My wife – who I love to death – has had June 5th, 2014, carved into her iPhone calendar since probably January of this year, because that was the official release date for the second seasons of Netflix’s latest smash television series, Orange Is the New Black (OITNB for short). While I have not seen the show before – I never really got into Oz, so why would I like OITNB? – I have started to notice some hilarious caption screenshots around the Internet, so I thought it would be funny to put them all in one place. That is, of course, if any of you OITNB fans aren’t too busy binge-watching season two. Hit the link below for the funny OITNB pics, and yes, I guarantee the caption guy/gal at Netflix definitely is getting a raise!
Adam Sandler movies get a lot of flak, and in many cases, the poor reviews are well deserved. Try and think back to the Happy Madison productions that you actually really enjoyed, and no, Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore and The Wedding Singer do not count. For me there are a few, but they’re still heavily outnumbered by the garbage titles; The Benchwarmers and the Grown Ups films were all stellar, and who can forget arguably Sandler’s best film since the original golden three in Grandma’s Boy? On that thought, if you were not a fan of Grandma’s Boy, it’s probably best if you just go ahead and click the red “x” in your browser right now, because SQ may not be the best website for you. So fast forward to today, in which we have yet Sandler’s latest film, Blended, which brings back Drew Barrymore yet again after two previous co-starring roles; the trailer is above – check it out then hit the link below for our slightly qualified thoughts!
What are up to this Friday night? If you’re looking for something different, then head on over to your local theater to catch the brand new Vinny Chase – I mean Adrian Grenier – film, Goodbye World. Although I will likely forever associate Mr. Grenier as the Entourage movie star, his latest movie that’s due out this Friday has some real potential: set in present day, America is hit by a disastrous computer virus called, coincidentally, “Goodbye World”. With utilities, airports, and just about everything imaginable shut down, Vinny and his close friends fall back on their post-apocalyptic survival skills and go off-grid somewhere in Northern California. Everything seems like a cool camping trick until local militias start forming, which is where it appears this plot is going. Check out the trailer, and hit the link below for more slightly qualified movie trailer discussion!
I still meet people who have not watched Archer, or maybe a better way to phrase it – I have still met people who haven’t even heard of Archer. Can you believe it? What’s that? You have no idea what show I’m talking about? Yes, it’s a television show; it airs on FX, and the next season is coming in two months this January. If you like sarcasm, voice-overs from Saturday Night Live actors (from when that show was actually good), and James Bond-type spy/secret agent stuff, then Archer is right up your alley. It is absolutely hilarious, and one of my favorites; the next season cannot come soon enough. As a teaser for the upcoming season, FX just released the hilarious music video spoof you see above from the movie Top Gun’s most-memorable soundtrack tune, Danger Zone. This is a must-see, and so is Archer this coming January.
I may be the only person on the planet who has not watched AMC’s award-winning “Breaking Bad”, but not because I don’t want to – the show is next up on my Netflix Digital personal-catch-up-marathon list, and I’m excited. Although I’m not a fan of Britney Spears’ music, her new song “Work B**tch” goes along quite nicely with Aaron Paul’s character on Breaking Bad, Jesse Pinkman, tends to say quite often, and with varying amounts of enthusiasm.
Netflix has transformed the entire movie rental industry, putting Blockbuster out of business, along with every single “mom and pop” video rental store in the world with its online movie rental, disc-to-door and zero late fees service. This shouldn’t be breaking news to anyone; if it is, well, you’re welcome! With competition however comes, or should come more product enhancements and diversification, which is exactly what Netflix did with its more recent foray into a digital-only service, which allows its members to stream their favorite movies and television shows right to their flat screen tv’s, iPhones, and iPads without even having to get up off the couch. I’m a very happy Netflix digital subscriber, but those who join me in that subscriber group are well aware of the only true, major downside (if you can really argue one for an $8/month service) in that the movie selection is really limited. Unless you like movies like “Life After Porn Ends”, and other “they really made a documentary out of that?”-type titles, which is cool, I guess. Regardless though, you can’t beat $8 bucks a month, and there are plenty of awesome TV shows to keep you entertained before the next major movies get released on your home menu (Archer, Arrested Development, Mad Men, etc), but I digress. What you are about to encounter below is something that every Netflix fan should keep on hand, whether on hand, or hanging on your wall: it’s a “What to Watch on Netflix Flowchart”, and to call it “comprehensive” would be an understatement of epic proportions.
It’s finally here, and thanks to my shoddy wireless router, I have fallen well behind the pack with the long awaited fourth season of Arrested Development. Almost simultaneous to the show’s release on Netflix does my wireless router decide to revert back to ancient Internet speeds, making my streaming Netflix basically un-watchable. You know it’s bad when you can’t even watch a hilarious YouTube video on SQ because it takes 15 minutes to load; thankfully, yesterday, I was able to fix the problem and enjoy the first three episodes of Season 4. So what are my initial thoughts on the season everyone has been waiting for all these years? If you haven’t seen the first three episodes yet, and don’t appreciate a good spoiler, then I’d hold off on hitting that tantalizing link below; that was your warning. The rest of ya’all, click away.
Ladies and gentlemen, Mr and Mrs Tobias Funke. We are less than four freaking days until the long awaited Season 4 (are we calling it a “season”?) of arguably one of the best television shows in history, Arrested Development. The cast has been filming around the clock, and when they’re not recording episodes, they’re jumping in front of the camera taking interviews to ratchet up the marketing plan. If you don’t have Netflix digital yet, what in the world are you waiting for? Do you realize this amazing show will be live in less than four days? And are you also aware that a Netflix digital subscription only costs $8 freaking dollars? No, we’re not on commission, but maybe we should be. I can’t wait! Enjoy the Funke family interview, and we’ll have more to follow!
In just 15 short days, Arrested Development will be back on the airwaves courtesy of the fine folks over at Netflix digital; if you haven’t signed up for Netflix yet, you’re wrong; it only costs like $9 per month. On top of that, you can easily Google for a free trial and simply start it up on May 26th; that should get you at least a few episodes for free if you’re that cheap. So in honor of this rapidly approaching, monumental date in TV history, I present to you the unofficial 200 greatest quotes video from Arrested Development. This will be the best ten minutes you spend all day, that is, unless you decide you want to hang out around SQ longer; then your day will be even sweeter.
Is it May 26th yet? If you’ve never seen the epic television series that is Arrested Development, then you have approximately 27.5 days to catch up. Oh, you’re going to need $8 bucks for a digital subscription to Netflix, because the long-awaited fourth season won’t be airing anywhere else. Embedded above you’ll find a clip that was originally released only to the media back in January, but now stands as the first official new Bluth family footage since the end of season three. Enjoy the exclusive outtake, and hit the link below for more AR memories.
I swear, publishers on the Internet (not us) plan out their next April Fool’s fake content and parodies a year in advance, because they’re getting more and more elaborate. I am pretty sick of it all, and I’m at the point of annoyance when I check out my usual daily visits because now I’m wondering if it’s a joke or not. Just about every site is doing it, but kudos to Netflix for actually making me smile instead of frown. Have you logged into your Netflix account today? I just got home from my 9-5, and found a pretty cool Easter egg after a buddy at work told me about it. Hit the link below for the details, or just fire up your Netflix account if you want to jump straight to the spoilers.
