Netflix to help subscribers’ new year’s resolutions to watch less TV by cutting nearly 100 shows and movies 

As the new year rapidly approaches and people everywhere vow to lose some weight, learn a language, or maybe watch less TV and read a goddamn book every once in a while, Netflix is making it a little bit easier to switch off its streaming-video service: By January 4, American viewers will have nearly 100 fewer films and TV series to watch. As we reported in May, Netflix is no longer announcing these kinds of cuts, but a Reddit user figured out the impending changes and posted this list:

Mashable broke the news after A.V. Club Podmass contributor Maggie Serota wrote about it for Death And Taxes, making a crack that no one would miss Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back. Kevin Smith didn’t appreciate it, and that turned into a whole thing because of course it did. But Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot makes Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back look like Citizen Kane. And it’s probably best if we all purge our memories of World Trade Center, even though we promised never to forget.
