The rating system on Netflix is, uh... a little inconsistent. I've seen movies that are objectively good hover under the three star mark, while trash like The Shannara Chronicles gets rave reviews.

There's a couple of conclusions we can draw from that. Either the general public has terrible taste, or its time to revamp how Netflix users rate the content they watch.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.


Whether you're 'and chilling' or not, a lot of factors must be considered when choosing your next Netflix binge, ratings being one of them. I had always assumed that those little stars reflected the average rating given by other Netflix users, but it turns out it's a bit more complex than that.
