So, Reign starts next week on the CW. I'm still planning on watching and snarking, but as I was acquiring Web of Fear this morning, I discovered iTunes already has a season pass available.

For $9.99.

Realize that almost every other CW series is priced at $49.99 for a season pass. For The Tomorrow People and The Originals, season passes aren't available yet, but the shows are priced at $2.99 each. If Reign is priced at a similar level, then it would take only 3 episodes before I recoup the cost of the season pass. Um, not exactly what I would call a vote of confidence in the success of the series.

Yet, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the CW has ordered an additional three scripts for the show beyond the original order (presumably the usual original thirteen). Maybe iTunes made a mistake? In any case, I snagged it at that price, so there will be plenty of snark about very pretty people wearing costumes that in no way resemble those worn in 16th Century France. And Lola. Don't forget that one of Mary's ladies in waiting here is Lola, so there are plenty of opportunities for Reign/Agent of Shield mash-up jokes.

Oh! Are they actually remaking the UK kids show? Or is the name a coincidence? I can't say that I remember the plot, just that it was British kid sci-fi and I loved it at the time.

And yeah--that price point for Reign doesn't exactly inspire, lol!

I recommend Netflix streaming, as they have last season shows up.

More important question: are you still in the US? California, right? Because the CW has episodes up within 24 hours of airing on their website.

We have actually just gotten hooked on Arrow because we were curious and it was available on Netflix. (Much more entertaining than I'd expected.)

Yes, still in sunny (and slightly chilly) So Cal -- and fortunately our cable company offers episodes on-demand starting the next day. This one, though, I think I want to have available to pull screenshots from because I can already see Gifs.
