Premiering November 20th, Jessica Jones, Marvel's next Netflix series will continue to introduce the 'street-level' heroes of Hell's Kitchen, New York. This hero isn't as recognizable as her counterparts. As part of MAX (Marvel's first unrated comic line) Alias featured Jessica Jones' downward spiral after a serious trauma forced her to hang up her cape and become a private investigator, but the series only ran for 28 issues between 2001 and 2004.

Now, in order to help audiences catch up with the lesser known hero, Marvel got the original creators (Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos) to create a free 12-page issue connecting Jessica Jones to the over-arching MCU.

There's even a special Daredevil cameo. You can get a Digital Copy at Comixology. You should do it now! It's free!

Dr. Adrienne K., owner of the Native Appropriations blog, just wanted to watch a movie, and it led to Netflix changing the description for Pocahontas.

While scrolling through Netflix, she came upon the 1995 Disney film and immediately found the description sexist and disrespectful of native peoples.

Here's the original description:



Dr. Adrienne took to Twitter for a short appeal:





And then wrote a longer one on her blog.

...[T]hese movies all have well developed romance plot lines, but their (white, male) protagonists get to save things, fight people, have adventures, and be 'lord of the jungle'–they are not defined by their romantic relationships in the film.


Br> After the post and the the sizable Internet agreement, Netflix actually responded directly to Dr. Adrienne and admitted fault.



The new description tells a decidedly different story.

15 Examples of What it Means to 'Netflix and Chill'

Netflix and chill? We all know what that means... ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

It's time to sit back, relax and binge watch Breaking Bad! Because there is no reason to call someone over at 2am besides to sit and watch a show that you've seen at least 5 times through, right? Nah we aren't fooling anyone, though it would be nice to think that humanity is wholesome enough to come up with an idea like this for couple's to have time to lay back and watch a good rom-com. 

Netflix has spawned an entire subculture  that has been hitherto unseen since the times of "Blockbuster and bang" (I made that up). What could be better than escaping for countless hours into the realm of film and television with a romp in the sheets about ~3 minutes in.

It's been a terribly long wait, but as of tomorrow, July 16, we will find ourselves finally back in Camp Firewood.

Our kind overlords at Netfilx will open up the camp gates to Wet Hot American Summer and we're sure to binge all of it as soon as we can. 

In the meantime, we can just watch this video on repeat.

You may remember a couple weeks ago when Jon Bernthal was officially announced as The Punisher for Netflix's Daredevil, season 2. Now, another classic Marvel hero, Elektra appears to be joining the crew in Hell's Kitchen as well.

Played by Élodie Yung, Elektra is a trained assassin and former college girlfriend of Matt Murdock. She's also a long running romantic interest for the blind vigilante.

Over the weekend, Eleanora Poe uploaded this trailer, which is clearly meant to be a teaser for Netflix's upcoming Series of Unfortunate Events show. 

It ran through the Internet due to it's spot-on atmosphere and intriguing hints at that titular series of events seen as unfortunate.

However, Entertainment Weekly found out from Netflix that the trailer was not made by the streaming giant.

So we're left with conflicting emotions here. On the one hand, this is a strikingly good fan-made trailer that really encapsulates the feel that made Lemony Snicket's books (and the movie) work so well.

On the other hand, since Netflix didn't make it, there's not telling how they will envision the show as of yet.

Let's hope Netflix doesn't squish our hopes for the show much like this poor, hopeless arachnid:

With only a few weeks left before the July 17 release of Netflix's Wet Hot American Summer show, the big red Internet streaming company knows that our thirst is real.

So, in order to kindly wet our parched palettes, Netflix trotted out another peek at the gang all back together for the Camp Firewood prequel. 

And abosultely none of them look as if they've aged a day.

Everyone's favorite washed up anthropomorphic horse actor is getting ready for his big July 17 return to the small screen.

It looks like the second season will pick up where the last one left off. BoJack Horseman is readying himself for the role of his life — playing Secretariat.

In the meantime he needs to deal with Mr. Peanutbutter and his squatter Todd as they continue to affect his spiraling life.

Prepare for violence.

Even though fans were pretty split on the 2013 return of Arrested Development, the series apparently will be given another chance to redeem its good name. Executive Producer Brian Glazer appeared on the Adam Carolla podcast June 2 and confirmed that Netflix wants more of the Bluths:

"Well, I had a conversation with Fox today, this morning. Netflix is determined to do more episodes, so we're gonna do more episodes. We're going to do it [at] the turn of the year. January, February we're gonna start it. […] Mitch Hurwitz, who I just called while I was sitting out there in your beautiful waiting room. […] I made the call to Mitch to say everybody's into it."



He said the plan is to turn the episodes around and have them on your television or Netflix watchin' device by mid-2016.

No word yet if everyone will return or maybe everyone can be in the same scene for more than two minutes of the season. Here's hoping they turn out a return to form for one of the greatest television comedies of all time.

What do you think? Excited? Meh?

New Photos Prove Wet Hot American Summer is Definitely Coming Back


It was already announced earlier this year that the 2001 comedy would make a return as a Netflix series, with pretty much all of the original cast returning (even though many have become pretty huge names in their own right).

Netflix released photos of the show in production May 22, confirming that we all weren't having a collective fever dream when the news initially dropped.
