It's a fun show (Tom Ellis is is great) but...

I know we've been over this before (and I do feel bad about picking on the same company) but if you want to work on your skills seeing through PR, there is no better place to start than Netflix, in particular the ownership and shelf life of Netflix originals.

Keep in mind that the justification of the company's market cap rests on two pillars, sustaining dominance moving toward monopoly and building a content library that surpasses Disney/Fox, WB, and all the other majors.

It is difficult to reconcile that second goal with the ongoing practice of spending serious money producing and promoting shows that Netflix has little to no ownership of. It's a list that extends from House of Cards and Orange is the New Black to She-Ra and Avatar. A recent promoted tweet reminded me I've forgotten one.
