Breathe a sigh of relief, planet Earth, because Netflix is about to make things a whole lot better.

According to an announcement on their blog, “Netflix members worldwide can now download in addition to stream great series and films at no extra cost.”

This means that if you’re about to get on a plane or you’re in the middle of an internet outage, you can still binge Stranger Things, Orange is the New Black, Narcos, and host of other Neflix original movies, as well as non-Netflix produced content.

As of now, it looks like the feature is only available on iOS and Android, no desktop. But it is available right now, so update your app and live free!

Fuller House, the Full House reunion series that you just had to have, premiered a mere nine months ago, and today, Netflix has released the trailer for the follow-up. That's right, Fuller House will be returning for another round of family-friendly high jinks on December 9. 

All your favorites are returning: Stephanie, DJ, Kimmy, and Danny, sporting a new, funky midlife crisis. So if you've been missing the milkman, the paperboy, and/or the evening TV, Fuller House is back because, let's face it, you just had to have this.

Just in time for the holidays, Fuller House season two will drop all at once on December 9, so be sure to carve out some time in your busy holiday schedule to binge on what might be Netflix's most popular show. No, seriously, Fuller House season one brought in over 14-million viewers, which is more eyes on the screen than Game of Thrones or Walking Dead. Yup, an estimated 14.4 million people just had to have this thing, and because of that, we're all getting more. 

Just goes to show you, most people just want some light situational comedy, not humans being hacked to death. Go figure.

Mike Colter announced the release date of Luke Cage at the very end of this video about the premier of another Daredevil series:



The Twitter account for Luke Cage really cuts to the chase though when sharing the video. Looks like you can expect to have Luke Cage available for your bingewatching pleasure on September 30 this year.

Yup. As fate would see fit, it just so happens you've only scratched the surface of highly refined, impressively customizable, Netflix-binge-a-thon experience.

Netflix usually operates with a user-navigation system configured such that you can search for shows and/or movies by titles or common genres--Romance, Action & Adventure. Thing is, there's a hidden way to work around this.

The URL for something simple as 'Documentaries" is http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/6839; but by changing the numerical segment at the end the URL you can discover 'Controversial Foreign Movies' (2273) and a whole mess of other uber specialized genres.

This little Netflix hack opens up a world of possibilities, and all cheesy slogans aside, there's about to be something for everyone looking to kick back and check out with this clutch streaming service.

The Netflix documentary series, 'Making A Murderer,' has been nothing if not a productivity-robbing, cultural sensation since it dropped in December.

If you're one of those cave-dwellers who resides under a rock you should know that the documentary focuses on Steven Avery, a Wisconsin man, who might've been framed for crimes he didn't commit a few times.

The frontman for The Black Keys, Dan Auerbach, and his new blues-rock band, The Arcs took the global bingeing efforts to a new high with their recent released track, "Lake Superior."

The song references the Steven Avery criminal case, and the perverse, if not corrupt way the police and the criminal justice system considered as an entity, handled it.

Auerbach's vocals, as usual, don't disappoint; and manage to carry through song, the full emotional depth of this emotionally-riveting case.

Netflix changes the sexist, culturally insensitive Pocahontas description.

Dr. Adrienne K., owner of the Native Appropriations blog, just wanted to watch a movie, and it led to Netflix changing the description for Pocahontas.

While scrolling through Netflix, she came upon the 1995 Disney film and immediately found the description sexist and disrespectful of native peoples.

Here's the original description:



Dr. Adrienne took to Twitter for a short appeal:





And then wrote a longer one on her blog.

...[T]hese movies all have well developed romance plot lines, but their (white, male) protagonists get to save things, fight people, have adventures, and be 'lord of the jungle'–they are not defined by their romantic relationships in the film.


Br> After the post and the sizable Internet agreement, Netflix actually responded directly to Dr. Adrienne and admitted fault.



The new description tells a decidedly different story.
