The first teaser for Judd Apatow and Community ex Gillian Jacobs’ new Netflix series Love didn’t exactly give us a sense of the series, nor did its photos, so do two first trailers fare any better? Almost certainly, as the two-season anti-romantic comedy proves just as vulgar and funny as we’d hoped.
Sure, you might take Netflix at their word that Fuller House represents a real series produced by, starring, and intended for actual humans, but initial teasers weren’t exactly selling that well.

Daredevil fans finally got their wish with news that Season 2 would feature famous Marvel femme fatale Elektra, though character creator Frank Miller revealed himself none-too-enthused with the prospect, denouncing any take but his own.

Netflix has made no secret of how secret they keep any sort of “ratings” data for their original programming, a constant source of frustration to networks still under the Nielsen model, itself no longer a valid measurement of a given show’s audience.

Too often in TV, long-gestating revivals are punchlines until they’re not, the same way Arrested Development has warmed leftover Season 5 updates since 2013. Now, we may actually have details on the proposed story, including some surprisingly topical turns for Making a Murderer, Donald Trump, and a potentially familiar role for Jeffrey Tambor!
If you happen by a Twitter account, or at least a chatty co-worker sometime in the last few weeks, chances are you’ve heard the sound and the fury surrounding Netflix true crime documentary series Making a Murderer. Details and different players of the Avery-Dassey cases have been dissected all throughout the media in recent weeks, and now Investigation Discovery will get in on the action with a follow-up documentary special of its own.
Let’s be honest: the promotional lead-in to Netflix’s Fuller House revival of Full house has not been good. There was the uber-creepy first teaser, horribly misguided dance-break, and all the ridiculous Olsen news you can handle. Now, the first official photos have arrived of the Tanner (ahem, Fuller) clan reunited, and they look … like humans occupying communal space, sure!
