netflix

Netflix has been having fun creating little side projects (like an actual Netflix and Chill button and Stranger Things recipes) to promote their original programming. Their latest is a free online game that allows you to take control of characters from their popular shows. Well, popular shows and Marco Polo, which was recently cancelled. A bit odd, that.

The game is an extremely simple infinite runner that will have you dodging Demogorons, DEA agents and lunch trays. It’s pretty stupid honestly, but if you’re looking to waste a few minutes of your day, have at it here.

Have you been enjoying Black Mirror on Netflix? If so, you will undoubtedly enjoy these illustrations by artist Butcher Billy as well. They imagine popular episodes as retro comic book covers.

Yes, even THAT episode.

The Mythbusters build team is back with a new show on Netflix called White Rabbit Project. When it was first announced, the show was described as “Mythbusters in Wonderland”. The caption on the trailer elaborates:

The coolest tech. The weirdest weapons. The craziest escapes. Three science-loving sleuths put them under the microscope.

Kari Byron, Tory Belleci and Grant Imahara rank history’s greatest inventions, heists and more in this series from the producers of “MythBusters.”

There’s no doubt there’s more happening with Star Wars now than at any time in history, and fans can’t seem to get enough.

There are all kinds of stories out there of course, but one thing fans have hoped for, and almost saw come to fruition six years ago, is a live-action television series. ABC has mentioned talking with Disney and Lucasfilm off and on, but more than a few fans have expressed their preference for a series on Netflix—for obvious reasons.

To that end, over 50,000 people have signed a Change.org petition asking Disney and Lucasfilm to make a live-action series based on Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and the characters from both KOTOR and KOTOR II plus the MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Personally, I’m intrigued by the idea as I love the games and currently play SWTOR. I mean, it’s hard not to watch the most recent SWTOR trailer for the new expansion and not see a story worth telling. Check that out below. [click to continue…]

If you were a fan of Mythbusters, you will certainly have noticed that the final season of the show was produced without the involvement of the build team, Grant Imahara, Tory Belleci, and Kari Byron. However, it was recently revealed that the trio will be reuniting for a new show on Netflix that will debut later this year.

Work on the production, dubbed White Rabbit Project, began in May and will cover “topics as diverse as jailbreaks, superpower technology, heists and crazy world war two weapons”. Mythbusters producer Beyond Productions will once again be at the helm, and although it is not a direct spinoff, it has been described as “Mythbusters in Wonderland”.

White Rabbit Project is currently slated to debut on December 9. Check out pics from the set below. [click to continue…]

Never doubt the internet’s ability to come up with a theory that you’d never consider until someone considers it, at which point, it’s like it was there all the time.

In Game Of Thrones, it was R+L=J. This time, it’s Stranger Things and the idea that Parks & Recreation‘s Jean-Ralphio Saperstein is the son of Steve Harrington from Stranger Things.

If you’re a fan of the show, you’re probably aware of the theory at this point. In fact, it’s gained so much traction that Jean-Ralphio himself (Ben Schwartz) shared his thoughts on the subject. As you’ll see in the video below, he’s pretty sure J-R ran the Upside Down. Just roll with it. [click to continue…]

If you haven’t watched Stranger Things on Netflix, you need to remedy that immediately. This is especially true if you were around during the ’80s, which was arguably the most enjoyable decade in movie history. The show is steeped in Steven Spielberg-style nostalgia, but this adorable flipbook animation by artist Ben Zurawski might be a little on the nose. Watch it below. [click to continue…]
