Lockheed confident of being able to build a 4600 mph spyplane drone in 2018

Netflix's new Drew Barrymore zombie show 'Santa Clarita Diet' is a gory, disgusting mess

Thankfully for "Santa Clarita Diet," Netflix is about binge-watching and there's a marked improvement from the first episode to the second, which are both directed by  Ruben Fleischer ("Zombieland"),  and that may hook viewers.
