Is there any way to stop it from reverting back to the main menu whenever you put something on pause?

For instance: you put a Netflix TV show on pause and walk away. 5 minutes later it's returned back to the main menu. Now you have to click back to Netflix, click through to 'recently watched', click on the season you were watching, scroll through the menu to figure out which show you were watching, press 'play' then click on 'Resume Playing'... a 6 step process that gets majorly annoying after you've had to do it several dozen times during the day.
