3 hits streaming on Netflix this weekend

3 hits streaming on Netflix this weekend

If you have a Netflix account, you're riding high lately. The streaming service is hitting it out of the ballpark, with intriguing original programming, like the interactive movie "Black Mirror: Bandersnatch."

And the hits just keep rolling in. Here's everything that's been added to Netflix for January.

Aside from the aforementioned "Bandersnatch," three programs have caught our eye. I'm talking "Bird Box," "A Series of Unfortunate Events" and "Tidying Up with Marie Kondo."

'Bird Box'

Everybody's talking about "Bird Box," and not just because people are doing the really dumb "Bird Box Challenge."

"Bird Box" follows Sandra Bullock as a mom with two kids trying to survive a mysterious force that's wiping out the world's population. Somehow, she has to get to one place that may offer sanctuary, but she and her family have to undertake the journey blindfolded. Talk about tense!

Too intense for you? Here's something the whole family can enjoy.

'A Series of Unfortunate Events'

This fun, slightly weird show, starring Neil Patrick Harris and his prosthetics, is in its third and final season on Netflix.

"A Series of Unfortunate Events" is based on the books by Lemony Snicket. In it, the Baudelaire orphans face a series of trials and the evil Count Olaf as they try to unlock long-held family secrets.

One more surprising show is finding a growing audience, and it's all about, believe it or not, cleaning your house.

'Tidying Up with Marie Kondo'

Marie Kondo is the queen of tidy, and she helps people tackle the clutter that's holding them back. Her one key instruction to people she's trying to help: "Does it spark joy?"

In "Tidying Up with Marie Kondo," watch her help people get control of their stuff and their lives again - and you'll also find a few tips to help yourself, too.
