I like Sci fi. But I swear the list under sci fi was longer when I first joined the site. Now. When I filter I get the same 12 shows... Everytime. Obviously the site has a much bigger amount of shows.

And I've had some in my queue I watched that were filtered in there but are no longer.

Why is the Genre filter giving me such a terribly short list?

Where are you located? I'm in the U.S. and it's giving me 39 shows for science fiction.

What are some of the shows that are/were in your queue that you don't see on the science fiction filter that you think should be?

I just tried this, and while there are many shows there, some that should be obviously aren't, like Majestic Prince, Aldnoahzero (only one of these has the sci-fi tag on its own page), and many more.

I tried again after going through a few combinations, and 1 time it said there were currently none available for science fiction. The next time I tried they were back. There may be a bug, a sorting problem of science fiction vs sci-fi, etc.

Yeah, the genre classification is separate from the tagging, and I'm not sure how CR does the labeling for either.

Since support staff don't visit the forums all that often any more, I think the best way to get get a more definitive answer is to use the Contact Us form.

You could try my group page for the extended tag of Sci_Fi (two pages) as an alternative. It is a US-centric list though, so if you are in a different country you might find several (to many) shows unavailable depending where you are...

Also, I need to update that for the recent seasons soon, so the newest shows may not be listed yet.

Thanks for the Replies guys.

I used to have Terraformars in the Sci Fi Genre, and I think maybe another couple of shows listed there no longer filtered as sci fi., I can watch them. Since I have. It just seems that the Genre filter is a bit.. Picky and odd.
