The time of the purge is upon us.

No, it’s not a reference to the horror film with the same name but should still fill you with dread as things we love are about to be taken from us.

Netflix has been known to clean house on its collection; after all, licensing and rights to films expire. Today, it was announced that starting on July 1st, more than 70 titles are set to expire to make way for new programs.

Sadness, right? It may be time to do a quick binge watch as the deadline approaches.
