December means Christmas, taking a break, and revisiting old friends. Whatever December means to you, there's bound to be something for that on Stan, starting with everything that's been added in the past week.


Two new LGBTQI series have just arrived on Stan (with plenty more, including some landmark Australian series, coming throughout the summer), the rebooted The L Word: Generation Q and Work in Progress, both will have new episodes arriving weekly straight from the U.S.

Movies, Documentaries:

Stan's output deal with Paramount means trekkies will have want for nothing with the arrival of almost all of the Star Trek motion pictures. My picks are (in viewing order) Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, Star Trek: First Contact and 2009's Star Trek. And no, I didn't just pick the even numbered ones (no 'Nemesis' for example), although Star Trek III: The Search For Spock deserves an honourable mention as well).

And when you've watched all of the above and become a solid trekkie/trekker, you'll then be able to get the best out of the genre-defining Galaxy Quest, one of those cult favourites that all sci-fi fans can unite around. A documentary and retrospective on the hit film has just been released recently (see a couple of clips of it below), which just goes to show what a great film it was.

Here's a film that stars quite a few Hollywood heavyweights that, for some reason, I've never heard of. Infamous is definitely not famous it seems.

A few random Christmas movies that nobody has ever heard of have also just been added, including Christmas Matchmaker and A Christmas Princess. These will be great if you like these kinds of films.

And lastly, the documentary that made Morgan Spurlock a household name, Super Size Me will give you second thoughts about binging on fast food. An equivalent documentary for binge streaming might be a thing one day, but for now, just keep on telling yourself that it's not unhealthy at all to watch 8 hour-long episodes of a show without a toilet break.
