Have you ever noticed that when you’re watching a show or a movie, there are often other films or shows sort of written into them?

It could be “The Rural Juror” in "30 Rock," or a stream of bad-looking sequels to great films like "Good Will Hunting" or "Forrest Gump".

Recollecting all these shows is a movie trivia rabbit hole.

That’s exactly what local web developer Lynn Fisher realized recently and why she created her new site — Nestflix.

It’s a Netflix-looking database of fake, “nested” shows and movies like these. And it seems she’s really struck a nerve.

Fisher’s passion project has now been written up in Vanity Fair and Mashable. The Show spoke with her to learn more about Nestflix and how she came up with the idea to begin with.
