Netflix’s new offerings for November look set to entertain you through to the end of the year.

Highlights include the hilarious Army Daze, supernatural encounters in the long running local horror series, Incredible Tales, and a new Spongebob movie going straight to the streaming service instead of cinemas.

Here’s our list of six new shows to catch on the streaming service this November.

Army Daze

Based on the 1987 theatre play, Army Daze explores the lives of bumbling recruits doing their Basic Military Training and forming comradery with each other in the process.

Fondly remembered for its humour, Army Daze is a trip down memory lane to anyone who went through National Service and, an interesting insight into Basic Military Training for everyone else.

Don’t miss the hilarious scene where the recruits are learning to camouflage themselves in the jungle using leaves!

Best of Incredible Tales

A series about supernatural encounters in Singapore and around the region, Incredible Tales has sent a chill down the spines of many Singaporeans since it started in 2004.

Featuring material submitted by viewers of the show, legends as well as stories written by authors like Russell Lee, Netflix features some of the best episodes from the series.

The Spongebob Movie: Sponge on the Run

The Spongebob Movie: Sponge on the run was originally due to be released in cinemas this year but that plan was shelved due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The third film in the Spongebob franchise, Sponge on the Run is the first to be fully animated with CGI (Computer-Generated Imagery) instead of 2D animation.

The movie talks about Spongebob’s pet snail, Gary, being snatched away. This leads Spongebob and his best friend, Patrick Star, to rescue the pet in an adventure which takes them both far beyond the comforts of Bikini Bottom.

Keanu Reeves even appears as a magic tumbleweed, in line with the Spongebob movies tradition of having a celebrity cameo.

First released in 1998, starring Lim Yu Beng and Chong Chia Suan and featuring many two-parter episodes, Triple Nine’s third season can now be enjoyed by a new generation of Singaporeans.
