Derek -- Netflix Original

Rickey Gervais is jumping on the Netflix bandwagon. Looks very strong.

Not really the Netflix bandwagon. The pilot was out in the UK April 2012 and this series was shown in January 2013. It wasn't made for Netflix.

Interesting. So "A Netflix Original" doesn't always mean what it sounds like, I guess.

Even so, I like it. There have often been non-US shows I'd heard of and wanted to watch but didn't like the idea of getting torrents of them.

It is weird and slightly annoying that they are calling it an Original, but I like the concept of bringing UK shows here via Netflix.

Interestingly Breaking Bad is a "Netflix Original" int he UK this season.

I've seen Derek (the whole series) and it is a very interesting mix. Of course there's much humor, but there is also some disgusting stuff, some social commentary, but the most interesting part IMO was the heart that it has. There are some very dusty moments.

I don't dare say more due to spoilers.

Well put. The show can be a bit off-putting at first but it has some heartbreakingly wonderful moments as well, particularly in the final episode.

Wow, Netflix is doing some bold marketing by calling them Netflix Originals.

If they even get a portion of credit for Breaking Bad... wow.

I guess they are selling it as "Original Broadcast" or something like that.

Derek is no different than BB, they had nothing to do with it's making.

There are lots of shows being aired or streamed that are claimed to be originals when they're actually rebroadcasts of shows aired in another country. SyFy channel s notorious for this. The vast majority of their "original" shows are aired in Canada on various other channels before they hit the U.S.

Watched and enjoyed the first episode last night. The audio mixing was terrible. Very heard to hear a lot of the dialogue.

Does closed captioning work?
