I'm pretty impressed with Jordan Peele's work in general, and the caliber of actors they've gotten for this new revival.  Even though pretty much all of the previous revivals have fallen completely flat for me, I'm interested in checking this one out.

ANOTHER CBS All-Access show???

Ugh.


EDIT:  Why do I keep getting that odd line in my posts?

"All Access" here defined as "Limited Access".

Oh, don’t worry. There have been rumors that the first seasons of STD and THE GOOD FIGHT will air on broadcast TV during the summer in order to attract viewers to sign up. And the first episode of STD’s second season was available for free on YouTube, recently. I couldn’t even be bothered to watch.

I’m sure these aren’t desperation moves. Oh, no. Not at all. 


Anyway, I don’t know if GET OUT automatically makes Peele the Rod Serling of present day. We’ll see. But not if the show is only on All Access...

Unfortunately, the streaming services are going to multiply before they contract.  In addition to Disney+ coming soon, after the Fox merger, Disney will have a 2/3 share in Hulu, so they plan to continue original programming for Hulu also.  WB has a streaming service coming (in addition to DC Universe).  CBS All Access is adding more and more programming.  Netflix continues to add new programming and films to replace the stuff that's getting pulled for all of these other services.  Same goes for Amazon.

Eventually, these will all collapse into just a couple of services, I imagine, ala Coke and Pepsi, but that's probably a few years down the pike.

Before Disney ends up owning everything, I think we’ll see more services like VRV, which bundles a bunch of anime and gaming streaming networks under one service.

The first two episodes were released on All Access last night.  I'll eschew spoilers for now, but I enjoyed it.  I don't know if we're on par with the original (or if anything ever will be), but I enjoyed it far more than any of the previous revivals.  The first episode has been released for free several places.  Here's a link to one of them.

I've never seen the hour-long episodes. I think that's
the only season (5th?) not available on Netflix.

Just finished watching the first episode, and it should have been 20 minutes shorter. Nice to see Tracy Morgan playing something different from his Tracy Morgan persona though.

Hour-long episodes were the weakest of the original series, and one of the issues with the 80s revival. I'm hoping they don't stick strictly to that format.

IIRC, the second episode was more like 45 minutes.
