Autumn is bearing down on Alaska, and the Keefer Brothers are embarking on another unpredictable north-country adventure. The stakes are higher than ever as the September winds of change threaten to choke the landscape with ice and snow. The Brothers are forced to match wits with Mother Nature with very limited gear. They've been Dropped, with nothing but the clothes on their back and the sidearms on their hip for last resort predator protection. Supply yielding caches have been placed at predetermined locations along the way. The rules are simple; find and validate each cache on time, or lose its contents forever. Chris and Casey are forced to dig deep as they raft through mile after mile of rocky river, keeping their eyes peeled for enough scraps to survive along the way. The clock is ticking.

Dropped - Dropped ceiling - Netflix

A dropped ceiling is a secondary ceiling, hung below the main (structural) ceiling. It may also be referred to as a drop ceiling, T-bar ceiling, false ceiling, suspended ceiling, grid ceiling, drop in ceiling, drop out ceiling, or ceiling tiles and is a staple of modern construction and architecture in both residential and commercial applications.

Dropped - History - Netflix

Dropped ceilings and ceiling tiles were being used in Japan for aesthetic reasons as early as the Muromachi Period (1337 to 1573). Blackfriars Theater in London, England, built in 1596, had dropped ceilings to aid acoustics. U. S. Patent No. 1,470,728 for modern dropped ceilings was applied for by E. E. Hall on May 28, 1919 and granted on October 16, 1923. Initially modern dropped ceilings were built using interlocking tiles and the only way to provide access for repair or inspection of the area above the tiles was by starting at the edge of the ceiling, or at a designated “key tile”, and then removing contiguous tiles one at a time until the desired place of access was reached. Once the repair or inspection was completed, the tiles had to be reinstalled. This process could be very time-consuming and expensive. On September 8, 1958 Donald A. Brown of Westlake, Ohio filed for a patent for Accessible Suspended Ceiling Construction. This invention provided suspended ceiling construction in which access may readily be obtained at any desired location. Patent Number US 2,984,946 A was granted on May 23, 1961. Brown has sometimes been credited as being the inventor of the dropped ceiling even though other patents preceded his as shown in the table below.
