Netflix has quickly become America’s movie and media outlet of choice. 38 million households subscribe to satellite television. 48 million households pay for cable. 60 million American households subscribe to Netflix. Currently offering more than 5,500 titles for streaming, Netflix is a massive media source available at your fingertips.
Have you ever stopped to ask, what am I watching? I’m not talking about asking that question from the perspective of whether or not you like the show; as in what would you recommend to a friend. I’m talking about questioning what we watch from the perspective of content. Do you realize that Netflix is not simply a massive media source, but if you subscribe to Netflix, or have a television in your house for that matter, that what is on that screen is the largest library of worldview content in your home.
In this message I evaluate several of the most popular shows on Netflix for their worldview content. Pop culture is full of post-modern and secular themes. What are they? How can we be discerning, but at the same time have a helpful dialogue with our culture? These questions and more are answered in this concluding message to our culture series at Liberty, Brainwashed.
Watch the entire Brainwashed series on My YouTube Channel.
