New to TVNZ OnDemand in November

Goodnight Kiwi makes a comeback today on TVNZ OnDemand, combining animation with celebrity storytelling of local yarns by the likes of the Topp Twins, Hilary Barry, Madeleine Sami & Jackie van Beek, Jeremy Wells, Urzila Carlson and Oscar Kightley.

“These New Zealand stories will jump off the page through original illustrations, created in-house at TVNZ, showcased by lively performances,” promises the publicity for the series made in partnership with The Warehouse.

There will be two new stories each week, with te reo readings as well.

Also new this month on the streaming platform will be:

  • Wu-Tang Clan: Of Mics & Men (S1) and Wu-Tang: An American Saga (S1), from November 26;
  • reality show Paradise Hotel (S1), from November 21; and,
  • box sets of Seinfeld (S1-9), from November 22, and Community (S1-6), from November 29.

TVNZ OnDemand also is adding two seasons of the Jo Brand-Alan Davies social workers comedy, Damned (from November 26), and S1 of Ramy, from tomorrow.

The Guardian thought Damned a “scathing and subtle … pitch black comedy” that ” makes unfunny subjects hilarious”.

Ramy is a Hulu comedy about a first-generation Egyptian-American who is on a spiritual journey in his politically divided New Jersey neighbourhood.

The Sydney Morning Herald said it was “entertaining, illuminating and drenched in millennial ennui” while The Atlantic said it “executes its male narratives with wit and precision” but “fails to demonstrate that Muslim women’s stories can be more than a sympathetic canvas of unfulfilled dreams”.
