I watched the first episode of Twin Peaks. I got it so I can see the third season of House of Cards, but I've seen some other stuff I've never heard of that looks decent.

Black Mirror is on Netflix, I believe. If you haven't seen that you should check it out.

I steal Netflix from the gf. Well, she was over one time and was mad I didn't have it and made me an account. It is glorious. I will get it if/when we break up.

I'm really excited that Dead Snow 2 and White Bird in a Blizzard are hitting Netflix.

Also, The Brothers Bloom is great.

Did you mean "social circle" or did you really mean "penis"? Let's get to the point.

as cromulent as that sounds, for the next few months the pool is only open from 7:30-8:30 to the public on weeknights...i'm not sure i want to commit to something with such limited availability

Welp. "Game of Thrones for a family audience". :/

Quote:
Netflix Is Developing a Live-Action ‘Legend of Zelda’ Series

“The Legend of Zelda,” one of the most popular videogame series of all time, is in the works as a television show at Netflix.

The video streaming service is in the early stages of developing a live action series based on “Zelda,” about an ordinary boy named Link who must rescue a princess named Zelda and save a fantasy world called Hyrule, said a person familiar with the matter. As it seeks writers to work on the show, Netflix is describing it as “Game of Thrones” for a family audience, this person said.

The “Zelda” games have traditionally included swords and sorcery, like “Game of Thrones” or “Lord of the Rings,” but typically with a more light-hearted, kid-friendly tone.

Netflix is said to be working closely with Nintendo, the Japanese game developer that has made about 20 “The Legend of Zelda” games since the original, which was released in the U.S. in 1987.

Nintendo is very protective of its intellectual property and has allowed few adaptations over the years. An animated “Legend of Zelda” series ran for just one season in 1989. A 1993 movie based on Nintendo’s “Super Mario Bros.” was an infamous bomb.

As it is still seeking a writer to work on the series, Netflix has a long road to travel before a “Legend of Zelda” series actually becomes a reality. It’s also possible that Netflix or Nintendo will kill the project before it gets off the ground.

A Netflix spokeswoman declined to comment. A Nintendo spokesman said the company “doesn’t comment on rumors and speculation.”

I really can't imagine Zelda being any good in series form. That property will only succeed with a really passionate, cinematic aesthetic behind it. And the "family-friendly" thing seems worrisome, unless they just mean it won't have GOT-style gore and sex.

Yeah, I guess I was just hoping someone would take on an Ocarina of Time movie.
