9 December 2016 8:16 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

MythBusters” fans can now get their Build Team fix on with Netflix’s new series “White Rabbit Project,” which continues the trio’s science-entertainment adventures just in time for the holidays. It’s the kind of amusing show that you can co-view with your older/younger/dyspeptic family member with whom you may not have the best conversations, sans the unifying aid of TV.

Tory Belleci, Kari Byron, and Grant Imahara are back in fine form and as charismatic as ever, getting a strong introduction thanks to a snappy synth theme song. Unfortunately, the overall formula for the series is difficult to pull off. We don’t envy whoever had to conceive of a new science-based show to succeed “MythBusters,” which arguably had one of the simplest and yet satisfying premises in this genre: »

7 New Netflix Shows to Binge Watch in December 2016, and The Best Episodes of Each

1 December 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

1. “Trollhunters” Season 1 (available December 23)

Why Should I Watch It? Two big reasons: First, the director of “Pan’s Labyrinth,” Guillermo del Toro, created “Trollhunters,” an animated event series about a teenager who discovers a mystical amulet that unveils a secret civilization of trolls beneath his hometown. If the Oscar nominee himself isn’t enough, there’s another creative force — in addition to the impressive voice cast of Kelsey Grammer, Ron Perlman and Charlie Saxton — to pay attention to: Said teenager is voiced by Anton Yelchin, in what’s being billed his final role. After debuting two episodes at New York Comic-Con in October, del Toro said he never even discussed replacing Yelchin. “We didn’t go into a meeting,” del Toro said. “We didn’t have a conference. […] He was a great guy to work with, he was proud of what he did, we were proud of what he did. »

Among the original programming it has peddled to its subscribers, Netflix has picked up a number of sequel series, revivals, and new seasons of cancelled shows. Now, with its latest announcement, it has extended the lifespan of another TV hit -- sort of. The subscription video on-demand service will be the home of White Rabbit Project, an unscripted series that will star former Mythbusters “interns” Kari Byron, Tory Belleci, and Grant Imahara.

The White Rabbit Project takes its name from the so-called “rabbit hole” its hosts will descend into as they explore interesting pop culture, science and history topics. According to Deadline, subjects covered by White Rabbit will include “jailbreaks, superpower technology, heists and crazy world war two weapons.”

Byron, Belleci, and Imahara gained fame as the three lab rats who helped Mythbusters hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman build and test the contraptions they needed to test out common theories and urban legends. »
