April is going to bring us the first month of the MLB season, the Stanley Cup Playoffs, and Game of Thrones. But don’t forget that a new month also means new content arriving on Netflix! Add all of this up, and, boy, it’s going to be hard to not be lazy.

A new month also means that we’ll unfortunately lose some shows and movies on Netflix, so I’ll provide that information in case you want to quickly watch any of those titles before they’re gone.

Let’s first take a look at what’s coming to Netflix in April (I’ve put some notable titles in bold to try to help you out)…

April 1

2001: A Space Odyssey
A Clockwork Orange
Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, Season 5 

I enjoy any of the shows Anthony Bourdain has done, but Parts Unknown really is great television, and season five of the show was as good as ever (it aired in 2015). These are all very well done productions by CNN featuring Bourdain at various locations around the globe, and make for perfect background television, if for example you’re looking for something to put on at home while getting some work done at the same time.

The Ranch: Part 1 (Netflix Original)

YouTube description (from Netflix):

Set in the present day on a Colorado ranch, THE RANCH stars Ashton Kutcher as Colt, a failed semi-pro football player who returns home to run the family ranching business with his older brother Jameson “Rooster” (Danny Masterson) and father Beau (Sam Elliott), whom he hasn’t seen in 15 years. Debra Winger stars as Colt’s and Rooster’s mother, Maggie, who runs the local town bar.

Don Reo (T wo and Half Men, My Wife and Kids) and Jim Patterson (Two and a Half Men, Mike and Molly) executive produce. Kutcher and Masterson also serve as executive producers.

I hate to make judgments off a trailer, but yikes. The Ranch looks like a bad CBS sitcom, only with f-bombs allowed.

And why is the laugh track still a thing? Funny shows over the last few years: Curb Your Enthusiasm, Parks & Recreation, The Office, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Silicon ValleyFlight of the ConchordsThe League, 30 Rock… zero laugh track.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Season 2 (Netflix Original)

The second season of Netflix’s comedy co-created by Tina Fey and starring Ellie Kemper (you may know her as Erin from The Office). Season one got a 95% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and was nominated for seven Emmy awards.

The YouTube description:

Ellie Kemper stars as Kimmy Schmidt, a woman who escapes from a doomsday cult and starts life over in New York. After living in a cult for fifteen years, Kimmy decides to reclaim her life and start over in New York City. Armed with just a backpack, light-up sneakers, and a couple of way-past-due library books, she’s ready to take on a world she didn’t even think existed anymore. Wide-eyed but resilient, nothing is going to stand in her way.
