Netflix Stream TeamI've been singing the praises of the Netflix Original Series, VOLTRON: LEGENDARY DEFENDER ever since I went behind the scenes at DreamWorks Animation back in early May.  While it was pretty obvious from the get-go (Playmates Toys' new action figures won't be out until 2017), it's now 100% official that the second season of VOLTRON: LEGENDARY DEFENDER will be hitting Netflix later this fall. At San Diego Comic-Con International this afternoon, executive producer Joaquim Dos Santos, co-executive producer Lauren Montgomery and writer Tim Hedrick made it official, while joined by surprise guest Steven Yeun (THE WALKING DEAD), who voices Keith the pilot of the red lion.

Netflix Stream TeamI'm completely digging this. With a soundtrack of Ol' Dirty Bastard's "Shimmy Shimmy Ya" setting the tone, the trailer for the Netflix Original Series, MARVEL's LUKE CAGE is here, and Mike Colter is busting bad guys (and abusing cars) in the process. Spun-off of MARVEL's JESSICA JONES and eventually followed by MARVEL's IRON FIST (he's in this trailer), the small-screen connection to the MARVEL Cinematic Universe continues to build. Check out the trailer below (not kid-friendly!), and look for all episodes to begin streaming exclusively on Netflix, September 30, 2016.

Netflix #StreamTeamAs we get ready to close the books on June and move into the second half of the year on an official basis, my friends at Netflix are looking toward the future, while also keeping a keen eye on where things are in the present. Earlier this month, a question was posited: Where is the craziest place that you've gone to sneak-in a Netflix fix? They even whipped-up a little chart with some common locations for sneaky streamers, and I'll fully admit to matching #1... perhaps while in the process of #2. Yes, I've maybe watched a show on the throne, but I don't make a habit of it - most of my viewing is actually right here in my office at Rock Father HQ, but it you have an interesting locale for streaming, I'd like to hear about it! So what's new from Netflix? A lot of stuff, but I'm focusing on a few pics from our family to yours, as well as one piece of news that I'm really digging...

Stream TeamRemember back in January when I wrote about Netflix "doubling-down" on original content for kids and families? Today comes news that keeps that train rollin', with five new original series being announced, along with word that KONG: KING OF THE APES will be back for a second season in 2017. Among the new programs are SKYLANDERS ACADEMY (bound to be huge and featuring fellow "Rock Father" James Hetfield of METALLICA doing a featured voice!), LLAMA LLAMA, SPIRIT: RIDING FREE, HILDA and SPY KIDS: MISSION CRITICAL. Check out details on all of these new shows below...

Netflix #StreamTeamWhen it comes to television in 2016, retro vibes and nostalgia are powerful thing - a trend that's been gathering steam in recent years, often resulting in that perfect emotional mix that can find an updated property becoming cross-generational. As a member of the Netflix #StreamTeam, I've written about the subject at length, with the crew at Netflix leading the charge toward co-viewing and bringing families back together to enjoy the shared experience of something new... but rooted in something old. For the second time this year, I found myself face-to-face with familiar characters from my own youth, first with FULLER HOUSE, and now with something a little closer to my heart... VOLTRON. I'd been invited to DreamWorks Animation in Glendale, California for an early look at VOLTRON: LEGENDARY DEFENDER, and a meeting with the talent and creatives behind the show. It was also a chance to get involved... if only for a moment.

Netflix Stream TeamLast week, I found myself in Glendale, California, reporting for duty at DreamWorks Animation on assignment for the Netflix #StreamTeam, all for a gig very near and dear to my heart... that of a kid that grew up in the 80s. Technically, I'm not allowed to tell you the specifics of what I was doing, but I don't think I'll get in too much trouble if I admit that yes, I have seen VOLTRON: LEGENDARY DEFENDER... I just can't tell you anything about the Netflix Original Series other than that it's streaming on June 10, and today the first official trailer has been released. Whether you loved VOLTRON back in '84, or you're just getting involved, I'd like to hear your thoughts on the video below...
