'Orange Is the New Black' is Netflix's only great drama Alison Herman, The Ringer The fourth season of the Netflix original series Orange Is the New Black starts streaming this weekend, and if you haven't watched your first episode yet, now's the time to catch up. The show is widely regarded as the best on the streaming service, or at least the best drama in the library. Alison Herman from The Ringer discusses that latter point and why Netflix's other dramas just don't stack up.
"Mistresses" is going on vacation! But just because the hit ABC show is taking a bit of a break doesn't mean fans of the sizzling summer series have to deprive themselves of drama. Until Season 4 of "Mistresses" makes its way back to the small screen on Aug. 8 audiences can spend their Monday night's binge watching other chaos-riddled shows and movies. All you need is a Netflix account!

We've known for a while now that Hulu and Netflix were both working on documentaries chronicling the ill-fated influencer trainwreck that was the Fyre Festvial. We also knew Netflix was set to debut its version on January 18th. Before it could do so, Hulu debuted its film earlier this week, getting its take on the event that never happened to viewers first.

It was subtle at first: a "have you seen this?" here; a "whoa, nostalgia trip!" there. As the days passed, the volume around Stranger Things ratcheted up considerably.
