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?!?!?!
