For a second I thought that I was having a dialogue with a human. I was not. I was having a dialogue with a Netflix AI. Just read through this shit and tell me I’m wrong, Dennis.
To Netflix, I wrote:
Ok, I’ve seen discovery star trek season one and two, and I’m watching season three. I love it, but every time I open the flag for discovery, it insist that I start with episodes of season one, and not season three… It drives me cracy… like. Why do your algorithm insist that I need to start from season one, when it must know that I’m watching season three?
Dennis Netflix: Thanks for contacting Netflix. This is Dennis. I’ve read your concern above. No worries, I can help you with that. To get started, can I get the email address on the account?
Netflix DennisWhat’s the name on the account please?
You: again, why havn’t your network already identified me? I write from a subscription and am online on netflix when I wrote?
Netflix DennisCan you please verify the name on the account?
wtf…. you got my mail-adress, isnt that enough? And still, I am logged in…
One moment please, let me research your concern.
You should have that from the get-go, and it’s not a concern; it’s just a head-up that something is not working as good as it could.
Thank you for reporting that to us. Will take that as a feedback.
If may I ask what device are using right now to watch Star Trek Discovery?
Dennis, are you a real person sitting somewhere in the world, actually connecting with a customer?
I am a real person.
Upon checking, there is an option to choose Season 3 immediately.
Ok, does it matter? I don’t have a problem with netflix; it works almost perfectly. I just wondered why your AI insist that I should see season 1 when I’m binging season 3.
I am actually on my Netflix app and I was able to watch Season 3 immediately.
good for you. My question was: why doesn’t Netflix send me straight to season 3, which is what I’m watching every week….
I’ve seen season 1 long ago….
There is no option to send you right away yo season 3, you need to choose it manualy
I know. That’s why I wrote to Customer Service. No accusation, just a complaint that every time I choose Discovery, Netflix tells me to watch season one, when I’m binging season 3 and watched season 1 long ago.
Let me go ahead and consult one of our experts.
May I ask what device that has been affected?
just checking in – are you still with me?
This chat will be closed by the system in approximately two minutes. I want to make sure we get your questions taken care of so please let me know if you are still there.
