    Netflix pulled this with The Event and something else recently. I'll believe it when I see it.

    Pulled what? It's possibly been offered to them, and they are possibly considering it. No promises have been made

    Exactly. I doubt this deal will go through as I can't see Terra Nova bringing in many new people. It wasn't a show that came across as having a huge fanbase like Arrested Development which Netflix did pick up.

    Well, that's a shame. But at least it leaves them free to save FreakyLinks.

    ^Thanks for the info on that, I'll make sure to check some of that out.

    Is everyone sitting down? :D Netflix passed on Terra Nova. Quel suprise.

    After they started sniffing around The River too, I figured they were mainly interested in kissing up to Spielberg either in the hopes of making a powerful friend in Hollywood (Netflix's tribulations in streaming rights show that they need to do something in this area) or possibly even exploring co-producing an original series with him, maybe something that doesn't suck for a change.

    No doubt The River would be a lot cheaper to produce. I wouldn't want to see Netflix waste their money on that either, but it would be a somewhat less-stupid decision than picking up Terra Nova.

    I'd like to see more Netflix programming out there. After all streaming media looks like its replacing cable.
