I am sitting with one of my roommates right now trying to trick Netflix into showing us movies that we actually want to watch. Our Netflix (which we don’t even pay for) does not allow us to search. It lists movies and TV shows by genre and/or it suggests movies based on something that you have recently watched. So now I am sitting here watching a god-awful comedy about ice hockey. Ultimately, all we are looking to do is prove that we can be smarter than a machine by getting Netflix to provide us access to the good stuff (i.e. WARRIOR and LINCOLN LAWYER). If this works, I’m sure we will also be granted access to our fair share of some serious crap as well (i.e. ABDUCTION starring Taylor Lautner, NO STRINGS ATTACHED and MORNING GLORY). It’s nice to have options I suppose.
I am now an hour into this effort and still no closer to seeing anything I actually want to watch. The machine wins today. Now I am watching a documentary about MMA fighting. It could be worse.
