    This. DC done Wally wrong when they brought Barry back. Wally West was the best.

    They should create a Wally West song to the tune of Go West.

    And in obvious news that there's not an endless amount of money to be made in streaming services, YouTube cancels a bunch of shows I know nothing about, most recently Step Up: High Water and Wayne. They also rejected two pilots. Only three scripted series remain.

    Sounds like they're moving out of subscription on demand and moving to ad-supported streaming.

    Dear YouTube,
    I go to you for free videos, I'm not for your paid "content" that is ... there.
    Just give me my music videos and some commentary shit and the occasional dumb thing a dumb person is doing. In the meantime, I will put my money for actual shows.

    Sincerely,
    Me

    Yeah YouTube is free, just add some ads and steal my info to sell it. I don't want TV shows. Just like Charter, or whatever they renamed themselves, make TV shows. Just a mess. Netflix is going through growing pains at some point the things will settle.

    Yeah, I think Netflix will be going through a major realignment as they lose their licensed content. I do wonder how that will affect the tremendous debt the company has, will the lenders start calling for repayment?

    I think Apple will flop out of the gate, but they have magazines and other stuff to make them different enough. HBO MAX is DOA as the rumour pricing is ridiculous. Disney will kill. They will keep their prices low, have you sign up and then as the other companies fall will raise their prices. Amazon has the website to promote their shows (And have The Expanse). Netflix is just trying to make so much content before they lose everything else but then no one knows about it and it gets canceled. Netflix really needs to get their head out of their ass. I mean this is a company that has done INCREDIBLY stupid things and recovered. However how many screw ups can you do before you become Blockbuster?

    IMDB lists 10 unnamed episodes for 2019. Of course, that could always change. It’s likely one of their more expensive shows to produce and they’re having problems keeping up with other streaming competition these days.

    I noticed that when looking there and it didn't fill me with confidence. Such a shame.

    They could ditch Another Life and save money that show is kind of ordinary

    IMDB isn't always the most reliable place for news.

    True, but in the absence of all else, sometimes they're the only show in town. :shrug:

    Last I heard (via digitalspy) was that an expected air date was next year. Union Journalism seem to think next year too (though I haven't heard of them before)
    Screenrant seem to think November this year and that it was filming a few months back.

    Yeah, but, unreliable news is not really news.

    Yeah, same here. It really surprised me how much I ended up liking the show given how much of a track record they have with me. Personally think it's one of their best shows.

    Damn, I like that show. My son swears that if I like anything it's pretty much doomed. I'm surprised the Magicians has lasted this long, really.

    Lost in Space was renewed for two 10 episode seasons when it was picked up, the delay is because it's a sci-fi show. I expect it to be 20 and done because so is Netflix.
