Are We Emotionally Ready To Return To Stars Hollow?

Just like any time you check in with a friend you haven't seen in a very long time, interactions can be awkward at first. Unmet expectations and feelings of loss are a definite possibility. These characters have been suspended in reruns for almost a decade and all of a sudden, they've arrived in our present. They're using smartphones for god sakes! If they don't act how we expect them to, our intimate relationship with them and the show is at risk. I have no doubt it will all take some getting used to.
The way we watch movies is changing, and Netflix is at the vanguard of this change. Since entering the Canadian market, the over-the-top movie and TV delivery service has given Canada's major telcos a run for their money, as they compete for viewers with their on-demand TV and movie services. Despite complaints by many that Netflix Canada doesn't have the same wide selection as its U.S. counterpart, the service has been making significant inroads in establishing itself on this side of the border. So who will win the great battle between over-the-top providers like Netflix and telcos like Rogers and Shaw? Only time will tell.
