Oh hi new thread smell!

A place for shows presented as streaming only — for example Netflix Originals, Amazon Prime Streaming, Hulu Plus, Yahoo, and other sites. (Note: Shows that are part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe shall be discussed in that thread.)
Spoiler Policy: Spoiler font two weeks for content presented all at once. Content presented as weekly episodes may be discussed with no restrictions as it is released.
IS IT JUNE 5 YET.
Oh, that looks good. I will have to add it to my queue.
1. I think I have discovered a flaw in the spoiler policy- I have no idea when things were released-- does it say on Netflix?
2. Is anyone watching Grace & Frankie? I soured a little when I read that Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda were making the same as Sam Waterston and Martin Sheen, despite clearly being the leads, but I am enjoying it, especially Lily Tomlin!
I am watching Grace & Frankie and enjoying it. Seventy is the new fifty, eh? I like all the kids, too. Sometimes it's a little... too, too, but who cares. It's good fun.
Irish convict; so hot.
My daughter recommended Grace & Frankie. She doesn't particularly care for Jane Fonda, but she said Lily Tomlin was a gas.
Trivia Note: Lily Tomlin was a cheerleader in HS.
Also, when she and Tom Waits worked on Altman's Short Cuts they played a married couple and every night Tom would call her in character and tell her about his day (as a chauffeur driver). She said it was the sweetest, most endearing thing and she looked forward to the call every night.
OK, Community, that's the stuff.
I'm willing to try getting into Daredevil, but I don't TV much, anymore. The weather channel tends to play non-stop on my TV. Except when my roommate is awake and then it's Forensic Files. Those are pretty much the only reasons we keep cable. I'm ready to ditch it and move on to Netflix (which I already have, but haven't gotten into any of their original programming, yet.) Of course, that's MCU (and a different thread), but you can see where my intentions are. More TV! At a cheaper cost.
We're sitting on the last ep of Daredevil S1, 'cause once we watch it we won't have any more, till they get on the stick and make S2. We may get desperate enough to watch all of S1 again before S2 is in release. Once or twice.
There's something really compelling about the slow storytelling. It's not slow when you're watching, it doesn't lag, doesn't lose your attention. But the action moves slowly enough you can process while you're watching, and a bit more deeply than I've grown used to doing on network--and even cable--tv. So far, they're hitting all the notes right, and H and I are thoroughly hooked.
