Fans distraught after ‘Friends’ left Netflix

  • Post category:Netflix

2020 giveth, and it taketh away.

The new decade is sure to bring plenty of wonderful things along with it, but when 2020 arrived a few things were lost as well. Popular sitcom Friends ended its run on Netflix as the year came to a close, and fans of the series are feeling lost without easy access to binge the show.

As people began to realize the series was no longer available to stream, panic swept the web. Many online have been expressing their anxiety over the move.

I’m over 2020 already,” one fan wrote on Twitter. “They ripped #Friends right off of #Netflix mid episode and this is the rudest way to start the new year.”

Subscribers in the U.S. were particularly incensed after discovering that the series wasn’t removed everywhere, but it is not accessible to any U.S. streamers.

Wait, the freaking UK gets to watch ‘Friends’ on @netflix until MAY, but the US loses it TOMORROW,” Twitter user @grayskymornin wrote. “That’s seriously my last straw.”

Meanwhile, fans of the sitcom in other countries are celebrating their continued access.

“It’s 2020 and FRIENDS is still on Netflix,” Twitter user @FanistonGirl wrote. “Thank you Norway.”

Where to stream Friends now

Unfortunately, fans of Friends without a box set will be on an unwilling hiatus for the next several months. The popular series isn’t streaming anywhere in the near future, at least for viewers in the U.S. The series is set to return to streaming when HBO Max launches in mid-May 2020, but until then, viewers are out of luck. For those who can hold out until May, HBO Max will cost $14.99 for a monthly subscription.

‘Raising Dion’ Season 2: Renewed at Netflix & What We Know So Far

  • Post category:Netflix

It’s hard to suggest otherwise that we aren’t currently experiencing the golden age of superheroes in Hollywood. Netflix is certainly getting its own piece of that pie with titles like Umbrella Academy, and Raising Dion, amongst others. After a relatively successful first season for Raising Dion, fans will be wondering when we can expect to see the second season of the superhero drama. Allow us to help.

Raising Dion is a Netflix Original superhero-drama series based on the comic book series of the same name by author Dennis Liu. The series was originally adapted into a short film in 2015 and gained plenty of online popularity. It only took a couple of years later before Netflix ordered the series for themselves. Dennis Liu had plenty of involvement in the production of Raising Dion, he directed an episode of the series and also served as an executive producer.


Raising Dion Season 2 Netflix Renewal Status

Official Netflix Renewal Status: Renewed (Last Updated: 01/02/2019)

After a few months of waiting, Netflix finally announced that Raising Dion would be returning for a second season. In fact, it was the first official renewal of 2020.


Did Raising Dion need a second season?

100% Raising Dion needed a second season.

Aside from the cliffhanger ending showcasing who will be Dion’s enemy of season 2, our young superhero still needs to find a way to bring his dad home for good. The young man still has a lot to learn about his powers, and if he is eventually to become a superhero Dion will have to face plenty of challenges along the way.

There’s potential for Netflix to produce a very special series with Raising Dion. Like Stranger Things, subscribers become attached to the characters and actors that grow up right in front of our very eyes. Ja’Siah Young, the young actor that plays Dion, is only eight years old. If the story of Raising Dion can run for of least four seasons it’ll be fun to watch both the character and actor grow into a young man.

Did subscribers enjoy Raising Dion?

Going by the reaction on twitter plenty of subscribers loved Raising Dion!

Ratings

The series is currently sitting at a 7.1/10 on IMDb. Meanwhile, on Metacritic Raising Dion is currently at 61%.


When is the Netflix release date for Raising Dion season 2?

However long it takes Netflix to renew the series will impact the release date of the second season.

In the announcement of the season two renewal. Netflix announced that filming would begin at some point in 2020. That leads us to believe we may not see the return until at least early 2021.

Potential Release Date: Q1 or Q2 2021

How to watch the Taxslayer Gator Bowl online

  • Post category:Netflix

In a clash of programs looking to maintain momentum, the Indiana Hoosiers (8-4), representing the Big 10, take on SEC delegate Tennessee Volunteers (7-5) in Jacksonville for the Taxslayer Gator Bowl.

HOW TO STREAM TAXSLAYER GATOR BOWL
SLING TVTRY NOW
HULU WITH LIVE TVTRY NOW

Head coach Tom Allen has Indiana leaning forward into progress, finishing the regular season with its first eight-win season since 1993. The defensive-minded Hoosiers (No. 37 nationally in total defense) will try to match their school-record nine wins by winning their first bowl win since 1991. When QB Michael Penix Jr. went down for the season with a shoulder injury, Peyton Ramsey (184-266, 2,227 yards, 13 TDs, 4 interceptions) held it down. WR Whop Philyor leads the team with 69 catches for 1,001 yards and five scores.

