The ever-growing options for what to watch on Netflix can be mind-boggling at times. Whole evenings have been spent flicking through the endless choices simply trying to agree on one thing to look at.

So if it helps, each week we will be giving you our five picks of some new and old additions to the streaming service that you should check out.

1. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Netflix's first original comedy Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt proved a hit with viewers last year and we have been patiently awaiting for what seems like forever for season two, but all thirteen episodes arrive at last on Netflix this Friday.

From what we can see, Kimmy gets herself a new job in a year-round Christmas shop, which is perfect for her really. There's a couple of potential love interests, Tituss is still nailing the one-liners, while Jacqueline and Lilian are their usual crazy selves.

Written by 30 Rock's Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, this is definitely one worth checking out if you haven't already.

2. Peaky Blinders

The second series of the popular British historical drama arrived on Netflix this month, which stars our own Cillian Murphy as Birmingham-based mobster Thomas Shelby. Things have moved on a bit with the action now taking place in the Roaring Twenties where Thomas is determined to expand the family business at all costs, however a past enemy may be getting in his way. Played by none other than Murphy's Dark Knight Rises co-star Mr Tom Hardy, who make his first appearance in the show along with that glorious beard of his.

3. Cuckoo

This BBC comedy arrives on Netflix, starring the teacher from The Inbetweeners (Greg Davies), Emily from Friends (Helen Baxendale), Jake Peralta from Brooklyn Nine-Nine (Andy Samberg) and the wolf from Twilight (Taylor Lautner) - yep - how you go from one of the biggest selling movie franchises of all time to a British sitcom is beyond us, but he is very good in it, although he doesn't arrive until season 2.

It kicks off with Ken (Davies) and Lorna (Baxendale) collecting their daughter Rachel from the airport after her gap year only to see she has married Dale "Cuckoo" Ashbrick (Samberg), an eccentric American hippie whose mad for the drugs and loves everybody.

While Samberg left the show by its second season, he was replaced by Lautner as Cuckoo's long-lost lovechild Dale.

4. The Honourable Woman

Maggie Gyllenhaul won a Golden Globe for her outstanding performance in this gripping eight-part mini-series about the eponymous Nessa Stein, who witnessed the assassination of her father by the Palestinian Liberation Organisation. Stein inherits her father's company and changes its purpose from supplying arms to laying data cables between Israel and the West Bank in an attempt to help stem conflicts between Palestinians and Israelis. However, when a Palestinian businessman with close ties to her family's empire is killed, Nessa is thrown into the middle of a political minefield.

5. I Love You Phillip Morris

Directed by Crazy Stupid Love's Glenn Ficarra and John Riqua, I Love You Philip Morris is an often overlooked comedy with two fantastic performances from its leads Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor. Carrey plays an outed homosexual and former cop who's extravagant lifestyle and con-artistry leaves him in prison. There, he meets the titular Philip Morris (Ewan McGregor) and becomes obsessed with staying with him. It's quite a touching love story, punctuated with some ridiculous crime caper moments.
