So I’m watching Marvel’s Luke Cage on Netflix, which for one I must say is pretty lit. I love seeing positive images of black men on the screen succeeding, too many times I’ve seen negative images that at one point had me scared of myself, but another time for that. Anyway I notice there are perfect spots for commercials there.

It got me wondering if Netflix will one day pull a YouTube and throw commercials in, first start with 10 second ones you can perhaps skip a few seconds in. They’re slaves to their stockholders, who always want to the revenue go up.

Especially since they have so much original content and it seems like they’re going to keep on this path of making their own shows for the foreseeable future. Why not just throw some extra revenue from advertisers?
