Look, Netflix: get your act together. 

Sure, you’re packing well over 4,000 movies and TV series’, among them some truly excellent originals (House of CardsJessica JonesBoJack HorsemanStranger Things), stone cold classics (Hot Fuzz, Shawshank, Pulp Fiction, Whiplash), and enough documentaries to get you through several dozen bleary-eyed hangovers - but it’s not enough.

I’m all for ‘don’t ask, don’t get’, but it feels like there’s more chance of the White Walkers cracking open a cold one with Jon and the boys than this happening. 

Now that would be a marathon.

Turns out (most likely due to complex licensing arrangements they can do little about) a lot of stuff is missing.
