“Right this very instant, somewhere out there the Downton Abbey movie is being made. Perhaps the Crawley family is having a hushed conversation as cameras circle in. Or maybe the cast and crew are on a dainty craft services break!

Regardless, the Downton Abbey movie is happening. And we have no release date.

Lucky for those of us with 20th century England fantasies that need tending, Netflix’s new film The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society is a two-hour episode of Downton Abbey—figuratively speaking—based on Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows’ book of the same name.

Set in the years following World War II, the film follows the lives of members of a book club formed during the German occupation of Guernsey, an island in the English Channel off the coast of Normandy. Overwhelmed by the bleak and oppressive realities of Nazi presence, residents of the island begin secretly meeting to add some much needed levity and love to their days, creating the “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society” book club in the process.

However, the formation of the club is not the film’s main focus. The true star of the story is found in writer Juliet Ashton, portrayed by the illustrious Lily James—and known to many as Downton‘s Lady Rose MacClare……………”

“Dogs is the smartest six-hour Netflix binge anyone can commit to. It’s also, notably, a safe watch for all dog-lovers.

If you, like anyone who has ever owned and/or loved a dog, saw the Dogs announcement and immediately wondered if any of the documentary’s sweet good boys and girls die, Netflix has an answer for you. No. No one dies.

Netflix confirmed the happy detail on Twitter.

“NO DOGS DIE IN ANY EPISODE OF DOGS,” the tweet reads, in all-caps.

The six episodes focus on individual stories that explore the impacts that canines can have on human lives. It’s an exploration of the bonds between the two species, and the tremendous impact that such bonds can have.

As Mashable’s Ali Foreman wrote in our review: “Dogs consistently details how we can help man’s best friend, but it shines when displaying how man’s best friend can help us. As scene-after-scene leaves you beaming with joy, you’ll almost definitely start itching to [adopt a pup of your own].”

All six episodes of Dogs came to Netflix on Nov. 16. You can watch them now right here.”

‘A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding’ trailer is here for all your goofy princess fantasies

“Getting married is hard. Getting married to a prince? Even harder (I assume!).

Last year’s silly breakout Netflix holiday movie is getting a sequel: A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding. 

The trailer shows Amber (Rose McIver) having to adjust to all the problems of marrying into a royal family — paparazzi, plenty of opinions, and even having to give up her beloved blog. That’s where she does her journalism.

Honestly, the whole thing looks pretty low-rent, but also a perfectly fun to way to kill two hours this holiday season.

You already know if this movie is for you or not. If it is, it hits Netflix Nov. 30.”
