If you’re like me, you have subscriptions to Netflix, Prime or whatever film and TV streaming services are available in your country. I’m a self-confessed binge watcher and there’s nothing I enjoy more than working my way through a new TV series (or an old one if I’m feeling nostalgic). But I just can’t help but think about what improvements could be made or what new features would add value.
It can be hard sometimes to run a small business, especially if you don’t have any staff to support you.

Either way, there’s plenty of them out there at the moment, from recent iterations of Charmed and Roswell to Macgyver and Hawaii Five-0 and people seem to be enjoying them.
