The Weekend Series: five Netflix Originals to look forward to in 2017

Since the massive success of House of Cards and Orange is the New Black, it seems like Netflix has only increased in quality when it comes to its original shows. As more an more people ditch television for streaming services, the demand for such quality material has risen exponentially. Thankfully, Netflix has consistently been up to the task of delivering, as evidenced by 2016’s output (Stranger Things, Master of None, The Crown). Our hopes for 2017 are set extraordinarily high, and we are already salivating at the thought of binge watching some great new content. Here are five shows we are chomping at the bit to watch this year. more

The Weekend Series: five things from our childhood that we miss

We don’t want to cause mass hysteria with this piece of news, but it’s too good not to share. We’ve heard a rumour that Pizza Hut might be bringing back its buffet restaurants. Yes, that’s right – a nearly forgotten relic of brighter days could be coming back. The Pizza Hut restaurant was a beloved eatery when we were kids and the rumoured resurrection of one of our cherished childhood haunts got us thinking about other things from our youth that we’d love to see make a comeback. We’ve managed to narrow it down to five, but beware – this one is heavy on the nostalgia. more
