"...Mississippi rolls forward, HGTV rolls Flip It Forward back, and syphilis crashes on the breakers, as your AggreGAYtor prepares for new Netflix episodes...."
"...Effing with trans inmates’ hormone treatments is more than a Netflix plot device...."
"...Now that there's Netflix, Hulu, DVDs, Blu-rays, we can pretend we're not sitting in the dark, but our living rooms and bedrooms are as dark as anywhere, and, in those rare moments when we're honest, we know it. In our bedroom or living room – those intimate spaces where we make and/or ruin our lives – we watch the screen and expose ourselves to the profound notion of our flexible identity..."
"...Kerman will speak about "the real story" of her year in a women's federal penitentiary for a drug trafficking crime she had committed 10 years earlier. Her Orange memoir has since been adapted into a Netflix series that's due to begin its second season in June...."
"...So when we did our first big, big tour, it was like 11 years after we started the show, and our audience was young and way bigger than ever. Now because of repeats or YouTube or Netflix or whatever, the audience stays the same age..."
"..."Each year we strive to surpass [the] previous year's expectations in terms of showcasing programming from fan-favorite and premiere series," they said in a press release. "This year we are excited to add new networks like SundanceTV and BBC America, as well as continuing our partnership with Netflix, to appeal to a wide variety of audiences."..."
"...After a while, forcing yourself to go out because it’s a holiday is kind of tiresome, even if rice balls are involved. (This coming from the woman whose yearly Halloween tradition is eating a McRib and watching The Thing.) I'm not one to be upset about being single on Valentine’s Day, but I will take any excuse to order some fantastic Chicken Tikka Masala from New India and sit in bed with Netflix..."
"...Taking a break from his day job of transfixing music hall audiences with renditions of "Ta-ra-ra Boom-de-ay", he re-enacts the final fugitive hours of Hyde for an audio recording. See, kids, this is what being a horror fan was like before Netflix...."
"...Prep: Rincon says the best preparation is watching a lot of Netflix to connect with the pop culture references. "The kind of questions they ask, they're rarely something you learned in social studies class..."
"...Mindy Kaling, the actress and showrunner behind Fox hit The Mindy Project will speak Sunday, March 9, with Marie Claire Editor-in-Chief Anne Fulenwider about "the competitive landscape brought on [by] the emergence of digital players like Netflix, Amazon and Hulu, evolving audience expectations and the opportunity for women in television to leverage these changes," according to a South by Southwest press release. Kaling got her start in the industry as The Office's Kelly Kapoor...."
"...Judge for yourself though! There have been several reissues and releases in recent years, and if you haven’t seen the film in a while, it bears revisiting. A brand new 20th anniversary Blu-ray recently hit the market, and you can also stream the film in its entirety through sites like DirectTV and Netflix...."
"...Is your Xbox One hooked up yet? Can you find your Wiimote? What's the damn password to your (let's be honest) shared Netflix account again? Why is that movie only showing at the cineplex the furthest from your house?..."
"...The Golden Globe Awards announced its nominees today, and my eyes are fixed on the Best Original Song category. It’s a narrowed-lens look into the year in films, and for someone whose idea of a night at the movies usually means Netflix on the couch, it’s a glimpse outside of my cinematic bunker...."
"...Under the banner of ShineBox SMC, Michener Center for Writers alumni Brian McGreevy and Lee Shipman are taking on the work of one of their brethren – Philipp Meyer's The Son – for a limited series adaptation. Meanwhile, Hemlock Grove is filming its second season for Netflix, and Shinebox got the rights to Michener alumna Domenica Ruta's memoir as well...."
"...In between ABC's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the upcoming multiple Defenders miniseries for NetFlix, there's a lot of talk these days about Marvel on the small screen, but Marvel Animation has been crushing it on cable and DVD for years..."
"...• The Dish Network announced today that they will be closing their remaining 300 Blockbuster stores, including three in the Austin area. That's sad news for movie lovers who will now have to resort to Hulu, Netflix, Amazon, iTunes, HBO Go, YouTube, illegal downloading sites, or Redbox to rewatch Biodome..."
