Thomas is just sad it’s not offering an original Herbie series.

Wallace, if you happen to be a Disney VISA care holder, they’re running another deal that is three years for $169. Not quite the savings of the earlier discount, but a pretty good savings.

Sorry, but I've gotta come back to this...

The great thing about Netflix is the wide variety of programming, whereas Disney, as a whole, seems to be focusing on a narrow and somewhat incestuous sliver of main brands.

If by "narrow and somewhat incestuous sliver of main brands" you mean the billion dollar Star Wars franchise or the billion dollar MCU franchise or the billion dollar Pixar franchise, I guess I really have to ask what your definition is of "narrow and somewhat incestuous" as well as your definition of "sliver".  "Narrow" would suggest a specific audience that would never in a million years elevate a franchise to a billion dollars and sliver, by definition, is narrow. "Narrow" is the exact opposite of Disney and its properties.  

Let's be real here for a second....you're comparing a streaming service that is over a decade old, one that had its own growing pains to deal with for several years, with one that hasn't yet debuted and holding against said new service the fact that they're capitalizing on their known IPs to get an audience.  SHOCKER!!!  How dare they?!?  How about, oh I dunno, giving them a minute to actually show what they offer instead of automatically deflecting to the negative.  Unique concept, I know, but give it a try.

Bump for Paul Kimball so we can discuss the Mandalorian.

Well, you guys can, I've got to wait until Disney ceases its deal with Sky - hopefully around April 2020. How I avoid spoilers until then I have no idea.

Just downloaded it.  Only looked through the Marvel stuff real quick because of work but I can't wait to check out the Mandalorian!

I got logged in, but afterwards, it just says it's having problems connecting. Haven't even gotten to look around yet.

After watching The Mandalorian (interesting, thus far), I get this at the moment.
Can't say I'm too surprised. I imagine their servers are being run ragged.

I got that for an hour or more on my phone and firestick before I was finally able to watch THE MANDALORIAN. Looks like content is slowly trickling down to my devices. It kept saying THE SIMPSONS wasn't on the app for me yet and now it is.
