This week, we got to check out The Defenders, the latest Netflix/Marvel series. Also, Apple's going to spend $1 billion on original content next year – what's up with that? Plus, Netflix signs hitmaker Shonda Rhimes away from Disney's ABC. Scandalous! Also, Netflix is getting a romcom starring Ali Wong and Randall Park.

We also talk about how Apple's budget compares to those of existing original content giants like Amazon Prime Video, HBO and Netflix. And why Ava DuVernay says that Netflix is a great place for diverse creators. Also, Darrell accidentally calls legendary actress Sigourney Weaver by another, less flattering name.
