Do androids stream of electric sheep?

Saeed Adyani / Netflix

There’s an existential question that the staff of The Verge has struggled with since we launched the site: what is the best version of Blade Runner? This May it’s going to get a little more difficult to make an evaluation, because the theatrical cut of the film is disappearing from Netflix.

It’s calamitous news, but of course, there will be similar things for streaming fans to watch in its place. On May 1st, audiences can witness a depiction of a futuristic world where intergalactic travel is commonplace when Airplane II: The Sequel arrives on Amazon Prime. And on May 12th, they’ll be able to ponder what it means to fall in love with someone that may — or may not — be human when Benjamin Dickinson’s Creative Control lands on the same service. Then on May 27th, everyone can experience a slow burn of dramatic intensity that’s had its gauzy unicorn dream sequence cut out when the second season of Bloodline is released on Netflix.

Okay, I’m taking an educated guess on that last one, but I’m pretty sure Bloodline is going to be light on the whole unicorn imagery thing.

And it’s not like Amazon Prime and Netflix are the only streaming services out there, either. If you have access to HBO Now, you’ll be able to watch all four seasons of the original Mr. Show on May 1st, which has nothing remotely Blade Runner-ian to call out, but is so good I’m mentioning it anyway. (Seriously, if you haven’t seen it before, just get HBO Now for a month and binge your face off. Send thank you notes to The Verge).
