This new feature will help the viewers pick an episode to watch when they are not sure which episode to watch. The test of this pilot will include shows like The Office, New Girl, Our Planet and Arrested Development and more.

Netflix spokesperson confirmed the experiment in a statement – “We are testing the ability for members to play a random episode from different TV series on the Android mobile app. These tests typically vary in length of time and by region, and may not become permanent.”

There will be a new row in the Netflix menu which called “Play a Random Episode.” Once the viewers click on a thumbnail, a random episode plays. If you want to test this feature, look for a red “shuffle” icon.

The Android Police publication, which monitors Netflix developments on Android devices was the first to notice this experiment.

This new feature might be related to Disney’s streaming service.

After 3 Years of Marriage – Adele and Her Husband Separated

Simon Konecki and Adele goes back to 2011 when they started dating, in 2012 they has their son born and has been married since 2016. Although Adele is a world wide star, she kept her private life outside the camera eye and confirmed her marriage to Simon only in March 2017.

On April 19th, Adele’s crew announced to the Associated Press –
“Adele and her partner have separated. They are committed to raising their son together lovingly. As always, they ask for privacy. There will be no further comment.”
Adele is known for her private for all the staff regarding her relationships. In her Grammy Winning Speech she said – ‘Grammys, I appreciate it. The Academy, I love you. My manager, my husband and my son — you’re the only reason I do it.’

On December 2016, in an interview with Vanity Fair Adele shared about her husband –
“I have no desire to be with anyone in show business, because we all have egos. He’s not threatened by any stage of my life that I’m going for, and that’s an amazing thing. It’s the most serious relationship I’ve ever been in; we’ve got a child together and we live together.
After releasing my first album, all the other people I ever was with were so insecure about themselves – they couldn’t handle it at all. When I try to describe this to my friends they don’t always get it, because they go out with people that are our age, but Simon is already who he is, and I’m still becoming who I’m going to be. He’s confident. He’s perfect.”

Do you think she will find someone like Simon?

The Spiral Symbol of the White Walker Explained by G.O.T Writer

Despite of all the happy reunions throw-out the premier of GOT season 8, one of the most disturbing scenes of the episode was the last one where Lord Umber is in the middle of limbs arranged in a circle pattern.
The true fans of the show noticed this symbol is pretty familiar and it’s already been seen in different places… usually bad places…
Season 3, episode 3 – Jon saw this symbol made by horses’ parts.
Season 6, episode 5 – Bran saw this symbol made by stones when the Children of the Forest made the first Night King.
In the first episode of season 8, we saw the survivors of the wall crush (Dolorous Edd, Tormund, Beric Dondarrion and more) conclude that the Night King is trying to send a message using this symbol.

Dave Hill, the writer of the first episode explained the meaning in an interview with the New York Post –
“As we saw with Bran and the Three-Eyed Raven, the spiral pattern was sacred to the Children of the Forest, who created the Night King by sacrificing a captured man in a spiral “henge of stones”. The Night King then adopted the symbol as a sort of blasphemy, like Satan with the upside-down cross”

Get ready to be shocked – The last season of GOT will be surprising like the Red Wedding

David Nutter, the director of the epic Red Wedding scene, where Rob and Talisa Stark have been killed. David was asked if there will be more of these scenes, he replied: “The short answer is – yes!”

In an interview with Metro, David said he and the rest of his co-workers put lots of effort in the new season and even saying that some scenes were hard to film and ‘exhausting’.

Nutter said: “I can’t say that it’s more draining or less draining to be the director of the episode, but I will say that we’re all in the same boat, actors and director, when it comes to really bringing our ‘A game’ to the fore. Battle scenes are just incredibly exhausting for all concerned. Having said that, they are, at the same time, sometimes tedious – because there’s so much minute detail to deal with, from both an acting and directing standpoint. Horses, armaments, special effects are all vying for our attention and energy, in a lot of cases, and it’s true that it’s exhausting trying to lasso all of these elements into a coherent whole.”

Dan Weiss, Game of Thrones showrunner, said to Entertainment Weekly: “We want people to love it. It matters a lot to us. We’ve spent 11 years doing this. We also know no matter what we do, even if it’s the optimal version, that a certain number of people will hate the best of all possible versions. “There is no version where everybody says, ‘I have to admit, I agree with every other person on the planet that this is the perfect way to do this’ – that’s an impossible reality that doesn’t exist.”

Is Bruce Willis on his way to Brooklyn Nine-Nine?

Dan Goor, the co-creator of Brooklyn Nine-Nine wants Bruce Willis to be a guest star on his show.

In a QA session Dan was asked ‘who would you have liked to have been the guest star in this new season and why?’ and replied ‘Bruce Willis for obvious reasons.’

Some of you couldn’t spot the “obvious reasons” so let me assist you – the main character, Jake Peralta, is a super fan of the Die-Hard movie series and specially with John McClane, who is played by Bruce Willis’

The last trailer of the show pretty much shows Jake’s obsession with Die Hard:

So now its up to Willis’ to decide rather he go with it or not.

Andy Samberg, who plays Jake, said: “I know we’ve asked him like 10 times already, but I personally haven’t…. Hey Bruce – look, my character Jake Peralta on the show Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which is moderately successful, is obsessed with Die Hard and thinks that your character John McClane is the coolest character in the history of cinema. I, Andy Samberg, I’m a comedian, also feel that way. If you’d come be on the show, even if it’s for one sentence, like cool cameo, like we bump on each other on the street and you go, ‘Excuse me,’ and then walk away. If you had it in your schedule to breeze by just for one shot, I think it would mean a lot to the show, to the fan base.”

Bruce yet to appear on the show but you never know what will happen.

Even if it’s the worst day, I’m gonna try to appreciate it. I still feel that way. I never want to die. I honestly feel like if I get to do this and I have these beautiful kids and as long as I can [drum], I’m all good.”

Dave said after his friend died he couldn’t listen to Nirvana’s songs – “I went through a really dark period where I couldn’t really even listen to the radio because it broke my heart just to hear music” – Dave said in 2018.
