Netflix Advances

Being a longtime techie, but have been fairly late to services like Netflix.     Been impressed though in how they deliver a vast amount of goods and attract lots of people.  Less impressed by the quality of the goods.   Huge amounts of cheesiness and downright depravity.   But then I am probably not their main demographic.  Do they care, or are so many people aboard its all OK?
