and the dull nature of Netflix original content
Different strokes. Personally, I'm loving their original content!
House of Cards
Orange is the New Black
and now Stranger Things
I've heard Bloodline is good, and Luke Cage is coming. Some of their comedy specials aren't too bad either. Ali Wong's "Baby Cobra"...I haven't laughed that hard in a while.
For me, it's been a long time since I've been this happy with video content. I recently ditched cable and I'm not going back. Netflix is, at the very least, doing it as well as most anybody else is and without the support of commercial sponsors.
How much time do you want to spend in front of a television anyway?
