Netflix content descriptions are infinitely improved by software glitches

Regular Netflix is great, but we prefer its messed-up cousin that occasionally rears its head when the app crashes.

When there's so much content on the service competing to feature in your six-hour binge, it's important that the sells are on the money. That's why every movie or show provides a brief plot synopsis in the hope it'll grab your attention.

As incredible as Netflix is, with its near-endless library of entertainment and seamless interface, it's still vulnerable to a technological f*ckup or two every now and again. Nothing's perfect, right?

It turns out that the app quite often gets mixed up and displays the wrong description for what you're trying to watch. A Twitter account called @SummaryBug archives all of these for your amusement.

Here are some of the funniest.
