black mirror season 4

When we were assembling our list of favorite moments of 2016, it was decided late in the process to exclude television and focus solely on movies. The decision was made to keep the list manageable, but it also meant we didn’t get a chance to pay tribute to the third season of the science fiction anthology series Black Mirror, which contains my absolute favorite piece of pop culture anything to come out of last year: the episode “San Junipero.” While the season had its ups and down, those highs were remarkably, deliciously high. Nothing abuses my soul quite like the pitch-black world of Black Mirror and it always leaves me begging for more.

So it’s only natural that director John Hillcoat, a man whose filmography is built entirely on movies where nasty and awful things happen to just about everyone unfortunate enough to enter the frame, has reportedly signed on to direct an episode of the upcoming fourth season. He’ll fit right in.

Sandy Wexler Trailer

Continuing his feature film deal with Netflix, this spring brings another comedy from Adam Sandler, and this time he’s taking us all the way back to 1994.

Sandy Wexler follows Adam Sandler as a goober of a talent agent, complete with one of those silly voices that he loves to have in his movies. While Sandy has a unique array of talents that he represents, his newest client Courtney Clarke (Jennifer Hudson) may not only prove to be his most successful, but he also happens to fall in love with her. If that doesn’t sound appealing, just tune in for a bunch of cameos from Sandler’s famous friends.

feud trailer

Before Mickey (Gillian Jacobs) and Gus (Paul Rust) return for season two of Love, Netflix decided to share the good news: they’ve already renewed the Judd Apatow-produced series for a third season. We’re already guaranteed more time with these charming but flawed characters.

But before we see the current state of their relationship, another show — an entirely different show — premieres on FX. That series is called Feud: Bette and Joan, which you can watch a new trailer for.

Below, watch a full Love season two preview and the Feud: Bette and Joan trailer.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season 3

Netflix announced a whole bunch of upcoming release dates last week, but leave it to Titus Andromedon to be fashionably late. On the bright side, this means he gets to capitalize on the renewed buzz surrounding Beyoncé’s Lemonade following her showstopping performance at the Grammys last night — because, naturally, the first Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season 3 teaser has him doing his very best knockoff rendition of “Hold Up.”

Watch the first official Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season 3 teaser, which also reveals the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season 3 premiere date, below.  Read More »

Stranger Things Season 2 - Dustin, Mike, Lucas, Will

We’ve written before about how much fun it was to discover Stranger Things last year when it arrived on Netflix with limited fanfare and became a phenomenon overnight. But like a newly minted movie star who suddenly himself hounded by fans in the streets he could once walk through unnoticed, the throwback science fiction series now has to deal with all of the problems that come with fame. Especially, all of the people who want to get up in its business. More specifically, all of the people who wouldn’t mind learning a thing or two about the new season’s plot in advance of its October arrival date.

Thankfully, the Stranger Things crew could turn to Game of Thrones, a veteran member of the Popular Television Show Club, for tips on how to keep its secret safe.

Stranger Things Season 2 - Dustin, Mike, Lucas, Will
