Nebraska: Rotten

In Nebraska, you’ll find some real salt of the earth people. Located in the heart of the American midwest, The Cornhusker State is well known for being home to many farmers. Obviously, there won’t be many Netflix subscribers out there who just want to watch a run-of-the-mill farming show or something, but there is still a great food series on the streaming service that takes its cues from the farming culture of Nebraska: last year’s docuseries Rotten. This docuseries doesn’t take viewers directly to The Cornhusker State, rather, it takes heavy inspiration from that local farming culture.

Unlike so many other food docs, Rotten shows its viewers the dark side of food production. In one season of 6 quick and fact-packed episodes, it covers everything from peanuts to poultry to milk. This show is definitely not going to make you hungry; it might just make you sick. It’s completely grounded in truth and facts, tackling corruptions in the food industry that you likely never even guessed could exist.

We should point out that while Rotten isn’t “edge of your seat” entertainment, it’s certainly “explosive.” Netflix produces a lot of docuseries, so it’s something that the site has gotten down to an artform. Rotten is the perfect food-centric addition to the streaming service.
