Choosing your favorite Netflix show is like choosing your favorite child - it's almost impossible. Well, that's what you tell Little Tommy anyway, while cuddling up to his sister Emily. But choose we must, as this is the season of the World Cup and what better way to celebrate a tournament about football than using Netflix Originals as a substitute for football teams? Okay, the link is a touch tenuous but we are sticking with it. Below is a list of the best Netflix Original shows and, according to our simulation (scribbled notes on the back of a e-cigarette packet), how they would fare in a World Cup tournament that consists of 32 teams (shows) where there can be only one winner. Before you shout that your number one show isn't even on the list, then just remember that below are shows in the World Cup finals, there was many a qualification game to get here and series such as Making a Murderer and Gypsy made a short, sharp exit.These are the best shows on Netflix, … [Read more...] about The Netflix Originals World Cup: which is the greatest show of them all?

There's something about Jessica Jones, played expertly on Netflix by Krysten Ritter, that makes me want to get up and shout, "Hell yes!" every time I see her grab a misogynistic stranger by the collar and shake him. It might not seem politically correct to say, but I get a strong sense of satisfaction when I see a woman throw a punch after being harassed."Marvel's Jessica Jones" returns to Netflix for season 2 on Thursday, and I've missed the Marvel superhero's hard-drinking, sarcastic, rage-fueled approach. In some ways, she's the very antihero we need in this #MeToo climate of women speaking up and fighting back. Jessica isn't interested in conforming to the kinds of stereotypes a lot of female superheroes are subjected to. She doesn't abide by the usual superhero credo that people come first. She's not polite. She's not there to mother other superheroes, or wear a tight-fitting Lycra costume, or be the love interest to a male superhero. Jessica's a superhero with the sorts … [Read more...] about Why Jessica Jones is the #MeToo Marvel superhero we need
We know there are lots of geeky movies streaming on Netflix. But they come and go because the studios and producers of the films constantly play a game of Netflix hide-and-seek by taking films in and out of streaming circulation. You don't, however, find quite as much gamesmanship with the TV shows. The producers and creators have learned quickly that binge watching—ingesting copious amounts of TV shows all in a row—is now a must thanks to streaming services. Take, for example, a franchise like Star Trek. CBS Television Studios owns the rights to all five of the franchise's TV series: The Original Series, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and Enterprise. Even The Animated Series is streaming. That's hundreds of hours of TV, and they're all streaming right now on Netflix. (Even the new Star Trek coming in 2017 will be on Netflix—if you live outside North America, at least.) As a point of contrast, the Star Trek movies are owned by Paramount Pictures, which … [Read more...] about The Best Geeky TV Shows on Netflix
The Best Alternatives to Cable Streaming services started as an add-on to DVD and digital download offerings with a trickle of second-run movies and TV shows. They were supplements to the programs you watched on their first (and second) runs on cable TV. But speedier internet connections, an abundance of dedicated streaming video devices, and an explosion of mobile video has allowed services like Netflix and Amazon to bulk up their streaming libraries, invest millions in original content, and give traditional pay TV providers a run for their money. These services have grown up from their days as cable TV adjuncts; they're now full-fledged cable replacements for cord cutters. Telecom giants are not blind to the threat; they've tried their own solutions with mixed results, from Comcast's Xfinity Stream TV service and Watchable online TV app to Verizon's go90 and AT&T's DirecTV Now. That said, the media landscape is rapidly changing. AT&T's purchase of Time Warner and all of its … [Read more...] about The Best Video Streaming Services of 2018
