A piece about the cancellation of Netflix’s Bloodline published by Vulture Thursday afternoon revealed that each episode of the series (which is scheduled to end after its third season) cost “somewhere between” $7 and $8.5 million. Think about this for just a few seconds, and every muscle in your face will go limp: a family thriller starring Kyle Chandler and Sissy Spacek set in the Florida Keys that my coworkers inform me is “filled with people squinting” and taking “pregnant pauses” that wasn’t filmed in IMAX 3D and does not contain a single superhero, animated animal, or full-size replica of the Titanic will have cost Netflix somewhere between $210 and $255 million dollars.
