February is the perfect month for Netflix and chill, although apart from Judd Apatow's comedy series Love, there's not a whole lot new in the romance department.

For those couples who love to bond over real life, however, there's a myriad of new documentaries arriving this month.

Oscar nominated The Look of Silence is directed by Joshua Oppenheimer who also helmed The Act of Killing.  In this documentary he follows an Indonesian man as he confronts the leaders of death squads about their execution of his brother Ramli in 1965.

My Beautiful Broken Brain is a moving and uplifting doc about young stroke patient Lotje Sodderland's struggle to regain language and memory.

Plus, the highly anticipated second season of Netflix Original series Better Call Saul arrives February 15th, with one episode releasing each week thereafer.

The ten episode series will see Jimmy face a choice - will he take a safe corporate job or will he fall back into his 'Slippin Jimmy' ways?

The reboot of Fuller House is also pencilled in for February 26 with many of the original stars reprising their roles. 


A new Netflix Original series, Love, arrives on February 19.  Written and executive produced by Judd Apatow it sees nice guy Gus (Paul Rust) and brazen wild-child Mickey (Gillian Jacobs) as they navigate intimacy, commitment, love and other things they were hoping to avoid.
