I was amused once by searching for Shakes Clown and getting Sales Success (6-Disc Series)
Watch Now took a big dump a couple months ago after I "upgraded" the viewer. It no longer allowed me to use my tv as a monitor. It kicks back some error that it won't work on the analog device.
Lincoln Log announces their new mascot.
I don't see how they would they control the 3-out-at-a-time. Plus it annoys me when Netflix sends me disks out of order from my queue. If I queue up RoboCop 1, 2, then 3... I want them in that order; getting them out of order will force me to hang on them longer waiting until I have them all (or heaven forbid possibly burning them to correct the error in the process.) I could also see myself forwarding a broken disk forward and letting the next person deal with it than myself.

as if DRM has had any real impact on pirating.
I read her blog post as humor not serious. I mean it starts with "A young lady on Myspace", there is no serious tone from that point forward.

I'm going to chime in here and say that I absolutely love the Watch Now feature. If you don't have a/your computer hooked up to a television, this is the reason to get it done.
BS. I dont understand why I have to pick a friend to leave a note. Why cant I just leave my thoughts on the movie and whoever wants to read it can read it.
Basically what I get from the chart is dont watch movies on Thursdays. From my experience the first Monday pickups are the worst. So I dont drop on Sundays. If I drop on Sunday, I typically wont get a replacement until Thursday. If I drop on Monday afternoon then I can have a replacement on Wednesday.

the venue for this changed. it is now being screened at Marine Park.
I would be ok with it. But I keep it pretty simple. 5 for movies/shows that I love 4 for stuff that I like 3 for something that was watchable or semi-entertaining 2 for something I forced myself to sit through 1 for something I turned off
I agree that it's terrible. I was frustrated a couple times this weekend and once already today with trying to decide who I should 'recommend' a film to, just so I could leave a comment about it.
"People feel more secure if they can see the movies and you can explain to them what they're about," That annoys me. I wouldnt mind a conversation about a movie that I returned. but, that is never the case though, they always want to talk about the movie I'm trying to rent.
I've only recently started to pay attention to the return address. 90% of my rentals are local distribution in Houston, TX. The rest are from Austin, TX. I rarely return to Austin, I'll just double up the discs in the Houston envelope. Even though Austin is not that far away to ship back to, if I get on e run of remote locations, I'll have a nice stack of Austin envelopes to hold me over.
