I'm guessing for this to have had any shot at a S2, over half of Netflix subscribers (35M+) would've had to watch the entire series. They probably ended up with about 1/10th that on the first episode which trailed off after each subsequent episode.

This was doomed from the get-go.

Netflix just seems to have really poor control for all these things.

They keep making bad movies that cost fortunes, and bad shows that cost fortunes.

Lemme see, it wasn't the actors, they were the D-list come to life, it wasn't the special effects, and it wasn't advertising.
So, hookers and blow?

I think someone did some creative accounting, because the CG, costumes and set looked like something the CW would shiat out. And not even a "good" CW show, but the crap ones.

Using the same type of math, explain what Amazon is doing with their Lord of the Rings series set during the second age. Starting points: total cost for Amazon is looking to be around $1B ($250M was just for the RIGHTS).

I think they partnered up with the Franklin Mint to produce a series of replica rings and a whole slew of commemorative plates based on the well loved characters in that series such as...um....there is....well, obviously those and so many more to help pay for the series.

I don't entirely get Amazon compared to Netflix. I mean, Prime Video is just something that gets thrown in for free when everyone buys prime for free shipping. Shipping is the product, the video just seems to be some kind of weird add-on feature

I am almost believing that Netflix original programming is just a money laundering project where they accidentally have some hits much like in UHF.

Avengers: Endgame cost north of $500,000,000 before the WRETCHED CGI. It's around $800,000,000 total. It made a profit, but nothing amazing ($400m).

Into The Spider-Verse was around $120m and made a BOATLOAD...

But The One In Black is still King (SWIDT?):

Venom: Passion project. $80m. Made $1.3 BILLION and is still one of the top ten streamed movies monthly. Only The Dark Knight, Superman 2, Thomas Jane's Punisher and Spider-Man 2 can stand next to it when you critically grade superhero movies. It's openly recognized as a masterpiece by both BAFTA and the AMPAS.

/It's also the best cosmic horror film since The Shape of Water and John Dies At The End.
//but, it's #2, since Nic Cage (you beautiful SOB) got us a near-perfect adaptation of The Colour Out Of Space.

In its defense (cause I did watch the whole thing and reaction was at least more positive than negative), the show did have a decent story in there. Random superheros do not have the magic, draw, or longevity as anything from Marvel or anything from DC. Cut the brother as the 'secret' villain and focus on the father/son moral argument and the flashback origin. Wrap up the one story you wanted to tell with the assumption there is no season two with maybe a few seeds dropped on how things could continue.

FrancoFile: Maybe, hear me out, maybe the audience for comic-book movies has been maxed out.


You have to understand the comic. First, it is really really stupid. Second, it is only 10 comic books long and tells a complete story. They could have done the whole story in one 2.5 hour movie. Third, in the entire first season, nothing happened. The entire season covered stuff that happened in the first two comic books. Something that takes ten minutes to read took 8 hours on screen. Fourth, nothing happened in the entire first season. The audience doesn't realize it (SPOILERS) but the protagonists are Chloe and Hutch. FYI, The Utopian and his wife are murdered by the superheroes in comic #3. Yeah, the whole story is just a bunch of posturing nonsense.

I think the audience detected a crappy product that was dragging a simple story out way too long.

Doing boring and standard superhero shows is probably tiresome, as this shows.

But if you want to bring some cleverness into it, you get The Boys and Wandavision.

Dragging a simple story out for way too long is also a defining characteristic of a Netflix show. Normally more prevalent in their documentaries, but also there is the scripted shows.

Peak server load for business activities occurs during...wait for it...business hours. How do you get value from those servers outside of business hours? Find a workload that peaks outside normal business hours, such as streaming entertainment content to the workerbees during their downtime. Its called leveraging your infrastructure to maximize ROI.

