Today, Netflix announces a streaming only plan for $7.99 per month. Consequentially, the cost other plans appear to be increasing by a dollar or so, depending on your plan. The plan announcement arrives on the heels of the recently announced Hulu Plus, which came out of the preview period earlier this week, also $7.99. Looks like a little healthy competition here, giving consumers more choice beyond cable and satellite. Score!
Guess what? Workaholics is a hit! I have some more good news, episode 3 drops tomorrow! Comedy Central was cool enough to show us the first three episodes of Workaholics and I must say that episode three is by far my favorite. Office Camp Out is a surreal homage to both Die Hard and Home Alone. It takes a lot to make me laugh out loud, and I can honestly say that I may have “piddled” a little during this episode. By the way, did you read our interview last week with Kyle and Adam? If not check it out HERE. They’re funny guys that deserve to have their words read.
“Workaholics” Comedy Central’s new show really finds it’s groove in this week’s episode “Office Campout”. The new episodes airs Wednesday, April 20th at 10:30PM.
The guys decide to crash at the office for a little “office camp out” while their house is fumigated, but their camp out is threatened when two burglars break into the office.
