This week in 'Secrets Netflix Doesn't Want you to Know', because it's kind of a bi**h — there exists something called a Netflix request page,  which is exactly what it sounds like. You can just type in the names of shows and movies you want to watch, and hope Netflix listens to you.


Yes, it's kind of a far stretch and Netflix might just ignore your request. But you will at least have some closure. And you will know you did your best to bring Doctor Who to binge-watching territory.

Here's what happened: A Netflix user tweeted about how Netflix Philippines does not have comedian Chelsea Peretti's stand-up special, One of the Greats

And Netflix responded to his tweet by providing a link to something which is basically a better version of our shopping Amazon wishlist — a request page!

Netflix provided the link to its request page, and said, "You know the drill." 

No, Netflix, we don't.

Even Chelsea Peretti responded to the thread agreeing with us. "LITERALLY NO ONE KNOWS THAT DRILL," she tweeted.

Anyway, speaking of the request page — it looks like a fairly run-of-the-mill request form. You can mention titles of the outings you want to watch and submit them. You can access it from Netflix's Help Center.

The guidelines explain that some of the requests can’t be granted due to licensing issues, but all requests are duly taken note of. They just duly forgot to tell us about it.

So, check it out while we make a list of the things we want to plead for. Also, hey Netflix, still mad at you, bruh.
