Netflix has announced that their hit show, House of Cards is being canceled after it’s 6th season. There is no word on if this is related to the allegations from Anthony Rapp that the star of House of Cards, Kevin Spacey, made sexual advances to Rapp.
Spacey came out as gay yesterday after the allegations from Rapp hit the news wire. In a statement on Facebook, Spacey said that he is has chosed to live his life a gay man. Here is the full statement from Spacey.
Commentary: It sucks that Kevin Spacey’s past has potentially cost hundreds of people their jobs. Season 6 of House of Cards will be good. In reality, they should cut Spacey and keep the show going.

Netflix has renewed Friends From College for a second season (eight episodes). In Friends From College, a group of friends from Harvard played by Keegan-Michael Key (Ethan), Cobie Smulders (Lisa), Annie Parisse (Sam), Nat Faxon (Nick), Fred Savage (Max) and Jae Suh Park (Marianne) face down their forties. With interwoven and oftentimes complicated relationships with one another, Friends From College is a comedic exploration of old friendships, former romantic entanglements and balancing adult life with nostalgia for the past. The series was co-created by Nicholas Stoller (Neighbors, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek) and Francesca Delbanco, who also serve as executive producers. Stoller also directs the series and Delbanco serves as a writer.
FreeForm TV’s show Young & Hungry stars Emily Osment as a 23-year old chef who gets hired by a tech millionaire and falls in love with him. Well, there is a lot more involved in that.
Osment stars as Gabi Diamond. Gabi’s best friend is Sophie Rodriguez played by Aimee Carrero. Jonathan Sadowski plays Josh Kaminski, the millionaire tech mogul who hired Gabi to cook for him. Rex Lee plays Josh’s gay publicist, Elliot. Kym Whitley plays Yolanda, Josh’s badass housekeeper. The show is executive-produced by Ashley Tisdale (Tisdale also plays Logan Rawlins, a lesbian editor, and media mogul).
I recommend Binge watching this series. It’s not a massive commitment to binge. Seasons 1, 3, 4, and 5 all have 10 episodes while season 2 has 20.
The writing in this show is pretty good. You can tell, however, that it is a Disney owned/produced show by the editing and the music they use. The show is designed for young adults and has some really amazing moments. Plus, we all know a couple like Josh and Gabi.
Josh and Gabi spend the better part of the season trying to figure themselves out. Should they be together? Should they or shouldn’t they sleep together? EVERYONE knows a couple who can’t stand each other when they are together, and then can’t stand being apart. Although, I don’t know anyone who sleeps with their boss, dates them, breaks up with them AND still has their job.
I give this show 4/5 stars. But I also put it in my top tier for binge watching.
In a film for our times, writer-director David Michôd (Animal Kingdom) recreates a U.S. General’s roller-coaster rise and fall as part reality, part savage parody – raising the specter of just where the line between them lies today. His is an anti-establishment, pro-soldier exploration in the form of an absurdist war story of a born leader’s ultra-confident march right into the dark heart of folly. At the story’s core is Brad Pitt’s sly take on a successful, charismatic four-star general who leapt in like a rock star to command NATO forces in Afghanistan, only to be taken down by his own hubris and a journalist’s no-holds-barred expose. War Machine addresses the debt we owe to soldiers to question the purposes to which they are being directed.
The Netflix original film is inspired by the book The Operators: The Wild & Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan by the late journalist Michael Hastings. Joining Pitt in War Machine is a highly decorated cast including Emory Cohen, RJ Cyler, Topher Grace, Anthony Michael Hall, Anthony Hayes, John Magaro, Scoot McNairy, Will Poulter, Alan Ruck, Lakeith Stanfield, Josh Stewart, Meg Tilly, Tilda Swinton and Sir Ben Kingsley. Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Ted Sarandos and Ian Bryce serve as producers. James W. Skotchdopole, Pauline Fischer, Sarah Bowen and Sarah Esberg serve as executive producers. The film will be released on Netflix on May 26, 2017.
