    For sure, are they not paying the writers and actors on this particular show? I couldn’t find anything on it.

      Residuals. Netflix treats their movie and show portfolio like it’s being rented by a handful of people instead of viewed by millions. So, residuals on a show like One Piece might be in the dozens of dollars instead of the deserved 10s of thousands. And while that might not impact principal actors all that much, writers, crew, and lesser actors depend on residuals to live between gigs.

            Fails miserably at what? Making a deal in their favor, for sure. I think all of the subscriptions have been great for creators to get their work out, they should pay the creators and all people who work on the projects for it though.

              Oh, I just meant as a company in general. Realistically I hope the writers and actors strike a great deal and Netflix pays what it owes
