Review Stream: Netflix

Netflix, we have had a long-term relationship. Do you remember when you started off as a little company that would send me DVDs in the mail? I would list them in my queue, and you would send me the next one on my list if it was available? Oh, those frustrating days of waiting for the next disc to arrive when I was trying to binge watch a series. It was the worst.

I remember how excited I was when you rolled out your streaming service. I stood by you as you steadily increased your cost. It made sense. Quality product requires revenue. It’s crazy looking back now. The catalog of movies, television, and Netflix originals has increased substantially. The constant buffering and pixelation are gone. Your service is top notch. You have been my preferred streaming service for over a decade. But listen; this is important. You’re slipping. You have a lot of competition now. With networks creating their own streaming services and pulling series from your database, that puts you at a real disadvantage. You have Amazon Prime that comes nicely bundled with music, video, photo storage, and free 2 day shipping on products. Apple TV has put out several QUALITY series so far. HBO Max gives access to HBO’s archive of shows and movies new and old, great nostalgic series, and is just getting started with original material. Then we have Hulu that offers next day series, movies, options for live TV, and premium channels to be added on.

However as someone that is reviewing your many movies and series, let me tell you what frustrates me the most. You keep cancelling everything we love. Do you know how many people adore “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina”? Or how about when I review something like “The Society” and end my article with a note about how a second season has been promised only to have you come back and say you’ve changed your mind? Netflix giveth and Netflix taketh away. And I don’t liketh. I often write my articles before your cancellations are announced and published at a later date, so it makes me look stupid. Plus, I am trying to share hidden gems (or warn people of trash). What’s the point of getting started in a series if you are just going to abandon it? Please Netflix, do better. Blaming the pandemic doesn’t fly. Take the extra time to refine your production. We will still be here. The rest of the entertainment world is also in stasis. Please listen to the fans. If you don’t, you’re really going to miss us when we drop you for other streaming services.

Sharon Isom

Once upon a time, Sharon was invited to attend a comic convention. She had always wanted to go to a comic-con but thought it was out of her reach. While at this convention, she met Richard who asked her if she could write. She scoffed. Of course she was capable of writing. But then he clarified and asked if she would be willing to a be a writer for TBK Magazine. She agreed. Little did she know that she was signing on to become a podcaster, assistant editor of the magazine, Vice President of a publishing company, best mensch, and a sister. Her whole world would expand for the better after that trip in 2016. She would be forever grateful. The magazine would be her safe haven and the staff would become a part of her family. And still to this day, Richard has not fulfilled his promise of singing the cow song to Sharon.   Sharon was born in mid 1980’s and raised in Northeastern Arkansas. She has been married to her childhood sweetheart, Jesse, since 2004. They have two amazing sons. Outside of her official TBK responsibilities, she works as a nurse.   She loves theater, costumes, cosplay, and Halloween. She is addicted to Chapstick and will ALWAYS have at least one with her at all times. She despises spiral staircase, escalators, and people that do not understand how four way stops work.
