    • The Explained series is amazing. There are two more Explained series called the Mind Explained and Sex Explained which are highly recommended as well. Too bad they were not included in the list.


      Our Planet and Night on Earth are so good too!

      This might be the most cringe comment I've seen in a while. I also pay for Netflix. I don't need people to GENUFLECT in front of me.

      Let's get real here. 99.9% of all content on Youtube is garbage. Netflix releasing high quality, educational material on Youtube, is a welcome step to changing that.

      I'm relaxed. I just think your comment was hilarious. Netflix is still running at a ridiculous deficit, so technically, Netflix investors paid for these documentaries, lol

      None of which was actual profit though. They have a huge deficit and have come close to collapse numerous times.

      I love Netflix and have had a subscription since I gave up paying for cable. Netflix + antenna + Plex = big savings and quarantine sanity.

      Speak for yourself ... some of us like garbage.

      But on a serious note, there are always great documentaries on youtube. a lot of them are transient, unofficial posts that get deleted after a while, but then again youtube has always been a fickle place, sorta like a thrift store, lots of stuff you wonder how folks can ever watch, then one or two unbelievable gems that do not last forever.

      I too am a Netflix paying customer from way back when their streaming service first appeared in Canada.
      I too do not need GENUFLECTS.
      I will accept if somebody offers to pay my subscription for a month or two.
