Netflix: Flicks? On the Internet? That's just crazy talk!

Why do I feel like the lady who basically made this happen through her "Grown Up Wednesday" videos isn't going to get a damn penny?

I just realized how weird it is that Tim Burton hasn't actually don't anything official with the Addams Family before
 

Octopus Prime

On the one hand, this does kind of seem like it'd be a passion project for him, and it's been a *while* since I've seen a movie Tim seemed enthusiastic about.

On the other hand, this is a Tim Burton production, and I just thought about him casting Johnny Depp as Gomez and threw up in my mouth a little.

It sounds like Burton is directing but the Smallville creators are showrunning. I don’t know if that makes the situation better or worse.

I feel like someone mentioned that at one point, but if not:

There is a documentary about the history of He-Man. Only watched the first third of it by now, but I find it really interesting. It's called The Power of Grayskull.

And I just learned that J. Michael Straczynski, Mr. Babylon 5, worked as a writer on the original He-Man cartoon. Huh.

Anyone watched Shadow and Bone yet? I'm not familiar with the books it's based on but it seems to be a fairly entertaining YA fantasy story, if a bit predictable and by-the-numbers so far. But I've been in the mood for some genre TV so I've been enjoying it.

I could not make it through the first episode of season 3, where the show revealed that it really was going all in on being at least 30% STEP ON ME HOT EVIL LADY.

Deliver us to the halcyon days of 2010 when castlevania the tv show only existed in our wildest dreams and we were all bissfully ignorant of Grant Morrison's Warren Ellis' long history of being a weird sex pest.

I am hoping we get more “Unstoppable Lord of Terror” Drac and less “Suicidally Depressed Batdad” Drac.

One is a lot more fun to watch

I liked it. Surprisingly high budget for a Netflix genre show, and apparently it's a good adaptation of the source material (which is, let's be real, also surprising for a Netflix project)
