Emflix – Part 15 – Subgenres – Children and Family

Link to Part 14 – Subgenres – Anime and Animation

Here’s “Children and Family”

Compare again Netflix’s listing of genres to mine.

 

Here are my subgenres for said category with asterisks for ones I’ll be discussing below

  • Animal Tales
  • Book Characters
  • Disney*
  • Family Adventures
  • Family Animation
  • Family Classics
  • Family Comedies
  • Family Dramas
  • Family Sci-Fi and Fantasy
  • Teen Comedies
  • Teen Dramas

 

  • Disney
    • I waffled on this one. I didn’t like the idea of recording something which is so clearly descriptive metadata and not subject metadata. This is a production company! But I ended up conceding because of how much people consider ‘Disney’ its own thing.

 

Not present on my list, but present on Netflix’s

  • Ages 0-2
  • Ages 2-4
  • Ages 5-7
  • Ages 8-10
  • Ages 11-12
  • Cartoons
  • Coming of Age
  • Dinosaurs
  • Education & Guidance
  • Kids’ Music
  • Kids’ TV
  • Nickelodeon
  • Teen Romance

 

  • Age groupings
    • Frankly our collection isn’t exactly intended for children so I didn’t feel a need to differentiate between the age groupings at that micro-level.
  • Cartoons
    • I was unable to satisfactorily separate this category from “Family Animation” and so decided to eliminate it entirely as they almost entirely overlapped.
  • Coming of Age
  • Dinosaurs
    • Never came up in our collection
  • Education and Guidance
    • Never came up in our collection
  • Kids’ Music
    • Never came up in our collection
  • Kids’ TV
    • As I said in the last post re: Anime Series — I was attempting to treat movies and TV shows separately with greater consistency than Netflix was
  • Nickelodeon
    • Never came up in our collection — but I may’ve dismissed it even if it had, I made an exception for Disney above, but probably wouldn’t’ve for Nickelodeon…sorry Nickelodeon.
  • Teen Romance
    • Rule of 5 eliminated it
