Dexter Headed To Netflix Streaming Just In Time For Halloween
Still debating whether or not to shell out hundreds of dollars to purchase the Dexter: The Complete Series Collection Blu-ray set? Well, hang onto your wallets, as there’s a far more affordable way to binge-watch all eight seasons of Showtime’s serial killer drama, thanks to Netflix. The first four seasons of the series are set to arrive on Netflix streaming later this week, while the other four seasons will be made available in January.
MTV To Release New Show's Full First Season Via App Ahead Of Broadcast Premiere
Lately I’ve been questioning whether or not binge-watching certain TV shows via Netflix or On Demand is ruining me for regular TV viewing. It’s much easier to get engrossed in a “new” TV show when watching episode after episode on Netflix, isn’t it? Binge-watching allows us to become a fan of a series in a matter of hours, as opposed to a matter of weeks or months, which is how long it takes when watching one episode at a time as they air on TV.
Damages Creators' Family Drama Gets A Series Order At Netflix
Damages creators Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman and Glenn Kessler should know a thing or two about alternative means of distribution when it comes to television. When Damages lost its spot at FX, DirecTV was there to swoop in and pick up the series, airing it on their Audience Network channel, where the series played out for two more seasons. Netflix might have been a good home for a show like Damages, had the streaming video service been offering subscribers original programming back in 2007.
Aziz Ansari Enlists Seth Rogen's Help Promoting His Netflix Comedy Special Buried Alive
As the above promo suggests, Aziz Ansari's new comedy special is coming to a bag of Bugles near you, via flash drive! No, that's not right. It's not coming to Toaster Strudel either, though those are two reasonable ways to promote a comedy special. Alas, Aziz Ansari: Buried Alive is coming to Netflix at the start of November. The promo eventually gets to that, until Seth Rogen brings it back to Bugles. Anyone else craving Bugles?
7 Emmy Nominees We Hope Win This Year
One of the reasons we tune into award ceremonies is because we want to see our favorite talented TV personalities rewarded for the good work they do for our entertainment.

With that in mind, here are our personal picks for who want to see take home an award at the Emmy's this Sunday night.
Would Breaking Bad's Better Call Saul Spinoff Be Better Off At Netflix?
On the success of its original programming, it's been hit or miss for AMC, which is about standard for every cable network. But it seems like the gap between hit or miss is much greater for this particular cable channel, with Mad Men and Breaking Bad scoring critical acclaim and better than average (for cable) ratings, and The Walking Dead raking in the kind of numbers to rival a network TV drama...
The Killing Gets Cancelled Again, Won't Return For Season 4
The Killing had a lot of things going for it when it returned to AMC for a third season after initially getting cancelled, but despite this, ratings didn’t really grow once the new season hit the air. On Tuesday, AMC announced it would be cancelling the series for a second time.
Watch Kevin Spacey's Persuasive Speech Supporting Netflix And Binge Viewing
"Give people what they want" is the gist of the message House of Cards star Kevin Spacey is delivering in the above speech, which he delivered at the James MacTaggart Memorial Lecture at the Edinburgh Television Festival. And Netflix is doing just that, not only by forgoing the pilot stage in the process of sending original programming to series, but by unloading an entire season on its subscribers and allowing them to choose when and how they watch that programming.
Laura Prepon Is Leaving Orange Is The New Black
Those who were hoping to see things work out for Alex and Piper in Orange is the New Black are in for a disappointment. Rumor has it, Laura Prepon's prepping a departure from the series. Her involvement in Season 2 of Jenji Kohan's prison-set Netflix drama will reportedly be for a limited number of episodes before she makes her exit.
Ricky Gervais' Derek Gets Its First U.S. Trailer For Upcoming Netflix Debut
Gervais looks to be in proper form, going just slightly below-the-top in terms of comedy, while somehow remaining sympathetic and charming. I think a lot of what makes this possible is the doc-style that Gervais perfected with The Office.
Breaking Bad Video Recaps The First Half Of Season 5, Or Watch The Full Episodes On Netflix
We're coming up on the one-week countdown to the return of Breaking Bad for its final eight episodes. With that in mind, AMC has released this helpful 3-minute video, which looks back on where the fifth season left off last year. Watching the above video, which does a solid job of rinding us where each character left off, but really only offers a few snippets from each interlinked plot line within the series, it's become very clear to me that I need to rewatch the previously aired eight episodes...
Breaking Bad's Final Episodes Will Be Available On Netflix In The U.K. And Ireland The Day After They Air In The U.S.
Netflix subscribers in the U.K. and Ireland won't have to wait very long to see the final eight episodes of Breaking Bad. The streaming video service has secured a deal that will have new episodes of the AMC drama series available streaming a day after they air in the U.S. So after the mid-season premiere airs August 11, it'll be available streaming on Netflix in the U.K. on August 12.
Arrested Development Season 5 Discussions Reportedly Happening At Netflix
Nothing is official or set in stone yet, so it's probably a bit premature to start celebrating this news, but it sounds like there's a chance Arrested Development will be renewed for another season. At the very least, talks are reportedly in the works to make that happen. Time has been ticking by like FakeBlock since the fourth season debuted back in May.
Orange Is The New Black Review: Netflix's New Series Finds Drama And Humor Behind Bars
If Netflix is looking to run with the premium cable channels out there in terms of the original content they offer their subscribers, Orange is the New Black is one more step in the right direction. It's funny, dark and a little bit raw, much like some of the series we see on pay cable. Most of all, it's original and it's set up to draw further and further into the story with each passing episode.
Orange Is The New Black Clip Focuses On The Most Important Rule About Prison
Next week, Netflix will unveil their next original series, and if Orange is the New Black turns out to be half as good as its trailer, we may be in for another great Netflix binge. Whether or not that turns out to be the case remains to be seen. In the meantime, the above clip is brief, but gives us a peek at what Taylor Schilling's character Piper Chapman is going through as she attempts to adjust to prison life. Rule #1: Being perceived as weak is a bad thing on the inside.
