OKAY, enough. Netflix has gotta stop caring more about having exclusive rights to shows than about having shows people wanna watch. Taking away 3 of my top 5 favorite shows in the matter of a few months is too much. Emergency blog topic change, let’s do dis.
It started when I went to search for The League one day cuz I didn’t see it in my ‘continue watching’ queue. It didn’t show up in the search results & as someone who’s seen every episode like 10 times each, I wasn’t thrilled. As of today, How I Met Your Mother is off Netflix. I’m not happy about that either. I do have the whole series on DVD, so I’ll survive, but still. AND NOW. Last night I found out that they’re taking It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia off next month. HOW could you do that? Sunny is my go-to show to throw on, my happy-mood show, that one show that can always make me laugh no matter what.
Am I gonna have to get Hulu so I can watch my favorite shows? I don’t have enough storage space to have them all on DVD & Netflix won’t keep the shows unless they have exclusive rights. People are in an uproar on Twitter (lol, an exaggeration) threatening to cancel their subscriptions (actually happening). I don’t wanna cancel Netflix though, what about all the Netflix Originals, like Stranger Things (review coming soon) & Bloodline? If you’ve been here awhile, you’ll know that I have a series reviewing Netflix Originals, so you could say I like Netflix a bit. But fuck them for taking away How I Met Your Mother, The League AND It’s Always Sunny. What am I supposed to watch now?
Any & all suggestions for funny, half-hour sitcoms on Netflix are welcome in the comments. Don’t leave me Hulu suggestions, I’m not ready yet.
