-Jesus. After Netflix cancelled One Day at a Time, Sony TV immediately started to shop it around and was approached by CBS All Access — but a clause in Netflix’s contract prevents the show from moving to another streaming service. So not only did they cancel it while at the same time talking about the need for diverse storytelling, they also made it more difficult for the show to live on. Stuff like that, and this article on Netflix’s monoculture machine, have me worried.

-The first poster for Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time In Hollywood starring Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio has been released, and it’s rul bad. Why are they standing so far apart that one of Pitt’s shoulders doesn’t even fit in the frame? Why is the photoshop so bad that it looks like someone just pasted his face on another person’s body? How does this happen in 2019?
