Pop Culture Love Letter: Star Trek and Sherlock Gag Reels, Gilmore Girls Debut, Say No to Cable Packages and Just Get HBO

Netflix has announced that all nine seasons of Gilmore Girls will debut October 1, and the Internet went crazy. Buzzfeed has the best Twitter reactions.

Time Warner is finally weakening and considering setting HBO and Showtime loose to offer stand-alone service to consumers instead of us having to shell out $$$ for a hundred channels we never watch.

Mindy Kaling posted the best teaser yet for The Mindy Project season 3 – this ably captures the series’ comic vibe, and if you’re not watching TMP yet, is the only one I’ve seen that will likely convince you to try it.

Sherlock released a short blooper reel and it is gold.

A full gag reel for Star Trek Into Darkness popped up, much longer and therefore better.

Netflix and the Ghosts in the Machine

“Let me get philosophical for a minute. In a human world, life is made interesting by serendipity,” Yellin told me. “The more complexity you add to a machine world, you’re adding serendipity that you couldn’t imagine. Perry Mason is going to happen. These ghosts in the machine are always going to be a by-product of the complexity. And sometimes we call it a bug and sometimes we call it a feature.”
