Netflix Doesn’t Think Quality And Quantity Are Mutually Exclusive

I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that Netflix has played an important role in revolutionizing the TV experience. Sure, even before Netflix came along with their shows, audiences were binging shows on DVD, but it was only when Netflix made a habit out of dropping full seasons of shows on their service that it REALLY started to take off.

And yet, despite all the praise Netflix has received, they are not above criticism. Many critics out there — myself included — have noticed their “throw everything at the wall” approach. They create and acquire so many shows, and with that, there is bound to be some duds — and many, do they have lots of ’em.

But is this necessarily a bad thing? Netflix’s head of original programming doesn’t seem to think so:

“Quality and quantity are not mutually exclusive, and our goal is to provide both. A dozen shows a year wouldn’t satisfy our audience.”

She certainly has a point there, and while many out there would still criticize them for just throwing money and acquisitions at the problem, it’s hard to argue with their results. As reported by TheWrap, Netflix has garnered 112 Emmy nominations, defeating the 17-year champ HBO.

“HBO has led the way for many years and we have great admiration and respect for their team,” Holland said to the outlet. “But we are most excited for the talent we work with, whose hard work has been honored by their peers.”

How do you feel about Netflix’s approach to TV, and with it, do you feel that their racking up the Emmy noms is inevitable? Sound off down below!
