But the BEST PART is scrolling through your queue 20 times trying to decide what to watch.

And then watching the next episode of whatever you just watched.

Is "shuffling your Netflix" a euphemism?

I don't want my Netflix on shuffle.

What I want is a way to remove shows from my Currently Watching list so I don't have shows that I watched half an episode of and didn't like taking to space.

I tried the shuffle thing once, and my Roku almost crashed. I'd like to have a playlist function for Netflix and Hulu instead of a random shuffle.

My friend's (now dead) wife accused him of being gay because he watched Frazier, which apparently has real-life gay actors, and Netflix started recommend gay programming for him. Gay.

I suppose there is a Disney+ app to allow me to watch Star Wars in Machete order too

No, nothing like that. But it *is* masturbation.

You can literally do that right there in the UI for each show.

I got Netflix so I could watch what I wanted, when I wanted, and not the randomized and haphazard bullsh*t of timing with cable. Don't get me wrong, cable tried so you could save shows, but there still were ads.

I don't want to shuffle my sh*t. I do want Netflix to actually save my choices in order, as opposed to the odd order that shows up downstream after the first few shows or movies that I put into my watchlist. Hulu can keep that mess straight. HBOMax does it for me. I want to be able to find my stuff, because sometimes I can't remember titles of something that perked a little interest.

Not with an LG or Vizio TV.

That seems like a disproportionate response to being called gay

It would also be nice to just expunge things that I know I will never watch.

Fair enough, but you can go do it directly via the web or mobile interfaces.  Super easy, barely an inconvenience.

Considering the fact that their price has just gone up again, this feature would be nice.
