The 5 Best Comedy Specials On Netflix Right Now

So I don’t like movies that much, and I’ve run through all of “Orange is the New Black,” “Archer,” “Adventure Time,” “Breaking Bad,” “American Horror Story” (not season 3, I will not), “House of Cards,” “Orphan Black,” “Doctor Who,” and “New Girl.” So I sometimes find myself wanting to watch something for only an hour and also wanting to laugh: Enter Netflix comedy specials.

7 Ways “House Of Cards” Could Be The Best Comedy On TV

house-of-cards

A lot of people have been watching the melodramatic political series “House of Cards” on Netflix (which I believe is a remake of the highly acclaimed ”How a Bill Becomes a Law” episode of “Schoolhouse Rock”), and many of these viewers are complaining about how silly it is. They’re not wrong, but they’re failing to see the opportunity here. With a few small changes, “House of Cards” could go from a so-so drama to one of the greatest comedies of our time.

If you read Piper Kerman’s memoir Orange Is The New Black or binge-watched the Netflix adaptation (and who hasn’t done that?), chances are you have wondered about the real-life woman behind Nora (in the book) and Alex Vause (the character in the show). For the first time ever, 51-year-old novelist and PhD student Catherine Cleary Wolters has spoken to Vanity Fair about her relationship with Kerman, their mutually-assured-destruction as cash smugglers for an African drug lord, and her side of their love story.

Like many of you, one of my favorite new shows from the last year is Netflix’s “Orange is the New Black,” based on the memoir of the same name (by Piper Kermen) that I read a couple of years ago. While I enjoyed the book, I love that the show has become a vehicle for telling all the prisoners’ stories, not just the main protagonist’s, and as a result, I think it’s one of the most successful character-driven narratives on the small screen. All of the characters are interesting and engaging to watch, so it’s hard to pick a favorite, but I have been totally fascinated by Pennsatucky, the meth-addicted Christian evangelist played by Taryn Manning. Last week, I got a chance to sit down for a few minutes with Manning at an event honoring beauty industry icon Beth Minardi (who gave Taryn that awesome shade of auburn in the photo above), and she gave me further insight into what makes Pennsatucky tick. Check out Q&A after the jump! Keep reading »

What Happens Every Time You Log On Netflix

I don’t know about you guys, but I always have big plans when I click on my Netflix bookmark. I’m going to finally watch that documentary that will make me sound smart when I reference it at parties! I’m going to get caught up on the heavy British drama that’s supposedly really good! I’m going to check out that offbeat comedy I jotted down the name of months ago! But I’ve found that no matter my intentions, all of my Netflix surfing always plays out in the exact same way. As follows: Keep reading »

I’ve been willfully chained to my television for the past week, tearing through episodes of Jenji Kohan’s latest, “Orange Is The New Black” — and I highly recommend you do the same. For the uninitiated, this is the story of Piper Chapman, a bougie, well-meaning white lady who is plopped into a minimum security prison for a year to serve time for a brief incident as a mule for her drug-trafficking ex-girlfriend.  I was reluctant at first to watch this show, my mind clouded with the memory of the last few seasons of “Weeds,” but after some urging from a trusted friend, I settled in and was instantly hooked. Here’s why.
