Netflix fans get a long-awaited net-fix as Orange is the New Black returns

It may have been the revival of Arrested Development and the U.S. version of House of Cards that put the online streaming service Netflix on the map as an alternative venue for "TV" content, but it's another series -- Orange is the New Black -- that solidified Netflix's status as a creator of truly original content. For fans of the edgy comedy-drama set inside a women's prison, the wait is finally over -- a new season of 13 episodes will arrive on Netflix on Friday, June 6. Let the binge-watching begin!

Summer's just the ticket

At last, the outdoor theatre season gets underway Thursday, June 5 on two fronts -- at the bucolic St. Norbert home of Shakespeare in The Ruins where it is presenting The Comedy of Errors and under the Rainbow Stage dome in Kildonan Park where Manitobans will be taking A Closer Walk With Patsy Cline. The stage forecast throughout looks favourably hot with a pair of big-name Rainbow shows -- The Producers and Disney's The Little Mermaid -- along with a couple of must-see indoor touring blockbusters -- War Horse and Wicked. And then there is the best theatre party of the year, the Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival, promising a record 178 shows.

Snowden and Stone could be a cinematic match

Can American NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden help film director Oliver Stone recapture his movie mojo? Stone has said he plans to adapt the book The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World's Most Wanted Man by Guardian writer Luke Harding. It's been 23 years since Stone scandalized America with JFK, and it's about time Stone returned to making films that challenged the authorities instead of viewers' sense of taste with stinkers like Alexander and Any Given Sunday.

Local summer suds on tap at Flatlander's

There's nothing better than an ice-cold beer on a warm day. And while hop-heads will be far from a patio, the Flatlander's Beer Festival will see hundreds of beers being poured at the MTS Centre -- some for the first time in our province. Local breweries Half Pints Brewing Co. and Fort Garry Brewing will be featuring new summer beers at the festival; check out Half Pints' Phil's Pils and Fort Garry's Raspberry Quencher for fine summer sipping. Sports fans: the World Cup will be played on the big screen Thursday, June 12, as will Game 5 of the Stanley Cup finals (in necessary) on Friday, June 13. Visit www.flatlandersbeerfest.com for more details.
