Christian Serratos Transforms into Selena Quintanilla in Selena: The Series Trailer

  • Post category:Netflix

This is Christian Serratos like you’ve never seen her before. 

Netflix on Monday dropped the full-length trailer for its two-season limited series, Selena: The Series. 

Serratos, best known for starring as Rosita on The Walking Dead, debuts as the late Mexican-American singer Selena Quintanilla in the first footage of the freshman season. 

Selena: The Series Poster

Quintanilla was a huge star, but her life was tragically cut short when she was murdered by fan club president Yolanda Saldivar in 1995. 

The series is a biographical coming-of-age story based on the life of Selena as she chases her dreams, and the heart-wrenching and life-changing sacrifices she and her family make as they navigate the highs and lows of success, loss, love, and music.  

“Before she became the Queen of Tejano Music, Selena Quintanilla was a young girl from Texas with big dreams and an even bigger voice,” reads the official logline.

selena pic

“The two-part coming-of-age drama Selena: The Series explores the once-in-a-generation performer’s journey as a young artist, from singing small gigs in Corpus Christi with her family to becoming one of the most successful Latin artists of all time — and the years of grit and sacrifice the Quintanilla family navigated together before Selena’s meteoric rise to fame.”

From executive producers Jaime Dávila, Rico Martinez, Hiromi Kamata, Suzette Quintanilla, Simran A. Singh, and Moises Zamora, Selena: The Series was created by Zamora, with Don Todd (This is U) consulting, and stars Christian Serratos (The Walking Dead).

The rest of the cast includes Gabriel Chavarria (East Los High) as A.B. Quintanilla, Selena’s oldest brother, Ricardo Chavira (Desperate Housewives) as Abraham Quintanilla, Selena’s father, Noemi Gonzalez (The Young and the Restless) as Suzette Quintanilla, Selena’s sister, Seidy Lopez (Training Day) as Marcella Quintanilla, Selena’s mother, and Madison Taylor Baez as Young Selena.  

Have a look at the full trailer below, and stream the series when it makes its Netflix debut on December 4.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Final Season Gets Netflix Premiere Date

  • Post category:Netflix

Sabrina Spellman’s chilling reign will come to a close Thursday, December 31, 2020. 

Netflix announced the premiere date for the fourth and final part of the beloved drama on Monday morning after weeks of speculation. 

“Chilling Adventures of Sabrina re-imagines the origin and adventures of Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a dark coming-of-age story that traffics in horror, the occult and, of course, witchcraft,” reads the official synopsis from Netflix.

Sabrina and Nick in Hell - Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

“Over the course of Part 4’s eight episodes, The Eldritch Terrors will descend upon Greendale.”

“The coven must fight each terrifying threat one-by-one (The Weird, The Returned, The Darkness to name a few), all leading up to…The Void, which is the End of All Things,” it continues. 

“As the witches wage war, with the help of The Fright Club, Nick begins to slowly earn his way back into Sabrina’s heart, but will it be too late?”

A New Ally or a New Enemy? - Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

Netflix swung the ax on CAOS earlier this year, much to the surprise of the show’s rabid fans. 

“Working on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has been an incredible honor from day one,” Aguirre-Sacasa said at the time of the cancellation.

“The cast, beginning with Kiernan as everyone’s favorite teen witch, has been an absolute joy.

Lilith Dressed to Impress - Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

“I am beyond thankful to the crew, writers, editors, assistants, and everyone for pouring so much love into this dark dream of a show.

The cast of part four includes Kiernan Shipka, Miranda Otto, Ross Lynch, Lucy Davis, Chance Perdomo, Michelle Gomez, Jaz Sinclair, Lachlan Watson, Gavin Leatherwood, Tati Gabrielle, Adeline Rudolph, Abigail Cowen, and Richard Coyle.

The Dark Lord - Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 1 Episode 20

News of a premiere date has been expected for a while now, especially with Halloween slowly creeping up on us. 

Fans have just eight episodes remaining, but Aguirre-Sacasa has been open about wanting to continue the series in some capacity. 

Have a look at the official teaser below.

Mindhunter Is Probably Canceled, According to David Fincher

  • Post category:Netflix

Viewers have probably seen the last of Mindhunter. 

The beloved Netflix series starred Holt McCallany and Jonathan Groff as two FBI agents spearheading profiling techniques in the late ’70s and early ’80s – blending real-life criminals with the narrative. 

In a new interview with Vulture, David Finger has opened up about how the series is likely toast after two seasons. 

mindhunter 2

Earlier this year, it was announced that the cast options had expired, throwing future seasons into doubt. 

“We had done the first season of Mindhunter without a showrunner, with me pinch-hitting on a week-by-week basis,” Fincher explained to Vulture. 

mindhunter 3

“We started getting scripts for the second season, and I ended up looking at what was written and deciding I didn’t like any of it.”

