My fellow Americans, here’s what you watched.
After nearly 5 billion red envelopes shipped, we’ve learned a lot about what you–our members–like to watch. We’ve scoured the data. State by state. Genre by genre. And what have we learned?
This nation of ours loves us some Drama. Year after year, we’ve seen the Drama genre maintain its place atop the podium with close to a billion shipments! Every now and then, another genre like Comedy will pull an upset, but it doesn’t last long.
Since the beginning, Drama has been the most popular genre. There were five standout years when Drama was dethroned. Here are the films that helped make their genre the #1 rented genre by DVD Netflix members for that year.
- 1998 - ACTION & ADVENTURE:
- 1999 - COMEDY:
- 2004 - COMEDY:
- 2005 - COMEDY:

From the looks of it, we all needed a good laugh in the mid-2000s. Or, we were super carefree, chuckling the days away. You be the judge.
United States of Drama.
