Have you been longing for a cartoon about drag queen superheroes? Nor was I, but Netflix has given us one anyway. It's Super Drags, which the streaming service describes as "three gay co-workers lead double lives as drag queen superheroes, saving the LGBTQ community from evil nemeses." Throughout the series, there is one nemesis who remains constant and, of course, he is religious. And looks like Hitler.
[SPOILER ALERT for key plot elements of the final season of House of Cards.] If you thought the Netflix original political drama House of Cards was outlandish in the past, wait until you see how off the rails it goes in its final season while revealing some surprising truths about abortion and feminism on the way. The sixth and final season of House of Cards, released on November 2, takes place following the death of former President Francis “Frank” Underwood.
“Method actors” often immerse themselves in the life and experiences of characters they play to be able to bring believability to a role. Makes sense if you’re trying to portray a person in a plausibly real-world situation.
When Netflix announced a production deal further enriching Barack and Michelle Obama in May, it was reported that “Obama's projects are not intended to address President Donald Trump or conservatives. Instead, it would focus on inspirational content.” But their first deal is to develop the Michael Lewis book The Fifth Risk as a potential series. The book details chaos at cabinet departments during the Trump administration.
Let me just say right up front that I am very disappointed that there is no talking cat in this version of the old Sabrina the Witch story. There is a black cat, Salem, who serves as Sabrina’s familiar but he doesn’t talk. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is not the Sabrina of days past. This Netflix version is not fun and light-hearted. It’s dark and cynical with a very heavy dose of fighting the male patriarchy through very anti-Christian means at the heart of the storyline. The setting is Greendale, a town with its own history of witch hunts.
This month streaming kingpin Netflix welcomed into its fold a new season for an animated comedy which tore through desperately needed boundaries like tissue paper. Nick Kroll’s show “gives zero f**ks,” and apparently, neither does Netflix.
I sat through all ten episodes of the second season of Netflix’s Big Mouth, an animated adult sitcom, so you don't have to and all I can say is, that is five hours I’ll never get back. You're welcome. I honestly don’t know why this series was brought back for another season unless it was to simply appease the liberal universe with their 30-minute ode to Planned Parenthood.
Streaming giant Netflix released the documentary Reversing Roe on Sept. 13, with its directors touting it as an impartial investigation into both sides of the contentious abortion debate in America. As reported by MRC Culture on Sept. 18, the film did not live up to its lofty expectations as hours of interview footage with pro-life women were excluded from the film.
Netflix is celebrating after winning big at the Emmys. But the streaming giant can’t claim a win on its new documentary concerning abortion: while Netflix says it tells the “whole story,” women abortion advocates showed up 13 times more than their pro-life counterparts. And it isn’t that producers couldn’t find knowledgeable women against abortion. They did, but literally “days” of footage featuring them ended up on the cutting room floor.
Democracy depends on the ability to end others’ lives before they’re even born, according to one famed feminist. Netflix released a trailer for its new documentary, Reversing Roe, on Sept. 4. The timely teaser for the abortion law film comes during Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings. The film hits computer screens Sept. 13, and appears to include interviews with abortion activists including Gloria Steinem.
From the endless mockery of Christianity and Christian beliefs, to the promotion of all kinds of sexual and gender identity exploration among minors and adults alike, to liberal issues like abortion, Netflix’s newest teen dramedy Insatiable is definitely not anything I would have let my kids watch when they were impressionable, teens. The series is rated TV-MA, but it's clear they're aiming for a much younger audience.
