The Netflix Death Note adaptation was almost good.
Refer to my previous article, or this one, for our full opinions on adaptations. In short, I think the only reason to make the Death Note adaptation was to bring the philosophy of the show to a new audience. According to that premise, and on a strict 0 or 1 rating scale, they did succeed. However, I think they could have done much better. Beware, spoilers ahead.
