    Default netflix suggestion engine is pretty amazing

    I have a british tv drama section, visually striking drug movie section, foreign coming of age section and plenty of anti republican documentaries to peruse. i should've gotten neflix mad long ago

    Yeah it is a pretty inteligent system, except when I watch 2 seasons of breaking bad, and it doesn't appear in my recently watched bar.

    The system is terrible if more then 1 person uses netflicks. I watch science fiction, and my sister watches cutesy anime. So together our suggestions becomes science fiction anime which neither of us likes.

    so true. netflix is a terrible multiplayer experience. especially considering that you can't delete your history history or suggestions off. it's actually kind of a weird move on their part to remove these simple features.

    a while ago Amazon recommended me the King James Bible. these internet programmes don't know you and we need to talk to real people to get recommendations

    you've never used the netflix suggestions have you? it's built on aggregated searches and ratings by other PEOPLE mate

    it works pretty well showing me new movies and shows i'm interested in.

    just sucks that i don't want to watch certain things because anybody in the house could check my history if they wanted to, since i've got it streaming to the lving room tv, my tv, ps3, phone, etc.
