Netflix penis drawing

Update: The controversy must have reached the ears of Netflix executives, because the episode in question has now been removed from the streaming site. Our original article follows.

Last week, Netflix released the first season of American Vandal, an eight-episode documentary parody of true crime stories like The Jinx and Making a Murderer in which the central mystery revolves around someone spray-painting penises on teachers’ cars in the school’s parking lot. But now it looks like Netflix has a real life dick mystery on their hands, because an angry mother has noticed that an artist snuck a drawing of an erect penis into the background of a children’s cartoon that airs on the streaming service.

Jack Ryan TV show teaser

Shows about spies have been a near-constant presence on television since the medium’s early days, and while we’ve seen properties like Get Smart and The Man From U.N.C.L.E. make the jump to the big screen in recent years, Amazon is about to reverse that trend by bringing one of cinema’s biggest spies to TV. The company has just released the first brief teaser for Jack Ryan, based on the Tom Clancy-created character that’s appeared in five movies so far, and you can check it out below. But if you’re looking for your first glimpse at The Office star John Krasinski locked and loaded as the title character, you’ll have to wait just a little while longer.

Now fans of NBC’s comedy series 30 Rock and the CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother can join in their misery as both shows will be removed from Netflix this fall. Read More »

glow season 2

By the time 2017 is over, close to 500 scripted television shows will be out there for the masses to consume. So it’s not too surprising that Netflix – a company which, early in its experimentation with original programming, often renewed its shows for multiple seasons – is starting to outwardly feel the strain of Peak TV.

Their latest casualty? The Naomi Watts series Gypsy, which has officially been canceled. But while Watts’ intimate therapist isn’t coming back to the streaming service after only one season, the gorgeous ladies of wrestling will be stepping back in the ring after their triumphant debut: Netflix has given the go-ahead for GLOW season 2.

Update 2: Reuters reports that Netflix is in active discussions with Disney to keep Marvel and Star Wars movies on the streaming service.

Update: Disney CEO Bob Iger explained in a press call after the announcement that while Disney’s own movies are definitely moving to the new service, the rights of the Star Wars and Marvel films are still being determined.
