Because you watched Bulletproof Monk >
Because you watched Push >

This is despite the fact that I have only ever selected one non-English program by mistake, I stopped watching as soon as I realised that it did not have English audio. I think it would be a good idea if we could have more options and control over how suggestions are selected.
