I think the results of this study into Netflix surprising at first, but it might be explained by how critical audiences are.
As brought to life by an interactive chart on Surfshark, one of these VPN sites eager for geek business, the United States has the embarrassing combination of “most titles available” and “lowest average IMDb Audience rating”.
Meanwhile, also a power player in terms of library size but also with very high IMDb audience ratings is India.
I can’t run that infographic here at Geek Native, but I can show you these maps;

Why do you the US and Canada seem to dislike their Netflix collections more than anyone else?
