2016 Netflix Originals Part 2

We have decided that there should be Netflix for pets. But, since there isn’t currently, we can only talk about the one for peoples. So, here is the rest of 2016.

  • Orange is the New Black – We don’t care for the main characters, but Red is awesome. Also an interesting look at the difference between private and public prison institutions. Just look what happened to Luke Cage!
  • Voltron: Legendary Defender – Absolutely excellent! Completely worth the watch, especially if you aren’t into other areas of anime. Season 2 will be out in January 2017.
  • BoJack Horsemen – BoJack has issues. The animal jokes throughout are funny.
  • Stranger Things – This show is crazy good. The 1980s nostalgia alone is worth the watch. Mystery/thriller/sci-fi that really represents the 80s. It’s dark and gritty. We talk about the differences between the disappearances of Will and Barb and the importance of an active imagination. We go in depth with the different characters and actors on this one.
  • Luke Cage – Damn. He is hot. Aside from the hotness, this show is really good. Definitely one to check out and binge. Long discussion here.
  • Black Mirror – Totally fucked up, so it may take some time to get into. Kind of like your Klout score becoming your net worth.
  • Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life – A 4 part 90-min series catching up on what happened since we last visited Stars Hollow.

Be sure to leave us a 5-star review on iTunes or wherever. Because we are awesome.

Episode 57 – 2016 Netflix Originals Part 1

In this episode, Liz and Heather discuss all of the 2016 Netflix Originals Part 1 that we have seen or heard good things about. Sit back and enjoy the first part, as we blab way too much for a single episode.

We are also drinking on this episode – Fireball whiskey + Cream soda = Delicious! Plus a random discussion about coffee.

2016 Netflix Originals Part 1

  • Fuller House – Definitely worth the watch if you were a fan of the original series back in the 90s or in the last two decades as it has run in syndication.
  • Daredevil (Season 2) – Marvel has done an awesome job on these Netflix episodes because they can do so much in this format that can’t be done on network TV.
  • PeeWee’s Big Holiday – Same personality as back in the day, so check it out. Totally makes you forget about him jerking off in a movie theater.
  • Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Season 2) – So freaking funny. Enough said.
  • Patton Oswalt’s Talking for Clapping (stand-up comedy special) – So unbelievably funny. He is delightful. Also recommended: Lady Dynamite. Also, check out the College Humor series of BadMan (a take on Batman) – Patton Oswalt plays the Penguin and it’s awesome.
  • House of Cards – Creepy and awesome.
  • Grace and Frankie – Meh. This one had high hopes, but hasn’t really thrilled me yet.
