So I read your criticism and I decided to set the bot into hibernation for 1-2 week in order to rewrite parts of the code.
Currently I'm handling followed and watched series the same way, I'm going to remove watched series from that and only keep the watched info in order to not recommend stuff you already know.
The coding doesn't take long, but I have to grab all of the data again because I didn't properly seperate these infos before.
I hope that I'll get better recommendations afterwards, thank you all for your feedback :)

I don't know where you get your information but it seems rather random and incorrect.

I'm only following 2 of the shows you use for recommendations and I'm NOT following (I double checked to be sure) How I Met Your Mother, Breaking Bad, Boardwalk Empire, The Big Bang Theory.
And for a good reason, so you can imagine the recommendations are not something I want to watch.

Maybe you can focus on the shows I love? Too bad followmy.tv hasn't got a hate button or you could exclude those from the recommendations.

@spacejam That's fine, I was just making the point that the recommendor recommends me shows based on all 3 about 75% of the time. You may not watch them but you can't be ignorant of the fact that they are some of the most watched, mainstream shows.

Plus they aren't even similar other than a large audience so
idk why it would recommend anything based on those 3 shows (at once, not just one here and there, but all 3 for like 10 recommmendations) but any of the same 3 shows over and over is stupid, and constantly; just annoying so I blocked it

@likwidsolutions literally three shows I wouldn't watch if you paid me to. I'm sure there are loads of people who haven't watched those shows, for all kinds of reasons.

I suggest you stop giving suggestions based on Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, and Breaking Bad...literally the 3 shows that almost everyone has seen, including non-TV aficionados.

I would like to watch something that is similar to Modern Family, Mom, 2 Broke Girls. Any suggestions?

So, the Recommender, I tried your suggestions on Parks and Recreation, but it's not my type. Actually, I'm not really into comedy. And True Detective it's ok, but again it's not really my type. And Arrow I didnt even tried because I hate super hero kinda like.

But well, let's give another try. So, if I tell you, that from my watch list, my favorites are Banshee, The Affair, Masters of Sex, The Walking Dead, House of Cards and Mad Men. What would you suggest me?

Thanks <3

@iphi I believe I owe you another thanks! I, Claudies seemed fairly interesting and with a good number of familiar actors, so I'll definitely watch that as well.

@Dukz Yeah, that is a shame. I don't mind being advised I watch 'popular' shows, but if they are in their +4th season already, and I have not watched a single episode (or only a few), you can then assume I want to keep it that way.

I had to think of another one you might appreciate, old again (1970s), but about Rome. The "I, Claudius" series from the BBC. Google it! ;)

Dukz
Dukz (Feb 06, 2015)

@iphi Yeah, it ended up being that despite my initial misguided believe otherwise. It's a bit of a shame, because the recs I get are thus only very popular shows that I am very aware of but have chosen not to watch. Oh well...

Oh, and thank you very much for that recommendation! I looked up The Pillars of the Earth and it does look like something I would enjoy. Much appreciated.

Hi there Recommender,

I am ManuelvdV. You should tell me I should watch Game of Thrones, everyone tells me that. Still haven't seen it though. I only listen to THE Recommender..

@Dukz It probably does not just take the shows you watch into account (content-based filtering, or if there is similarity in the shows you watch), but also what people with similar viewing behaviour to you watch as well (collaborative filtering, similarity in people viewing behaviour).

Followmy.tv's userbase is smaller, I'm assuming, than Amazon's so collaborative filtering won't get them that far. If most avid Rome fans are also avid House fans, that might skew the results, and suggest this to you, even though the series are a few thousand years apart.

However, if you liked Rome, I'd very much suggest The Pillars of the Earth series. It is kinda old, but really well done, and imho beats the book. (And I rarely ever say that.)
