Another Fantastic Netflix Documentary - Gripping To The Last Second
15 January 2018 | by neener3707See all my reviews

If Netflix has done anything right, it would be their original documentaries, and this is another fantastic docu-series, about 3 groups of men who work as "stringers", people who film accidents, shootings, and other news worthy stories to be used in the local news. They roam the streets of often dangerous neighborhoods searching for that next big story. These 3 compete for the spotlight of local news, a competition that grabs your attention and never lets go. The job affects and changes each of the subject differently, some much more severely than others.

Not only do we get to see amazing footage of fires and car crashes, but we get to hear the inner workings of the men who film it. Some question the ethical implications of filming death and destruction, some see it as a mechanical and precise job that puts food on the table, and some just done give a f***. The men also each have their own way of approaching the job, and how those ways clash and work against each other is fascinating, so fascinating that you won't be able to stop watching this program, you will binge it.

Only problem is there are only 8 episode and you will find yourself utterly yearning for more, but thankfully the final scene sets things up for a sequel, so we might be getting more.

Highly recommended to viewers of all kinds
