Netflix is emerging as the savior of shows that Fox dicked over. First, they garnered undying comedy nerd love by striking an agreement to stream new episodes of Arrested Development. It now looks like the subscription service is looking to capitalize on Fox’s high-profile cancellation of Terra Nova. The science fiction series did okay in the ratings and has a solid fan base but it wasn’t the ratings behemoth Fox wanted. But it’s perfect for Netflix!

As of right now the talks are only preliminary. The show is very expensive to produce on account of dinosaurs being extinct and all, and who knows what Netflix can afford. I get the feeling that people may freak out if there’s another price hike. (Deadline)

Netflix Instant Loses Over 1,000 Starz Titles This Week http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/netflix-instant-loses-over-1000-starz-titles-this-week/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/netflix-instant-loses-over-1000-starz-titles-this-week/#comments Tue, 28 Feb 2012 16:00:35 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=246366 There's precious time left to watch 'B.A.P.S.'!

As the prophecies foretold, the union of Netflix Instant and Starz Play will be broken when the Leap Day moon rises to its highest point. For that is the day that the elders decreed enough of this sh*t and the opportunity to stream over 1,000 titles will end. But it’s not the end of the world (as much as the Mayans would like you to believe).

Click here to see the full list of titles that will be pulled, and you’ll notice that there are about only thirty movies and television shows that are watchable if not great (arguably). This is Starz we’re talking about here. It’s the Boost Mobile of pay-cable channels. We’ll miss gems like Party Down, CB4, Billy Madison, and Toy Story 3, yes. But shouldn’t we own those already if we love them so much? What we’re really losing is an alarming number of Perry Mason titles.

Netflix‘s brighter days are on the horizon as their new deals with studios like Dreamworks Animation and The Weinstein Company come to pass. In the meantime, there are still over 19,000 non-Perry Mason titles to watch. So if you want to find out how the surly lawyer takes on the Case of the Grimacing Governor, you have to act fast.

Remember all the ill will Netflix created a few month back when they dramatically altered their pricing structure? Well, all is forgiven now that the service has landed exclusive rights to show new episodes of Arrested Development. At this point, they could come over to my house and sleep with my wife, and I’ll still kiss their ass and call it ice cream.

The episodes will begin airing on Netflix instant sometime in early 2013 as a warm up for the long rumored Arrested Development movie. If this works out, I think we’ll be seeing new episodes of Community sometime around 2016. (Vulture)
