    Yes, very helpful. Peter's request for a list for the UK market reminded me that recently I read an article explaining how to access other Netflix "markets" from your home market [i.e. access "Netflix UK" from USA] Was that on MakeUseOf? If not, could you do an article on that? There are some great UK shows we can't get here in USA.

      I believe we've done a few articles along those lines, but it walks a thin line legally speaking. Thanks for the suggestion, David. We'll act on it as best as we can. :)

    Who does the descriptions? "Some Assembly Required" is definitely NOT a documentary series. It is an attempt at a wacky kid's series (with poor/over acting), like their "Richie Rich". It is all kinds of awfulness.

      Apparently there are multiple shows named "Some Assembly Required". Didn't realize. I've updated the article. Thanks for the tip, Ben!

    Nice list, Is there any chance you can do one for the UK market?

    It can be difficult to find a reliable listing of what's on and what's about to disappear!

      Thanks for the suggestion, Peter. We'll see if that's something we can do! :)
