    TED is taking over, the science channel will be running some now, and NPR has a show running as well.

    NETFLIX was great. Now that they have no new movie content, and that they have angered customers by raising prices, what is the use. Do I still use netflix? Yes, but I am very disappointed with the way that they run the service. I believe that it is time that they get some new management with new positive ideas running the show.:deal

    I'll give you that the price hike was boneheaded...

    But the content issue is not Netflix's fault, but instead the fault of the studios refusing to get with the times and allow streaming of their content.

    A big hit came when Starz dropped their content, but I have to say Lilyhammer kicked ass so I have a lot of hope for their original programming.

    And Netflix is great in that it has so many of my DVD's I barely have to use them, that plus all the TV shows I go through make it easily worth it.

    Not a movie, but watching Burn Notice for the first time now. Much better than expected -- I'm about 5 episodes into season two. Quite a hilarious show at times and Bruce Campbell is awesome as usual. :lol3

    I tried watching Valhalla Rising last night.

    I found the pacing to be very similar to Drive, and the cinematography to be excellent, but I just couldn't get into it. I ended up shutting it off a little over half way through.

    Watched this early Robert Rodriguez movie the other day. It really surprised me how good it was.

    Just watched "The Hunter" last night. Mercenary sent to obtain genetic material from the last living "Tasmanian Tiger" in existence...

    Interesting movie. Slower paced than I thought it would be but I found it quite gripping.

    Dear Zachary. It's a documentary. Extraordinarily touching. I am sobbing.

    Haven't had cable or satellite since I moved out of my parents house a few years ago. Netflix keeps me more than entertained. Make sure you rate stuff so it learns what you like. I tend to like documentaries and there are plenty on Netflix, so that probably gives me
    An advantage.
