The 10 Most Iconic Movie Cars

The 10 Most Iconic Movie Cars Many people live vicariously through movies. It always helps when audience members have something to relate to, whether it be a character, situation, or time period.

But the show has been slowly racking up awards and appearing on “best of” lists, and now Netflix has officially ...

It turns out the end of the world is a lot trippier and sexier than we anticipated. But it’s not really the apocalypse as the new Starz series Now Apocalypse implies. It’s just the romantic trials and tribulations of the millennials at the center of the series created by Gregg Araki and executive produced by Steven Soderbergh that seem world-ending — and peppered with an odd amount of hallucinations and monsters.

Netflix ‘Space Force’ TV Series Will Reunite Steve Carell and ‘Office’ Creator Greg Daniels

Donald Trump’s Space Force idea sounded like (and still sounds like) a joke, so making a Space Force comedy series only seems fair. Netflix will launch Space Force to series soon, reuniting Steve Carell and The Office creator Greg Daniels in the process. The show will be a workplace comedy focusing on the people who have been tasked with making Trump’s goofy-as-hell Space Force idea a reality.
