DVDs That Come to Me

We have finally signed up for Netflix and I already like it.

In case you don't know what Netflix is about, you go to a website and set up a queue of movies. They send you the top movies from your queue that are available along with a postage-paid envelope for returning them. You send each movie back whenever you want, then they send you the next available one from the top of your queue.

No late fees. No 11:48 runs to the video store drop box. There will always be a movie in the house that we want to watch. We'll watch way more movies this way and won't have a problem with picking the occasional flick that one of us loves but the other hates (we have the two videos at a time plan.)

The queue could become a challenge, but the idea is to not have two flicks in a row that the same person doesn't want to watch. For instance, Transformers and 300 should not be back to back. Steel Magnolias and The Piano should not be back to back. Alternating is ok. Our tastes are pretty compatible, but every once in a while, She will want to watch some chick flick (e.g., Steel Magnolias) and every once in a while, I will want to watch a guy flick (e.g., Full Metal Jacket or Transformers) or a more artsy (e.g., No Country for Old Men) or quirky (e.g., Napoleon Dynamite) flick.

Anyway, I am looking forward to watching more movies. Netflix should be fun.
