Got my first Netflix disks today. Had fun figuring out how to get those freakin' envelopes open, and, when done, put them back in and prepare for mailing back. It makes me wonder what people who are less mechanically minded than me would do when confronted with these envelopes for the first time.
Anyhow, the first movie I watched, Donnie Darko, was... well... dark. So far, so good. The next one is a dramedy (The Big Lebowski). I'll probably watch it on Friday night if I don't go out somewhere. In the meantime Donnie is going back in the mail so my next disk can come, it's a movie that could stand watching again several times (I'm not sure even the director knows what is supposed to be going on), but I don't have that kind of time and I got plenty from it on first viewing.
Oh, my current queue has 17 disks in it and there's three more in the "saved" list waiting either for Netflix to buy it or for it to be released on DVD. So at least for now, it appears I'll have no trouble getting my money's worth out of Netflix :-).
