It is about to be April and Netflix is ready to get down with new seasons of their original series to go along with some new original filmstrip well.  Some stand out additions this month include, the original A Nightmare on Elm Street, Tropic Thunder & Schindler’s List.  Netflix is also adding to their Disney library with Steven Spielberg’s The BFG.  This month almost marks the return of Mystery Science Theater 3000 which is something I am looking forward to because of my love for terribly great movies.  With those great addition, we unfortunately have to see some movies and shows leave the library, including some television classics like Buffy the Vampire Slayer  and The X-Files, so as always, be sure to stream those before they are gone.  Here is the full list of content that is entering and leaving the Netflix library in April, 2017.
