They snapped their fingers and got rid of half the marvel shows

They have cancelled Iron Fist and Luke Cage

WTF!?

I liked both

Reasons for Iron Fist are unclear, some say season two didn't do as good as the first season. I still liked it, and it ended on a good cliffhanger.

Reasons for Luke Cage, "disagreement" between netflix and the writers. Huh? it gets cancelled for that?

Great. Get rid of the two Marvel shows with the most potential. At least there's still The Punisher.

Knowing that Disney is planning to launch their own streaming service, it seems like too much of a coincidence to be sure that Netflix deserves the blame here.

I did see a rumor that maybe Iron Fist could go to Disney.

I don't :shrug:
I think Netflix has more than 50 million subscribers in America alone. Maybe they should charge more.

yes they have a lot of streamers

but

growth domestically is slowing, and they've been spending like drunken sailors on new productions and acquisitions

i've even heard people dismiss the whole thing as a money laundering operation ... just as an example they've almost doubled their debt load in the past year, to over $8 billion

though in truth a ton of corporations have a buttload of debt ... for instance apple has the habit of issuing new debt after each product announcement, taking on $7 billion after the last iphone launch a few months ago

the worst offender is verizon, which has well over $100 billion in debt

some say there's a crisis of corporate debt in the us, but let's face it, we're much better off focusing on the president's tweets, amirite
