The area of Netflix’s original lineup that has been the most controversial is their science fiction content. While shows (Stranger Things, Black Mirror, Altered Carbon, Lost in Space) have received rave reviews, their feature films (The Cloverfield Paradox, Spectral, Bright, Mute) have been less than well-received. Could The Titan break that streak? (Spoiler Alert: It doesn’t).
While Netflix has had its fair share of misfires this year, one area they have excelled in is the reimagining of the modern rom-com. After When We First Met and Kissing Booth, could Set It Up be the third in a hopefully long line of successful romantic comedies that change how this genre is viewed?
You won’t mind being bothered by this one.
