Matt, youíre exactly right.  I thought I would enjoy more of what Disney+ has on tap.  It turns out I donít.   That might change.  I might give Togo a look this weekend.

So for me it most definitely is a programming problem.  Clearly not for you.  I was looking for kindred spirits in this regard.

And Iím not alone in this....


My gripe is the space of time between the stuff that I think most people really got Disney+ for.

Netflix has taken years & years to get to where it is now. When it started it was a ĎSend me a DVD & Iíll send it you back laterí service.
Disney+ will catch up in due time, & fairly quickly I bet as well

óó-

But Disney had announced loose release dates for the Star Wars and
Marvel series well in advance of the release of Disney+. It was always
one Star Wars series in 2019, two Marvel in 2020, and a bunch of other
stuff 2021 and beyond. Itís not like this situation shouldíve been a
surprise to anyone.

@ Michael

That wasnít the surprise for me.

The surprise was finding out how little interest I had in the programming beyond The Mandalorian.  I initially felt having the backlog of past Disney, Pixar, Marvel, etc. would be enough to keep me engaged beyond The Mandalorian.  Turns out it isnít.   

The new original Disney shows (Jeff Goldblum, Encore and others) arenít all that interesting to me.  The few Pixar releases I havenít seen before were good, but not enough to keep me coming back to the channel regularly.  And my TV viewing is now powered only by streaming services since I have ďcut the cordĒ.  So I wonít keep paying for content I donít want.  Thats why I dumped Xfinity/Comcast in the first place. 

Thankfully Disney+ has recently announced the release date for Wanda/Vision has been moved up to fall of 2020.  This move is widely felt to be in response to some people openly complaining about the lack of content engaging enough to keep their subscription.

Iím just making my way thru THE SIMPSONS until new Marvel or Star Wars is released. 

One of the best things weíve watched on the service is IMAGINEERING. Great documentary series.

I'm a big fan of that documentary as well, Brian. My wife usually doesn't dig documentaries but she's enjoyed it.

Same here, Shawn. Of course, it helped that the doc was about her favorite topic in the world.

I'm probably the ideal customer for Disney +. I love Marvel, Star Wars, and the Simpsons but I've kind of forgotten how much Disney stuff I've loved over the years. Even though I own the blu-ray, I watched the Sword and the Stone after my daughter was finished watching a few episodes of Raven's House this evening. I dig into the old cartoons and movies and I still haven't hit old favorites like the Artistocats and the Rescuers. Hell, I watched a few episodes of The Gummi Bears the other day! I've ignored the other apps we stream to the point that I almost feel like I'm wasting money on them.

I am overseas and am unable to subscribe but does this channel show the old Wonderful Word of Disney shows I remember as a kid in the 70s? I still remember loving "The Mystery in Dracula's Castle" but I don't think it has ever been released. Is that available on Disney+?

They don't have the Wonderful World of Disney yet but I'm hoping they add it. A lot of Sunday nights were spent watching that!

The wife wanted to watch FLIGHT OF THE NAVIGATOR last night. She remembered watching it as a kid and loving it. We mightíve made it thru 30 minutes. Just awful.

@Brian - I had a similar result with the old X-Men cartoons.

I was so eager to take that trip back in time.  It was so awful I couldnít wait to find something else to watch.  That stuff did NOT age well.

Thankfully Gargoyles was a better experience.
