Netflix flexing muscle with Eddie Murphy and “SpongeBob”
I should have called this article Netflex! Anyway, Netflix is flexing its muscles with some groovy announcements lately. Here’s the latest to rattle down the grapevine.
I grew up on Eddie Murphy stand-up and Hollywood movies. Beverly Hills Cop is pure nostalgic gold. If it’s as good as Dolemite Is My Name, then it’s going to be Eddie-tastic!
As for SpongeBob, I watched that show religiously with my daughter. Trust me, it’s not only for kids. Squidward, the character Netflix’s spin-off show focuses on, is a grumpy dude just like me. Perfect!
Netflix doing their thing
Netflix must have known it was going to lose content at a rate of knots to competitors this year. Most companies would have curled into a ball and cry. Netflix rolled up its sleeves and started going buck wild! Or so it seems…
Timing is everything
Netflix planned ahead. I’m both shocked and impressed.
Apple TV+ launches with See and The Morning Show — Blam! Here’s The End of the F****** World and The Crown from Netflix.
HBO cancels a Game of Thrones spin-off. It’s okay. Netflix has The Witcher for you in December. None of this one episode a week nonsense either, have the entire series. Why thank you Netflix.
Either, Netflix is flexing their muscles, or…
Netflix has a time machine
They knew that HBO would have Game of Thrones spin-off issues. They knew that Mr. Scorsese would have beef with Disney’s Marvel shows.
They knew it all! Keep your eyes open, wait for a competitor to announce something, and then watch Netflix’s impossibly-timed reaction.
This is why my prediction that Netflix will get purchased by Disney is absolute tripe! In big business, time machines gotta have an advantage right?
