Yeah, weird right?  Pleasant surprise to see some of the old folks again.  Whose next?  Junkyard?

The trailer for the Netflix original Marvel's Luke Cage looks good.  Season 1 drops on Netflix Friday (9/30).

Since I only recently got Netflix streaming, with new seasons of shows, are they available at 12:01am, or some time later in the day?

If 12am, then I can look forward to seeing at least four episodes tonight before bed. :)

I know it's in the morning of the day listed, but I've never seen them at 12 or 1 AM eastern time, so it must be sometime after 12 AM Pacific Time.

Thanks!  Well... maybe I can get one or two episodes in before bed, depending.  [I suppose I could call their Customer Service and ask... if I do, I'll post what they tell me here.]

Just finished talking to someone in Customer Service at Netflix.  The person looked for the info for a good five minutes.  There is apparently neither a set time for releases of new Netflix-original shows across-the-board, nor is there an 'in print' time he could find for the release of Luke Cage by itself.  :P  The best he could do was to say, "if you've marked it as interested, it will show up in your 'My List' when it becomes available."

Not ideal, by any means.  I guess just every hour on the hour I'll stop whatever I'm already watching and check in with 'My List' to see if it showed up yet. ::)  I suspect your "Midnight Western time zone" idea is most likely, MartyS.

When I buy season passes at Amazon the new episodes usually go live 4am eastern. 

When Chelsea first started, Netflix used to say new episodes would drop 12 or 1 AM Pacific time Wed,Thurs,Fri.  That show almost got annoying enough for me to stop watching it, but it has leveled off to slightly less annoying and just funny enough for me to continue to check out new episodes.

"4am eastern"  ...hmm... so Midnight Alaskan time zone.  Interesting choice. ;D  I have noticed that Amazon changes over their 'Orders' 'Open Orders' references (e.g. "arriving tomorrow", "arriving today") at 4am also.

I think I've only seen two episodes of Chelsea.  One was the round-table with the Civil War actors, the other with Mike Coulter.  If Chelsea doesn't get too cynical and negative and dominate discussions, I can tolerate and even enjoy her and her humor (i.e. in smaller doses than what was on her 'E!' show).  But I don't care for cynicism, nihilism, and seeing others as 'less human' as a way of perceiving the world, so at times she's a bit much for me.

what time zone is hawaii? that would ensure that the digital release happens that day for all of the u.s.

Apparently it is one time zone further West than Alaska (so four hours later than Eastern).  So they don't quite do 'all the U.S. at once', unless they allow Hawaii to have things at 11pm the 'night before'.

Has this been largely a season of failures?  Most of the new shows I've tried have, over time, become less and less interesting for a variety of reasons.  Some seem to have failed straight out of the gate.

Last week I tried Powerless (the DC sitcom about a Wayne R&D department), and found it far too much typical sitcom (i.e. not at all funny), and too little 'DC'.  I will likely give it a couple more weeks if I can stomach it, but the first episode is supposed to wow new audiences.  For me the only wow was, "wow, I am so bored: this is so clich├ęd and trite!"

I am looking forward to the albeit brief season of Legion starting tonight (only 8 episodes).  From what little promo stuff I've allowed myself to see of it [I hate spoilers, for those who don't know] it looks like it might kick some serious psychological butt, mixed in with the mutant antics.

Eh, I can't get interested in Legion. Sorry, but it's just not Legion without the silly hair:
