Netflix started 2018 with almost 118 million subscribers and went on to win its first feature-film Oscar. It briefly surpassed Disney as the most valuable U.S. media company and lured the likes of superstar show runners Shonda Rhimes and Ryan Murphy, not to mention Barack and Michelle Obama.

We all can recognize the folks on first dates: shades of eagerness, awkwardness and fumbling conversation. Netflix recently released a dating series that will make you cringe or cluck with empathy.
