Welcome to the weekend. Before looking back at some highlights from the last few days, we'll take a look at an ill-timed MoviePass outage and consider what we're really losing without Netflix's review section.
On precisely the kind of night people might want to hit the theater, MoviePass was down for hours. The service told subscribers to buy tickets the regular way and submit receipts for reimbursement later. It finally resolved the issue just after 9 PM ET.
Many people didn't know it since they didn't appear in its apps, but Netflix has always allowed users to write in their own reviews on its website. Now the service says they'll go away next month, closing a vector used both for legitimate criticism and occasionally troll bombing. The only question left now is whether or not they'll be missed?
