Nestflix: A Catalog of Shows Within Shows

If you're going to write a fictional story about contemporary people, you need to show them enjoying entertainment, as we all spend so much time doing. Therefore, the characters in a movie go to the movies, or watch TV, or even work on such a production. These are shows within shows, also called nested shows, and they can be as memorable as the movie or TV series itself. Famous examples are Angels with Filthy Souls, seen in the movie Home Alone, or The Krusty the Clown Show on The Simpsons. Nestflix is a compilation of such shows, curated by Lynn Fisher. There are a lot more of these than you may realize, but the archive is not yet complete. You're invited to submit your favorites if you don't see them. Browse through Nestflix here. -via Metafilter
