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 (when we can) 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, and Viki. (With extra streaming sites noted at the bottom.)

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 also linked every title, so you can learn more about the Film or TV Show to see if it is something of interest to you.

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.

We also aim to find stories from all over the world because every culture has stories worth sharing.

  1. I can’t wait to watch the first full season of The Last Tycoon. I was also really impressed with Amazon’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and hear it has been picked up for a full season.

  2. Ooo! There are a lot of movies I need to check out on Amazon Prime and Netflix. And excited for the shows coming on Dramafever! Love this feature. 😀
