Netflix is good for two things: to binge watch shows and then to binge watch more shows. Throw some movies, a couch, and some snacks in there too, and you've got yourself the perfect Netflix scenario.


Just like any good life partner, Netflix knows what you like. It knows that you like your shows, but it also recognizes you like to reminisce about your past. Specifically, the shows you watched when Netflix first made its way into your life. For some, that was 10 years ago (before binge-watching was even a thing).

From there, you'll either be pretty proud of your younger self's taste in content... or slightly embarrassed.
