Well then why the hell did you say it was being “scrapped”? As much as I rave about not giving a shit about semantics, word-choice is huge with something that carries this type of magnitude. When I see the word “scrapped”, I think of that old show on Spike TV when they literally take every piece of metal from old cars in a junkyard. I imagined screenwriters and other people in the movie business lined up outside Sony, each being given a page of the script. Every comedy for the next ten years would have one joke that was originally written for ‘The Interview’.

But this actually is wonderful news. I may still not be able to see it in theaters, but at least I’ll be able to see it in some capacity. Hopefully not on “Crackle”, which is like the bitch-Stewie of streaming services. Just throw it on Netflix so normal people can watch it. The only people who use Crackle are the direct families of stuck-up Sony employees who refuse to subscribe to Netflix, HBO, and Amazon. I can imagine a father walking in on his son watching Netflix and reacting as if he was watching porn. Just pure disgust with the creature he brought into this world.