“So we tossed it and started over. But it’s a 90-hour work week. It absorbs everything in your life.

“When I got done, I was pretty exhausted, and I said, ‘I don’t know if I have it in me right now to break season three.’ […] Mindhunter was a lot for me.”

Fincher was then asked whether the show was effectively done at the streamer after two seasons. 

Ed Kemper Mindhunter S2

“I think probably. Listen, for the viewership that it had, it was an expensive show.

“I honestly don’t think we’re going to be able to do it for less than I did season two. And on some level, you have to be realistic about dollars have to equal eyeballs.”

Netflix has made a string of questionable decisions of late, canceling The Society, GLOW, and I Am Not Okay With This. 

Two of those shows were officially renewed for additional seasons, but the streamer said they were being cut short due to complications from COVID-19. 

With the streamer not giving much information on viewership for shows, it’s difficult to assess what will be axed. 

mindhunter 1

While Mindhunter was buzzy, it was thought to be a costly series, something that would need to justify a lot of viewers. 

With the cast contracts expiring, the writing was on the wall for a third season, and it looks even less likely.

Airdate: We are the Champions

  • Post category:Netflix

This may be an exercise in abject stupidity (…or for Gogglebox if it wasn’t off air).

Netflix will screen quirky contest series We Are the Champions, which has battles between Cheese Rolling, Chilli Eating, Fantasy Hair Styling, Yo-Yo, Dog Dancing and Frog Jumping.

From executive producer Rainn Wilson, We Are the Champions explores the quirkiest, most charming, and oddly inspirational competitions you never knew existed. Each episode follows a unique competition, providing a window into a world of determined, passionate, and incredibly skilled competitors who put it all on the line to become heroes in their own extraordinary worlds.

We Are the Champions is a Dirty Robber production. Executive producers and directors are Brian Golden Davis, Nick Frew and Martin Desmond Roe; Chris Uetwiller is executive producer; and Rainn Wilson is executive producer and narrator.

Episode 1: Cheese Rolling
Each May, in a quiet English village, thousands of people gather to watch runners chase a wheel of cheese down a hill. A very steep hill. We Are the Champions follows competitors as they sprint, tumble and crash down the hill at top speed—risking fractured limbs and broken collar bones—to cross the finish line first and be crowned the Cheese Rolling Champion.

Tuesday November 17 on Netflix.

How Do I Get Acorn TV or BritBox on My TV?

  • Post category:Netflix

how to get britbox on your tv feature

One of the most common questions we get from new readers is this: “How do I get Acorn TV (or BritBox) on my television? I don’t want to watch on my iPad or computer.”

The good news is that there are tons of different ways to do it. Some people use a smart TV. Others run an HDMI cable between their computer and television. Some even subscribe via their local cable company, though we don’t generally recommend it. Based on emails we get from people, it seems to cause a lot of problems, and some cable companies make it kind of challenging to add and remove stations when you want.

One Simple Way to Get Acorn TV or BritBox on Your Television

Since we know streaming is new for many of our readers, we’re not going to throw 30 different methods at you. After helping people with this for a few years (including our own family members), we’ve found it’s usually best to pick one simple, reliable method and toss the rest.

So, while there are other ways and devices you can use, our official recommendation is this: Get a Roku.

Things You Need to Use a Roku

As long as you have high-speed internet access in your home, you’ll be able to use a Roku with your television.

Most of the Roku devices require you to use wireless internet, but there is one model that will support a wired connection to your modem/router – it’s the Roku Ultra 2020, but we’ll talk more about the differences late.

For now, just know that any high-speed internet plan will work, even though having the ability to connect wirelessly gives you more options. If you’re not sure about this, your internet service provider should be able to help you figure it out.

The other thing that’s helpful but not 100% necessary is a TV with an HDMI port. It looks like this:

HDMI port and cable

Most modern televisions have at least 2 ports like this one, and many have even more. If you’re using an older TV that does NOT have an HDMI port, you’re not completely out of luck – but you’ll need to either get an old Roku model (not advised since they’re quite slow) or use a device called an HDMI to RCA converter (also called HDMI to Composite Converter). This will allow you to effectively give your old television an HDMI port.

Why a Roku?

Roku’s simple, large-print remote makes it a great choice for those with imperfect vision

There ARE other devices you can use to stream (like Amazon’s Fire devices). We recommend Roku over those devices for a few reasons:

  • The interface is simpler, and doesn’t promote Amazon over other services. The Amazon-specific devices are a little harder to navigate, especially for anything outside their video platform.
  • The remote control is simple and eye-friendly. While the little channel shortcut buttons at the bottom vary slightly from one model to the next, the most important thing about the Roku remote is that they’ve resisted the urge to overcomplicate it. Everything is big and readable, and the number of buttons is small enough that you’ll soon find yourself navigating it by touch without even looking. 
  • A Roku is compatible with a wide variety of streaming channels. When companies design streaming apps, they typically design them for the most common platforms and devices. Roku is the single most popular streaming media device, and there aren’t many channels that don’t make themselves available on Roku. There are more than 4500 channels available to add to your Roku, but some of the most important ones for British TV fans include Acorn TV, BritBox, Amazon Prime Video, Inside Outside (British Home & Garden), Topic, Netflix, Hulu, Sundance Now, PBS Masterpiece (through the Amazon Prime Video channel), Peacock, and Tubi.

