Can you peep why Netflix pulled this cartoon?
September 21st, 2017 under Celeb Oops, Netflix. [ Comments: none ]

Remember all the controversy over a hidden penis in The Little Mermaid poster? Well looks like that artist got another job, but this time on Netflix’s Maya the Bee. A mom noticed something strange on the screen when she was watching Episode 35 of the cartoon with her kids. That strange thing was a drawing of a penis. Outraged by what she saw, she took to social media to complain, and according to Variety the streaming service pulled the episode. So no more dicks for you and me.

When it comes to the drawing, I never know how people see those things on their own. I have a dirty mind and even I cannot find those hidden royal jewels or should I say gems until someone points it out. Can you?


Lady Gaga’s documentary gets a Netflix release date!
August 24th, 2017 under Lady Gaga, Netflix. [ Comments: 4 ]

Lady Gaga might only be Five Foot Two in stature, but her career is a giant. What goes on in her life when she is not in front of her Little Monsters? All will be revealed on September 22nd when her documentary is globally released on Netflix.

The streaming service described it as, “Emmy-nominated filmmaker Chris Moukarbel (Banksy Does New York) pulls back the curtain to introduce the woman behind the performer, the costumes, the glitz and the glamour. Off-stage, in the studio, unplugged and at home, audiences get an unguarded glimpse at Gaga through a series of personal highs and lows and the culmination of a year’s emotional journey. From struggles with relationships to health issues, from finding solace in her inner circle to conquering her insecurities, Gaga: Five Foot Two navigates the divide between life as a superstar and life as an everyday woman.”

You can tell that there is so much more to Mama Monster than meets the eyes, so my eyes are looking forward to seeing what she is like behind the scenes.


Could The Meyerowitz Stories be the least funny comedy movie ever?
August 15th, 2017 under Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, Dustin Hoffman, Netflix. [ Comments: none ]

Adam Sandler and Ben Stiller comedies are either hit or miss, but for the most part miss. So what happens if you pair the two of them up for a dramedy? Either a movie of theirs that is laugh out loud funny or one so awful people will leave the theaters crying in pain. Soon we will find out the answer to this question when their Netflix movie The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), which also stars Dustin Hoffman, comes out on Friday the 13th. I think the release date says it all. Don’t you agree? Granted after watching that teaser you know it is going to be their worst films to date and that says a lot after Zoolander 2 and Jack & Jill. Should I go on?


Oh the scandal, Shonda Rhimes leaves ABC for Netflix
August 14th, 2017 under Netflix, Shonda Rhimes. [ Comments: none ]

ABC made Shonda Rhimes the uber TV producer that she is now, and now they need her more than she needs them. Sadly, they will not have her for much longer because she has left them for a multi-year deal to produce new series and other projects for Netflix. Her shows Grey’s Anatomy, How to Get Away with Murder, Scandal (which is ending this season) and the upcoming For the People will continue to air on the alphabet network, all of her new shows will air on Netflix.

This a big hit for ABC, who is having a huge problems in the drama department. Only the Shondaland dramas are doing well for them. What will they do without her? Luckily, they have The Good Doctor, but the rest of their new shows are painfully bad. The Inhumans is the worst pilot of the Fall and Once Upon a Time and Agents of SHIELD needed to end seasons ago. In other words, they are in deep doo doo.

When it comes to Netflix, this is a big get for them since they just lost Rhimes’ former bosses aka Disney. They needed something that would fill that hole and this is a good start.

Poor ABC, they just cannot catch a break these days. And American Idol has not even debuted.


Disney to Netflix, let it go
August 9th, 2017 under Netflix. [ Comments: none ]

Before Netflix started winning a whole bunch of awards for its original programming, they used to stream some of today’s biggest movies. Then they lost their partnership with Epix and those films went away. Luckily they signed a deal with Disney and that company’s movies and TV shows started to stream. But that will be going away in 2019 because Disney is launching their own streaming service for their home videos along with one for ESPN according to The Hollywood Reporter.

If I were Netflix, I would start begging every studio to Netflix & Chill because without one I see their numbers rapidly declining. I mean, I love cheesy Horror movies and I am struggling to find ones to watch. I hate to say it, but I am OK with losing their shows and gaining ones on Hulu or Amazon Prime. I want variety and without Disney, they are not offering enough of it.

Will you let Netflix go when Disney does?
