It's been a whirlwind year for Netflix, as it attempts to stay well ahead of the curve. Unfortunately, most of CEO Reed Hastings' attempts have backfired, from raising the subscription cost to his attempt to spin off the mail-in DVD service. He also revealed that Netflix's ultimate goal is to become more like HBO, and that the service would like to be 60 percent original content at some point in the future. The first step toward that goal was smart: They made a deal to make 10 new episodes of "Arrested Development," paving the way toward a feature film. Since then? One boneheaded idea after another.
First they tossed around the idea of picking up the little seen, not very good series, "The River" after its cancellation, and this week it was reported that Netflix has approached CBS about reviving "Jericho," a series that has gained a decent following post-cancellation on CBS, but that wasn't that great to begin with (at least after a solid opening season).
What show do you want Neflix to resurrect?
