Random round-up of various things


flipping off

Here I am flipping off Acadia while we’re in the process of making our podcast for the general public this week.

Here’s something I’m mad about – I started watching Agent Carter last week, season 1, because I hadn’t watched it at all. Season 2 started this past week as well. Tonight I tried to continue watching season 1 and I couldn’t because it’s not available anymore, not on on demand, not on Hulu or Netflix. So, thanks, world, and thanks content providers. I see how it is.

So….. you don’t want me to watch your show? Because I’m not going to start with season 2, I want to start with season 1. But if you don’t let me, then I guess I can’t watch it at all.

I’m annoyed by stupid games that media companies play. If you want me to pay for a show, just make me buy it to begin with. If you broadcast it on a channel I’m paying for, and provide it via on demand/streaming services that I already pay for, how about you don’t just suddenly take it away? That would be great. Here’s what I don’t want to do – pay for a show on a network I already get, when I could have seen it for no additional cost last week. Why don’t you just stop being jerks?

I have similar stories about like 3 other shows. Right now what comes to mind is Broad City (but I watched it anyway, because, I effing love that show) and Black Sails. I’m sure there are more.

Do you have a similar story? Or, give me more reasons to hate cable and other media providers in the comments below.

I'm the President of Not Helping Acadia at this site, as well as Editor-in-Chief because none of these monkeys whacking on keyboards can spell. My username has now been explained, you're welcome. If you don't like me I don't care. Become a writer for the site and post your own garbage then, you plebe.

    Why did you wait a whole year?

      See, Acadia? I don’t even have time to watch the TV shows I want to, you ogre. Now our fans are calling me lazy.
