    I'm looking forward to this. Hopefully it lives up to the high standards set by the original movie. Based on the teaser it looks like it probably will live up to it.

    Not sure how Netflix makes any money on stuff like this. For 15 million dollars they need to add over 100,000 subscribers to make it pay off.

    well, they have a global audience, way more than networks do, over 40 million people watched stranger things on the first day, in the first quarter this year I think reports estimate 20 - 30 million new subscribers so up to almost 160 million globally (it was around 20 mill in 2012)

    well, basic math wouldn't, but who ever wrote that cant do simple math, $279 million a year? if every paying customer was on the basic package, that works out at around 1.6 billion a month in subscriptions!

    At any rate these over the top shows such as The Dark Crystal need to get a ton of subscribers to justify their expense. And to think this is an episodic series and not just a 2hr movie - wow that's a lot of CG material being created and with todays finicky audiences a huge gamble. Not much up side to this IMO.

    From what I saw that seemed to have high production values. HBO has a long history and backed by WB, plus they have fairly high subscription rates. I don't see Netflix winning long term due to their huge spend on original content and no other outlets to sell it. They were the first to stream on such a massive scale but they have to come up with something else in the long term.

    I'm sure "simple math" answers all the complexities that surround a business model. I'm not so sure much, if any, CG is being used. Most of the development patterns the original film. I don't know how successful it will be. When I saw the original I thought it was a great idea put on film, and, assumed the kids would really like it. They weren't all that impressed with it.

    There is a lot of cg, but mostly practical,

    its for dads and the nostalgia trip. you are talking about it; its working. kids watch something else, dad flicks this on, renews subscription and goes back to altered carbon & black mirror.
