Netflix’s The I-Land Trailer Conjures Up the Scariest Thing of All… the Fyre Festival?

Netflix has released the first glimpse at The I-Land with a teaser clearly designed to rip on the announcement trailer for the failed Fyre Festival – even though the limited series doesn’t look to be about that at all. Either way, something tells me this island getaway has bigger problems than disaster relief tents and bologna sandwiches. Read More >>

Everything You Need to Know Before Watching The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance

Another world, another time, in the age of wonder. The Dark Crystal finally returns with a prequel series, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. The Jim Henson Company has been cautious about expanding the lore of ‘80s classic The Dark Crystal, only authorising a couple of books, some graphic novels, and a cancelled manga. But those few pieces, along with the film, tell a deep and complex saga. Read More >>

The Age of Media Corporation Mega-Mergers is Robbing Us of Bolder, Fresher Storytelling

Disney isn’t just the first studio to have five pictures cross a billion dollars at the box office in a single year and it isn’t just the biggest film studio right now. It’s the biggest film studio in the history of Hollywood. While investors are likely very pleased with this fact, the company’s series of monster mergers has set off a chain effect with other studios doing their own monster mergers in an effort to keep up.

Wu Assassins Certainly Feels Like What Iron Fist Could Have Been

A quick glance and you’ll notice a lot of similarities between the new Netflix Original, Wu Assassins, and old Netflix Original, Iron Fist. Both are goofy shows about chosen ones out to stop bad guys with their fists. Both are about men facing a turning point in their personal lives. Both are set in coastal American cities. Both include a brother/sister duo who love the protagonist but might be toxic for them. Both feature Lewis Tan being very charming. But in Wu Assassins, everyone can actually fight. Read More >>

One Showrunner Actually Figured Out How to Hack Netflix’s Algorithm

When you log into Netflix one of the first things you see is a list of recommended shows. Sometimes its new episodes of shows you’ve liked and rated well. Often, it’s a whole myriad of shows you’ve never heard of or are only tangentially aware of. And if you’re like me one of those shows that Netflix repeatedly suggests you watch is Anders Tangen’s Norsemen, a silly little sitcom revolving around ancient Vikings with seemingly modern problems. There’s a reason Netflix suggests Norsemen even when there’s a new season of Derry Girls or She-Ra you’d like to be watching. Tangen figured out how to take advantage of Netflix’s recommendation algorithm. Read More >>

One of Stranger Things’ Best Ideas Came Late in the Game

There were a lot of new team-ups in the third season of Netflix’s Stranger Things, but the coolest one (literally) had to be between Steve (Joe Keery) and his badass Russian-translating coworker Robin (Maya Hawke). Their relationship seemed to be going in a certain direction as Steve developed feelings for his new best friend, only for it to evolve into something else. It turns out, that evolution is largely thanks to the actors themselves. Read More >>
