You think that was their game with the ST Volumes 1 and 2 breaks? To see what happens with that approach? HBO still does it and I was fine watching *turns my head to the side to hide my forming tear* ...Raised by Wolves, one weird episode per week. GoT obviously held everyone's attention, especially for how long and deliberate that approaching two-season train came to that stack of pennies on the rail.

Yeah, i'd probably be upset at first to no longer be able to binge something but holy cow at the productivity I'd gain back!
They did that for two reasons, the Emmy deadline is May 31st so they can submit Stranger Things for 2022 and 2023 (which should tell you that Season 5 isn't coming until after May 31st 2023).

The second reason is they want something to sell and promote every month

January - Ozark
February - Vikings
March - Bridgerton
April - Ozark
May - Stranger Things
June - Umbrella Academy
July - Stranger Things
August - Sandman
September - Cobra Kai
October - Wednesday/Midnight Club
November - The Crown
December - Oscar Movies



I dunno, that's become pretty standard for hit series' that are winding down: a super-sized season if taken as one, but broken into two. Breaking Bad did it, Better Call Saul did it, Ozark did it. There are some advantages.
Turns out that Yellowstone is gonna do this for season 5. Split into two 7 episode parts, which means the season will have 4 more episodes than other seasons. Theyíre cagey about whether this is the final season or not though one might expect it to be if only due to the split season.

Unless you are Game Of Thrones and just want to end it quickly because you have nothing left to adapt lol

Can't remember the last time I actually watched a great movie on Netflix



Ads are officially coming to Netflix
Really? Ugh! That's going to further erode their subscriber base...Unless they go to a basic service that's free and make their money off ads. Now that could work.

Yeah, not sure if the details but Iím sure plenty will not be happy over it.



Feel like this belongs in The Sandman thread, but not really related to it....


People have lamented that a show they like will be cancelled by Netflix. Was anyone upset about Resident Evil or Altered Carbon. Well, one person was. What gets renewed and what doesn't is a big mystery. Obviously hours watched are part of the metric, but what else.


How is Umbrella Academy getting a 4th season? I liked the first season. Loved it actually. Just never got around to watching more. There aren't a lot of discussions about it or articles on entertainment sites. By the looks of it, it can't be cheap. Yet here we are, heading into season 4.



well there are many other options except Netflix to watch movies. lol



I don't know but I recently got netflix and half the time it don't even wanna work. I watch one film and the next one will be "loading" forever but not play and it doesn't make a difference if I turn my device of for 3 minutes. It will just work again when it wants to. I DONT think I'll be renewing for another month, sick of the shit.


Also absolutely detest how their default for foreign language films is English dubs and not subtitles, pathetic.

Iíve been with Netflix for many years & have never watched a foreign movie thatís dubbed only.
