The way this works is pretty straightforward and actually quite smart. Netflix effectively groups users with similar viewing tastes together in an effort to make its recommendation algorithm more helpful. So if you happen to be a viewer who has absolutely no interest in sports documentaries, you’re not going to be recommended a 30 for 30 episode even if it garners 5 star ratings across the board. – Yoni Heisler, BGR
