It’s December with the holiday season now in full swing. But it’s not only Christmas movies being added to the various streaming sites this month. In fact, I am most excited for the new Korean paranormal romance drama, Goblin!
RELATED | New To Streaming in November 2016
Goblin: The Lonely and Great God tells the story of an immortal goblin who wants to die and an angel of death who has amnesia. Their supernatural lives become complicated when they each fall in love with a different woman. The series premieres exclusively on Dramafever this Friday, December 2.
What Type of Content to Expect
If you’re in search of swoon-worthy love stories and/or good storytelling (both classic and modern) from around the world in Film and TV without the excess of explicit content – then you’ve come to the right place. We embrace romance unabashedly. From the Jane Austen adaptations to the swoon-worthy Korean dramas, to the BBC period productions, the paranormal romance, and more.

Besides romance, we’re on the lookout for great stories that resonate with us! We’re looking to share and bring back the love for what makes stories wonderful. And without all the excess of graphic sexuality, extreme violence, profanity, vulgarity, cynicism, and lack of emotion. We also aim to find stories from all over the world because every culture has stories worth sharing.

More About This Monthly Feature
If you’re new to this monthly feature on The Silver Petticoat Review, a quick rundown: At the beginning of each month we put up a researched list of some of the best of what’s new to streaming from various popular (and lesser-known) sites including Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, Acorn TV, Dramafever, Viki, and more.
Per our site’s focus, the list is mostly focused on PG-13 like content or below minus a few exceptions (usually for artistic reasons or genre interest). Also, we have not seen everything we include, so if something more explicit sneaks past us, we apologize in advance! If we are unsure of the content, or if it’s Rated R or TV-MA, you will see a note next to the title.
I have linked every title, so you can learn more about the Film or TV Show to see if it is something of interest to you.
NOTE: The list should not be seen as recommendations! We cannot vouch for the quality of these Films & TV Shows
