Stranger Things Spend

In a week when Netflix reported their first drop in total subscribers in their ten years of operation, it's not surprising that eyes have turned to Netflix's spending.

Their achievements in the entertainment industry have been truly remarkable, but at what cost?

The Batman Opening Scene

The Batman has released on HBO Max in the US - not available here - and they've released the opening scene on YouTube.

Our debilitating reboot exhaustion is particularly sore in the region of Batman so we're passing on this one but approve of the practice of releasing opening scenes as a potentially more transparent representation of a film than trailers.

Love, Death + Robots S3

An amusing teaser including a release date of May 20 has been released for Netflix's Love, Death + Robots.

Netflix News

For the first time in their 10 years of streaming service, Netflix has recorded a loss of subscribers - 200, 000 in Q1 of this year.

Had they not cut services in Russia over their invasion of Ukraine, Netflix would have added 500, 000 subscribers. This still would have fallen far short of their forecast 2.5 million increase.
