new on netflix streaming january 2015With the new year comes a slew of new movies and TV shows on Netflix, and everyone's favorite streaming service is adding some great titles in January 2015.

On the movie side, a bevy of box-office heavyweights are being added to the instant mix, including Disney's live-action "101 Dalmatians," Jim Carrey's "Bruce Almighty," and Michael Bay actioner "Bad Boys II." Some smaller favorites are also coming to Netflix: Internet obsession "Mean Girls" returns (to stay?! Please!), Reese Witherspoon dark comedy "Election" gets a run, and this past summer's little-comedy-that-could, "Chef," makes its subscription service debut.

But wait, there's more!

"Friends" fans have been dying for the series to come to Netflix, and now that dream is coming true! Beginning January 1, subscribers will be able to watch every single episode, catching up with Monica, Joey, Chandler, Ross, Rachel, and Phoebe whenever and wherever they want. Other great shows being added in January 2015 include TNT's "Dallas": Season 3, USA's "White Collar": Season 5, and Syfy's "Being Human": Season 4. But what we're most looking forward to is the January 16 premiere of Season 2 of the Netflix Original "The Fall," starring Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan. Season 1 was so good, we watched it twice.

Here's a much larger rundown of what's new on Netflix in January 2015, provided by Netflix. As always, all titles and dates are subject to change.
