Map of the Day: Netflix Rentals by Zip Code
Inspired by our friends at Gothamist, we took a look at the Los Angeles maps posted by the NY Times showing trends and popularity of titles in Netflix rentals.
It seems in many LA zip codes people are into living life in reverse (Benjamin Button), teenage vampires (Twilight), bromance (I Love You, Man) and Angelina Jolie wailing "I want my son!" in 1930s Los Angeles (Changeling), while distinct patterns of who-rents-what emerges when you look at particular titles, such as the hit drama Mad Men.
