fuckyeahpeeweeherman:

Pee-wee Herman’s next adventure is coming to Netflix.

Netflix says the film will be called “Pee-wee’s Big Holiday” and will feature Pee-wee taking his first-ever vacation after meeting a mysterious stranger.

Reubens created the quirky character in the 1980s when he was a member of the Groundlings improv group.

Netflix currently streams the Pee-wee films “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure” and “Big Top Pee-wee,” as well as the TV show “The Pee-wee Herman Show” and “Pee-wee’s Playhouse.”

“Pee-wee’s Big Holiday” is being produced by Judd Apatow and directed by John Lee. Reubens is writing the movie’s script with Paul Rust.

Netflix says production will begin this year.

Netflix responds to Verizon’s cease & desist letter. Somehow I doubt that Verizon will bite on your offer to work together to increase network transparency Netflix. Nice suggestion though.

Minimal Mac: TV Is Broken

minimalmac:

I say all of this to set up the fact that Beatrix has little idea of how traditional TV works and seeing her first real exposure to it was enlightening to say the least.

Party Down: Season 1

2010 Jul 5, 4:28

I just finished watching both seasons of this very funny and engaging TV series Id previously never heard of and I highly recommend it. Adam Scott stars as an actor who has given up on his dream of acting and joins a catering company working along side actors trying to make it in LA. There are many ties to Veronica Mars: the shows creator is Rob Thomas (the creator of Veronica Mars), the show features Ken Marino and Ryan Hansen, and has guest stars of Kristen Bell, Jason Dohring, and Enrico Colantoni, among others. It has many of the same talented people from Veronica Mars but Party Down is more like a smarter and funnier The Office given the relationship between Adam Scott and Lizzy Caplan and their subtle mockery of their wackier workmates and inept boss.

An excellent movie I'd never heard of. An entertaining and humorous sci-fi indie romance comedy. It stars Emma Caulfield (who I recognize as Anya from Buffy the Vampire Slayer) who obsesses over her timer, an implanted device that counts down to when she'll meet the love of her life. Thematically its similar to Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind which similarly adds a scifi device to society in order to examine the value of failed relationships on a persons life.

Hulu, a Victim of Its Own Success? | Epicenter

2009 May 12, 2:32If Hulu removes programming or Netflix doesn't make something available to watch instantly, its a safe bet it wasn't their idea to make their service worse. '"Whose retarded idea was that?" Well, not Hulu's. The move was taken at the network's request. Powerful forces are working against free, legal online TV - and the decision to pull Sunny may have made that show the canary in the server farm.'PermalinkCommentshulu business wired tv web internet

Netflix CSRF - Stolen Thoughts

2009 May 3, 10:36

Looking at the HTTP traffic of Netflix under Fiddler I could see the HTTP request that added a movie to my queue and didn't see anything obvious that would prevent a CSRF. Sure enough its pretty easy to create a page that, if the user has set Netflix to auto-login, will add movies to the user's queue without their knowledge. I thought this was pretty neat, because I could finally get people to watch Primer. However, when I searched for Netflix CSRF I found that this issue has been known and reported to Netflix since 2006. Again my thoughts stolen from me and the theif doesn't even have the common decency to let me have the thought first!

With this issue known for nearly three years its hard to continue calling it an issue. Really they should just document it in their API docs and be done with it. Who knows what Netflix based web sites and services they'll break if they try to change this behavior? For instance, follow this link to add my Netflix recommended movies to your queue.
