Stream while you can.
Depending on what you’ve been binging on Amazon Prime, you may have to take some vacation time and kick it into high gear. There are several movies expiring from the Prime catalog in June, but the biggest blow comes in the form of several multi-season series. We’re losing Whedonverse entries Firefly and Dollhouse, which is a bummer, but at least they’re both relatively short. Far worse will be the plight of anyone who’s in the middle of an X-Files or NYPD Blue binge.
Unfortunately, Amazon was the primary streaming home for the ‘90s cop hit NYPD Blue—it’s not currently available on Netflix or Hulu. The good news is, most of these shows have come and gone several times in recent years, as contracts expire and are then renewed. Hopefully Blue will be back on Prime soon. And if not, the also-excellent Southland is about to premiere on Hulu in June, so…
As for X-Files, Netflix still has your back.
