Netflix: Geography, Age, and Gender do Not Determine TV Show Taste
In an era or big data and information, it's pretty easy for a advertisers to determine how target you. You show up as a 23-year-old female, and they feed you a lot the ads related to fashion, celebrities, and makeup. Things I'm not really interested it...
But put an ad for cheese in front of me, TAKE MY MONEY.
See? I have the tastes of a 50 year old woman. And what I love is not necessarily what I "should" love for my age.

Netflix came out with this exact idea. They stated that geography, age and gender are "garbage" for determining interest.

Seriously though, what determines what people like to watch?

I have a guy friend who binge watches the Bachelor. Meanwhile my grandma is obsessed with Breaking Bad. It just doesn't make sense to relate gender and age with tastes.

Is there something you love that we wouldn't expect?

I love Top Gear and Antique Road show. I'm pretty sure I'm outside of the target audiences for both of those shows.

@SasiaWalz My oldest too! She knew the moment she first saw Bones that she wanted to be a forensic anthropologist. She goes to college in a few months for her first semester of dual enrollment, and she lucked out and was able to get into Intro to Anthropology...I can't wait to hear about how much she enjoys it!
