Very interesting. I do wonder what metrics the tech side looks at. One of my issues with Netflix is that I can’t keep up with their content. They release so much that by the time I get around to some shows I’m interested in, they’ve already been cancelled even though they were only release a couple months prior. I don’t generally binge watch either. At least not in the sense of watching a whole series in a day or two. It’ll take me two or three weeks to work through a season. There are definitely shows I had an interest in, but then didn’t bother with because they got cancelled before I had time to check them out.
It’s also gross to be that they’re out there renewing objectively awful shows like Insatiable and 13 Reasons Why, yet something like GLOW is on the bubble. But that’s a different conversation altogether.
