How Austin's homegrown video stores are faring against the big red giant
Screens Story  January 16, 2009, by Marc Savlov
"...Part of this nationwide trend can be attributed to the unstoppable rise of Netflix, the Los Gatos, Calif.-based DVD subscription service founded by Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph.

Beau Willimon Lays His 'Cards' on the Table
Austin Film Festival presents the showrunner on season two of the hit Netflix series
Screens Story  February 21, 2014, by Aleksander Chan
"...When Beau Willimon's adaptation of the Nineties BBC drama of the same name (which was based on the series of novels by Michael Dobbs) premiered last year with its David Fincher mood lighting, featuring marquee names, and on its exotic-by-comparison network, Netflix, it was dogged by comparisons to Mad Men or The Sopranos as a prestige drama of the streaming video age. That lumping together of Willimon's series with those shows wasn't so much a critical misfire as an honest mistake: In many ways, House of Cards passes the Prestige Drama Sniff Test, but when you consume the show as intended (ahem, "binge"), what you realize you're smelling is pure, unfermented cheese..."

Music Story  September 22, 2016, by Kahron Spearman
"...At the time of the Chronicle's recent cover story on the hardwired homegrown scene (revisit "Electricians," July 1), only those specifically interested in old-school analog electronics – behemoth machines decades removed from the new millennium – had any inkling of the activity teeming in Austin's subterranean scenes. Two weeks later, viral horror/science-fiction Netflix serial Stranger Things permanently altered the trajectory of Survive when two of its members charted on the Billboard 200 with the show's soundtrack...."
