Netflix: One Day at a Time

Recommended Posts

In that case, what about a cable network?  The more I think about ODAAT going to one of the "Big Four" (or Five or Six), the more I'm afraid that network will interfere creatively and cause viewers to complain and jump ship.

Why doesn't SonyCrackle pick it up?  They produce some original material.  StartUp, for example.

Snatch (which I admit to never having watched), is actually a remake/reboot/whatever of the Guy Ritchie movie.

Is there a reason why SonyCrackle hasn't gotten in on this?

What the [!@#$%^&*] is SonyCrackle?

I feel like that's a convo they'd have to have up front given the background of this show (especially at ABC given their black-ish controversy, which led to them getting dinged by critics and having Kenya Barris begin a slow exit from the network) and either agree to terms or not at all.

 

I don't feel FX or whatever is a good place for it. Who watches sitcoms on those unless they're reruns? I feel it should be on network or streaming.

SonyCrackle (formerly just Crackle) is Sony's streaming outfit.  I don't use the service, so I don't know whether they have remained free (with ads), but I know they offer a mix of original stuff and shows from the Sony library.

 

Given that Sony owns ODAAT, too, having new eps run on SonyCrackle makes tremendous sense.

@VeeSonyCrackle (used to be known simply as Crackle) is Sony Entertainment's online ad-supported streaming platform.

 

They generally stream mostly older titles (primetime TV and movies) from their catalog but they also produce original content.

I'm sure Sony is considering the move even as we speak.

Last I knew Sony Crackle was free, they had Season 1 of Who's the Boss? on their last I knew. I dunno if it would be a good home for ODAAT or not

 

Ad-supported.  They also produce original series/

 

Crackle was known for being the distributor of Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians In Cars with Coffee, where it built up a large following before Netflix scooped up the series in a multi-million dollar deal with Jerry Seinfeld.

That's what I'm saying!  ODAAT's cancellation can't be put down to financial reasons, because Netflix has renewed other series that cost way more than a half-hour, four-camera sitcom ever would.  They've just decided that they want a demographic other than the one ODAAT was bringing.

 

(By the way, I watch neither ODAAT nor any other series on Netflix.  But I still think this stinks.)

 

It does ring hollow and it's really suspect. I'm glad so many have been outspoken towards Netflix. I knew they'd get a swift reaction but never expected so much backlash. Sadly, I doubt it gets the show picked up anywhere.

 

Netflix wants to make movies and have high profile stuff. But what they're doing is forgetting what made them special in the first place. It'll eventually backfire. I can guarantee you many will be hesitant to work with them. Maybe not because of this but it does show their true colors. Of course, I've never been a fan of the man running the company (Ted Sarandos? He seems out of touch, personally)

It's really lovely to see the celebs who are trying so hard for the show even though they get nothing in return. It just reinforces how important One Day at a Time is to many who otherwise struggle to have a voice.

 

It resonates for a lot of reasons. The cast is stellar. The writing is fabulous. The stories are relevant and interesting. It's a fantastic show. As someone not latinx (but I am gay), it still speaks to me in a lot of ways. But I've always been one to enjoy diversity.

:o Teehee

 

I hated the show and couldn't get half way pass season 1. So I am glad it was canceled. I knew with no dvd releases either that this show was toast. BTW....I am latino and it totally bored me.

I hate the show too. Everyone overacts in a cuties pie manner. Everything is WAY to OVERDONE.  They beat you over the head with the fact that their Spanish. I tired recently to watch i couldn't.  It may not be our cup of tea. But Netflix should've given them an ending.  Maybe someone will pick it up. They clearly have a loyal fan base. This incarnation of  ODAAT wasn't for this gay Latino.

Justina Machado's acting is pretty far from cutesy pie overacting.
