Netflix always seems to toy with our hearts. Just when you get a good binge going of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, they take it away forever! That's right: on Apr. 1, seven seasons of Buffy will vanish forever. We must also bid adieu to other staples, like The Princess Bride, all seasons of The X-Files, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and so many more (all listed below). How could you do this to us Netflix? Bueller?

But while tons of favorites are disappearing for good, their April roster promises to deliver even more content to stream, from topnotch new originals to oldies debuting on the service for the first time (like Gremlins!).
