Netflix favorites by location

Posted to Maps  |  Tags: ,  |  Nathan Yau

If you have Netflix, you know that there’s a section for local favorites, and it can change quite a bit depending on where you live. After moving a few times in the past couple of years, I’ve definitely seen local favorites that seem to reflect the culture or majority demographic in a city. Slacktory used this simple idea and looked up favorites in each state. The map above is the result.

There are quite a few amusing stereotypes in there, although I’m not sure what’s going on with a few of them. Beverly Hills Chi Hua Hua in Mississippi… Kindergarten Cop… A Little Princess?

What’s a Netflix favorite in your area?

  • Roots in southern Indiana, really? Southern Indiana was the where the rebirth of the KKK, post WW I, took place.

  • I’ve got to wonder how popular Montana Sky really is. I suspect it’s really the United States of Harry Potter.

  • “My Own Private Idaho” – a Shakespearean adaptation of a gay street hustler based mostly in Seattle, a favorite in Maine?!?!?!

    I am from LA and saw LA Story in Virginia during its release. I was cackling through the whole movie and the rest of the theater was quiet. I was aware the silence, but was so overcome by the humor magnified by homesickness. It also captures LA so very well, even if it is a caricature.
