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.

The 15 Best ‘American Horror Story’ Characters

best american horror story characters

American Horror Story: Cult is currently underway, and the season is a remarkable return to form for the anthology series, which is semi-infamous for its great but occasionally hollow concepts. Still, even when the show flounders in plot, it’s an always-great showcase for actors looking to sink their teeth into meaty roles. Cult sees the return of AHS veterans like Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters, who are turning in career-best performances as the trauma and phobia-afflicted Ally Mayfair-Richards and the maniacal Kai Anderson.

To celebrate Cult’s excellent first streak of episodes, we’re looking back at the memorable characters of seasons past. Here are 15 American Horror Story characters who left a cutting impression on the fabric of the show, and who – given its interconnected nature – might just pop up again in the future.

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.

(We’re going to kickstart our discussion of HBO’s The Deuce by answering one simple question: what is the “best bet” in this week’s episode?)

There’s a curious kind of romanticism attached to 1970s New York City. The Deuce, created by David Simon and George Pelecanos, delves straight into it, setting a tone that’s just as delightfully pulpy, and introducing a cast of pimps, sex workers, gangsters, and cops (including twins played by James Franco) that rivals Game of Thrones in sheer scope. In its first two episodes, we get a glimpse of each of their lives, as well as the first inklings of where the whole enterprise is headed.
