Netflix on iPad: remove from "Continue Watching" list?

Is that list editable? This is the list at the very top in my iPad display showing the recent movies I've watched on iPad. How can I remove a movie from there? I have a movie listed there that I don't want my little nieces to see. Thanks in advance.

Go through to the movie and scroll the timer bar all the way to the end, and let it go down to 0:00. Then you will have finished watching and you won't be asked to continue.

NetFlix sometimes leaves things in my Continue Watching list even when I let the credits roll all the way through to the end. It doesn't seem predictable.

If it doesn't work, you can start watching a whole bunch of other things and push it down off the list.

Netflix does leave old shows listed there, even if the shows are completed. I was able to load other shows that replaced the one I didn't want listed, so it's gone. Thanks.
