Every month, Netflix makes a whole bunch of it's subscribers extremely happy by adding great movies and super-addictive television shows. At the same time, it makes a bunch of other people super bummed out by yanking away their security blankets. Here's your guide to who's what and why:
Fans of unrelenting chipperness. Reese Witherspoon and her enormous tooth-filled smile began wheedling their way into America's heart 14 years ago with Legally Blonde, which—along with its less-inspired but equally zippy follow-up, Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde—begins streaming 24/7 on May 1.
"hahaha man its not about plot or 'figuring it out', it's predicated on dream logic, it's about facades" - me about legally blonde 2

Beard enthusiasts and duck haters. You might not realize it, but at this very moment, several close friends and family members are fist-pumping themselves into muscle spasms after learning that beginning May 14, they can start watching the duck-killing exploits of the Robertson family on Duck Dynasty around the clock.
I'd never miss Duck Dynasty if it involved an all-powerful mallard emperor named Quack Quack.

People who think history isn't bloody enough. If there's one thing that very few people say about World War II, it's that it wasn't quite violent enough for their tastes. Quentin Tarantino is that rare exception, which is why he tweaked reality in order to make his film Inglourious Basterds even more cringe-inducingly gory. Like-minded fans will get to enjoy his end product starting May 22.
