I was horrified to discover the other day that The Wild Thornberrys, which is indisputably one of the greatest television shows of all time, is no longer streaming on Netflix. This is a travesty, and I will not stand for it, for Nigel Thornberry is a True Hero of the small screen.

Indeed, it doesn't look like Netflix is adding The Wild Thornberrys to its streaming repertoire in April, but we are getting a few new goodies. These include both An American Tail AND An American Tail: Fievel Goes West; Gremlins; and Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey, a film during which my parents had to take me out of the theater because I cried so much when the cat went in the water.

Criminally, we are also LOSING some of the greatest television shows in history, including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, House, and The X-Files.
