The Netflix series 'Surviving Escobar' is as good or better than the HBO series 'Soprano's'...
Hispanic TV, series, movies, ever bit as deep and good as Anglo TV or movies...I was bias, also, at first, but in reality, South Americans live more 'grounded lives' than do gated community Anglo American directors...as such their movies are more 'real to life'...even with sub titles...
The Netflix movie has subtitles, I've never been so captivated in a TV series in years, since watching this one, well worth it, will be glued to screen...no sub titles here in this short promo..
I'm thinking about maybe getting netfix again, as I let subscription expire about 5 months ago, changed cards and just never updated it.
I have more time off now, and must admit get a bit bored just sitting watching antenna TV, although I do prefer antenna TV over cable TV.
I mean you get the same channels on antenna TV that you do on Cable TV, minus the infomercial shows and sports channels and a few others, but my gosh, the array of shows you can get for free with rabbit ears, is amazing, 'Decades', all the detective shows, 'MeTV', 'Bounce', 'Movies channel', local news, and more, just depends on your location.
And then with youtube, you can often find partial airings of favorite movies anyways.
So actually no streaming channel really needed anymore.
But, but, still, it's nice now and then to just be able to sit down and watch movie play all the way through.
I usually chop movies up over a 2-4 day period, rather than watching all on one sitting.
But ye, I may get Netflix again, and maybe even another streaming channel as well, I mean why not have more than just one?
Life is short, better live, enjoy stuff while healthy, before you get sick and stop caring.
Many days off, so once again wondering if I should resubscribe to Netflix, seems like a easy question for most, I mean prices ranger from around 9-15 dollars a month, that's not much at all for limited TV shows, and movies.
But I remember when I had it before and this is what I found to be the case.
1. No matter how many movies, or TV shows, you're still only interested in actually watching a very small % of them. I mean sure, 600 shows, but how many actually grab your interest? So what happens is after a month or so, you're going in circles and wondering which show or movie should you watch again.
Also I noticed it seemed the movies I really wanted to watch I had to 'order'. You know like when you type a movie into the 'search bar', and seemed all the movies I craved to watch, I would have to order the DVD....that's annoying cause when you want to watch a movies, when you're in that mood, you want the movie now and not later.
And not only that, but it seems the movies you want to watch are always owned by the competing streaming companies like Hulu or Disney, or Amazon ect.
So to really get a rounded selection of movies and channels it would almost make more sense to order like 2-3 streaming platforms instead of just 1.
Then you're talking 50 dollars a month or so for 3 streaming platforms, is it worth it?, would it be?
It's almost like getting married (I wouldn't know), in that as soon as you think you've found mate of your dreams, here comes 2 more the next day, and you're like 'dang, why didn't I just wait a few more days?'.
As far as Netflix goes, or nay streaming platform, its all really clever marketing cause in the end you don't need any of it, I don't need any of it, rather we, they, convince ourselves that suddenly what you've done without for a year, years, is suddenly a 'must have' item, but is it?
And also as a 'content creator' myself, often times someone like me can waste hours watching shows, and all that does is take away from my own creative time.
I'm paying for others to be creative, but who's paying for my own creativity?
I'm mean whether you get paid nothing, and only get 4 views, or whether get paid millions to perform and get millions of views, a artist is a artist, and see each other as competitors, all competing for views and recognition.
But even artist often turn to other artist for idea and creative content.
So in the end, do I need Netflix?
They do offer a 30 day free trail, maybe I'll try it out, I did it before and trail period is legit, so maybe I'll try that, and maybe Hulu and Amazon have the same trial periods, who knows. Hell, I could write a whole book on whether to get Netflix or not, again, like the writers of content on Netflix, I to am a writer, but don't get the credit they get.
One thing for sure, if it takes me this long to decide if I should get Netflix again, than means I don't need it just yet.
One thing for sure know I don't need is HBO, even though they too have entered the Streaming video race.
But HBO has about forever got a bad reputation to me in that can never forget how on Cable TV they'd always play the same movies over and over and over again, and the movies HBO aired were like 20 years old!
Yes, HBO, on cable, would like premiere 20-30 year old movies, what a joke.
And I can't forget how I was always so disappointed with HBO, I mean if you want to watch 20 year old movies or tv shows, free antenna TV can deliver that, rabbit ears can deliver that.
Decades channel, free, 'MeTV' free or 'Movies', free, all from rabbit ears.
So what a rip off HBO was, in that they would charge people for movies you can see for free just by having rabbit ear antenna.
I just can't get that bad taste out of my mouth, just like what a rip off cable was, charging you for 100's of channels you never watched, loading packages down with 'shop online shows', which again can get for free.
Then not being able to dial up shows, like with streaming.
Or having to pay for expensive sports packages, so why should I trust HBO streaming service?
I mean especially if the same rats who ran HBO cable are not running the streaming service.
And that may be unfair for me to say that, but money lost in the past on HBO can never be earned back.
