Right now, Chelsea Peretti is most known as the always-weird Gina on Fox’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine—but she’s also a skilled stand-up comedian who has a special coming to Netflix in November.
In her hour-long set, Peretti covers a variety of topics ranging from intimidating dogs to fashion crimes: “Do you guys think it’s worse to wear a fedora or kill 15 people?” she asks the audience in the special’s trailer. She also demonstrates the polite way for a woman to eat a banana in public, which turns out to be not very polite at all. READ FULL STORY
Gilmore Girls has finally made its way to Netflix, and while the entire series has only been available for a little over a week, most fans are probably well into their rewatches by now. (Even the Hulk is on season six already.)
As this is the first time the show has been available outside of DVD releases—and ABC Family reruns–there’s been a revival of many of its biggest talking points. Who should Rory have really ended up with? Who’s the best Stars Hollow resident? What episodes need to be watched or skipped while marathoning the show for the 12th time?
There’s not quite as much discussion, however, of the show’s most important dynamic: Lorelai and Rory Gilmore’s relationship. Maybe that’s because Lorelai and Rory’s connection is a given—their ups and downs and pop culture references are the bedrock of nearly every episode. But we should be talking about that unique relationship, because it’s one that makes a parent and child more than family: Gilmore Girls makes them best friends too.
In honor of Gilmore Girls finding its new home on Netflix late last week, EW staffers Molly Smith and Lindsey Bahr have compiled a list of their favorite episodes—one per season. The unfamiliar should use these picks as an entry point; the obsessed can consider this a refresher to rekindle your fervor for the series.
Let’s make one thing clear: There’s no such thing as a “best” Gilmore Girls episode. This is just a little something to make you fall in love, and for many, fall in love again. READ FULL STORY
Redbox’s bid into the world of online streaming, Redbox Instant, will end its services effective Tuesday, Oct. 7. While Redbox’s physical kiosks will remain, the subscription streaming service will no longer be operational, Redbox announced.
Avert your eyes, spoiler-phobes: Netflix, the streaming video service that is arguably the reason we care about spoilers in the first place, now has a special web page dedicated to the very phenomenon it helped create.
As spotted by The Wrap, the site is titled Living With Spoilers, and is broken into three sections, which demand to be discussed in detail. So consider this a spoilerific deep dive into Netflix’s site about Spoilers.
Sharing a Netflix account with a friend—or “borrowing” theirs—and looking for a way to avoid awkward discussions about that season of Gossip Girl you watched five times? Good news: The streaming service will now let you hide your viewing activity.
For those of you that don’t want the world to know about your embarrassing binge-watching habits, Netflix has made discreet entertainment a whole lot easier: The streaming service has changed the way its Internet video subscribers link to their Facebook accounts.
Before, everything that you watched on your queue would be disclosed to any other friends on the social media site that also had the two accounts linked. Starting Tuesday, the new system allows the subscriber to specifically select which videos they would want to recommend and to which of their friends. If you prefer to not let anyone else know how much you’re enjoying that sushi documentary or Friday Night Lights, you can simply turn the sharing feature off. READ FULL STORY
Every once in a while tech companies like Netflix hold what are colloquially known as a Hack Day, or Hackathon. This is when the tech company decides to put most of its day-to-day work on hold in order to set its employees free to collaborate and try wild new ideas, which will hopefully prove useful in making the company’s product better. It’s kind of like penguin mating season, but with more programming.
This week, Netflix just wrapped up its own Hack Day, where over 150 Netflix engineered tinkered and coded their way towards crazy new experiments in making streaming video better. Most interesting of the bunch was Oculix, an Oculus Rift-powered VR Netflix experience that lets you sift through whatever you’re considering binging Minority Report-style.