"...Just let’s skip Ender’s Game already. Is Hocus Pocus on Netflix?..."
"...The production value is high, the script is more complex, and the crew featured a mix of Hagins' friends and professional Austin film talent who signed on for the project. The film premiered at South by Southwest in 2011, and it lives on in the vast streaming catalog of Netflix Instant..."
"...• Last DH note, we swear: Five recent Drafthouse Films releases are now available for streaming on Netflix Instant: A Band Called Death, Graceland, Pietà, Wake in Fright, and Wrong. Ladies and gentlemen, start your queues...."
"...Nonetheless, A Few Good Men remains a brilliant – and relevant – script, one of a handful of contemporary pieces to claim a place in the canon. It's always valuable to recognize just how timely it remains, and that's more effective in a live performance than in re-watching a two-decades-old film on Netflix..."
"...Before divorce, there's just decay: cold stares, silent dinners, Netflix evenings. Overseas – the debut collaboration between Austin's Will Johnson (Centro-matic/South San Gabriel), David Bazan (Pedro the Lion/Headphones), and the Kadane brothers (Bedhead/the New Year) – isn't an explicit concept album about the stages of separation, but it doesn't stray far from the subject, either..."
"...1) Arrested Development (premiered May 26): Grab yourself a frozen banana and more specifically the "GOB" at Bananarchy before binge watching the whole fourth season on Netflix. The Bananarchy site boasts "a celebration of everything revolutionary, irreverent, Arrested Development-al, and excessive..."

"...House of Cards (Sony) The Netflix original that was actually a remake...."
"...That's a change the ATX pair are trying to reflect in their programming. (See "Pilot Light.") McFarland said, "Our favorite thing is when someone says to us, 'Well, I don't watch TV, but I just watched the entire series of The Sopranos on Netflix.' They don't quite understand that is watching TV..."
"...If you've been spending any time on Netflix recently (and we can imagine you have), you might've seen ads around with this pup's mug advertising for a series called Wilfred starring Elijah Wood; that reboot's second season premieres June 20. But today, you can own the original Australian tails … er, tales … on DVD (Shout! Factory, 4-disc set, $29.93)...."
"...Carvey’s been insightful, and devastatingly hilarious, in the past – his 1995 HBO special is proof of that – but that sort of enthusiasm for the artform wasn’t on display at the Paramount. Instead, he simple delivered old jokes, old impressions, and old characters in a way that catered fairly directly to the audiences who’d binged on early Nineties Saturday Night Live episodes on Netflix, recalled the Church Lady fondly, and still can’t think of the first President Bush without hearing the words “wouldn’t be prudent” in their heads..."
"...Fiber TV boasts all of the standard favorite channels – from C-SPAN and Cartoon Network to the Longhorn Network and Lifetime. (That said, it's a little light on the premium channels: no AMC, no HBO, no Sundance, no IFC – at least, not yet.) It also includes integration with DVR, video on demand, and online streaming services such as Netflix...."
"...But the long-awaited fourth season of the cult favorite comedy starring Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, and co. returns to small screens thanks to Netflix on May 26..."
"...That model has vanished. I think what you're asking is: Does that create, then, a certain sense of these movies coming and going as quickly as the razor in my shower? [Consider] the difference between seeing a movie at the repertory theatre where I went to college, the student union, and streaming a movie on Netflix or iTunes..."
"...You've got what they're wearing, you know what they're drinking, but what you might've missed is what everyone on the show is reading. While you're busy rewatching the first five seasons on Netflix in preparation for the big premiere, keep an eye out for some of the books the characters have tucked in their offices, on their night stands, and, yes, in their hands at the bar...."
"...What in god’s name am I talking about? Watch the show. Season one is dangling from the vine on Netflix...."
"...“I really do. But the more interesting thing for me is that regardless of the genre, or how many cameras you use, if it’s a single-camera comedy or if it’s a four-camera comedy, if it’s on Netflix or CBS – you’re telling a story..."
