    We at the casa de flipper have been quite enjoying Netflix instant-view of late. I've been geeking out on documentaries and war movies on the nights Ms Kim is working in the ER. She is digging the British stuff like Downton Abby

    My two faves last week were:
    http://www.9thcompany.com/
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1023114/

    And we are catching up on TV series that we never had access to, Weeds, Jherico, Battlestar G, SOA ect

    Yea, the selection is not huge but well worth $9.99/month!

    In general, I love Netflix streaming, but I'm a little bummed that they nuked a national favorite.

    Was just getting ready to watch me some Matt and Festus last week and much to my chagrin, they removed GunSmoke (hoping on all hope that someone double checks my math here, and I'm wrong.)

    I'm real happy with Netflix. Had it for years. I even give it out for Xmas for 3 months.

    Having a Vizio Smart TV, an LG sorround sound with bue ray and apps and a recently bought Sony Smart Blue Ray
    Player ( the DVD portion of the LG gave up). Aside from my laptop, I noticed that the selection changes from device to device. Also the speed at which Netflix loads (so far, the sony player, is the fastest). On my laptop I can see way more selections than in any other device. Second, will be the sony. So if you cannot find the specific movie or show on you device, look for it on a laptop, and add it to your queue.

    The Way Back was a decent flick. Not factual, but a good fictionalization of a real event. To even come close to capturing what you'd go through on that walk, the movie would need to be about 5 hours. They had to gloss over a lot, obviously. Think about walking for YEARS. Wow.

    I have the Netflix app on the iPhone, and it is great !

    When it streams through my PS3, my only gripe is it is not HD.

    Been watching a lot of streaming from my PS3. Catching up on some series I've never seen before. The movie selections are getting better also.

    I've always watched my Gunsmokes on Netflix dvd, never knew they were ever available on instant. Also for cable folks, The Western Channel has two episodes of Marshall Dillon (the original half hour Gunsmokes from the first six seasons) plus one episode of the hour long Gunsmoke every evening.

    Started watching Jericho last week, and am up to episode 22... Way too much time wasted...

    I do find Netflix great for finally getting to watch shows that looked interesting but I simply was unable to adjust my schedule to fit a weekly series...

    I actually cancelled my account recently. The few tv shows that they had, that I liked, were pulled from instant view.

    I mostly used netflix for movies and when I first signed up, the selection was good. I found myself relying more and more on Zune Media so I just did away with the $10 a month fee. Zune charges ~$2 to stream a movie and I watch less than five a month; but when I do watch something, I prefer it to be newer movies that I skipped at the theater and that was y biggest complaint against Netflix.
