I turned on Netflix and it suggested Kong: King of the Apes to view and I was like sure way not. Watched 5 minutes of 90s tier CGI and then checked the episodes. On the episode list there are locked videos that only unlock if you watch certain episodes. And during the episodes achievements will popup.

When you thought Netflix couldn't get any dumber.

I hate achievments of any kind. They don't serve any purpose at all, only so people can see the length of your E-penis.

I'd like some screenshots or something. This makes no sense. It's not that I don't believe you, I'm just not understanding this.

This seems really pointless.
It's pointless for adults, my son loves it.

Kong battles a monster and you get to pick one of Kong's abilities or gadgets for the fight, and s thirty second clip plays.

So It's picking one of two thirty second clips of Kong fighting the monster from the episode you just watched. That's it guys.

What a joke. Can't believe this is acceptable AT ALL.

What if I want to watch episode 7 before episode 6?

What am I even paying for here???
These aren't episodes. They're "battles"; little special features in between the episodes.

If you want to watch episode 7 before 6, go ahead and watch it. None of the episodes are locked.

My kids watched it and they liked it. Each episode unlocks a battle. Each battle has 2 options of "weaponry" for the ape to use. Each option gives a different outcome. If you leave the app alone, it plays everything in order. The battles are small 1 minute videos.

They should get that movie that is 720 hours long and if you watch it all the way through you get "Lord of the Binge"
And autodial 911 because you're probably dead.

lol

Does it help you to know that Netflix achievements don't earn you any amount of gamerscore? Same with YouTube (or any other app that has achievements).
