Just trying some "stream of consciousness" writing, as I have nothing else to write about at press time. Doesn't the above image give you a sweet surge of nostalgia? Well, I guess you would have to be my age (32) or near it. I watched a lot of TV in the 90's. I fucking remember what it was like to see new episodes of The X-Files and Are You Afraid of the Dark? Okay, there were new episodes of The X-Files last season, but you know what I mean. Asshole.
I've been drinking down beakers of X-Files nourishment via Netflix. There has been an added layer of pressure to my recreation. Apparently, all seasons of the show are leaving Netflix as of April 1st. My question is, why? Not enough bandwidth? Look, I'm not going to start a petition, but seriously, what is the reasoning here? Are they trying to drum up subscribers for their "disc-only" plans? That's a laugh. I treasure physical media, but everyone and their indentured servant knows that Netflix is in the process of forsaking actual DVD's.
Y'know, the best way to augment Instant Streaming would be to leave titles on Instant Streaming. And maybe beef up the selection. Am I done gabbling yet?
