The rise of streaming services like Netflix has allowed us to binge like we never have before, but it has also lead a new problem that we never would have expected to arise before. As rights and deals run their course and expire, easy access to shows comes and goes. Every month, Netflix adds more titles to its list, while at the same time others disappear. Some come back eventually, others don’t. There was a big to-do a while back, when it looked like Doctor Who was leaving the streaming service (it didn’t), and Red Dwarf is no longer available, and now it looks like if you want to marathon The X-Files, you better do it by the end of the month.
You can handle that, right? Watching nine seasons, all 202 episodes of The X-Files in less than a months? I have faith you can pull this off by April 1. You may have to call in sick to work, but that’s a small price to pay. What are you doing still reading this, you have more important business to take care right now.
