Netflicks's original content has been downright embarrassing lately so I might give Amazon a shot.

Yeah... can we talk about this? Their Bill Nye show is just a nightmare. Girlboss? What the hell is that? F is for Family? Anne With an E? Ojka? Are these people losing their minds?

I think Netflix has become far more concerned with churning out show after show than making anything of quality. I can't imagine they expect anyone to actually watch half these things. But like the studios, they're using a scattershot approach-- making a dozen low-budget shows at once in the hopes that two or three of them become hits. But it's not working. In retrospect, House of Cards Season 1 looks more like an accident than a trend indicator...
You're so right. Their movies have that throw everything at the wall feeling as well. So many cheap thrillers and comedies. Shimmer Lake, The Discovery, and I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore felt like things I should be watching for NTS.

Damn, I'd heard good things about I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore. I suppose I should've doubted it from the beginning, though, given that it's Netflix.

They made one movie that I'd classify as "pretty good" (Beasts of No Nation), but since then I don't know what's been going on. They've even stooped to giving Adam Sandler a platform with stuff like Sandy Wexler and The Ridiculous Six. That confuses me even further, since it must be really hard to turn a profit with this business model, and Sandler is famous for inflating the budgets of his films.

Their overall selection of movies is bad too. I think it's because the licensing costs to offer streaming for really good movies is high in countries like the US. I read somewhere that Brazil has about three times more IMDb Top 250 movies available to stream on Netflix than the UK does. And holy shit, I haven't even gotten into stuff like A Series of Unfortunate Events, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and 13 Reasons Why. Those shows make me fear for the survival of the human race.

Netflix is a really great idea in concept, but if it weren't for the DVD ordering, I'd cancel my subscription.
