Gadget, a Netflix animated children’s comedy which is a reboot of the 1980s series; and Ali Wong: Hard Knock Wife, a Netflix original stand-up special starring the aforementioned comedienne.
