Benji is back for a new generation

No grim and gritty reboot here. Netflix has a brand-new, family-friendly Benji movie.


There's actually a post-credits scene in the newest Benji flick. 


Welcome back to your guide to finding out what's new online. Every week, we put together a podcast that lets you know what's been added to services like Netflix, Hulu and (sometimes) Amazon Prime. The audio is about a minute or two long.

Dogs: You either love them or are some kind of monster. Assuming you're not heartless, you might be interested in Netflix's newest original film, "Benji." Netflix also added several other Benji films including the original 1974 version, "Benji: Off the Leash" and "For the Love of Benji."

Netflix also added a new comedy special from Ricky Gervais entitled "Humanity." Oddly enough, one of the bits in the special is about dogs. That does not guarantee you will enjoy it. 

Since you're reading this, let's give you some extra information not found in the podcast: HBO added one of the best Christmas movies ever made, "Die Hard," as well as two of its sequels. You also have the rest of the month to watch "Platoon" on HBO Now because it goes offline on March 31.
