The Joy of Geek Podcast, Episode 45:

The State of Streaming & Our Top Five from Netflix, Amazon and Hulu

On this episode of The Joy of Geek Podcast, we take a look at the current state of streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu, and explore the incredible rise and recent explosion of this increasingly dominant way to enjoy television. This is a medium that is growing and evolving so quickly that we actually had to break out an iPhone to record an additional news segment (which you'll find at the end of the podcast) to discuss a few big news stories that broke since we recorded.

Therefore, we start and end the podcast by talking about some of the latest streaming-related news stories - including the new trailer for David Fincher's Mindhunter, the debate over the size of Netflix's current debt, and the latest Stranger Things news, as well as some late-breaking stories about Disney's streaming plans, Netflix's acquisition of Millarworld, and Robert Kirkman's decision to take his future TV projects to Amazon

And for the main topic this week, we count down our current favorite original shows from the big three streaming sources (although the majority of our choices come from Netflix, as it happens). We each offer up our top-five favorites, along with some honorable mentions (and one or two shows to be avoided at all costs). Oh, and shows that joined Netflix later in their runs like Black Mirror and The Killing are also fair game, in case you were wondering. 

So join us, as we celebrate the best that TV has to offer, even when it's not technically "TV". This...is the Joy of Geek!

EDITOR'S NOTE: As you may have noticed, the numbering scheme of the episodes has recently changed - we will explain why on a future episode. Also, stay tuned after the end of the episode for some late-breaking news stories.
