It’s been a pretty cold, miserable winter, and the only thoughts keeping you going have probably been breaking through the icy cold and getting to the spring and into the glorious summer. Trips to the beach, sitting by the pool, girls trading in their North Face jackets for sundresses, jean shorts, and maxi dresses, temperatures in high double digits rather than in singles, or worse, negatives: Sounds perfect, right?
Well, Netflix just dropped a bomb on all of us and announced the premiere dates for some of its highest profile shows, the Monday after the weekend release of the highly anticipated (and as some, but not me, would consider underwhelming) “House of Cards” season three.
Instead of trips to the beach in June, put your orange jumpsuits back on and get ready for a trip to Litchfield Correctional Facility. That’s right, “Orange Is The New Black” is back on June 12, and, spoiler alert, they’re still in jail. Except for the one who stole the van and hit the other one with it. Oh wait, that’s an actual spoiler, my bad.
After you’re done saluting our great nation on July 4, prepare to salute your shorts (okay, it’s not “Salute Your Shorts,” whatever, sue me) and head back to Camp Firewood on July 17 for the highly anticipated “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp” eight-episode reboot/miniseries. It will feature most of the original cast, including Janeane Garofalo, David Hyde Pierce, Paul Rudd, Christopher Meloni, Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks, Bradley Cooper, and such newcomers as Jon Hamm, Jason Schwartzman, Kristen Wiig, John Slattery, Paul Scheer, and Rob Heubel.
Netflix is also dropping two more original series, “Between” and “Sense8,” this summer, as well as some brand new comedy specials, including “Chris D’Elia: Incorrigible,” featuring the incredibly underrated Chris D’Elia. I mean, the dude’s funny, he’s just been in every unfunny sitcom in the last five years. Work is work.
Either way, prepare to sit on your ass in front of your TV, computer, or some other Netflix-enabled device, crank up the air conditioner, and stock up on snacks. You’re gonna need ’em. Netflix has got you by the balls..
