|12:56 pm - Amazon.com and fannish links in taste|
All right. I finally got in touch with Amazon, got them to fix my account, and preordered Numb3rs: the Complete 1st Season.
I was amused to note the items that were listed as recommendations--and to note that, by and large, I understood why.
Customers who viewed this also viewed:
Medium: the Complete First Season: This is a crime drama with a strong, well-crafted set of familial relationships. I'm not surprised that there's a lot of crossover between fans of both these shows; I'd be watching it myself, if the supernatural stuff didn't creep me out.
Joey: the Complete First Season: I honestly can't explain this one at all.
The Sentinel: the Complete First Season: This is the other DVD set I am impatiently waiting for. Heh. My friend V. and I say that Numb3rs (first season at least) is in some ways The Sentinel as the ficcers write it, so this also makes loads of sense.
Customers who bought this also bought (in other catagories):
The LOST Chronicles: the official companion book: Interesting. People who like solving puzzles within the confines of fiction/characters. Another show I watch regularly.
Finding Serenity : Anti-Heroes, Lost Shepherds and Space Hookers in Joss Whedon's Firefly (Smart Pop series): Heh. I have not yet bought this, but it looks to contain some insightful essays about one of my favorite TV shows of all time.
The Complete Calvin and Hobbes, by Bill Watterson: Oh man, I want this soooo badly. Not sure I see any potential connection here, but I've wanted this since it came out. Gorgeous, finely-bound, two-volume boxed set.
It's just...interesting. :-)
Current Mood: interested
Sometimes I like to go look at what Amazon is recommending based on my past purchases and current wish list. I am often left wondering what crack their algorithms are smoking, but it's a fun little exercise to guess why they thought I would want that...
*cracks up laughing*
There's just something funny about the mental image of strings of equations curled up into little people-forms (like the Catepillar in Alice in Wonderland)doing crack.
*giggles some more*
I always enjoy looking at the "people also liked..." stuff. It's particularly good when you, say, order a mediocre film because it has a sci-fi actor you like... you'll find that the list is something like: #season
of sci-fi show actor is in; #bad
film he made ten years ago#pilot
he made for show that never got picked up#film
in which he has ten-second cameo#bad
film made by other actor in said sci-fi show
or something like that :) And it's so very clear why people bought it...
*snerk* Yes, I do indeed know what you mean. We fans are a little strange that way, sometimes.

Ohhh, the Complete C&H. It's a wonderful thing.
Now I should go check my Amazon reccs.
