A few weeks ago there were reports that Netflix was dumping the 5 Star review system and switching over to a Thumbs Up/Thumbs Down one. Today they made it official and posted this video explainer how it will help you to find more movies that you will want to see on the streaming site.
Granted I think it is pretty self explanatory, but I do love how they say, “It’s kind of like dating apps, actually.” I have to say most of the films I watch on their site remind me of the most the dates I go on from the apps, they both end horribly. But I must be honest, I mostly watch their Horror films and they have the worst of the worst.
What do you think of the new system on Netflix? I am hoping that maybe I can meet up with a guy on a dating app, so I can Netflix & Chill with him and then I can give then both a thumbs up. But then reality will sink in to let me know I will be giving them both a thumbs down.
Last season of Grace and Frankie dealt with Lily Tomlin trying to sell her organic lube for older women. This season the Netflix show is about Jane Fonda and Tomlin trying to find a partner for their vibrators and condoms made for the experienced woman. Therefore, it makes sense that the streaming service would highlight this in their advertising.
There is a Billboard in Hollywood with the two legendary actresses holding vibrators and The Hollywood Reporter says that people are stopping their cars to stare at it. Why, I don’t know. I wouldn’t have known they were holding vibrators if I didn’t binge the whole third season on Sunday. Would you have known? Do you think the ad is that risque?
Now when it comes to Grace and Frankie, if you haven’t seen it, then you need to binge it ASAP! Total fun for people of all ages! And if Netflix reads this, I want samples from this season!!!
Today on The View, the show welcomed Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin on to talk about their Netflix show Grace and Frankie. The season the two women are getting into the vibrator business and that put the ABC talk show into a conundrum. The V word is one of the words you cannot say on their program.
Yes, Vibrator is a dirty word. Who knew? Maybe if more Republicans could say it, they would not be so eager to cut off women’s health. They have no problem saying Viagra and that is still funded by them and allowed to be said on daytime televion. Especially, since I am assuming almost almost all of them need it.
But this is not a political post, per se. Therefore, I just have one thing to say, “Vibrator, vibrator, vibrator!!!”
When it comes to Grace and Frankie, if Netflix was smart, they would totally sell that vibrator and those condoms. I don’t know about you, but after binge watching the show yesterday, I want both! Especially the vibrator! They made it sound like it really gets the job done.
If you have not seen Grace and Frankie, then spend your time binge watching it. The acting and the writing on this show is phenomenal. It is also proves that older actors are better than most of the younger ones because they do stuff that those whipper snappers cannot. How did Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston not get nominated for their roles as Fonda and Tomlin’s ex-husband’s who left them to become not Mr & Mr? Plus, Fonda and Tomlin also deserve nominations. In other words, I really love Grace and Frankie.
Back in 1980, we fell in love with the pairing on Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda, then 35 years later we fell in love with them together again in Grace and Frankie.
On March 24th, the two ladies are back to work on the third season of their Netflix show and I am so excited for it. Not as excited as if I got one of their vibrators, but pretty close. They remind us that women of all ages can be hysterical and talk about anything and everything…and I do mean everything. Plus, they get themselves into hilarious situations that women younger than them can’t even foresee.
It is like our generation’s The Golden Girls. Although Golden Girls is for all generations, but you got where I was going with that thought.
The only thing that would make the third season more charming is if they had Dolly Parton join in on the fun with them. Could you imagine? I would be even more excited than if I just finished using one of their vibrators!
When you think of singers who sing music for lovers, you think of Michael Bolton. That’s exactly what Netflix thought when they gave him a Big, Sexy Valentine’s Day Special this year for all those couple to Netflix & Chill with.
If you don’t have someone to Netflix & Drill with, then don’t Netflix & Pill or Netflix & Kill. You need to Netflix & Will them into your life and it will be all Netflix & Thrill. And your Netflix & Bill will be worth it.
