What’s Coming and Going From Netflix the Week of June 17, 2019

Thank god for The Handmaid’s Tale on Hulu, because Netflix’s offerings this week are, at first glance, garbage. If you were a fan of the first seasons of The Casketeers, Girls Incarcerated, GO! Live Your Way, Dark, or The Confession Tapes, you’re in luck as the second seasons of all these shows hit the ‘Flix […]

Is there one show everyone agrees is stellar? Yes, and that show is Black Mirror. And Season 5 (there have been four seasons?! We are getting old, friends) drops on Wednesday. Wednesday!

We regret to inform you that Stranger Things is bringing New Coke back from the Upside Down

Those who lived through New Coke’s short but terrifying reign in 1985 are still traumatized by Coca-Cola’s ill-conceived attempt to reinvigorate the iconic brand with a new formula. We can’t even talk about it. Actually, we don’t talk about it. Honestly, no one even remembered it until just now. That formula was…Read more… Continue Reading […]

What’s Coming and Going From Netflix the Week of May 20, 2019

Let’s give a little credit to Allison Williams (a phrase you don’t hear often) for successfully shedding the role of Girls’ Marnie Michaels for horror movie lead. Or maybe we should thank Jordan Peele? I have to thank someone for the terror inflicted on us this week in the form of The Perfection. Williams plays […]

Simply the beast: 18 of the greatest dog sidekicks in pop culture

The W.C. Fields adage warning against working with children or animals is solid advice, mostly—but pop culture (and history) has also proven that dogs have more than earned their place as man’s best friend, becoming as integral to our existence as work and play. They listen to us whine and offer slobbery consolation…Read more… Continue […]

One more episode of Game of Thrones left. A lot of people are gonna have some postpartum feelings. I’m going to feel relieved. I’ve spent eight years deciding not to watch our decade’s defining TV show. For a while I felt like an outcast, like Jon Snow, or Arya Stark, or Theon Greyjoy, or Tyrion […]

Game of Thrones is near its end. After spending a decade with this television show, the end feels momentus.

In fact, there were so many Monday morning articles about all the settings you should try cranking—brightness, contrast, gamma, picture modes, your backlight, et cetera—that you probably have a much different…Read more… Continue Reading at https://lifehacker.com

Calm Down About Spoilers

Spoiler culture—the capital-D Discourse surrounding how much of the plot you should know before heading into a piece of media—reached its apotheosis with the releases of Avengers: Endgame and the Game of Thrones episode “The Long Night.” The furor around spoilers is such that it is entirely believable that a man…Read more… Continue Reading at https://jalopnik.com

What’s Coming and Going From Netflix the Week of April 29, 2019

It’s May, and your cup runneth over—if not in all areas of your life, then at least the most important one: the area in which you recline on your sectional, eating Pop Corners while alternately watching TV and playing on your phone (some call this area the “living room”; I prefer “salon” or “parlour”). We’ve […]

Jeopardy! producers have stripped contestants of their god-given right to bet $69 on Final Jeopardy

It’s a tumultuous time for America’s most nominally reserved game show, as the fervently nerdy Jeopardy! community reckons not only with Alex Trebek’s recent cancer diagnosis, but also with the earth-shattering, record-breaking run of sports bettor juggernaut James Holzhauer.
