Offline playback is now on Netflix. Finally! This is a feature we've wanted for so long and it's very exciting that it is finally available. But not everything in Netflix's catalogue is actually available to download.

If you watch a TV show long enough, the home becomes a character in itself. You start remembering the little details of each room, what scenes happened where, and start feeling like their home is just an extension of your house. Yeah, I remember the pool in Breaking Bad and definitely the dining table. Of course, I've been to Arrested Development's model home and done morphine at Mr Robot's apartment. Here's a collection of floor plans from popular TV shows like those. You'll feel right at... home.
If you include the main cast, it's fairly obvious who has the most lines: It's Homer, by hundreds of thousand of words, followed by Marge, Bart and Lisa all bunched up pretty close together. But what if you just count the words spoken by the supporting cast from season one to 26? Which supporting character do you think has spoken the most lines on the show then? Is it Flanders? Moe? Krusty?
Video: It's been three meth-less years since Breaking Bad ended. That's way too damn long without the good stuff of Heisenberg. So to celebrate the three-year anniversary of the show, Nerdwriter decided to take a closer look at its best episode: Ozymandias, the third to last episode in the series where everything Walter White worked for came to an end.
It's been a long time coming, but audiences are finally a few weeks out from seeing the pilot of HBO's Westworld. Now actor James Marsden said part of the reason we all had to wait so long for Westworld was because the writers wanted to make sure before they moved forward, they had the story completely figured out — even through seasons five or more.
Twenty two years ago, fans fell in love with a TV version of Ben Edlund's The Tick, charmed by the show's loopy self-aware superhero send-ups. Fifteen years ago, fans cheered for a live-action version of the Tick starring the too-perfect Patrick Warburton. This year, we get a new Tick for a new landscape, and I'm already hooked.
We've seen a glimpse of Peter Serafinowicz in the weirdly textured super-suit. We've heard from creator Ben Edlund about why he's coming back to his signature creation. Now, we're getting a look at Arthur, the main villain and some other heroes in Amazon's new Tick series. It all looks goofy as heck.
Video: The Joker is easily one of the best villains in film and TV (and obviously, comic book) history, but who is the best Joker? Jack Nicholson combined the mischievous campiness of the character with the deranged thirst for violence. Heath Ledger's The Dark Knight Joker is somehow just as iconic as Nicholson and fit Christopher Nolan's Gotham perfectly. And Mark Hamill has basically become the standard-bearer of the Joker through his work in the animated Batman series.
Futurama may not make me laugh as hard as other comedies, but its vision of the future and all the shenanigans that come with it have always been enjoyable to watch (throughout all its various cancellations and comebacks). Kaptain Kristian makes the case that Futurama is special because it was the "master of hiding brilliance in plain sight. Bridging the gap between comedy and arithmetic while bringing humanity to the science."
Video: Sure, Game of Thrones' Battle of the Bastards aired a couple of weeks ago and many things have happened in life and on the internet since then. But we can't stop thinking about it, because we have a very bad case of Game of Thrones withdrawals. Luckily, CineFix goes in deep on the epic sequence and examines why it was just so damn brilliant.
Video: Even though it took place three seasons ago, the Red Wedding in Game of Thrones is still probably one of the most shocking things to ever happen on the series. And though George R.R. Martin is wildly imaginative in creating the world of Westeros, the inspiration for the Red Wedding actually comes from history. We did this to ourselves before Game of Thrones did it.
Video: The world of Westeros in Game of Thrones is so impressively detailed, and the history of its characters is so well crafted, that it's amazing that George RR Martin could even come up with something so imaginative all on his own. Of course, as we know, that's not the case. Game of Thrones is heavily influenced by real life historical events, many of which come from the medieval history of Great Britain.
