As a self-appointed reviewer of Netflix's filmic output, I have watched and reviewed a lot of the films on the streaming service. I have tended to review films that have either been released this year or in 2018 and maybe a few from a couple of year previous. Not that there are no films before that period that interest me, it is just that, generally, older films have already been extensively reviewed.
Being a fan of Netflix’s overnight hit Stranger Things, it pains me to have such a strong negative opinion of the highly anticipated third season to feel the need to write this out, merely a month after it hit the streaming site. I stumbled upon the first season back in 2016 and like everyone else was captivated by the 80s nostalgia, likable (and not-so-likable) characters, creepy plot, and fantastic visuals. But somehow the qualities that drew me into the first season, and subsequently, the second, made me absolutely hate the third season. Here’s why season three was absolute garbage:
6 Underground is an 'exciting' new movie that is coming to Netflix by the end of 2019 starring Ryan Reynolds! When I say it's 'exciting', I mean that is its genre! AS of right now, the only tag that Netflix has made for its new Original movie is the word “exciting.” With that said, it's safe to say that 6 Underground is going to be an action thriller.
I'm sure you have heard the bad news... both Friends and The Office will be leaving Netflix some time in the next couple of years. However, Netflix doesn't want to leave their streaming site without a classic sitcom. In order to fill the gap, Netflix has entered what turned out to be an epic and entertaining bidding war for Seinfeld, which is scheduled to leave Hulu in 2021.
When it comes to original TV shows, Netflix is one of the pros at producing them. One of its more popular series is Orange is the New Black. The show initially revolved around Piper Chapman, who is sentenced to 15 months in Litchfield Penitentiary, a women’s federal prison. As the series progresses, we still follow Piper’s story, but we also get a look into the other inmates' lives.
I was a bit confused to why this is being referred to as 'Part 2' instead of season two... well, it turns out that the first season isn't quite done yet. The new episodes of Disenchantment that are coming out this September are actually the second half of the first season. Confusing... right?
