The waiting is the hardest part

The Netflix factory is in full swing — but the latest offering will demand some patience. "Between," which tells the story of a town under siege from a mysterious disease, will not be available all at once, like most other Netflix series. Instead, you'll have to wait until Thursday nights for new episodes. Streaming begins at 7:30 p.m. Netflix
