Say Goodbye to Revenge and These Shows and Movies Netflix is Dropping [UPDATE]


You better schedule your guilty pleasure viewing party of Batman and Robin over fast because you’ll only be able to giggle at George Clooney’s nipples on Netflix much longer.

That film and a bunch of other television shows and movies are disappearing from the streaming service on Feb. 1 because Netflix hates you and likes to torment your soul. Just when the early stages of your freakout that Netflix might be dropping some BBC shows subsided, word comes that more of your beloved favorites are going bye-bye come Feb. 1.

GOD, NO, NOT MONKEY TROUBLE! This is devastating news to the die-hard monkey-related cinema fans out there. As for Revenge, I would get too worked up about it. You pretty much only need to watch the first season and maybe half of the second before it goes completely off the rails.

Emily Thorne is reportedly handling this news by moving into a beautiful cottage next to Netflix’s mansion, slowly charming her way into Netflix’s good graces and biding her time, waiting for the perfect moment when everything finally comes together. Just wait, Netflix. You’ll see.

Update: Thanks to a reader and a kindly Netflix employee, we now know for sure that it is NOT Revenge the series that is leaving Netflix, it’s Revenge the movie. Both feature Madeleine Stowe, FYI. (I wonder if that’s how she picks her scripts? Agent: We have a great new project for you, Madeleine! This is going to be a hit for sure. Stowe: Is it called “Revenge?” Agent: Um, no. Stowe: Hmm. Pass.)
