    Blockbuster: Netflix’s Latest Release is Simple & Sweet, but is it a Blockbuster? Review

    The Ironic setup by Netflix’s Blockbuster

    The irony that Netflix, a company that has effectively taken Blockbuster out of business, is making Blockbuster a series show that takes place inside Blockbuster Stores is probably one of the most interesting things about the new sitcom, Blockbuster. New and confused? Well, if you are a person who loves nostalgia, this is a series for you of the struggle of an Offline Video Store which provides the facility of selling or renting movies in hardcopy form, and here we are all set to explain what the series is about and how are the viewers liking it.

    About The Series & Review

    Having ten episodes in its first season, Netflix’s latest presentation has the look and feel of pretty much every sitcom. It is not surprising that it was initially developed at NBC before being picked up by Netflix since it has that look and feel of network sitcoms of a decade or two ago.

    Blockbuster is set at the last remaining branch of the movie rental shop Blockbuster Video store, a business that was mostly brought down due to the growing popularity of online streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon(there is a real-life Blockbuster branch in Oregon, but the show is set at the fictionalized branch in Michigan). It begins with one customer confessing that they have not been inside for three years, ever since they were stuck with Netflix, so quick credit to the makers of the show.

    Though there are complete ups and downs in review based on this sitcom, one thing is for sure there are plenty of movie references in the series that people may know and feel related to the quoted dialogue at a few points.

    Nonetheless, it is good to give it a try if you want to watch something simple, and if you still feel in doubt then check out the trailer below:
