Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Just days before saying farewell to 2015 for good, let's look forward to our brighter Netflix future. It's one that includes the Keira Knightley version of Pride and Prejudice, the final season of seminal television program Parks and Recreation, the Degrassi reboot that Drake might watch, and something called Under Arrest: Put Some Clothes On. The mix of new additions promises equal parts romcom, action, animated, and reality for a well-rounded viewing experience in 2016. Below, find our picks to queue up first, and the full list below that.

Watch It First

Pride and Prejudice

The 2005 remake of Pride and Prejudice is a controversial pick among Jane Austen faithfuls, but one that's worth a re-watch ten years later. At the very least, Elizabeth Bennet, played by Keira Knightley, will encourage you to stick to the New Year's resolution of "suffer no Tinder fools."

Shout Gladi Gladi

Narrated by Meryl Streep, this documentary is about those who treat African women and girls for obstetric fistula, a medical condition developed during pregnancy. Specifically, it follows Ann Gloag and her work with patients in Malawi and Sierra Leone.

Parks and Recreation, Season 7

A final, bittersweet romp through one of the best shows on television's final season. The last episodes debut on January 13, so this is your prime opportunity to catch up on the previous six seasons (they're all on Netflix as well).
