Googles new feature will help you find something to watch

Google Search can now help you find your next binge. The company this morning announced a new feature that will make personalized recommendations of what to watch, including both TV shows and movies, and point you to services where the content is available. The feature is an expansion of Google’s existing efforts in pointing web searchers to informative content about TV shows and films. Already, a Google search for a TV show or movie title will include a “Knowledge Panel” box at the the top of the search results where you can read the overview, see the ratings and reviews, check out the cast and, as of spring 2017, find services where the show or movie can be streamed or …

Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein Is a Fun Mess

David Harbour, best known for playing supernaturally beleaguered small-town cop Jim Hopper, is now on to even stranger things.

Earlier this month, Chinese sci-fi blockbuster The Wandering Earth snuck onto the platform with nary a US …
