I was going to post this on Screened, but I figured I'd get a quicker response from here.
 
For whatever reason, my Recently Watched list on Netflix shows I watched a whole bunch of TV shows, primarily The Office. The problem is... I didn't. And no one else I know could have, either. I don't even have The Office on my Queue. It also showed I activated two PCs for streaming last week, one of which had no recent watches and the other had all of the stuff that I didn't watch. I de-activated them and changed my password, and now I'm scanning my computer for any kind of virus, although I think if someone was going to hack my computer for passwords they would do something a little more productive than watch The Office from Netflix. The weird thing is, though, that this apparently started on the 8th, but I just now saw it all in the list. Is this just a glitch, or was I hacked?

Sorry, but I really wanted to watch The Office man.

It would be extremely odd for someone to have found out your password, watch a few episodes of The Office and not change it, I dunno man, this was the nicest hacker in the world if you really were hacked. Try emailing Netflix support, they can probably check what IP addresses connected to your account and where they're located.

Its possible its some sort of glitch, a while back here on GB people were getting problems with having achievements in games they never played on their profile. This might be something similar. Although the two PC's streaming thing might slightly disprove that theory.

@OneManFreakShow: Change your password.

I have had random stuff on my netflix before, last year it showed i had some cartoon, i believe dora the explorer, in my instant queue. I did the same thing, change my password and delete everything, but in the end I think it was just a glitch, because why would someone take over access to my netflix to watch dora the explorer, and not change my password?? It doesnt make any sense.

Just admit that you watched Dora The Explorer. No one will make fun of you.

@OneManFreakShow: I had something similar where it showed a season of the Golden Girls under my "Saved DVD" queue. I have no idea how it got there, nor do I know what the Saved DVD queue even is.

@Mordukai:  Alright, I admit it! Her adventures take me to a place I never thought id be able to go before, and she speaks spanish, which adds a whole layer of mystery to her.

@SSully: LMAO...I have a five year old daughter. I know Dora back and forth. Frankly I think she and her family are trafficking drugs across the border.

That's really strange, since I would assume any hacker could just as easily pirate the episodes.

@OneManFreakShow: Nah this happens to me all the time, it randomly adds movies to my queue that I would never dreamed of watching. Hell, the first time I booted it up it queued up some show called conviction.

That was because Microsoft changed their API.

The weird thing is, though, none of what they watched (save for 17 seconds of the IT Crowd) was on my Queue. It just says they were watched.
 
I'm guessing it's a glitch, because I didn't see it a couple days ago even though it's been happening for a week now apparently. But still, weird.
