I will not shut up about the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. I talk about them all the time and work them into every conversation I have. I built a shrine in my room for the yellow one who died because sadly no one noticed because she died around 9/11. Wanna see it?

Dunno if it helps but I barely made it through season 2 and noped out in 3 for the same reasons. I even got annoyed at the guy playing Lucifer as it just felt so hollywood. Then I started the Netflix seasons and there is something just ... better about it. Maybe it was just the time off but I've been enjoying the Netflix seasons. I would say give them a try and I never went back to season 3 as the latest seasons sum it up well enough.

Lucifer was treading water for seasons 2 and 3 and not really advancing the overarching plot much at all; kind of like a serial anime.

I'm also angry that Netflix chose to save Lucifer instead of continuing Santa Clarita Diet. They may not be related in any way but that's just how I feel.

Yeah I was really surprised that they went all the way with that on a network like CBS.

Whatever, show's alright. A couple plot points like that and the haunted VR headset feel a little too ripped-from-the-headlines for me but there's enough interesting stuff in there to keep me watching over my wife's shoulder while I do other stuff. And yeah Michael Emerson is great.

I read that is was Drew who decided to end it to focus on her talk show. But no way to know for certain.

Santa Clarita Diet finished and was cancelled a year and a half before her talk show started. Theyíre not related at all. It was cancelled by Netflix. Where do you get your news from?

That show was so good. That and The Tick were god tier and both of those getting cancelled back to back was such a giant bummer.

Turns out the streaming services are as good at murdering quality programming as the cable channels who could have predicted this

Netflix is way more inclined to do it because their revenue is 100% non-discriminated. A $400k income household pays the same per screen for Netflix as a $35k one. Whereas on network or cable, a show may survive several seasons on 100k viewers if enough of them drive Audis.

Netflix also knows exactly how many eyes are on any given show, so they know for sure if itís worth the investment.

Sadly the increased costs after 3 seasons means thatís when a lot of shows bite it. Unless youíre an Altered Carbon season 2 level fuckup, usually if you get renewed for S2 youíll make it to S3.

I'm assuming the streaming apps also basically do away with the old syndication benchmark where a show might buy some time just to make itself profitable in the secondary market. But Netflix doesn't really have to worry about that with its stuff.

Well with networks running low on shows currently they are showing some previously streaming-only shows, like MANHUNT, LA's Finest, and Star Trek: Discovery. I don't know how comparable that is to syndication, however.

I don't think it is. My understand is that the idea with syndication was always that you needed around 88-100 episodes of it to make it worth channels paying to air it on a nightly basis and not burn through the whole thing too quickly. So that could buy a struggling show a 3rd or 4th season if they were on the edge but they saw value in giving it a chance in that secondary market. But like Netflix isn't selling its shows off to syndication and their "secondary market" is just their first one with people binging on the app. And short run shows are probably even more valuable in that way because they're more attractive to binge than an 8 season show or something.

The network airings of the streamings hows doesn't feel similar since they're still doing them week-to-week so even a short run series has value and this is a short term thing anyway.

I'm still proud of myself for making this gif. I will never stop laughing at it.

Also the guy who ran seasons 1-4 is coming back to run the new show so as long as it's a continuation with absolutely nobody from the original series except Dexter and maybe Masuka, I'm game.

Criminally mishandled show. Is that streaming anywhere?

Should I also finally watch Dexter?

Almost Human is streaming on IMDB tv, which is part of Amazon's tv service network (which you can access through Amazon Prime's app, generally). If you have an amazon device like a fire stick it might be a separate client.

Similarly, Fringe is on it.

Started a rewatch of Newsradio on Crackle because the Mary Tyler Moore reminded me of it and it's been a decade since I saw it. It's still really good. Like I wish it was on Netflix or Hulu so it could become one of those 90s shows that has a resurgence.

Has anyone rewatched Working lately? I remember absolutely loving it while it was coming out and recently watched the pilot. I think it may have aged quite well, if not for the version I watched being like 240 resolution.

I've found it harder, but that's mostly because it's a bit shapeless, and the first season barely resolved anything.
