Buh-bye, Netflix. And that $5 billion trash pile. “content,”You should not miss it.
Netflix is a service that my wife and I have used for more than ten decades. We loved Netflix at first. It was simple to scan a menu and press a button. Netflix was a new service with tons of amazing content. It’s there where we discovered Breaking BadI was able to catch up on a lot of great movies. Things got even better with Netflix’s exclusive series — The Crown, Longmire, Stranger Things, Money Heist, Mindhunter, Cobra Kai, House of Cards… Unfortunately, there are no other options. Cobra Kai,All of these programs either died, were lost in creative thinking, or became gay.
Netflix has some great true crime documentaries. These documentaries feel like homework. They’re too long, too wakeful, too manufactured. How can you describe it? Forensic FilesExpertly completes this task in just 22 minutes. Netflix will punish you with more than four, six or eight. Ten hours.
There was something new on Netflix every day for years. It’s Friday night; you’re looking for something new… Netflix reliably filled that hole.
For years, there was something to anticipate on Netflix: a new show, a new movie, a new documentary coming out next week or next month…
It is a frustrating exercise to scroll through Netflix’s menu. I’m paying $16 a month for this? I’m paying nearly $200 a year to fund what is nothing more than a $5 billion pile of crap?
Don’t get me started on what Netflix calls “movies.”We have seen countless Netflix Original Movies over the years. However, the only memorable one, the only title I would even consider purchasing on Bluray, is Eddie Murphy’s Dolemite, It’s my Name. All the rest have been wiped from my mind, discarded, disposable or forgotten with open hostility.
Near the end, we hung on because my wife enjoyed some of Netflix’s TV shows, but those TV shows all came from another network.
Breitbart content and occasional reviews remained my focus.
She has devoured every single one of her Netflix programs. She has also found tons of TV and movies for free through Tubi, Pluto, FreeVee and FreeVee. Some of these shows, unlike Netflix’s garbage offerings, are worth the effort.
Eventually, we’ll return to Netflix, but we’re about to become streaming skaters… When Netflix compiles enough worthwhile content, we’ll dip in for month and then dip out. One streaming service will be available at a given time. When it’s not Netflix, it might be Paramount+ or Peacock or Disn— No, not Disney. Never Disney. My conscience won’t allow the enabling of the sexual abuse of children.
The problem with Netflix lies in Woke, who has vandalized and desecrated art. Netflix TV is no longer a way to relax in front of the TV. It’s not what I would call a fun time, paying $16 per month to be insulted. Netflix is a left-wing trolling outlet, and I’m tired of being trolled.
To keep me occupied for the rest my mispent lives, I have plenty of TV shows and movies. But my movies and TV shows don’t troll me for being a white, Christian, male, southern conservative, or because I believe in the dignity of the individual and that people should be judged on their character and not their skin color or sex habits. While some of my TV shows and movies provoke, challenge, and even question my thinking, others do this in an intellectual and artistic manner. Some of these movies and shows even changed the way I think about things. That’s what great art is supposed to do.
Those TV and movie shows, however, are about the most important thing. People, the human experience, our flaws, our virtues, and what unifies us all—the human spirit. While I don’t agree with Oliver Stone, I understand the struggle for truth. Jane Fonda may be a character I don’t like, but they are complex, flawed, real and relatable. While I may not understand everything Bergman or Fellini said, it is the pleasure of trying.
While most people look down on the state of today’s art and feel discouraged, you need to see the good side. For the first time in human history, we have access to all the art ever produced, and that includes movies — almost all movies. It’s all out there to be discovered and rediscovered. It’s a wonderful time to live.
Netflix has thousands and thousands of titles to choose from, and it’s still a waste of money at $16 a month. Netflix should be given credit. This is, I suppose, an extraordinary achievement.
