Blockbuster’s long and re-winding road

This definitely qualifies as a Homer Simpson, head-slapping, growling Marge, Doh! moment.

Someone who works for the local Blockbuster franchise group told me Blockbuster and Netflix were in quiet talks a few years ago about joining forces.

Knowing what we know now – as I reported this week, that things are so bad the local franchise group is closing its remaining Blockbuster stores in Memphis – it’s not hard to imagine what the Simpson patriarch would exclaim.

Doh, indeed.
