Netflix Is Yanking These Movies and Shows on February 1, 2015

Netflix is expiring a slew of movies and TV shows in February -- but don't panic! As we previously reported, several BBC series including "Doctor Who" and the original British "The Office" that were once set to leave Netflix on Feb. 1 are staying put. However, several other BBC titles will be disappearing Feb 1. According to Variety, bid a sad toodle-doo to "Fawlty Towers," "Blackadder" and "Mi:5." (Don't worry, "Sherlock" isn't due to expire anytime soon.)

As for movies, the clock is ticking on "Zodiac," "Batman Returns," "Apocalypse Now," and "Mad Max," which will also be pulled in the monthly purge.

Here's the complete list of titles that will vanish from your streaming list (pending any sort of meddling time-travelers):

Celebrate Earth Day With BBC And Fantastic Giveaways

Earth Day is right around the corner, and it probably isn’t any surprise that BBC Home Entertainment wants to help you celebrate. They have an amazing sweepstakes going on right now (see full details below), but with the release of Frozen Planet, I want to give you something to win right here as well.

It’s awfully difficult trying to compare to an actual Polar Bear Adventure, especially one that includes serious treks into Polar Bear country, dog sleds, and airfare, but I think I’ve got something you’ll be interested in.

As I’m sure you well know, when it comes to Earth Day possibilities, there are no shortage of titles available from BBC, and I have a great selection in store for you. As long as it’s Earth Day, we might as well take a look at… well, the Earth. While we’re at it,

DVD Review: Wild China

Photo: Warner Home Video In conjunction with taking on the origins of the Earth I also recently traveled to the land of China via another BBC nature doc called "Wild China" narrated by King Theoden himself, Bernard Hill. "Wild China" was seen on the BBC in May and June of 2008 and here in the States on the Travel Channel in late July and early August. The DVD and Blu-ray hit store shelves on August 5 and is made up of six, hour-long, segments focused on not only the wildlife of China, but also the way it affects and interacts with human life.
