    1. This is a Docuseries that doesn't have an agenda. It just documents the lives of stringers in LA. 2. given that premise, I believe the filmmakers did an excellent job of capturing what it is like to be a nightcrawler in the entertainment capital of the world. It covers the day to day struggles of the business, and it covers some of the effects the work has on the mental health of its stringers. 3. (Spoiler Alert) The one thing that prevents it from being 5 stars is some of the manufacturing of drama. Now, to be fair, there were real issues, especially with the smaller company, in competing with the big boys. However, at the end, the scene where they all met up seemed produced and not authentic. I do believe the smaller company is truly struggling to compete, so I wish that was more fleshed out. However, they didn't need to manufacture it. Overall, it's a great Docuseries that humanizes these people. You may not morally agree with their job, but they are trying to document life in LA. Sometimes, that comes with being at the wrong place at the wrong time, and does focus more on getting the shot than anything else.

    The moral ambiguity and raw thrill makes this a must see.

    I absolutely LOVE this show and so glad I gave it a shot. The stories themselves are compelling, but to watch how the three companies find their stories and deal with the competition really is fantastic. People may hate them as being "ambulance chasers", but those are the same people who want to see something on TV when they watch the morning news.

    Great show with lots of action. Don’t let other people’s poor reviews ruin it for you!

    One of the best series on Netflix, depicting the raw and gritty reality of some of the worst moments in LA and the men who cover them. The show provides a great examination of the different types it takes to accomplish a job, and how they try to coexist. Even in the stationary moments of the show, the action never stops. If you haven't seen Shot In The Dark, you need to.
