Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things.

And that's good for the cast and crew of The Shawshank Redemption, because for a while things were looking grim!

Today, on the anniversary of its 1994 release, we look back on the Tim Robbins/Morgan Freeman prison drama as one of the greatest films of all time; it's even the number one rated movie of all time on IMDB.

But did you know back in when it was first released it was a total flop??

Luckily, the Oscar nominated film finally found its audience on home video and thousands of TNT airings.

But it wasn't the only film that wasn't appreciated during its initial release…

Watch out, Morgan Freeman!

Aziz Ansari was a standup comedian way before getting nominated for Emmys for his groundbreaking series Masters Of None.

Though it looks like the Parks and Recreation alum might be adding yet another job under his belt as a nature documentary narrator!

This week, a Reddit user discovered a Netflix glitch had caused an episode of BBC's Planet Earth to be re-edited with subtitles from Ansari's standup special Live at Madison Square Garden!

The streaming service has not commented on the flub, which means there's a chance the "glitch" could have been purposely made for some in-house cross promotion — after all, Masters of None is a Netflix original show…

Intentional or not, the subtitle swap lead to some hilarious (semi-NSFW) screen grabs! Ch-ch-check out some of the funniest stills from the mixup (below)!
