Don't forget "Intervention". It's like A&E has become the Mental Illness Channel.

They also own Lifetime, fwiw.

The TLC hoarding show is much better. And by better I mean horribly frightening.

I'll watch that, and then go look at my computer room, and think HOLY FARK I'm .01% on the way to becoming a complete pack-rat.
 
2012-09-22 12:23:22 AM
Storage Wars...or...Arrested Development...
Dog The Bounty Hunter or...Lilyhammer...
Hoarders...or...everything else on Netflix...
 
2012-09-22 12:25:01 AM
Meh, they haven't updated Hoarders for the last season and a half anyway.

It's AMC and not A&E, but this thread just reminded me that it'll be next year before Breaking Bad resumes, and then it's over for good.

F*ck you subby, for reminding me of that.

Anyone else remember when they used to air episodes of Law and Order?

I miss those days.

I remember they used to show tits on late-night "classic" movies, like Slaughterhouse Five. Not as good as Skinemax, but without scrambling.

We may have thought it was complete overkill at the time but when The History Channel was The Hitler Channel could now be considered a golden (or at least silver) age.

A&E used to be cool. I always liked their Biographies. THey should have never spun it off as its own network.
 
2012-09-22 01:34:05 AM
I don't even think we ever got any of those shows on Netflix in Canada.

/netflix.ca sucks

Which is now 72% ghost shows, much like Siffy.

Hell, they showed the Marilyn Monroe playboy centerfold uncensored at 8 PM in both the Hugh Hefner and Marilyn Monroe biographies.

So A&E is willing to deal but Netflix wants its cake and to eat it too...
 
2012-09-22 04:48:13 AM
No big loss. I like the old days of A&E, when it was Biography, and then either a documentary about Nazis or serial killers.

Reality shows never really fit in on that channel.
 
2012-09-22 04:56:25 AM
The only things A&E have going for it are reruns of Criminal Minds and The Glades.

stoli n coke: Reality shows never really fit in on that channel.


Sadly, network execs at all channels seem to think that all of their programming should be reality shows. When does it finally stop?! When people rise up and lynch them in the streets?!

Pawn Star Hunter Repo Agents in South Beach Picking Duck Statues and Fish Tanks out of Storage at War with Loggers and Fishermen Driving 18 Wheelers in the Snow while Fighting Alligators and Eating Food Vs Everybody.

It is on every goddamned channel now.

Survivor Wipeout and American Dancing with Idol Celebrities was bad enough.

But this 'reality' sh*t is everywhere.

It is unf*ckingwatchable.

I hate cable and network TV. It's like 99% shiat.

I would like a system where you rent a box for, say, $10 a month. On the box you select and pay for the shows you want to watch, without commercials or with, for less. That way, if you want to watch 10 hours of Law & Order in a row when you don't own DVDs of it, you're good to go. And sometimes they'll have shows for free (like a drug pusher, giving you that free taste). If the box is proprietary, then the companies selling content on it can be assured that you're not ripping them off (well, some clever person would figure that out, but let's assume that people are generally honest and would pay for a show they like if it was a small nominal fee).

All I'd ever watch:

News
Shows beginning with the word 'star'
Doctor Who
 
2012-09-22 05:47:21 AM
Hoarders and Intervention are pretty decent..The bearded ghost pawn truckers buying fishing ducks and hunting
gold hogs stuff is just silly.

Hoarders always makes me want to go throw something away..

Tune in next Wednesday for the premiere episode of A&E's newest reality show, Executive Lynching.

THIS! I once watched an hour long documentary comparing the various machine guns used in WWII. I'm still not convinced that the Nazi high rates of fire didn't compromise the supporting squad's combat functioning. But hey I wish I could see that documentary again. And again.

Netflix has all the Trek episodes, Firefly, The IT Crowd and The League. Not going to care about A&E shows.

Don't care. Netflix Streaming has been getting better and it has some recent movies available for streaming and some top titles available as well. Hopefully in five years the streaming will have enough content to let me ditch the DVD deliveries.
 
2012-09-22 08:34:06 AM
Sadly, those programs are better than 90% of current television.

There are folks that would pay to see that naked? Although O.C. has far,far more than it's share of unbelievably skanky strippers, most of whom look like they have been shooting non stop biker gang bangs since 1993.
 
2012-09-22 08:50:57 AM
Carol Burnett was quoted one time that studio execs wanted show that could be produced for $1.98. She wasn't wrong.

I wouldn't have minded seeing her before she had kids. But she is an OC mall rat for sure.

The whole Hitler Channel thing migrated to The Military Channel. All Hitler, all the time. Fatal Attraction of Hitler. Hitler' Bodyguard, Hitler's Mistakes, Collaborating with Hitler, Hitler in the Heezy....all followed by JFK assassination theories. And that bald SEAL who always speaks in a really intense whisper. So far no reality shows about a family-run Army/Navy surplus store yet.

Crap, I've had Hoarders in my queue for a year and a half now. Whenever I'm sitting on my ass when I know I need to clean my house, I watch an episode. By the first commercial break, I'm up and throwing things away. Now what am I going to use for motivation, besides the near-identical TLC show?
 
2012-09-22 10:09:23 AM
Looks like they removed the first 48, that's a good one. Netflix still has the shift though.

It was only a matter of time before a Netflix employee posted in here.

Maybe they're dumping the A&E crap so they can bring back Red Dwarf.

And Battlestar Galactica (new and old) still a load of good documentaries and a pretty good wrasslin library. The odd thing about Star Trek to me is, they have all the series + the cartoon. The only movie they have streaming is that god awful Nemesis. Anyone know why that is?

Science Fiction TV shows are pretty well covered on streaming, SF movies are pretty bleak.

Most favorite streaming movies I have seen lately come from China, High budget great action and plots, worth checking out...

Try Clean House. It's cloying and at times annoying, but it also has that same "Oh crap, I better get off the internet and scrub some walls" feel to it.

Has it improved since replacing Niecy Nash? I watched a couple of episodes but she was so annoying that I went back to watching a few minutes of any episode of Hoarders whenever I needed cleaning and decluttering inspiration.

They also have insurrection, I just watched it yesterday. Picard truly does hunt the mighty space MILF.

"The issue isn't only money, but also that Netflix is seeking some level of exclusivity that A&E is unwilling to grant."

Does this seem foolish to anyone else? I would think that Netflix would want all the content they could get.
