Netflix makes some good stuff; Mindhunters, Travellers, etc.
If that's what you qualify as Netflix's "good stuff," I think we can all safely ignore you opinion on films and television. You, like the critics, are entitled to your opinion. It just happens to be, you know, pretty disingenuous to ding the movie for a lack of subtlety or not enough world-building when it's really God damn clear from the start that it's supposed to be an easily-accessible action-fantasy film.

You're in a pretty small minority if you think Mindhunters isn't good: Metacritic 79 with a user score of 8.4. IMDB score of 8.7, etc. Travelers also sitting at 8.0 on IMDB. So when you say "we can ignore" I'll assume you're using the "royal" we.

It'd be crazy if we ALL agreed on exactly the same things, even in a forum as small as this one. If we did, I'd probably stop coming here, it'd be too weird.

I can see not liking Mindhunters... it's well done, but it's based on faulty pseudo-science. It may even be encouraging the concept of profiling in the public view, but then again there have been a dozen movies and TV shows about that crap.

Travellers starts off as pretty simple sci-fi, and doesn't even hint at anything great until late in the first season(But they are great hints, which is why I'm still interested! ). I'm a few episodes into the second season, and I'm afraid they may chicken out from the hardcore sci-fi path, since the show got a little popular. We'll see.
