Your Netflix queue, both DVD and instant

    Watching a lot of movies these days. My Netflix queue hovers around 100.

    How about yours? I wondered if that was above or below the norm.

    Tell me I'm not the only one who adds movies/TV shows that aren't out yet. I've got the latest season of "Mad Men" in there along with "The King's Speech."

    I'm really disappointed in the selection for the "on demand" movies. I don't know how much more a month it is to get the subscription to a BluRay or Wii, but so far, I just haven't been able to find any good ones to add to the instant queue. Is that even worth it?

    Oh, and "Babel" still sucks. Thought it might be better since I've lived in Morocco, but no. It's a horrible movie that's about 45 minutes too long.

    My DVD queue is empty, mainly because I don't put movies in queue until they're actually released and because there's not much out right now I want to watch.

    The instant streaming selection is shit right now. And the new arrivals haven't been updated in what seems like months. I read, though, that Netflix is beefing up instant streaming and cutting back on DVDs.

    I usually have about 30 in the queu. Even at that length, it's too long. I'm always reshuffling the order based on what we feel like watching on a given week.

    I got AppleTV recently.

    It's great, but I can't find much on Netflix I want to watch. I see so few movies, that I figured there would be a ton to watch.

    Please recommend anything good I can stream instantly.

    I have been watching 30 Rock, which I had never seen, and think it's brilliant.

    I recently cut back to the streaming only for $7.99 a month and I'm using it mostly for TV shows. Currently watching Rescue Me.

    I love that show, and it's a great one to watch this way because nearly every episode ends with a cliffhanger of some sort.

    You just want to sit at home and set up your own marathon.

    I'll probably check out Parks & Rec next. I've never watched it either.

    I have both DVD and Instant selections. I still have the DVD option, mainly because the instant selection isn't great yet.


    I have mostly TV shows or some classic movies on the instant que.

    For those King of the Hill fans, Netflix has the remaining seasons 7-12 available on instant. They have only released the first six seasons on DVD.

    Cannibal Holocaust is not available on instant, just FYI.

    The Mrs. and I get to watch maybe one movie a week - usually one every two weeks - and for some reason I've stashed over 100 titles in my queue. I'm a queue addict.

    And since we don't get to go to the movies very often, I'm always stashing recently released flicks in the save file.

    A lot of goofy documentaries lately. The other night we watched one on the primitive ancestor of hip hop.
