netflix [Jul. 2nd, 2009|02:12 pm]

we finally signed up for netflix. i'm enjoying it so far. especially the streamable stuff, because a friend reminded me that i can watch the Instant View movies on our t.v. via the xbox360.

i started watching the first season of Dead Like Me; and even though i know it was cancelled after the second season, i still fell in love with it instantly. i made it all the way through episode twelve of the first season only to realize that the last two episodes are on disc four which is mail-out only. so, it's next in my queue. i prescreened season two for the same situation. i'm glad i did, because disc one, two, and four are all mail-out only, as well. whatever. i like the show, i'll wait.

so, in the mean time... i decided to start season one of Dexter. got through two episodes last night before darek got home from work. he decided to sit down and watch it with me. he liked it! we watched three episodes together before going to bed. i asked him today if he wanted me to watch it without him. he said he didn't care, but i can tell that he is actually interested in it. i will wait for him and we can watch that together, i guess.

we got our first mail-out wednesday afternoon, but got around to watching it today. The Boy In The Striped Pajamas should come with a warning label, for real. That is *THE* saddest movie I have seen in maybe ever. and, of course, my husband had to laugh at me for crying which really makes me feel bad, like there's something wrong with me for crying.

so yes, that has been my netflix experience thus far. but now i have to find some new stuff to watch while i wait for DLM to come in the mail and in between watching Dexter with darek.

I wonder why they let the streaming stuff work on a 360 but not a PS3. Must be some monopoly deal with Microstiff.

yeah, i've heard pretty awesome things about True Blood. and i've seen a few episodes of N/T on tv. neither of them are in the instant watch option right now, so, i'll just have to wait until darek is on evenings again for renting them. i'm just not that into the other ones.

and big love and weeds are very much worth watching! Just give it a shot and I'm sure you'll like it. I didn't think I would watch big love but, I'm addicted!

my video card fried about a month ago and i'm stuck using the crappy onboard, so, no watching anything on the computer until we get another; which is really going to kill my raging porn addiction (kidding), Big Love sounds interesting, but Weeds (season 1 & 2) are on instant watch. i'll give it a shot. i fear that we may have to get Showtime in the near future. lol!

Ahh well with the awesome-ness of the interwebs you can watch all the episodes of weeds on watchweeds.com and if you invest in a wireless card for your xbox or a really long ethernet and you can watch any movies you DL on your computer on your xbox just like the way you would listen to music.
