Nooo! Netflix Is Losing Buffy, X-Files, Angel, & More!

no title

There are a lot of April showers in the forecast, but it isn’t rain. No, those droplets are actually the tears of millions of Joss Whedon fans.

Why? They just found out they have to dust off their old foldout DVD sets whenever they want to watch their favorite episodes of Buffy The Vampire Slayer — the entire series is leaving Netflix on April 1!

QUIZ: So You Think You Know Buffy???

Oh, did we say Buffy? We also meant Angel, Firefly, and Dollhouse! Oh, and fans of ’90s sci-fi can’t even cry on the shoulder of Fox Mulder because X-Files is leaving too!

Sadly no, this is not an April Fools joke. Anyone want to grab some Surge cola and 3D Doritos for a ’90s marathon??
