As for new things for you to watch, the whole run of original Batman movies up to Batman & Robin will be available right off the bat, if you have the stamina to make it through them all.

Meanwhile, we’re saying goodbye to so much more with the loss of Mean Girls, E.T., Forrest Gump, Gremlins, both Miss Congeniality movies, the first season (and a few others) of the Pokémon anime, Police AcademyPulp Fiction, The Addams Family, The Mighty Ducks, The Parent Trap, all of Lost, and a few more you might miss.
