After such a positive reception to the original 90s episodes streaming on Netflix, Steven Spielberg's Amblin Television and Warner Bros. Animation set to work on new material for the trio. Well, the trio and a duo. Pinky and the Brain are part of the package as well.
A new month means new additions to your streaming watch lists. And with new theater releases still slim, providers like Netflix and Hulu have an especially interesting roster of old favorites and new releases ready for October.
On Hulu, settle in for a classic from 1987. At that time, only three Star Wars movies had been released, yet the franchise was already ripe for satire. Mel Brooks' "Spaceballs" unapologetically stepped in and has largely held up over the years.
Meanwhile on Netflix, I can't wait for the new Sacha Baron Cohen movie. No, it's not "Borat 2" (I can't wait for that either, but that's debuting on Amazon Prime later in the month). It's “The Trial of the Chicago 7.” Based on a true story, Aaron Sorkin wrote and directed this film about activists who face trial after protests at the 1968 Democratic National Convention.
Last but not least, the last season of Schitt's Creek will wrap up the now well-known and appreciated series on October 7.
Until we can return to Hawkins for the next season of "Stranger Things," our new chance to watch Millie Bobby Brown hardly looks like a consolation. Netflix dropped its film adaptation of "Enola Holmes" Wednesday, with Brown starring as the title character.
As the younger sibling of the famous Sherlock Holmes, Enola enlists her brother's help when their mother goes missing. She's hardly helpless though, and doesn't sit idly by in the meantime.
This interpretation of the book series is seen as both empowering and entertaining for families. Speaking of which, it's rated PG-13 for violence; occurrences of language and sex in the books is said to be absent from the film.
Of course, it never hurts to screen it first and decide whether it's appropriate for your family.
Netflix's upcoming "This is Paris" documentary already promises a side of Paris Hilton never portrayed in the tabloids or on reality shows like "The Simple Life." The trailer hints at the heiress playing a persona to meet the expectations of others.
In an interview with "People," the 39-year old begins to describe the abuse she endured in boarding school, excerpts of which are below.
"This is Paris" drops on Netflix September 14.
As we round the corner into the last full month of summer, August on Netflix is going to be a welcome distraction.
Timeless indie flicks "Being John Malkovich" and "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" join a trio of "Jurassic Park" installments. Provocative documentaries like "Immigration Nation" and "(Un)Well" can reside on your watch list next to the reality-show brain candy that is Season 3 of "Selling Sunset."
Watch the video below for more bingeworthy offerings.
In just over a week, we'll be able to stream the next bingeworthy series on Netflix, Space Force. Steve Carell and John Malkovich head up a star-filled cast tasked to figuratively and literally get the government's new division off the ground.
The new trailer promises plenty of laughs (mild language warning for playing it in earshot of the kiddos). But as a post in Rolling Stone explains, the jokes aren't at the expense of our military. In fact, advisors were on board to ensure military aspects were more realistic.
The 10-episode first season premiers May 29.
If you need a laugh at the end of the day (or anytime, for that matter), you could do a lot worse than watching Fred Armisen.
Long known for his work from Saturday Night Live to Portlandia and a lot in between, you can stream his Netflix special, Standup for Drummers. In it, he compares and contrasts most every North American accent.
Our geographically-tuned ears still more difference between Chicago and Wisconsin accents, but it's all in good fun and family-friendly.
