Two nights ago I was browsing through my Netflix looking for a potential stand-out for my monthly sports documentary review. As regular readers are aware, at the end of each month I like to discuss a 30-for-30 film, products of ESPN’s wonderful documentary series. Well this week I had the rude awakening that Netflix may or may not have purged the entire documentary series, as I can no longer find a single title on there. I tried every key word I could think of that might pull up the titles, but to no avail.
The Netflix addicted are well aware that the service regularly gets rid of stuff to make room for incoming new material on a monthly rolling basis. According to the internet, January saw the disappearance of merely a few ESPN film titles, but what I have found so far has proven that that’s not entirely true. There are, as of right now, no more 30-for-30 films available through this platform. Weirder still, I cannot find any article online that corroborates what I’m experiencing.
So for those of you who have Netflix, could you do me a huge favor? Would you mind checking on your own account to see if you can find anything related to the series? Anything with the umbrella title 30-for-30? And would you mind letting me know in the comments what you were able to find, positive or negative? Pretty please with a cherry on top? While I feel like this is going to be a fruitless attempt to confirm what I already fear has happened, I am still willing to believe that maybe this is just an issue on my end. Anyway — thanks for your help and as always, happy watching! (And here’s to hoping my documentary reviews can continue!)