Tennessee QB Jarrett Guarantano, who has been in head coach Jeremy Pruitt’s doghouse at various points throughout the season, threw for 1,937 yards and 16 touchdowns. WR Jauan Jennings caught 57 passes for 942 yards and eight scores. Jennings may be the team’s leader, but he isn’t their best player. DE Darrell Taylor is a fantastic athlete that turns speed to power off the edge at a high level.

Here’s how to watch the Taxslayer Gator Bowl.

  • When: 7pm ET, Thursday, Jan. 2 
  • Where: TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville, Florida
  • Streaming: ESPN

How to stream Indiana vs. Tennessee live: Watch the Gator Bowl

The following services offer a one-week trial and a way to catch this week’s college football bowl action. 

1) Sling TV

Sling offers a ton of live sports. Sling TV provides two base channel package options, each priced at $25 per month. Sling Orange includes three ESPN channels – including ESPN3, which will simulcast ABC sports broadcasts, while Sling Blue includes sports channels like NFL Network, NBCSN, and local channels. If you’re Team “Why Not Both,” Sling Orange + Blue combines the two for just $45 per month. Sports Extra: Sling Blue ($10 per month) also includes NFL RedZone.

Other features include a Free Cloud DVR tier for all subscribers (allowing 10 hours of recording a month), the ability to record all live linear channels, and no VOD preemption on any channels.
 

How to use AirTV with Sling

AirTV solves one of Sling’s biggest problems: The inability to receive all of your local channels. By purchasing a basic AirTV for $79.99 or the AirTV Player for $119.99, you can merge those local channels into your Sling TV (or on your mobile device if you have the basic AirTV). As the Daily Dot wrote in its AirTV review, “It’s practically magic.”

The basic AirTV is a dual-tuner streaming device, while the AirTV Player is basically an upgraded Chromecast that has Netflix preinstalled. You’ll still need to own an HD antenna, because even though AirTV gets you access to your local channels, it doesn’t actually physically show them to you.

But AirTV—which has no monthly fee—serves to strengthen one of Sling’s biggest weaknesses compared to other live streaming services like Hulu with Live TV and YouTube TV (which have a number of local channels).

2) Hulu with Live TV

Taxslayer Gator Bowl: Notes

Tennessee edge rusher Darrell Taylor isn’t Chase Young, which is to mean he’s not quite the finished product either Young or perhaps Zack Baun is for now. However, no one in the country plays with more hunger and violence. He’s not quite the run defender he will eventually be, but Indiana’s offensive survival will be centered on whether it can contain Taylor.

Grace and Frankie Season 6 Trailer: Welcome to Shark Tank!

  • Post category:Netflix

Grace and Frankie are leaving no stone unturned in the penultimate season of the Netflix comedy series. 

The official trailer for Grace and Frankie Season 6 shows Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin’s characters pitching a brand new invention on the beloved ABC series, Shark Tank. 

Mark Cuban, Barbara Corcoran, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Greiner, and Rohan Oza listen to their pitch, which is for a contraption that helps lift senior citizens off the bowl.

Grace ad Frank

They are one of the most dynamic duos on TV, and it sounds like their invention may well be a hit with their target audience. 

But this wouldn’t be Grace and Frankie without some family drama, and that is on full display when Frankie drops the bombshell that Grace has married Nick. 

gaf 1

While Grace may be blissfully unaware of his true nature, it seems everyone is on to Nick. Heck, the trailer strongly suggests Grace is just one of Nick’s three brides. 

Even after all these seasons, Grace and Frankie continues to deliver some vintage drama, laughs, and lots of heartwarming moments. 

While Netflix may be on a bit of a cancellation spree of late, Grace and Frankie has already been renewed for a seventh — and final season — meaning that the end is being mapped out right now. 

gaf 2

By the time Grace and Frankie concludes, it will be Netflix’s longest-running original series ever, coming in well ahead of Orange is the New Black. 

“We are both delighted and heartbroken that Grace and Frankie will be back for its seventh, though final, season,” Fonda and Tomlin said in a statement when the show’s endgame was announced. 

“We’re so grateful that our show has been able to deal with issues that have really connected to our grand generation. And their kids, and amazingly their kids as well.”

gaf 3

“We’ll miss these two old gals, Grace and Frankie, as much as many of their fans will, but we’ll still be around. We’ve outlasted so many things — just hope we don’t outlast the planet.”

