The New Year Brings Gains And Losses To Your Netflix Watch Instantly Queue


The New Year Brings Gains And Losses To Your Netflix Watch Instantly Queue

Netflix has just released their lists of what films and TV shows we will see added in February…and what films and TV shows will vanish.

First, the good news: quite a few classic and popular TV shows are making the grade on the streaming service, including the first five seasons of MASH,  Hawaii 5-0, and the new season of House of Cards. New additions to the film list include RoboCop, The Brothers Bloom, and Gimme Shelter. While there’s not a lot of quality stuff on offer, there are at least a few new films and TV shows that we can enjoy on the Netflix streaming service.

Now for the bad news: quite a number of favorites are going to vanish from Netflix come February 1. Among these are several James Bond films, Zodiac, Jane Eyre, and Dredd. The TV shows fare even worse, with tons of BBC shows expiring, including Fawlty Towers and Blackadder. The Bronies among us will also have to go elsewhere for their fix, with Seasons 1-4 of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic dropping out.

Looking over the list of those films and TV shows coming and going on Netflix, it seems that we’re losing a lot more than we’re gaining. Many of the arriving films are not quite classic or even particularly good, while the loss of those BBC shows and quite a few quality films means that we’ll have to find other sources for streaming fun. Netflix might have some strong original shows at their back, but they’re beginning to fail us when it comes to other shows and films.

If you look below, you can check out the full list of the films and TV shows that will arrive and depart from Netflix come February.
