Observations not worthy of their own thread


#1

Lots of muscly men around these days I’ve noticed.

Has there ever been another programme like Game of Thrones where you’re just waiting for certain people to meet up?

I could have sworn I had more.


#2

A feature on Netflix to see how long you’ve spent perusing the different categories compared to how long you’ve actually watched something on there would be slightly interesting.


#3

I’m increasingly of the opinion that any observation is threadworthy


#4

I would like a feature on Netflix akin to ‘I will never watch this’, to streamline your choices a bit going forward. That’d be nice.

Also, Nissan Jukes are officially a girl’s car. Wouldn’t have guessed it at the start, but it’s happened. Up there with the Fiat 500 and Audi TT.


#5

Yes, we know.


#6

Also a rating system that makes any kind of sense would be brilliant too so I don’t have to keep on shifting between IMDB all the time.


#7

what do you mean witches?


#8

Was looking at a comedy category on Netflix the other day and there were loads of Polish specials from a comedy club in Warsaw. I mean loads. How did that happen?


#9

#10

it just shows percentages that I think relate to what I’ve watched in the past? Like any horror film gets a really high percentage because I obviously quite enjoy the horror genre. Is that how it works?


#11

I don’t know, it might be


#12

I think that’s how it works. It’s a nuts way of working because it recommends shit like My Family to me, and endless comedy specials from appalling stand-ups.


#13

Yep, it’s just a stupid system and is very unhelpful … EXAMPLE —

Netflix gives this a 95% match based on what I’ve watched in the past -

I would never watch this because it only gets 3.7 on IMDB.


#14

Is Shudder worth subscribing to via Amazon Firestick?

I’m a big horror fan. Looks interesting.


#15

I just cancelled my shudder account because I can’t watch it via my tv yet, I don’t have a firestick or Amazon prime…

Um, I liked it though! Can’t you just trial it for a wee while see if you get much use out of it?


#16

I’ll give it ago on a free trial. The problem is I’ve got too many subscriptions going on. Netflix, Amazon Prime via a LoveFilm subscription, Mubi as well as the big one which is Sky (with sports but not movies).


#17

you shouldn’t live your life (or netflix viewing) by IMDB scores.


#18

I don’t.

But it is helpful when you’re feeling indecisive.


#19

Oh yeah, me too! That’s why I skimmed down on a few yesterday. I canceled Audible and Shudder. I just wasn’t using either of them as much as I should. I wanted to use Shudder more but until I can use it on more devices it’s a bit pointless :cry:


#20

Any slightly recommendations from Shudder from you?
