We’ve had a lovely winter break here at Sprudge, where we have spent some 10 or so days doing a lot of nothing; it’s been great. It was comprised mostly of catching up on Netflix, if I can be perfectly honest. The new Black Mirror, Wormwood, re-watching Arrested Development, the second seasons of The Crown and The Magicians (I’m not entirely comfortable admitting that last one but it’s 2018 and I’ve decided to be more open), I’ve been wearing a hole in my broadband.
And it’s great to be back, don’t get me wrong, but with Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee now on Netflix, we may need to shutter for an extended weekend.
That’s right, all 59 of Seinfeld’s internet shorts about nothing but also with cars and coffee have officially moved from Sony’s streaming service Crackle to Netflix. As reported in Variety early last year, the move was part of a “multi-faceted production deal” that includes new episodes of Comedians to be released some time in 2018 as well as two stand-up specials exclusive to Netflix.
Already earning three Emmy nominations, Comedians has featured high profile guests like Will Farrell, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Stephen Colbert, and Barack Obama, and visited big name cafes including Intelligentsia, Coava, and the now-defunct Handsome Coffee. And now they are all on Netflix, which means you can stream them all back-to-back all the while being judged by Netflix for streaming them back-to-back.
So cancel your plans for tonight, you’ve got some TV to watch. Or maybe stream an episode while you’re Ubering to a bar. Then you can be a coffee person in a car getting Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
