Netflix bug

It’s a favorite complaint of cinephiles that there just don’t seem to be any original ideas left in Hollywood anymore. But Netflix, it seems, has plenty to spare. Or at least a bug within the service’s works does.

A glitch has led the system to combine synopses of completely separate movies, leading to delightfully bizarre mash-up summaries like “A reprogrammed Terminator arrives from the future to protect young John Connor from a relentless shape-shifting cyborg gumball machine.” How’s that for an unexpected plot twist? Read some of the bug’s greatest hits after the jump.

Wet Hot American Summer TV show

For years, director David Wain and many of the actors involved in his film Wet Hot American Summer have talked about a sequel. The original film, which featured an incredible roster of then-up and coming talent as counselors at summer camp, even ends with a joke that sets up a sequel, in which the counselors would reunite years after the end of the film. Several original cast members, however, such as Bradley Cooper and Elizabeth Banks, now command more money per film than the entire budget of Wet Hot American Summer, and Universal has been totally disinterested in financing another film. But what about a Wet Hot American Summer TV show?

Now there is talk of a TV show on Netflix. It would not be a sequel, but a ten-episode version of the prequel story that the creators have discussed on occasion over the last couple years.  Read More »

Orange Is the New Black third season

The second season of Orange Is the New Black doesn’t begin until June 6, but Netflix has already committed to a third season. Just as the second season was announced before the first even ran, Netflix is showing great confidence in the show by setting up a third set of 13 episodes.

Taylor Schilling will return as Piper Kerman, in the continuing dramatization of Kerman’s memoir recounting her time in prison. While Laura Prepon has a small role in the second season, she should be back as a regular cast member for the third season. Beyond that, we’ll have to get through the upcoming second season to see who else will be back, and what new characters might be expected for the third outing.   Read More »

daredevil netflix

As other film studios race to catch up to Marvel, Marvel is moving ahead. One of their most exciting announcements last year was the fact they’d be bringing four TV shows direct to Netflix, culminating in a fifth team-up series. The first of those will be the New York-set Daredevil, run and written by Drew Goddard. For the most part, details on the series have been sketchy, but Marvel Entertainment’s Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada recently cleared up a few things about the show.

First, as expected, all the shows will exist in the same universe as all the films and other TV shows. He also suggested the shows would all arrive on Netflix all at once, instead of following a more staggered release pattern. Below, read Quesada’s quotes about the Daredevil Netflix series.

HBO Shows Coming to Amazon Prime

HBO Amazon Prime

Standalone HBO Go subscriptions still aren’t a thing, but an Amazon Prime account could turn out to be the next best thing. Amazon announced this week that it had struck a multi-year deal to add several of HBO’s shows to the Amazon Prime catalog, including The Sopranos, The Wire, and Deadwood.

Don’t go throwing away your sister’s boyfriend’s roommate’s HBO Go password just yet, though. Current seasons of ongoing series won’t be available for another few years, and megahit Game of Thrones isn’t part of the agreement at all. Hit the jump for more details.
