After the creation of Netflix in 1997, the typical way of watching TV has drastically changed. Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph invented this American entertainment company in Scotts Valley CA. Netflix is now the 10th-largest internet company, right behind Ebay.
Netflix is constantly adding titles to their stream, providing their customers with new content and entertainment. It has become common to hear friends arguing over which Netflix series is better, or discussing unseen plot turns of specific episodes.
Landin Winter, ‘19, says that while he has recently binge watched ‘The Vampire Diaries’, his all time favorite show is ‘Dexter’. He also says, “I think that Thirteen Reasons Why is overrated, it’s just boring and confusing”. He also thinks that ‘Santa Clarita Diet’ is very underrated. He says, “I think I’m the only one that watches it”.
Helen Webb, ‘19, on the other hand said, “Glee is my favorite show, a lot of my friends watch it too”. She often binge-watches ‘The Office’ and she thinks that the series ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ is very underrated.
Both Winter and Webb said that ‘Stranger Things’ is probably currently the most popular Series on Netflix.
According to Google, the top-watched series in 2017 were: Stranger Things, Orange is the New Black, House of Cards, Black Mirror, and Narcos.
