Netflix announced that they are producing another sitcom. Flaked will star Will Arnett as a self help guru who gets caught up in his own lies. The producer/showrunner will be the guy behind IFC's The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret. Todd Margaret was a misfire with some interesting ideas; IMO. Hope they have better success with this.

Netflix developing series based on Legend of Zelda
As much as I adore the games, I'm hoping this dies before anything comes of it.

Netflix has bought worldwide rights to Cary Fukunaga's Beasts of No Nation and will release the film theatrically in the fall with a major awards push. It will be interesting to see what Netflix does with dvd/blu for these original films.

Netflix's newest series Between is airing simultaneously in Canada (well, one hour difference) on a weekly basis and will not be binge-able until it's finished

It looks like the complete opposite of binge-able anyway.

I recently finished the third season. Best way I can put it is that for a lot of it's run it felt like Justified, if it was your average CBS-type procedural. But that's not necessarily a slam against the show as a whole because there were enough elements in place that didn't quite feel like it would be on any of the major networks.

[Reveal] Spoiler:
But with the way the end of the third season went, it felt like it was slipping away from the procedural trap and becoming much more like a cable show. Especially considering how it ended on the cliffhanger it did.


It also proves Lou Diamond Philips is surely due a McConnaissance.

I've recently finished the fourth season, and Netflix picking it up has been a boon for the show. While it still has the occasional procedural episode, there's more of an overarching storyline to the fourth season. I still think that at its best, Longmire is a step below Justified, but it's still quite good, especially as it's buoyed by strong performances from Robert Taylor in the lead role, and Katie Sackhoff as the lead deputy. The occasional appearances by Gerald McRaney and Peter Weller don't hurt, either.

Lots of people in AVC are hoping it's Life in Hell.

I watched F is for Family. It's good but doesn't have the re-watchability factor for me that BoJack Horseman does. I like how it faithfully extends every cliche of the 70's to such a degree without becoming absurd, and how it touches on the minutiae of family life I haven't seen done before.

I'll second flyonthewall's recommendation of River. Skarsgard is simply fantastic in that role, and it's one helluva twisty detective miniseries. As for Jessica Jones, I think it's very good, but I'm stuck on episode 10 because frankly, Kilgrave fills me with lots more dread than your typical supervillain, to the point where I'm having a hard time continuing to watch.

I made it about three minutes into the Ranch before bailing, which is a personal record. Great cast but no thanks

The idea of a Netflix show with a laugh track is just... why?

I had hopes for this show, but the laugh track killed it for me.

Really? The "jokes" killed it long before the laughter had a chance. I mean, a new series is leading with three or four unfunny and stale lines about Shania Twain? In 2016?

I was just posting that, Ashirg. This is the most anyone has wanted to talk about Shania Twain in one place in a long time.