"...The only problem for broadcasters is that they are never in control: Like Nielsen ratings, that's up to the audience. While Netflix used its own Twitter feed to promote its original political drama House of Cards, Deering Davis said, "The reason I decided to actually watch was because it felt like everyone I follow on Twitter watched it and loved it..."
"...Which brings us to Robin Wright, who co-stars on the Netflix exclusive series House of Cards as Claire Underwood, the icy, origami-crane-folding, nonprofit head moonlighting as Lady Macbeth. The series, a political drama co-starring Kevin Spacey as a scheming Southern Democrat bent on seeking revenge on those who passed him over for Secretary of State, represents a new frontier for television..."
"...I had a lot of access to the stories of people who were brave enough to share their lives. I watched a lot of movies I probably would never have otherwise seen, even streaming on Netflix, which is where I get my stuff these days..."
"...• Thank goodness that Republican congressmen have no complaint about raising the debt ceiling. I would hate for all those lawyers who are defending DOMA to have to give up Netflix...."
"...Robin Wright: Forever in many hearts Princess Buttercup from The Princess Bride, the SAG and Golden Globe-nominated Dallas native has had a busy couple of years recently, with roles in the David Fincher version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, The Conspirator and Rampart, plus a return to the Fincher fold in the eagerly anticipated Netflix adaptation of British political drama House of Cards...."
"...Yesterday the Internet saw the debut of the first trailer for Hemlock Grove, the new miniseries from Michener Center for Writers alums (and Film Flam pallies) Brian McGreevy and Lee Shipman. The Netflix-original series, which debuts in April, is based on McGreevy’s 2011 novel Hemlock Grove; the Chronicle spoke with McGreevy about the book and miniseries back in April of 2012...."
"...That’s probably a good thing because all the un-mined potential of human existence – both in ourselves and in the world around us – can be quite a burden. Imagine waking up every morning feeling like you should seize the day – instead of say, lounging around in your sweat pants doing bong hits and watching Workaholics episodes on Netflix..."
"...Seriously, next time the hard right wants Grandpa LaPierre venting on their behalf, get him a Netflix subscription or sign him up for GameFly. Something..."
"...Sure, you could just rely on Amazon or Netflix to crunch some numbers and cough up recommendations for you, but wouldn't you prefer the human touch? Local author Scott Von Doviak goes old-school by breaking down discrete elements of The Terminator – tech noir, evil cyborgs, time travel – and suggesting related further viewing, from Robot Holocaust to La Jetée...."
"...Anything you want the physical copies of are delivered to your doorstep like a package. They say that Netflix DVDs and packages will be "wrapped up securely" (whatever that means) and put directly on your doorstep or left at the office of your apartment complex..."
"...Or, let me. Having just watched the last screener for the seventh annual Austin Polish Film Festival (my second festival preview on these pages), I'm a fan; I now actually troll Netflix for Polskie films – in between festivals..."
"...So as many have done with their Netflix subscriptions and a weekend, I binged: a double feature of North by Northwest and Rear Window, two of the auteur’s most storied works. The process incurred a small, personal miracle: I did not become restless..."

"...Now available on Netflix streaming is the Kickstarter funded and film festival buzzed Indie Game: The Movie (Blinkworks). If you can make a documentary about independent game developers emotionally engaging to the nongaming world you’ve obviously done something very right...."
"...A lot of companies in town – in every town, I imagine – do settle for that. And they keep re-heating the same old chestnuts, doing plays that you can usually see a better cinematic version of on Netflix, and it's … it's fucking boring, isn't it?..."
"..."Let's just talk business," she said, and forget about politics and abortion. If she were the head of Blockbuster, she said, and Netflix arrived on the scene, the question would be, "how do we make our business model sustainable?"..."
"...But perhaps in response to Netflix readying the launch of its own original series (and Arrested Development's second coming), some famous people and ambitious platforms have thrown real money at producing for the web. We've rounded up some notable efforts...."
