Q: Who is Netflix Bum?
A: It’s a collective of insomniac movie buffs, brought together in a quest to find the bottom of live-streaming Netflix.
Q: Have you found the bottom of Netflix yet?
A: Not yet. We thought we have reached it a number of times, smacking hard against its slimy surface only to feel it disengage and float down into the abyss.
Q: Why do you do it to yourselves?
A: In the spirit of a public service. We scrape the bottom so that you don’t have to.
Q: What’s with the categories?
A: There are five of them:
– How Did They Get Roped Into This? aka good actors in crappy movies. We created this category with Sam Neil in mind.
– Speed-Watch: Apply ‘click and drag’ function throughout, save your valuable time.
– Crap Worth Your Time: still crap, but possessing some redeeming qualities.
– Hidden Gem: either not crap, or crap so spectacular that it elevates itself to the instant classic category.
– WTF: PSA.
We welcome your suggestions (what should we watch next?) and feedback!
