Netflix History Analysis

Marla and I have been Netflix subscribers for a long time now, starting just before Emma was born in 2002. Initially this is because we didn’t trust a babysitter to watch our little treasure. (Now, of course, we couldn’t find a babysitter crazy enough to watch all three.)

We dutifully watch a couple of movies each weekend and I can’t remember the last movie we actually saw in the theater. I’m thinking it was probably the Lord of The Rings trilogy… which ended in 2003.

At any rate, I just casually did a search for “Netflix Analyzer” to see if I could find some patterns in the data set. (This is a recent topic of discussion at work.) The Netflix History Analyzer by John Watson was the top result.

Our history analysis is below.
