Heartofice Posted April 23, 2022 Share Posted April 23, 2022 6 hours ago, Deadlines? What Deadlines? said: The Crown... Bridgerton... Derry Girls... Peaky Blinders... The Witcher... Love, Death + Robots... ...not to mention really outstanding first seasons of Squid Game and Arcane I mean I agree with your point to some extent but not sure this list proves it. Peaky Blinders and Derry Girls are just UK shows that Netflix has bought and didn’t make. The Crown has been going since the start of Netflix, a bit like Better Caul Saul, a legacy of Netflix’s initial direction. The Witcher and Brigerton I would say are EXACTLY what he’s talking about. They seem almost created to please the algorithm. Brigerton cobbles together a number of successful elements and constructs a thing that people will watch.. but is it great tv? Squid Game is something that just exploded. Then how long will these shows last? They aren’t designed for longevity. The point being that great shows that might have been given 4-5 seasons and allowed to grow, are not on Netflix, that’s not how it works. Oh and on the Ads thing, no I wouldn’t be ok with them. Even now I notice them on other platforms and hate it. Netflix’s core USP is the ability to jump quickly from one thing to another, scan around to find things you like. You can’t do that if you need to watch a few ads before something starts Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
