The Verge reports that in an effort to push towards more children's programming, Netflix is resurrecting the popular educational cartoon from the 1990s.

The streaming service will release 26 episodes of the reimagined show, now called The Magic School Bus 360, beginning in 2016. Ted Sarandos, Netflix's chief content officer, told The New York Times that the original series ranks as one of the most popular educational programs in his company's catalog — despite the fact that new episodes were last produced in 1997.

Thanks to the lessons learned in Marvel Studios' foray into movies, they're really getting good at tying down actors for the rest of their lives. Toward that end, we learned today that Rosario Dawson (Claire Temple) will be coming back to Daredevil Season 2, and more importantly, any Netflix series they want her to be in.

It's a great move, because Jessica Jones and Luke Cage will probably need a superhero nurse, too.

Yup. As fate would see fit, it just so happens you've only scratched the surface of highly refined, impressively customizable, Netflix-binge-a-thon experience.

Netflix usually operates with a user-navigation system configured such that you can search for shows and/or movies by titles or common genres--Romance, Action & Adventure. Thing is, there's a hidden way to work around this.

The URL for something simple as 'Documentaries" is http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/6839; but by changing the numerical segment at the end the URL you can discover 'Controversial Foreign Movies' (2273) and a whole mess of other uber specialized genres.

This little Netflix hack opens up a world of possibilities, and all cheesy slogans aside, there's about to be something for everyone looking to kick back and check out with this clutch streaming service.
