More from Netflix

I love Netflix’s recommender system because it comes up with the most bizarre categories, like:

Aren't all weddings emotional?  I mean, SOMEONE must emote SOMETHING at every wedding.

Aren't all weddings emotional? I mean, SOMEONE must emote SOMETHING at every wedding.

I also love that somehow Father of the Bride and Rachel Getting Married constitute a category. There are white puffy high top sneakers in Father of the Bride, father-daughter basketball games, and a narrator for goodness sake. Rachel Getting Married is an emotional movie, and there is a wedding, but I don’t know that it’s an emotional wedding movie. Still, I love that Netflix created this category, and you should too because you got to read 100 words of me blathering on about it!

    Netflix’s recommender system has been cracking me up lately too. My most recent ‘personalized’ genres have included “Feel Good Movies featuring a Strong Female Lead”, “Sci-fi/Fantasy based on classic literature”, “Feel Good Gay and Lesbian Romantic Comedies” and “Goofy Slapstick Comedies from the 1980’s”.

    Which probably isn’t that far off…
