To be perfectly honest, I'm horrid at returning my movies. I do feel guilty, particularly if they're new releases. But while I love having movies delivered to me and the small trip to the mail box to get and return them, I'm far more enamored with Netflix's streaming.
Thanks to my 6 year old (or was it the germ filled roller skating rink?), I caught a cold of some sort last weekend, which made me entirely too lazy. Despite incessant begging for the PS3, I instead asserted my parental rights and claimed the TV as my own. Yes, I forced my kids to watch Seasons 1-4 of Doc Martin. Even my 9 year old loved the show (eventually) and what's not to love. Doc Martin is like House with a touch of Asperger's (which, by the way, is quite funny and my kind of humor.) I also got to watch the third movie in the Millenium Trilogy -- The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest. I had to put my laptop away for that one... it was Swedish with English subtitles!
The future of Netflix will eventually be all streaming, or nearly so. I can't imagine they like paying the post office to ship those movies back and forth. I look forward to more shows coming available and perhaps a bit more diversity. There are lots of good shows on TV in other countries. When I lived near Erie, PA, I loved that I could occasionally tune in some Canadian shows. The world is becoming smaller by the minute and I hope that Netflix will continue to add foreign material to their offerings.
