Dear Mr Hastings [CEO of Netflix],
The final 8 episodes of Breaking Bad start airing on August 11 in the US on AMC, and we’ve discovered that they’ll also air weekly on Netflix UK.
I have seen an unreasonable number of bad movies in my time. Yet there is one that is so gleefully horrid that the first time I saw it, I sat in awe of the sheer shittitude that confronted me. Battlefield Earth was released in 2000, and depicts the human race’s struggle against an alien race known as the Pschlos (seriously – Hubbard added an “L” to the word Psychos in an attempt to be clever.) It stars John Travolta as the leader of the ridiculously named alien race, and it was based on Travolta’s religious icon, L Ron Hubbard’s book of the same name.
