New On Netflix In October

It’s October, the leaves are falling and some of our favorite movies and shows are “falling” off of Netflix.  On the Comics side of things we will be losing some Wolverine Cartoon episodes, but that is about it from the Geek perspective.  I am personally sad about Losing some Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure, The Hunt for Red October, and Saturday Night Live. My son is missing Sid The Science Kid-Season 1 from PBS but is hoping Season 2 appears soon.

September is a big month over on Netflix.  We have some great additions, but are losing a lot of “Geek” favorites.  First, the bad news–depending on how you look at it–is that we are losing “Transformers: Age of Extinction.”  We are also losing the original Star Trek movie from 1979 and the newest one “Into Darkness” this month.

On the bright side, we are gaining the first season of “Gotham,”  the highly rated series on Fox about Bruce Wayne’s home town.

For the complete list of whats coming and going when, check it out after the break and let me know what you’re going to miss most.  Our thanks to CNET for compiling all the Netflix comings and goings. Continue reading New On Netflix In September
