I get really weird recommendations from Netflix. I was wondering if they might come up with some of the based on the cast (If you liked this movie that had actor X in it, you'll like every other movie he's ever been in even if they aren't at all the same.)
Mr. B likes action movies and sci-fi, I like documentaries, I get a lot of referrals for documentaries about the future and daredevils.
I wish that the Netflix engine would be that sensible. One major example of the engine's flaws.
My favorite television show of all time is Mystery Science Theater 3000
. But at Netflix, each movie/episode is listed seperately with its own individual page.
I have watched dozens upon dozens of episodes on Netflix streaming. I also watched dozens and dozens more of episodes on Netflix DVD. The lowest I have rated one of the MST3k's movies was a 3 out of 5 and that was under their short run Film Crew days.
About 90% of the time, I rate their films a 5 out of 5 with the remainder with a 4 out of 5.
One would think that if there are episodes I haven't rated on Netflix that they would be on the top of my recommendation list given that on Netflix its the most watched program (with plenty of rewatches in order).
But to find any episode that Netflix has left for me, I have to search manually through dozens of pages to see if any exist.
