December brings us the Netflix originals A Very Murray Christmas, a holiday special from Bill Murray and filmmaker Sophia Coppola; the true-crime documentary series Making a Murderer: Season 1; the animated series F is for Family from comedian Bill Burr (not for kids) and Dawn of the Croods: Season 1 (definitely for kids); and the Adam Sandler comedy The Ridiculous Six, plus the Black Mirror holiday special “White Christmas,” the complete run of the Showtime comedy Nurse Jackie, the indie drama Queen of Earth with Elisabeth Moss, and the acclaimed German drama Phoenix with Nina Hoss.
