Mike Recommends

Amazon Alexa Skill for recommending movies, books, TV shows, games and even bands based on one that you love.

Watching a good TV show or movie is great but once it ends your left looking for something else to replace it, when searching for some new shows to watch online I came across the TasteKid website which recommends shows based on what the community has also liked. I thought it would be cool to implement TasteKid's API in a skill for Alexa.

Mike Recommends allows you to ask for a suggestion based on something you have loved, it can be a TV show, movie, book, game or even a band.
