Geekflix – Top Netflix Picks For October 2015

Another month approaches and that means new shows coming to Netflix. A bit shy of good movies this month, but there are plenty quality shows to occupy everyone’s time as they prepare their costumes for Halloween.
batman begins
1. Batman Begins – (10/1)
The start of the Nolan trilogy. What better way to get someone in the mood for Trick or Treating then by watching the man who dresses like a bat and goes around handing out tricks to all the bad criminals of Gotham city.
2. The Originals: Season 2 – (10/6) & Vampire Diaries: Season 6 – (10/2)
Nothing says Halloween more than Vampires. The sixth season of the original series and the second of its spin off will help to people to play catch up with their favorite Vampire couples. At least it will keep the kids away from watching Twilight.
3. The Flash: Season 1 – (10/6) & Arrow: Season 3  -(10/7)
If you’re a comic book fan and you’re not following these shows then you are doing a disservice to yourself. Watch as Barry Allen gets superpowers and becomes The Flash and his idol and fellow hero, Oliver Queen fights against Ra’s al Ghul.
4. iZombie: Season 1 – (10/6)
To keep the Halloween theme up, let’s check out some zombies. In this new series based on a comic book, a young medical resident finds herself turned into a zombie, but is able to sustain her cravings by working in a morgue. She also discovers she can recall the memories of the deceased after eating their brain and uses the info to fight crime. Who says there are no good zombies?
freak show
5. American Horror Story: Freak Show – (10/6)
Nothing like a day at the circus to make you feel at ease. Tapping into the fear of clowns this latest installment from the American Horror Story series makes you wonder who is really the Freaks in this world.
6. Supernatural: Season 10 – (10/7)
This is definitely the month for CW shows. Everyone’s demon slaying brothers are back again, but things are going to be different this time around. Now Dean is a demon. That may complicate things just a bit.
7. Mr. Peabody and Sherman – (10/9)
While not looking as polished as the one the movie Dreamworks released in theaters, fans of the old show might find something to enjoy about the story of a Dog and his boy as they travel through history. If anything, Chris Parnell voicing Mr. Peabody should be good for a few laughs.


walt disney 8. Walt Disney Animation Studios Short Film Collection (10/25)
The perfect thing for the Disney fans out there. This short collection includes the Tangled epilogue short, Tangled Ever After, The Frozen epilogue short, Frozen Fever, and Oscar Award winning short, Paperman. Definately a must watch for the animation fans out there.
9. Lego DC comics: Batman Be-Leagured – (10/20)
Not the Lego Batman we need but the Lego Batman we deserve. Not the Lego Batman from the Lego Movie but a simple Batman adventure with Legos. Who knows, it may hold people over until the proper Lego Batman Movie in 2017.
popples 2015 10. Popples – (10/30)
Any body remember the Popples? Well for all the 80s kids out there, Netflix will be launching a new series staring those lovable creatures who could tuck there bodies in and bounce around. Who knows, might be entertaining.
