Can HBO keep up? Netflix will spend $5 billion on content in 2016

We always like to talk about how Netflix is ‘doubling down’ on original content, but truth be told, that doesn’t really capture the full scope of Netflix’s programming objectives.

True Detective Season 2 Review

Review: ‘True Detective’ season 2 caved under the pressure of topping season 1

Somewhere, deep within season 2 of True Detective, there was a show worth watching.
