In a damning article about the Netflix MH370 series in The times Famed wreck hunter David Mearns (above), a UK-based US marine explorer, is quoted via Twitter expressing disappointment.

The series is “dominated by Jeff Wise and Florence de Changy, ridiculously unsupported
conspiracy theories,” he wrote.

He added “Inmarsat is real, Blaine Gibson is real, the plane is in the southern Indian Ocean. Continue the underwater search.”

David Mearns is one of the world’s leading shipwreck hunters and has found HMS Hood, RMS Bismark, HMAS Sydney and the German raider Kormoran and was part of the team that found the world’s largest battleship, the Japanese Musashi.

He also holds five Guinness World Records, including finding the German Rio Grandewhich was at a depth of 5,762 meters (18,904 feet).

Even series director Louise Malkinson has admitted that “it is (MH370) highly likely that the aircraft is in the southern Indian Ocean”.

The Times article criticized the series, saying: “While two of the three episodes are devoted to conspiracy theories, the series offers only brief rebuttals. Australian search officials are outraged by the claims. Mike Exner, a member of a monitoring panel of aviation experts, called the claims a distraction. “I’d hate to talk about Florence or Jeff or those conspiracy advocates,” he said. “These are people who don’t really understand the facts and data.”

Another critical article of the series comes from think big who captions her article with the headlines: What happened to flight MH370? Don’t believe what Netflix’s documentary tells you.

Author Alex Berezov begins by saying, “Other than National Geographic, I’m deeply skeptical of documentaries. It seems that many films that label themselves as such are primarily concerned with presenting a polished, highly compelling narrative – but whether that narrative is true is secondary. Depending on the subject matter, a documentary that opts for a casual relationship with the truth can range from mostly harmless entertainment (like Animal Planet’s mermaids) to nefarious propaganda (like that of Michael Moore Fahrenheit 9/11). Unfortunately, the new documentary from Netflix, MH370: The Missing Planeis more related to the latter.”

Alex’s article is a great read that clearly outlines the Netflix series’ many flaws, and you can read it all here.

He concludes: “Video is a powerful medium. People believe what they see, especially when it’s coupled with a compelling story. That’s why dictators around the world make sure they control the TV news. But instead of telling a true story to the 239 suffering families and the general public, Netflix used the pain inflicted by a terrible tragedy to spread lies and conspiracies to increase its viewership. Shame on you.”

YES, shame on Netflix for taking the relatives through bizarre and totally unsubstantiated stories that are fantasies at best.
