@unclegrambo indeed. Netflix is missing opening tag lines, location names, and foreign language subtitles, at least in S1-3. Prime has them.@asperschlager Has taglines in the opening credits, location labels throughout, and subtitles for foreign-language stuff.@unclegrambo @kumailn Great news (though Amazon Prime is still the best way to stream it).@thegynomite In a dimension in which Elvis was never born, it will have to do.But when are we going to see Strong Bad's emails? #Fhqwhgadzi
