I’ve always wondered how exactly Netflix goes about placing ‘suggestions’ in categories because I swear some of the things don’t add up at all. A ‘top picks’ list has majority of the Star Trek series, a show about secrets of Great British castles, a few sitcoms from the 90s and then all of the sudden – Cowboys vs. Dinosaurs. I was honestly on board with absolutely everything until that showed up. It seems to be relatively reminiscent of Sharknado and those terrible Mega Shark movies. What kind of guy does this computer algorithm think I am? I demand a recount.
