more netflix impressions

I guess, being surrounded mainly by the open net culture over the last years has made me a bit picky and also more sensitive to the things that go wrong in mainstream pop-culture.

Netflix has several good shows and movies, but the way they sort stuff and reccomend it isn't really as great as they advertise it. They just don't get things right. E.g. they added a category called women's power (the german word is more commonly used), but instead of putting thing like Persepolis in there or maybe Kill Bill or something like that, it's mostly romantic comedies, going down as low as Lillifee (this is a terrible supersexist german children's program about a pink anorexic fairy).

The net has spoiled me, I had forgotten, how much actual feminism has not really made it into the mainstream yet.
