The lights are on
Max, from the creators of You Don't Know Jack, is a free addition to the PlayStation 3 version of Netflix that will help you select something to watch when you can't decide yourself.
Max will do things like help you make decisions among disparate genres and actors, or offer you a randomized pick based on your preferences with Max's Mystery Call. The latter is basically the equivalent of the "I'm Feeling Lucky" button below Google's search bar. Max will offer offer you quick pitches on assorted movies and TV shows if you want more information.
You can check out Max's features in the video below, or just log on to Netflix on your PlayStation 3.

Thanks but no thanks. I already know what I wanna watch on Netflix. Thanks for the offer though.
This sounds really....creeeeeeepy...
this is some kind of skit right? Some kind of weird unfunny skit?
Hilarious. Still wondering if this is a joke or not.... if it s not then DAMN technology you creepy.
Man.. as soon as I'm done with 30 Rock, I have 7 shows lined up afterwords
This sounds like a cool feature, but I doubt I'll use it. I prefer the movie recommendation feature Netflix itself offers.
Was no one else in the beta for this? I'd get the "Max" option at random times. It's pretty nifty, but never really led me to anything I was interested in.
Still think it's a cool feature, though.
I don't use Netflix any way, but this sounds cool.
Hmm...interesting feature, but one I will most likely bypass in favor of simply debating what movies to view.
It might be interesting if it weren't so annoying.
