“Netflix knows the exact episode of a TV show that gets you hooked. A sample:

  • Bloodline — Episode 4
  • Breaking Bad — Episode 2
  • Grace & Frankie — Episode 4
  • House of Cards — Episode 3
  • Mad Men — Episode 6
  • Orange is the New Black — Episode 3
  • Sons of Anarchy — Episode 2
  • Suits — Episode 2
  • The Blacklist — Episode 6
  • The Walking Dead — Episode 2

The episode that Netflix names as the “hooked” episode is the global average, but it found some local variations. “The Dutch, for instance, tend to fall in love with series the fastest, getting hooked one episode ahead of most countries irrespective of the show.” On the other hand, “members in Australia and New Zealand [got] hooked one to two episodes later than the rest of the world on almost every show.”

Do you have any regrets? ‘Yeah, that I always tried the easy way out, always, well I thought it was the easy way out. Always look for an angle, look for a shortcut, I should’ve tried, worked hard, but I gambled and I drank, I begged and hoped, I’m a coward, a failure I guess, I’m not a failure cause I didn’t succeed I’m a failure cause I didn’t try, I’m just glad I met Derek you know, not cause he’s better than me cause everyone’s better than me but cause he makes me feel better, better than everyone, Derek took the best shortcut you can, the only shortcut that’s good, and the only shortcut that works, and that’s kindness.'”

-Kev (TV Show Derek)


No matter what you think of Ricky Gervais, his new series titled Derek is worth watching.  Funny, heartfelt, moving…here’s an excerpt from a Rolling Stone review:

“You might not expect that a series produced, written, directed by and starring Ricky Gervais would find a way to bring a tear to your eye, but that’s precisely what the comedian’s new show Derek manages to do throughout its seven-episode run. Now streaming on Netflix, the series follows Derek Noakes (Gervais) – a kind, selfless, simple minded care worker in Broad Hill retirement home – and his friends and co-workers as they tend the home’s elderly residents, keep Broad Hill afloat and try their best to navigate through their own issues.” (Read Full Review in Rolling Stone)

Gervais has called the show “probably my favorite thing of everything I’ve done,” and we even put it on our list of the most underrated TV shows of 2012. (Read Review in Screenrant).


Here’s the trailer:

The Way: You don’t choose a life Dad, you live one…

I recommend “The Way” for anyone looking for a light, funny, feel-good movie on a rainy Sunday. Basic no-surprise plot. Good casting buckled with very good soundtrack, humor, captivating vistas and mouth watering food scenes. And the lead character (Martin Sheen) is, like me, an acknowledged “Believer of Convenience” (Easter, Christmas) so the flick resonated with me.  The 2-minute trailer captures the plot nicely.
