I've Failed.

I've always thought of someone who kept with the trends pretty well. I mean, I try to keep up with what's in fashion and what's not (note to self: get rid of the Skecher sandals I bought 5 years ago). I keep up with the latest gidgets and gadgets. I keep up with what's popular on television, although I may not really watch it, I try to at least know what's going on.

But, alas, I have failed.

Netflix has been out for a few years now. I used to think it was kind of crazy to pay 10 dollars a month only to have movies sent to your mailbox. Why not just run down to one of those movie machines that you only have to pay a dollar for? Oh, but I was so nieve. There is so much more to Netflix than DVDs in your mailbox! For 10 dollars a month, I can get movies sent to my mailbox AND movies streamed instantly through my Nintendo Wii! People, let me tell you...I have been watching movies for an entire month it seems like. I've been watching Goldie Hawn movies, Steve Martin movies, movies I wanted to see in theaters but never got to...and best of all...the one other thing that I didn't keep with in the trends...

I've discovered Lost

Yes, I know...six seasons later and I'm just now watching the first season. It's amazing! I'm like, why didn't I watch this when it was coming on?!

So...I'm catching up on the latest trends. Hopefully by the time I get through all 5 seasons of Lost the sixth will be on Netflix. If you don't have Netflix, you should definitely look into it. It's amazing!

You are funny... at first, I was thinking that this was going to be some uber-depressing post about what a terrible person you are and how you have failed at something... and I guess you did fail at something - with that something being Netflix.

Netflix is pretty cool - although we have had the same 2 movies for about a month now (we just never seem to get around to watching them... now that is a fail).

MY BFF dumped her cable completely, they hooked a computer up to the television and between Netflix & Hulu, they're set! They love it. I've not been able to cut that cord just yet, but it could happen. (And I didn't get into the Lost thing either.)

Best show ever. Just do your best to not read spoilers...etc

Lost is AMAZING! It's definitely worth it to avoid learning spoilers ahead of time also!

We love our netflix, mostly for TV series. After my c-section when I was stuck upstairs, we watched the entire first two seasons of Friday Night Lights, and most recently, started 24 from the beginning!

Love Netflix. It's the greatest thing ever!

Lost? Yeah, I purposely avoided it. I can't have too many shows and at the time I was all hooked on Greys.

Salt said...

It's ok. I have no idea if I like Lost or not. I only saw the pilot episode and none other after that.

I am always WAY behind when it comes to television shows. I still haven't even seen Glee.

We use Blockbuster online...pretty much the same thing. It's awesome! I'm catching up on Desperate Housewives and Nip/Tuck now :D

I used to do netflix like all those years ago. BUT not now. And I can get a netflix app for my ipad and stream there. SO need to do that.

We're coming up on our 1 yr anniversary with Netflix. I feel like I should make a cake or something. I go through phases when I would rent several movies at a time and then it was too much effort so I wouldn't go for several months. And as I walked through the store I would try to remember to come back for such and so or lament that I have never seen that. My memory is crap so I never rented half of what I wanted to see. Now I see a commercial on TV and I pull it up on Netflix and reserve it. Granted I won't see it for another three months but I am sooooo very okay with that. I have now seen so many movies that were on my wishlist. Totally bowing down to kiss the toes of Netflix.

Netflix is pretty much my new best friend!!! I just added Lost last night. I've never seen a single episode so it should be interesting, lol. I made my hubs watch all three season of Roswell with me before this.

I've heard Netflix is awesome. I'll have to look into it. I've never seen Lost or Glee or 24 etc. I need to get with it. :)

I used to have Netflix back in the day, but got rid of it when I moved. Maybe I should get with the program, and go back to it since I had no idea they stream to the wii! that's pretty nifty!

Oh and I never watched Lost. Not even one episode, haha
