Plus: a New England folk tale assigned!
This will sound very naïve and at the risk of asking a very dumb question...can someone she some more light on the "critics-only streaming portals"? I have heard of talk shows and critics getting sent tape ahead of time but do these portals replace that? who is given access? Do all shows/movies participate? It seems like an obvious development but I had never heard of it before.
You should get JVL to subsidize your subscriptions. I mean, really.
I find Amazon Prime the best of the services since it makes it so seamless to add channels like Acorn or Starz, and easy to cancel those subscriptions when we've watched whatever we subscribed to in order to watch. Netflix just hasn't kept up. I usually rotate services--Hulu Live during sportsball season, Netflix when they drop a new season of "The Crown" or "Ozark," and Apple TV to watch Ted Lasso. Will have to add HBO Max to the rotation,
Surprisingly I have found Apple TV+ to have the best originals of any of the services so far. Severance, Foundation, and Ted Lasso have all proven to be far better than any live action show produced by Netflix. The only place Netflix shines is in some of its' original animated series.
Thanks so much for your review. My husband and I are canceling Direct TV (way too expensive for what you get) and going the way of Netflix, Hulu, etc. We're just getting started, so your ratings really give us an idea of what's out there.
We have Netflix and Amazon Prime. I also have access to Hulu but I’ve never watched Disney+. I mainly watch Netflix and Amazon Prime. I don’t have to watch the latest stuff and I honestly don’t watch a lot of movies (except in the theater). Basically, I’m the perfect Netflix subscriber. 😂
We are HBOMax subscribers but find Prime Video to be our fave. Agreed Netflix is on the skids. We are long time old DVD subscribers but we could let it go.
I have always liked Ezra Miller and am extremely worried about them. I agree with you. They need some help. I like to binge an entire season at once but, you are right, it doesn’t make much economic sense. I watched The Underground Railroad on Amazon Prime in a couple of days. I agree with what I have read that releasing the entire series of a demanding watch at once might have hurt ratings. I think maybe releasing two or three episodes a week is a good idea. One is just not enough imo.
Maybe because I am old now...lol...but I like Netflix...mostly to watch reruns of entire series I love that I never go around to buying...it took me a long time to acquiesce to streaming, I fought it and Netflix when it converted was where I caved...lol..
I am not really into finding and/or watching new TV, I rarely just watch TV anymore, I am always doing something else ( Mostly on my computer)and have it on for background noise...so, it works for me
I also have Disney + which takes care of most of my favorites these days... I can neither afford nor am into subscribing to new streaming.
Well now hold on, things are looking bad now but they are holding a couple golden tickets..Knives Out 2 and 3. Not only that but someone at Netflix must have been sitting on a big favor they were owed by Rian Johnson, how else can you explain that he agreed to make the movies for only 10 times the budget of the first one?
Three cheers for the "olds." As one of three people who saw West Side Story in the theater and doesn't know the Marvel from the DC universe, more movies like Pig, please. We go to the movies. We have more time on our hands and don't need a babysitter. Also, except for its monopoly on the Great British Baking Show, nothing lately has been very interesting on Netflix since "Call My Agent."
