Ok, I've About Had it With Netflix. It's starting to Suck.

Is it just me, or is Netflix starting to suck more and more balls with every passing day?! They keep taking these shows that my wife and I like off and it seems as if their mission is to get to the point where every movie, documentary and TV series is a Netflix original. And maybe it's just me, but I haven't watched any Netflix original series shows that I've been very thrilled about. First one I watched was Orange is the New Black. That show is alright, but if you were an "Oz" fanatic in the prior to watching it, it is difficult to be that thrilled about OITNB...and Prison Break. I can't even get through this latest season. The entire thing seems to be based on a riot that I lost interest in after an episode or two. And the couple-few Netflix series I've tried since, just hasn't kept my attention. This may because I have a bad attitude coming in about Netflix and haven't been able to shake it. To be fair, I probably haven't been giving the shows much of a chance because I am pissed at Netflix. My wife is really in to Stranger Things right now...she told me I would like it...I am having a difficult time forcing myself to watch it...and she is pretty good about knowing which shows I would like...so I really think it is an anti-Netflix bias.

So Netflix initially ruffled my feathers in a major way when they didn't renew the 30 for30's. I love 30 for 30's...I can watch them over and over. That started it all for me. Now I don't know where to watch them...and I refuse to buy cable/satellite in my town.

Then suddenly, a couple of my favorites; Malcolm In the Middle and The Wonder Years were taken off. That really, really pissed me off. 3 out of the 5 shows I watch more than anything on Netflix (The Office and Always Sunny being the other 2), all taken off...just like nothing. Those were all go-to shows to watch when I wanted to relax on a stressful day...always put me at ease. And my wife is upset about 30 Rock being taken down.

Thank goodness Hulu is stepping up and claiming some of these. Huge fan of Hulu right now.

Eventually, so may only be a subscribe to Hulu and HBO Now. I've about had it with Netflix.

Is that what Netflix is doing? Gravitating towards being exclusively Netflix originals? Because it sure seems like it. I knew it was too good to be true to have access to those great shows for well, more years.

The straw that will break the camel's back for me will be when they take The Office down. I have every season's DVD and everything, but I don't feel like whipping out one of my DVD players just because Netflix sucks. My wife and I watch The Office every day/night when we go to sleep. We have for the past 6-7 years... it's like our bedtime lullaby. At least with Always Sunny, I think Hulu will still have it.

I don't know where to watch The Wonder Years now. What, is it finally on DVD or something?!!

Ugh. Anyone else frustrated with this?

I think South Park was on to something a couple weeks ago when they jabbed at Netflix, teasing them for seemingly accepting any Netflix Orignal Series that is pitched to them.

Netflix has licensing agreements with content that they don’t own.

Those agreements are generally for very short periods of time and not in perpetuity.

Their agreement with Disney ends in 2019 so be sure to watch all of their content (Disney, Pixar, Lucasfilm, Marvel) while it’s available.

Thank you for the heads up on that.

I had no idea what was going on with it, but I figured it was something like that.

Do you expect the Netflix original stuff to continue to accelerate?

Sure their original content will continue to grow. Most of it is very well received and there are no expensive contracts after it's produced. It's theirs. Other shows get rotated in and out as they have a limited budget and like to change up the catalog every once in a while to keep it fresh. I've seen shows leave and come back three times... If they weren't watched, some never come back. You also have things like Disney, who is releasing their own streaming service and pull all their stuff from Netflix.

I wonder if the Netflix original stuff is very well received because it is good and I have some sort of mental block on it or if the bar has been lowered.

I mean, I guess it shouldn't have been too difficult to figure out...a simple google search would have accomplished things. I was pretty pouty for a while when I found out about Wonder Years and Malcolm which prompted me to create this thread.

I recommend giving the netflix originals more of a chance, I haven't watched one series that I haven't liked. Also, if you only watch the same shows over and over again than netflix is the wrong service for you. You should branch out and try different things.

I was just commenting on this to my wife last night. we sat down and tried to find something to watch yesterday evening. my god...it's really 95% old movies and a ton of shit you've never heard of. Just, obscure and random movies I would categorize as B movies.

I still dig the documentary side, and the stand up comedy side of things on Netflix, but in terms of finding a 'newer' movie that might have been in an actual movie theater in the last two years.....forget it.

and we've had Netflix since around 2003-2004. back in the day, you could log in and click a TON of recent movies in your queue that had recently just been in theaters. Now, it's largely just random garbage.

Thinking about dumping them and maybe getting Hulu instead, or just get redbox movies here and there.

It's not that. I can see how it comes off that way though.

I try to mix it up. There are just "go-to" shows I like to watch when I go to bed or just want something familiar on because I am preoccupied with something else.

I've watched a ton of TV series in their entirety. My favorites tend to be HBO shows.

I will say this, though... the past few years I've had a difficult time getting into new shows or movies. This seemed to start happening when I began working 3rd shift 3 years ago. I hate it. I hate 3rd shift. Always tired.

I love Hulu. And they are starting to add a bunch of good movies. They used to have just a few.

I do love the comedy specials on Netflix. Norm, Chapelle, Hart, Gaffigan, Bo Burnham... I'll probably be pretty pissy when they take those down.

Yeah, I wasn't trying to come off as an ass or anything. I personally love Netflix, I currently have a job where I am working on a computer all day and they don't mind if I have netflix running on my headphones and phone. So, I have watched a lot of their TV shows recently and love them.

I agree on the movie part of it, there really isn't that many good ones on here to watch. I also do the same thing with familiar shows, mine are Family Guy and Futurama

I need to watch Futurama. I've put that off long enough. I've liked the few episodes I've seen.

It kills me when they take shit off. More for my kids than for me.

And I'd say that 75% of Netflix is filled with shit. Dumb ****ing 1 star movies.
