Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin had some fun at the Today show Friday when they began candidly discussing sex toys, and hosts Savannah Guthrie and Carson Daly were a little shook! LOLz!

Although Savannah had some trouble actually articulating what season three of Netflix's Grace & Frankie was about, Jane had no such qualms. She jumped right in, saying:
"At the end of season 2, someone gives us presents and my present is a vibrator. Grace has never used a vibrator before — she ends up with carpal tunnel syndrome. And our families make fun of us, so we say we're going to go into business … making vibrators for older women."
Sounds like a flawless business plan!
The 79-year-old went on to describe how her and costar Lily's characters approach the whole thing, saying:
"The problem is, Grace is a real business woman. [Frankie] can't add up her checkbook. And she's into vaginal lubrication, which she makes out of yams which I had thought was jam and put on my toast! She keeps raising the wrong subject because I want to push with the vibrators."
Ultimately, however, they do settle on the perfect product. Jane described it thusly:
There are a lot of April showers in the forecast, but it isn't rain. No, those droplets are actually the tears of millions of Joss Whedon fans.
Why? They just found out they have to dust off their old foldout DVD sets whenever they want to watch their favorite episodes of Buffy The Vampire Slayer — the entire series is leaving Netflix on April 1!
QUIZ: So You Think You Know Buffy???
Oh, did we say Buffy? We also meant Angel, Firefly, and Dollhouse! Oh, and fans of '90s sci-fi can't even cry on the shoulder of Fox Mulder because X-Files is leaving too!
Sadly no, this is not an April Fools joke. Anyone want to grab some Surge cola and 3D Doritos for a '90s marathon??
Here's everything that's leaving in April:
With her upcoming Netflix series Thirteen Reasons Why, Selena Gomez is reflecting on why the story resonates so much with her.
And by doing so, the 24-year-old got candid about her relationship with social media and even being bullied as a kid!
In case you didn't know, the show is based off Jay Asher's book about a teen who tries figure out why his classmate committed suicide.

In an interview with The New York Times also featuring her mom Mandy Teefey and playwright Brian Yorkey, Selena shared how "it felt like" the show "was mirroring what was going on in my life".
So when it came to speaking with Jay about optioning the rights to the book at the age of 15, she revealed:
Bye bye, stars! Hello, thumbs!
Netflix has just announced it's getting rid of its five-star rating system and replacing it with a simpler thumbs up or thumbs down version.

Isn't that fascinating??? We know you were dying for an overhaul.
No, but seriously this news was so important a press briefing was organized, with VP of Product Todd Yellin explaining that they had been testing the new system and it resulted in a 200% increase in user feedback. Basically, people are way more into the thumbs than the stars.
There's also a new "percent-match" feature that matches titles to users based on how well they like something. For example, if a show or movie fits very closely to your taste, it would get something like a 98% match. Anything that got less than 50% would not be given consideration.
All of the changes are made in the hopes of making the Netflix user experience easier and more accurate as well.
Still, may we suggest having a sideways thumb for things that are just meh?
