The Disney+ thread of ever-growing entertainment monopolies

Owl House season 2 has started on Disney+ today, at least in the US! First five episodes are up so far. (I don't know if more than five have aired.)

YAAAAY! (By all, even the season that just ended? Also, is that just in Canada or did they give it the Simpsons treatment in the US?)

Being on season 12 of the Simpsons, Bob's Burgers has what that show ends up losing. So human and for the most part, it tends to remember that this family is just scraping by.

Up to season 10, no idea about the US.

Oddly, season 9 and 10 were available in Canada, but only with Star. Now it’s in the regular part of D+.

Im sure there’s some clever reason for that

Is Futurama covered on D+, or is that more of a Hulu kind of show?
(He says, having most of the episodes on Amazon anyway)

AFAIK, it is in Canada and not for all y’all’s.

Disney Plus is, like, the only streaming service that’s better in Canada

Except when it comes to Owl House, it seems, because it looks like we don't have those 5 new episodes the US has.

But now I can FINALLY catch up on Bob's Burgers since I last watched Season 7 and till now it only had seasons 9 and 10, and I wasn't skipping poor season 8 just because of the poor judgement of some upper management type.

Okay, I get why she's a Hawaiian girl now, but why is her obnoxious friend some kind of talking weasel...?

I mean even if you did drop Amphibia for Owl House, you backed the right horse.
You take this back. Amphibia is the fucking queen of the castle.


Also, you know what is awesome but i haven't heard anyone talk about? The Mysterious Benedict Society. It's incredibly cool and charming, and properly mysterious and paranormal for an investigation show. great cast too.

Yes, that Russian author.

Completely agree. There are several extremely strong child actors in that show, my 6 year-old is totally into it, it's dark at times without causing nightmares, and the design elements and wit are strong enough that I enjoy watching it with her.

Can anyone else in Canada access the STAR content?

I seem to have the stuff that was US exclusive, like X-Men Evolution, but STAR has disappeared; not sure if that's a me problem or a weird hiccup in the system

Still seems to be a category I can access. Maybe a hiccup? I'm using it via Roku, if that matters.

According to... what I presume was a human (albeit one on the verge of failing the turing test), my issue with Disney + not showing me CUSSING SHOWS is a widescpread one and it's being worked on

So a huge number of Canadians turned on their kid filter in their account at the same time? Weird country. =p

Any child can look through any window and see someone watching American Horror Story or It’s Alpways Sunny in Philadelphia at any time.

It’s the only way to be safe

I decided to make the most of STAR inexplicably disappearing by watching some of the Marvel cartoons we don’t get in Canada.

And either by letting acceptance into my heart, or else Benjamin J Grimm (where he lives rent-free anyway), STAR came back and now I can watch all kinds of shows with cusses and blood.

Disney+ released a sequel/reimagining of Home Alone where the “burglars” the Kevin stand-in is torturing are a low-income couple about to lose their home who are just desperately trying to get back a priceless doll they think the kid stole. That’s a choice.
