Netflix Comings And Goings Of The Geek Variety

The streaming service giveth and the streaming service taketh away.

Netflix has stuff coming and going all the time.  That’s hardly new.

So, let’s take a moment to make a note of a show leaving and another one starting that may be of interest to geeks everywhere.

First up, well, the animated Clone Wars series is apparently leaving as of March 7th.

Well, I needed an impulse to finish the series, and that’s a good one.  I’ll be sorry this one has to leave.  It actually made Anakin and Padme’s relationship believable and additionally wasn’t afraid to kill characters off.  Seriously on the relationship thing.  Those two voice actors had better chemistry than their live action counterparts.

But maybe there’s some comfort knowing the successful Kickstarter of the Mystery Science Theater 3000 revival has a start date of April 14th.

For those not in the know, MST3K as it is often known is about a man and two robots forced to watch bad movies on a satellite as part of a weird experiment being performed by a pair of mad scientists.  That’s actually the least important part of the show as the real entertainment comes from the guy and his puppet pals cracking wise through the whole movie.  A popular cult show, I think I know what I’ll be doing starting the 14th of April.  That almost makes up for the lose of Clone Wars.  Almost.
