    I have noticed a few on previous lists are not available for streaming from Netflix on my Roku device or Samsung tablet too.
    Do you curate the lists only from your desktop browser?
    I wonder what is the official process by Netflix for determining availability to the multiple platforms?

    Hey, Netflix tells me that "A Hijacking" is not available to stream! (But thanks for the list anyway -- always helpful!)

    Replaced it with "Brother Outsider: The Life of Bayard Rustin" -- an inspired choice! Thanks again!

    Hmm... strange. It was there when I made the list. May be a temporary glitch. But I replaced it with a documentary. I'll check in with Netflix.