We do not receive any money from Roku to make this recommendation. We do get a very small commission from Amazon if you buy through our Amazon links, but it’s actually LESS than what we would get if you bought an Amazon Fire device. We genuinely believe the Roku is the best device for most of our readers, particularly if you’re not wildly confident about your tech abilities.

Which Roku Should I Buy?

The Roku Ultra – the top of the line choice if you want to get Acorn TV on your TV (but the others are great, too)

There are several different models, with prices ranging from around $25-100 (though the price will vary by location and when you’re buying). The model you choose does NOT impact which British TV streaming services you’ll be able to use. You can watch Acorn and BritBox and Netflix and Amazon on any of them.

Below, we give you a simplified breakdown of the current models (as of Autumn 2020) and why you might choose them. You can click on their model names to visit Amazon and buy or look at them, but you can also find them in any Walmart, Best Buy, or Target. 

  • Roku Express HD – This is the most basic, budget-friendly model. It does NOT have the voice remote feature, the lost remote finder, built-in speakers, the extended wireless range (which is nice in bigger homes), or 4K Ultra HD.
  • Roku Premiere – This one is very much like the Express model, except it improves the picture quality with the addition of support for 4K Ultra HD (which only matters if the things you are viewing are available in 4K Ultra HD – you won’t notice a difference in older programmes).
  • Roku Streaming Stick – This extremely compact model includes 4K Ultra HD, but it also adds in long-range wireless (good for big houses) and voice control on the remote. Granted, if you’re Scottish, you may not find the voice control all that useful.
  • Roku Ultra 2020 – This is the “bells and whistles” model. The unit itself is a little bigger, but you get all the functions the others have…and then some. It includes a lost remote finder, 2 shortcut buttons you can personalise based on your favourite channels, and even a little headphone jack in the remote control so you can watch television quietly while someone else is sleeping.

What Do I Do Once I Have the Roku?

As technology goes, the Roku is remarkably easy to set up. There are two pieces of information you’ll want to have on hand when you get started:

  • The name of your wireless network, if you’re using one (and most people these days do)
  • The password for your wireless network

The Roku website has far better instructions that we could give, so I recommend clicking HERE and reading through their process as you go. They even have individual pages for the different models, since each one is a little different. 

Getting Channels Like Acorn TV & BritBox on Your Roku

Once your Roku is set up and able to connect to the internet, you can begin adding channels. The video below shows you how to find and add channels:

Channels like Acorn TV and BritBox have a subscription fee, so you will need to visit their websites to sign up for a membership, then go to your Roku and click on the channel to open it. The channel will ask you to log in, either using the username and password you set up on the channel’s website, or by using your computer to visit a certain address, then entering a set of letters they give you.

An Alternative to Setting Up Accounts With Each Streaming Service

The other alternative to that is signing up for an Amazon Prime membership (or just a Prime Video membership if you don’t want their free shipping benefits). Once you’re a member of Prime or Prime Video, you can use Amazon to subscribe to other channels like Acorn TV and BritBox. It also gives you access to a substantial library of British TV shows from Amazon (click HERE to view 460+ British TV Shows Available on Amazon Prime).

All your channels will then be managed inside your Amazon app and Amazon account – so you don’t have to set up accounts with the different services. There’s a “Manage My Channels” page where you can see which subscriptions are active, and start and stop them easily without the need to call or email anyone. Some people like that convenience. Either way, the programming is the same – you just watch it through Amazon instead of the actual Acorn TV or BritBox app.

Here are some of the channels you can get through Amazon if you prefer that approach. You can click their names to view the channels over on Amazon.

If you don’t have the slightest clue where to start or which services you should get, you might find our latest British TV Streaming Guide (US Edition) helpful. It’s basically a television guide to British shows on American streaming services (Canadian edition coming in 2021).

The guide has chapters for each of the major streaming services and it tells you what’s on offer, along with a short description of each show. In the back, you can use the index to look up a show and see which streaming services have it. You can GET IT HERE (or just read more about it).

Unclear? Let Us Hear Your Questions

Since we’ve grown up with technology, we realise a lot of this may seem clearer to us than to some of our readers with less tech experience. Did our instructions help you figure out to how get Acorn TV (or BritBox) on your TV? Was it confusing? We’re happy to amend this as needed to make sure it’s as clear as can be!
