But Michele Clapton is one of them. ‘She has a tiny 23 in waist,’ says Michele. ‘Little by little, I’d tighten it to give her that neat shape — though I did let her take it off to eat.’ She’s not talking about the Queen, of course. She means actress Claire Foy, who plays the Princess in TV drama The Crown. The Crown has been dubbed ‘the most expensive series ever made’, with the first ten episodes costing £100 million.

Marvel gets gritty in Netflix's 'Daredevil,' and it's glorious

Matt Murdock is a man you want around in a sticky situation. In the first two episodes of Marvel's Daredevil alone, he rescues some woman from human trafficking, saves another (Deborah Ann Woll) from a masked intruder before clearing her murder charges, and rescues a kidnapped boy. But perhaps Murdock's biggest save on the new Netflix series is the name Daredevil itself. Prior to the TV series, which premiered Friday in a big Netflix-style episode dump, the name Daredevil had been pretty sullied. Sorry, Ben Affleck, but it's true. The 2003 film left a cheesy aftertaste that, even after more than a decade, seemed to followed the name. Excellent news: 'Marvel's Daredevil' renewed at Netflix.

The new comedy produced by Universal Television stars The Office and Bridesmaids alum Ellie Kemper as Kimmy, who is trying to start over in New York City after living in a doomsday cult for 15 years. The 13-episode first season, set to air in March, follows the wide-eyed, but resilient Kimmy as she finds a job, gets a roommate and navigates New York City in her light-up sneakers. Kemper's all-American face inspired the series, Fey and Carlock said in a statement provided to Mashable by Netflix. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to debut Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt exclusively on Netflix, which has proven to be such an outstanding place for distinctive, original programming," Fey and Carlock said.

Read with caution. Emmys: How will Netflix perform? Forgive us for getting the sense that Netflix, with its spiraling momentum and zero creative restraints, wasn't just crashing the Emmys party — it was strutting in, ordering a round for everyone, taking over the DJ booth and lighting up the dance floor. Well, if last year's Emmys ceremony was the moment it got past the bouncer, this year it got too drunk and fell on its face.

Netflix Launches Site Dedicated to Spoilers. Everyone hates spoilers, right? Nothing worse than someone blabbing out the murders in yesterday's episode of Game of Thrones, which you haven't had time to see yet.

Netflix, however, seems to think that spoilers can be fun, so it launched a special section of its site dedicated to showing you the pivotal moments in many popular films and TV shows. Besides spoiling yourself in a Russian roulette-styled app, which randomly chooses from a database of spoilers, you can also take a quiz to see what type of spoiler you are, or vote on which spoilers should be in the public domain — that is, which are so common that they can be considered harmless.

10 Countries With the Fastest Netflix Speeds [CHART] What's coming to Netflix in February and what's disappearing.

But at least they've wised up to the emotional turmoil they put eager customers through.

The company now releases lists of the changes you can expect in the upcoming month so you can prepare accordingly.

The third season of House of Cards, as promised, will arrive February 27.

Netflix's Data Points Are Not the Usual Suspects. Some businesses would love to get basic information like your name, age and gender to better understand how to market to you in the future. Netflix could care less. Netflix used to place an emphasis on collecting these types of biographical details about its users, but it eventually decided the data wasn't particularly useful.

"It really doesn't matter if you are a 60-year-old woman or a 20-year-old man because a 20-year-old man can watch Say Yes To The Dress and a 60-year-old woman could watch Hellboy," Todd Yellin, VP of product innovation at Netflix, told Mashable in an interview this week. In recent years, the video streaming and delivery service has instead focused on tracking the kind of data that users wouldn't even think to provide themselves.
