Steppin' Into That Sweet Ass World

So I finally did it. I finally broke down and got a Netflix membership. Yesterday was the final straw. See, I was stoked because HBO finally had season 1 of the wire on-demand. usually, it'd be season 3 or something, and I didn't want to start from there. So I'm getting into it, I watch the 1st 6 episodes, and THAT WAS ALL! The last 7 aren't avail on-demand yet, I'm like WTF? I'm all hooked now and can't get my fix. After this sad situation unfolded, I decided I'd go to Chilli's for carry-out Fajitas, and to the local video store. Figured I'd get the rest of season 1, and just start renting them. I went to 4 video stores, 4! All 4 had discs 4 & 5 but not disc 3. Now my fajitas are cold, I'm like WTF? Beaten and sad, I return home and immediately sign up for Netflix. I get the WHOLE SERIES of the Wire in my que, Along with the series so far of Weeds, and Dexter. Ill be getting Six Feet Under too eventually. not only am i going to be able to catch up on ALL the series i never have been able to watch, but I'll also be able to watch over 12,000 movies instantly on my Mac. Netflix just came out with a viewer for Mac, so tonight when I get home I'm watching 21! I'm finally into that sweet as world. I can't wait to get my DVDs so I can start getting caught up!

I just cancelled my Netflix. Redbox is cheaper but them again it doesn't have the TV shows you want to see.

netflix is the greatest this this side of bartender's bash.
even better?
we have 4 macs in this house, and john's mac-mini is hooked up to that huge tv in the family room...instant access to 12,000 movies, on the couch, in front of the fire!

it's amazing that we ever leave the house, really.

I have been a NetFlix customer for about a year I guess now. I also do the $15/ month plan (2 movies out at a time). I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I have never been disapointed. Also, how great is 6 Feet Under?? Love it! Enjoy your NF life!

My mom and I do the 3 movie plan for 18 bucks.
It's pretty awesome. The only downside is that you put one on your list, and then when you get it a while later you realize you aren't in the mood for it.

I loved netflix until I kept not returning the movie I had and ended up paying for it for 3 months straight. Stupid on my part but still frustrating.

Bobby G said...

KAT! Show some control girl! lol

Sarah, Havent even started 6 feet under, got 3 other series to watch first!

Lee, I can see where thatd be a problem, but im only doing TV right now
