netflix originals

The subscription service that is revolutionising the way the west watches television, Netflix became a household name practically overnight. Having all your favourite shows and a boatload of movies available to view on demand makes life so much easier for anyone with a job or a hobby or a life, who can’t always be there when shows are broadcast live. It saves having to remember to record stuff and costs a hell of a lot less than buying or renting everything you want to watch individually. Already instrumental in forging the future of home viewing, Netflix moved into creating its own original content in 2013.

There are tons of things you can watch to get to grips with the kind of content Netflix is capable of creating, and it’s well worth doing. Though it’s as guilty of the occasional dud as any other network, there is enough great quality original stuff on there to keep you occupied for months on end.

If you’re new to Netflix and want somewhere to start, you could do a lot worse than checking out these cool shows. (more…)

supermanbeard

We’ve all seen the trailers and clips of Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel and many of us have wondered about the beard. It’s been an on-again, off-again, almost running gag in the Superman comics and cartoons. How exactly does Superman cut his hair, trim his nails, or shave his beard. Some of us fans have taken it to another level of worry, just check out what Conan has to say on the subject.

Below are a series of videos detailing each celebrity’s theory on how Superman takes care of that Super-Manly beard. After you’ve checked them all out you can vote for your favorite over at Gillette‘s YouTube page: Howdoesheshave.

I have to say that I find this type of movie cross marketing as one of the more amusing of the genre. Usually those commercials are annoying and an obvious cash grab with little thought to the subject matter. I prefer this more cerebral-tongue-in-cheek approach.

Bill Nye is BREAKING BAD

AMC’s Breaking Bad just kicked back up again. What season is it in now…. 3… 4? I dunno, I stopped watching after season 2. Not because it isn’t the best serialized drama in the history of television, which IT IS. Truth is, I have a very bad addiction to porn. My frequent fapping interrupts my DVR viewing. It’s rather sad. *violin plays*. I’d so rather be watching a high school chemistry teacher “break bad” by teaming up with a former student to make and sell Meth to the masses. Alas, titties are my kryptonite.

Anyway, for your veteran BB fans, have you ever noticed how Walter White behaves like another elementary astute, forerunner of facts…… Bill Bye ‘The Science Guy’? Yea… I never made the comparison either, but this video from CollegeHumor certainly does. Walter is always regurgitating some science to Jesse (his protegee) , explaining to his dumb head how and why shit works. “Painfully descriptive”.

Bah, enough of my ramble. Breaking Bad and Bill Nye. It’s a winning combination. Watch NOW!
