Very well made doc. Worth a watch
22 May 2020 | by williamgwaySee all my reviews

Really enjoyed this insight into the growth of Netflix. Does a great job with mostly excellent sources telling the tale. Very well edited to keep the pace and interest. Loved the backstory on Blockbuster, which I had either forgotten or did not know. I recommend this.