For now, watch the official Season 6 trailer and hit the comments with your thoughts on it. We will have a full review of the sixth season ahead of the January 15 return date set by Netflix.

Call the Midwife Season 9: Release Date & Where to Watch

  • Post category:Netflix
Season 9 preview for Call the Midwife
Season 9: Things are changing at Nonnatus House

If you’ve been dying to get back to Nonnatus House, you’re in luck! We’re fast approaching the Call the Midwife Season 9 release date.

When Does Season 9 of Call the Midwife Air, & Where Can I Watch It?

In the UK, Series 9 will begin airing on 5th January 2020. The new season will have 8 hour-long episodes, not including the Christmas special that aired back in December.

In the US, expect to see it on PBS after the 29th of March. Local listings can vary, so check with your local PBS affiliate to verify the precise time. It’s unknown whether it will make its way to Netflix along with the others, but we would expect that to happen sometime after the PBS air date.

The truly wonderful news is that Call the Midwife has been re-commissioned through Series 11, so there will be at least two more seasons to look forward to after this one.

No one knows how long it will continue after that, but we do know that the 1970s were a transformative time in terms of how and where babies were born in the UK. It’s definitely not a series that could continue in its present form up through present day. 

 

What’s Happening in Season 9 of Call the Midwife?

Miriam Margoyles as Mother Mildred in Call the Midwife

After the 2019 Call the Midwife Christmas special, we see the team returning to Poplar. In the words of writer Heidi Thomas:

As the unfamiliar terrain of the Hebrides stretches the team to the utmost at Christmas, their return to Poplar sees them braving a landscape that feels suddenly unfamiliar. Budgets are being cut, and hospitals reorganised. Terraced houses are being demolished, and traditional family structures torn apart. There are wrecking balls everywhere, and it’s up to Sister Julienne, and the midwives and medics of Nonnatus House, to help find a way out of the rubble. When they themselves come under threat, their job becomes even harder.

By Series 9, we find ourselves in 1965, and the women of Nonnatus House (and of course, Dr. Turner) are dealing with patients facing cancer, diphtheria, dementia, fistula, and homelessness.

Stephen McGann plays Dr. Turner

Episode 1

The series opens in 1965 with the nation mourning the loss of Winston Churchill. It’s a sign we’re entering a new era of change, and the midwives won’t be immune to that. Episode 1 sees Dr. Turner and Nurse Crane struggling to deal with an outbreak of diphtheria. At the same time, Fred finds a baby in a dustbin, and everyone scrambles to find the mother.

Episode 2

In this episode, we see the Nonnatus House ladies during Lent and the leadup to Mother’s Day. Aside from giving up cigarettes and sugar, someone has also been stealing their milk. When they catch the young thief, she explains she’s stealing it for her pregnancy. With some investigation, they find out it’s not her first pregnancy as claimed, and she’s also suffering from a sexually-transmitted disease. 

On a more happier note, a romance is blooming…

 

As for us, we’d love to see Nurse Trixie pursuing her talent in medicine. She’s been a stable presence throughout, and she’s shown real aptitude for her vocation. Perhaps we’ll see her embracing that and becoming more of a leader or even a doctor?

When asked about the struggles characters will face in Season 9, executive producer Pippa Harris said:

I don’t want to go into too many details and ruin anything, but there are certainly personal dilemmas and choices for Lucille and Valerie, and Sister Julienne comes up against something she has very little control over. It’s interesting to watch her for once not quite know where to turn.

 

Who’s Returning for Season 9 of Call the Midwife?

The Call the Midwife team faces new challenges in Season 9

Creator Heidi Thomas said of the new season, “In series nine there’s nobody new. The cast has been very stable, which is nice because I get to know them all well. And they are like a family.”

Having debuted in the 2018 Christmas special, Miriam Margolyes is back as Mother Mildred. Also returning to the show for the Christmas special and for series nine are Jenny Agutter (Sister Julienne), Helen George (Trixie), Linda Bassett (Nurse Crane), Judy Parfitt (Sister Monica Joan), Fenella Woolgar (Sister Hilda), Ella Bruccoleri (Sister Frances), Laura Main (Shelagh Turner), Jennifer Kirby (Valerie), Leonie Elliott (Lucille), Stephen McGann (Dr Turner), Max Macmillan (Timothy), Cliff Parisi (Fred), Annabelle Apsion (Violet), Georgie Glen (Miss Higgins), Trevor Cooper (Sgt Woolf) and Daniel Laurie (Reggie).

We’d love to see Miranda Hart back as Chummy, but it looks like we may be out of luck for now.
