Christmas is coming, but before then we have another big event to look forward to. Not Black Friday, though we can all appreciate some money-saving bargains, I'm actually talking about Advent. You know the holiday that nobody except the most devout Christians would know about if it didn't involve cardboard boxes full of cheap chocolate pieces. But, chocolate advent calendars are pretty boring, especially when you're an adult. The chocolate is rubbish, and the pieces are so small you can't really appreciate them one square at a time.

E4 Just Picked Up the TV Rights For Star Trek Discovery

A few years ago it was announced that Netflix and CBS had signed a monster deal that would give the streaming service international streaming rights for Star Trek: Discovery. In other words Netflix users in pretty much every country could see the episode less than 24 hours after they arrived on CBS All Access, and could stream to their heart's content.