I assumed most people were like me. They saw the value in Prime shipping, but didn't think they bought enough to make it worthwhile. I usually don't have Prime (I turn it on and off) because I almost always are buying things that qualify for free shipping without Prime and the stuff I buy on Amazon I'm not in a rush to get. The increasingly large number of exclusive shows on Prime Video have put it over the edge and made Prime worthwhile. The Expanse, The Boys, Maisel, Man in the High Castle, Upload, Utopia (I like the Cusack version almost as much as the UK version).

No.

It's primarily an accounting decision, not an engineering decision.

AWS' costs are covered by the revenue from their umpty-thousand corporate customers.  Including the extra capacity built into every data center to handle surges.  But with so many servers being provision-on-demand, Prime Video can use them when they'd otherwise be lying idle, at near zero marginal cost (just the power, cooling, and amortization).  If there's a demand spike that happens in every AWS region & data center (which is unlikely), then AWS will prioritize those customers in order of their TOS terms, while Prime Video sucks hind teat and gets significantly degraded service and bandwidth.

If Amazon lost an antitrust action and had to spin off AWS, then Prime Video would suffer greatly, because it wouldn't be getting all that hardware and networking stuff for basically free.  Right now they can plow all their money into rights, because the other AWS customers subsidize the hardware and communications costs.

Maybe. And maybe I'm bringing my priors into this cause I find the free shipping to be incredibly useful and always have it.

And I'm not saying it's a bad streaming service, it does have good shows. Just that, with Netflix I understand that the shows drive subscriptions. With Amazon, it just isn't so clear cut a case.

99% of the flashback origin story was invented for Netflix. The origin was covered in five pages of book #2 and it started on the island. There is no backstory. The group are on an island, scale a wall, walk through a magic door and aliens there are going to give them powers. The reason they were there is that the aliens called them in a dream.

There is only so much money available to produce original content. With so much of that being funneled into the superhero flavor-of-the-week it doesn't leave much budget available to explore other genres. The $200 mil spent on Jupiter's Travesty could have been better spent, IMHO. So nobody is forcing me to watch superhero stuff but they are limiting the selection of genres that get to produce fresh content. And for your next question, no, no one is forcing me to subscribe to Netflix, and I will likely drop it if they don't get their act together.

You are clearly someone who hasn't dealt with Enterprise scale computing, which is ok. It is much more expensive (time consuming) to turn these machines on and off.

Think of it like this: you have a big bucket of magic beans. You lend out a few handfuls to a business, they use the beans, then return them. They might need a few, they might need a lot. During business hours you dole out handfuls of beans. Off hours, the businesses still need some of those beans, but not all. Now you have most of a bucket of beans, not making money. You hand out a single beans or two to video streaming. That is one way that this could work.

That is. . . ugh. Throwing this in with the Snyder stuff as motivation to change careers by writing for tv and film. I was expecting and would have gone with some kind of reverse Lovecraftian cosmic horror - like an angel who described in the Bible all multi-headed and weird - with the code tied to its judgement of humanity as a whole.

How much of that is marketing?  And costs that only exist to make profits for the studios and straight to exec's wallet.  "Hollywood accounting" is a thing, and movies don't make a profit for a reason.

I'd be equally surprised if the same accounting isn't used for Netflix originals.

Jedekai: Avengers: Endgame cost north of $500,000,000 before the WRETCHED CGI. It's around $800,000,000 total. It made a profit, but nothing amazing ($400m).

Into The Spider-Verse was around $120m and made a BOATLOAD...

But The One In Black is still King (SWIDT?):

Venom: Passion project. $80m. Made $1.3 BILLION and is still one of the top ten streamed movies monthly. Only The Dark Knight, Superman 2, Thomas Jane's Punisher and Spider-Man 2 can stand next to it when you critically grade superhero movies. It's openly recognized as a masterpiece by both BAFTA and the AMPAS.

/It's also the best cosmic horror film since The Shape of Water and John Dies At The End.
//but, it's #2, since Nic Cage (you beautiful SOB) got us a near-perfect adaptation of The Colour Out Of Space.


Let me try this again:

What are you, farking re-tard-ed?
