Netflix Goes Original for Kids with DreamWorks Dinotrux!

#Netflix #Dinotrux #StreamTeam

When you’re a kid, is there a better toy than a truck? Seriously, I can remember spending hours just sitting on the floor playing with toy trucks when I was a kid. Dump trucks. Bulldozers. Diggers. You name it. If it was big and had wheels, it was part of the action. And what was great is that they worked great anywhere. In my room. In the backyard. At a friend’s house. Yeah, trucks may …

The 10 Commandments of Prison According to Orange is the New Black

#StreamTeam #OITNB

We’re big fans of Netflix’s original series Orange is the New Black. It’s ridiculous, shocking, depressing, hilarious, over-the-top and guaranteed to entertain.

Good. Well, Netflix is far from a one-trick pony. There’s plenty more superheroing to go around. My family regularly watches Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. each week, but I’m happy to see that the first season is now on Netflix! That means more people …

25 Reasons You Need to Watch Marvel’s Daredevil

Netflix #StreamTeam

When I first heard Marvel and Netflix struck a deal to do a number of TV series, I was through the roof excited. Then I heard they’ll be doing street-level series like Daredevil, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage, ultimately bringing it all together with The Defenders. Yeah, my excitement dwindled quite a bit. First out of the gate is Daredevil, and with DD’s multimedia resume (Besides Ben Affleck’s abomination of a Daredevil film, anyone …
