First Trailer For Netflix's 'Hemlock Grove' Is Really Murdery

In its bid to establish itself as a rival to HBO, Netflix is releasing another original series that we can binge-cram into our eyeballs. On the heels of last month's successful release of House Of Cards comes Hemlock Grove; a new horror series produced by famed gross-ass Eli Roth, who also directed the pilot and two-part finale. The story begins after a brutal murder. The two suspects: Peter Rumancek, a 17-year-old Gypsy trailer trash kid rumored to be a werewolf, and Roman, the heir to the Godfrey estate. To clear their names, the two team up to find the actual killer.
The entire series will be made available on April 19th so much sure the gulch in your couch cushion is comfortable for hours on end. The series stars Famke Janssen (the X-Men trilogy) and Bill Skarsgard (sounds like the name of the guy on True Blood) and whoever that bald girl pushing her wig back is. At first I thought she was Christina Ricci.
Honest mistake.

Netflix Offers A Trailer For Its First Original Series, 'Lilyhammer'

Fans of Silvio Dante from 'The Sopranos', this is for you. That's right, Lilyhammer. Netflix first (and admittedly, lowest profile when compared to House of Cards and Arrested Development) original series follows The Sopranos' Steven Van Zandt as a mobster (!) who enters the witness protection program in Lillehammer, Norway. Of course, we watch him as a fish out of water in both civil matters, and, presumably, watch him fall back into the Scandinavian underworld. The entire series will be released at once starting on February 6, so you can plow through the eight episode first season run with no waiting. Judging from the trailer, getting through the series should take me about eight hours. This show looks pretty damn good, with a Coen-brothers sensibility; a balance of drama, action, and comedy. Yay February!


Here's A Pretty Awesome First Look At Netflix' 'Wet Hot American Summer' Series

It's the first day of Camp Firewood, and H. Jon Benjamin is here to narrate. We knew Wet Hot American Summer was coming to Netflix. Now we can confirm that the bat-sh*t crazy foundation of the original is still in place thanks to this fake promotional video that shows us what's in store for the gang at Camp Firewood. Does it hurt that it's narrated by H. Jon Benjamin? No. No it does not. Here's the clip: Yup. That brief little cutout was a throwback to the Michael Ian Black/Bradley Cooper lovemaking scene from the film. A nice little piece of fan service, which is important, because I'm not sure this is going to find a new audience given its weirdness.


Netflix Gives Us A Filthy Trailer For Cartoon Series 'Bojack Horseman'

"Bojack? That's a beautiful name." In case you thought Netflix was just going the drama route with Orange is the New Black, House of Cards, and the like, I'll have you know that they're also making inroads with comedy. Very high-concept comedy. Will Arnett, Aaron Paul, and Amy Sedaris have combined forces (and voices) to bring us BoJack Horseman, the story of a former celebrity horse whose day in the sun has passed and is now just trying to get through things one day at a time. The subject matter seems to be exclusively R-Rated, so this probably isn't one for the toddlers. But, hey, they get Dora. Let us have this.


The Wachowskis' Netflix Series Looks To Be The Most Wachowski Thing Ever

It's got their trademark action and confusing storytelling. Despite a string of flops that have likely cost their investors a fortune, the Wachowskis' are really leaning into the convoluted, nonsense storytelling style they've adopted for their Netflix series, Sense8. It's kind of their trademark now. The series focuses on a diverse group of eight strangers, all unconnected from one another who are suddenly able to share thoughts, experiences, sensations, and sweet karate skills. What better device to allow an everyday person to suddenly be the last man standing in a hyper-stylized slow-motion gun battle? Besides virtual reality, of course.


Netflix Offers Up Trailer For New Series 'Bloodline'

Get familiar with the Rayburn clan. This trailer doesn't offer up a whole lot of information about their new show Bloodline, but the cast alone is enough to pique our interest. We've got Sissy Spacek, Kyle Chandler, Linda Cardellini, and Sam Shepherd. Other than that, I can tell you it takes place in Florida, it has Chandler being serious as usual, and there' a prodigal son named Danny who appears to give the family a lot of grief. Oh, and there's a really breath-y acoustic cover of Metallica's "Nothing Else Matters," which is pretty pointless. So check it out, and be glad you weren't born a Rayburn, whatever that means.


Back In <del>Black</del> Orange: 'Orange Is The New Black' Season 2 Trailer

Take another look inside the reality of women's prisons and all their wacky hairdos. Orange Is The New Black is back with a trailer for season two which was almost the perfect opportunity to use AC/DC's "Back In Black." Almost. Thanks to the shortsightedness of the show titling dept., there will be no rocking with anybody's anything out. The Netflix original series gives us a look inside the reality of women's prisons and all their wacky hairdos.


Netflix Unveils The Trailer For Escobar-Based Drug Series 'Narcos'

But who's going to play Ronald Reagan, serving up empty platitudes about the war on drugs. It seems over the past decade that many efforts to tell the tale of Pablo Escobar and the South American cartels on the big screen came up fruitless, but it's pretty clear that Netflix is willing to take a crack at it nonetheless. With Narcos, the streaming service will tell the tale of not just Pablo Escobar in the 80s and 90s but several other drug kingpins as well. And the stories of the many different law enforcement agencies pitted against them will also be told. Wagner Moura will star as the cartel leader, while Jose Padilha will direct the series.

More Murder-y Hijinks In New 'Django Unchained' Spot

It's like 'Shanghai Noon' minus the karate. In a minute long spot for this holiday season's bloodiest buddy comedy romp, we get a better look at the madcap adventures of Jamie Foxx's Django and Christoph Waltz's bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz. That's some pretty wacky gangland-style killing. We haven't seen an Old West duo so mismatched since Shanghai Noon. We also get a look at Samuel L. Jackson outfitted to resemble Latter Years Louis Armstrong. Sadly, he doesn't even attempt to do the voice.


Netflix 'Marco Polo' Trailer Has Literally Nothing To Do With The Swimming Pool Game

However, if we're drawing parallels, I guess his father, who gave him away as a slave, would be his "fish out of water." In about a month, the new Netflix historical drama/actioner Marco Polo will take you off your couch and into the magical age of discovery. Sounds pretty awesome, eh? Well, you can judge for yourself now that the first full-length trailer is out. While Netflix has offered original series in the past, and will continue to do so, this show, a partnership with The Weinstein Company, seems to exist on a bigger scale than the others. So is Netflix ready to go against the likes of Game of Thrones? Dammit. That's the second rhetorical question you've asked me. Just watch the video.
