SCIFI NEWS FOR THIS WEEK IS BACK WITH A VENGEANCE!!! Right as I was going to record my show, there was news about a new Battlestar Galactica movie for the big screen. Being a BSG fan, I had to throw in my two cents on the matter.

On my podcast, I mentioned how watching Arrow for the past 4+ years is like dating a great woman. The first two years were amazing because the show was put together so well and frankly, you couldn’t get enough week to week. This is also the point where you discovered that your girlfriend has a hot younger sister called The Flash. Sure, your girlfriend’s sister is fun to watch but really, you’re devoted to Arrow. By the third year with Arrow, the first half started out good but things started to go downhill. This is when you start to say to yourself, ” That Flash, Bro!” Arrow knows that you’re watching The Flash; she’s not stupid. This is when she suggests that she wants to bring back more of the magic from season two again and breaks out that sexy Deathstroke teddy. Sure you like the teddy but you’ve been down this road before. Are you done with Arrow?

Source: Fans May Have To Wait Years For New DC Comics Shows To Hit Netflix, Hulu – Comic Book Resources

According to comments made by Time Warner Inc. chief executive Jeff Bewkes during a conference call with analysts on Wednesday, Time Warner may begin releasing DC-based series to Netflix and Hulu several years after they first air, rather than one year. In the intervening years, already-aired episodes might be available on-demand to fans with traditional cable.

*****Spoiler Alert*****

Those who have watched the latest episode of The Flash, Cisco delivered a great line, “You know, our Dr. Wells may have been evil, but you’re just a dick.” We know corporations are in the market to make money. Some may look at them as a form of evil but I would defend them. However, in a free market, companies have the right to make a product or service that consumers want and charge whatever rate to be compensated. If the price is too high and the demand is low, the invisible hand theory will come along and lower that price. On the other hand, if demand is high, the cost of that product will go up. However, what Jeff Bewkes is planning on doing is a very dick move.

There is no disputing the popularity of these shows. Some fans will watch the show week to week on traditional tv or cable or buy the complete season on dvd/blu ray. Or in other cases, catch up via streaming services like Hulu and Netflix. For me, it’s all the above. In all the different options I have to watch, one way or another, I will see my shows. What I gave up years ago was cable because of the high cost that was involved and plus the economic downturn other alternatives came up to fill the need of cable. Like many others, people are living without the need to watch cable tv and that is what is worrying companies’ bottom dollar like WB.

Cable tv is not dead but the domination it once had will never be again provided moves like Bewkes is considering does not happen. Delaying these shows can be dangerous game that the WB is playing. I mentioned on a earlier entry about CBS creating a new Star Trek series but only making it for their All Access streaming service. Sure, some fans will you their money and I believe that the majority of fans will not be supporting the show behind a paywall. Again, I understand their decision but what if Star Trek Beyond sucks? Will fans care about a new series on the small screen? When it comes to Arrow and The Flash, if delay or restricted early seasons, you may not capitalize on the buzz factor the show is generation because you’re just want the show only for those who have cable. The writing’s on the wall and I believe Bewkes/WB refuse to read it or maybe they can’t read it at all.
