Netflix is fucking with me.

I always knew there was something not quite right about Netflix. I love the service dearly, but seriously, Netflix, you can ease up on the damn pop-up ads. Everyone knows what you do already.

Seriously. Stop.

But now I'm fairly certain Netflix is just fucking with me for their own amusement. See for yourself:


"Hi Miranda. Netflix Recommendations here. Remember that time you liked a Demetri Martin comedy special? Good times! Based on that information, we think you'll enjoy nothing more than a documentary about whaling."


"You love Arrested Development! And when that one guy loses his hand? Hilarious! So watch Macbeth. His hand is bloody! Do you see the connection yet??"

"What? Shit blows up in Caddyshack."

"You like documentaries about dudes being assassinated!"

"Because you like off-beat comedic TV series, you'll like this nature documentary. Similarities!"

"Because you like Spaceballs, you'll enjoy Star Wars! What do you mean 'it's the other way around'? That doesn't make any sense."

"Sometimes we get high and listen to The Beatles."

"Death!"

Yeah I think that Netflix is defiantly fucking with you. How long will it take to make Miranda blow up? Clearly your Netflix knows nothing about you and I'm sorry for that. Lol

It's not even that the suggestions are things I won't like- I do like Roseanne and Star Wars, and I would be interested in watching Patrick Stewart in Macbeth. Their reasoning behind the suggestions is completely random though. It's like in high school math class when you would do a problem in a completely wrong way, yet somehow still end up with the right answer.
