The ever-evolving Netflix model makes it difficult to discern viewer data, let alone interpret what tidbits the company confirms. That said, Netflix has been studying “binge racers” who finish seasons within twenty-four hours of their debut, and you might be surprised by the highs and lows.
It’s a brave new world for the 2017 Emmy awards with Game of Thrones and others sitting this year out. The big announcement is finally here, as presented by Veep star Anna Chlumsky and Criminal Minds veteran Shemar Moore, so let’s find out what we’re all angry about/celebrating this year at the Emmys!
It’s that time of the year again when we begin to take stock of the best TV of the year and put our heads together to predict who will take home the gold come awards night. On Thursday, the TV Academy will announce their selections for the 2017 Emmy Awards. We already know the usual suspects will pop up, from shoo-in Julia Louis-Dreyfus to Modern Family and House of Cards, but what about the new series and the underdogs?
If you can’t decide what to watch this weekend, ScreenCrush’s Staff Picks are here to help. They’re like the recommendations at an old video store, except you don’t have to put on pants or go outside to get them. Here are four things to watch this weekend:
It’s Orange Is the New Black day, as Season 5 finally gets its (official) release from behind Netflix bars. Four seasons is a lot to binge before diving into new episodes, however, so revisit the entire series with a new stop-motion recap that doesn’t hold back on any of the more NSFW content.
Sesame Street is no stranger to parodying more mature series, even if the children watching have no concept of the show in question. We’d doubt if any kids have even heard of Orange Is the New Black, but there’s an odd charm to its wholesome Orange Is the New Snack makeover.
We still don’t know for sure whether Orange Is the New Black begins with as big a bang in Season 5 as we left, but Litchfield is ready to explode all the same. See for yourself, as the inmates stand up and take over in the first full trailer for Season 5, along with new photos.
Surprised though we were to learn that Orange Is the New Black Season 5 would take place over a condensed timeline, our first extended look is even more urgent. Check back in on that finale cliffhanger with a new Season 5 clip, and see the first photos!
Orange Is the New Black Season 4 left us on a more immediate cliffhanger than we’re used to, and it seems Season 5 won’t be losing that level of intensity. Star Danielle Brooks claims the whole of Season 5 will unfurl over just a few days; presumably picking up with the in-progress riot of Season 4.
