UNDERRATED: The fall of Netflix

Seems like only yesterday that everyone danced on Blockbuster's grave while hugging red DVD envelopes to their chests, and now this once-beloved rental service is in a tailspin. A little schadenfreude comes naturally in watching a giant fall after colossally misjudging its audience, though it's a little sad to consider what might've been. If there's any bright side it's that another, smarter company now has an opening to do this right. Robert Sullivan, AFP / Getty Images
