Banana Split

[this is good] You've intrigued me with your description of Montenegro. I'd add it to my own queue but you've got the only copy. :)I've got the same situation in reverse. Netflix is mine. When the boyfriend has a film request, I'll express my displeasure with a lot of heavy sighing and grumbling while I figure out where I could possibly fit it into the line-up.


[this is good] Our queue is about 200+ movies with the wife always shuffling things to the top. I finally decided to create my own queue and allot it one movie of the three included in our subscription level. If you really want to see something coming from NetFlix that you want to see, you may want to do the same.

:) My Wife modified "my" Netflix Queue only yesterday. We have the 3 movie program. So, I split off 1 of the movies for her to manage and left 2 for myself. This way, everyone can be happy and "we" don't need to change anything with my queue of movies. The ability to split the queue into 3 even might be interesting. 1 kids queue, 1 wife queue and 1 MAN queue!


At least you don't pay late fees for keeping it so long. My husband does the same thing at Blockbuster. He rents a movie, and then holds on to it because he hasn't watched it yet. In the meantime, the late fees are accumulating until it would have been cheaper to buy the darn thing in the first place.


LOL! And I get nervous if I've had a movie for two weeks!


What about getting three at once? If you're going to have it so that it's Movie Choice 'A' Or Nothing, you might as well stick to cable, because that's what they offer. If you picked all the even ones, and he picked all the odd-numbered ones, and you had three at once, then there'd always be sort of a range of different stuff to choose from at movie time.


I've had Desparate Housewives Season 2, Disk 2 from Netflix for two months. I've also got Desparate Housewives Season 2, Disk 1 from Blockbuster, which I assume I've purschased at this point, since I've had it for three months.
I refuse to acknowledge that I just don't have time to watch them.
We have the 3-movie subscription and I try to do one kid flick and one scary/action movie each time. The third movie is reserved for me, but it's been stalled for two months now. I didn't realize you could do multiple queues.


You're going to owe him "Porky's" or something like that after this.

And this is why they invented separate queues. :)


Separate lists is good, and thanks for making me aware of the option.
The his, her's and their's model sounds very appealing (until there is no more unified "their's" and it becomes her's, her's, her's and his). However we seriously have a hard time managing the time to watch a single movie (we still haven't watched the last four hours of the Sopranos we have on DVRfrom last season)and I just don't think we can manage to see three (at twice the price). This might be a good time to mention how anti-subscription I am...

[this is good] We have this promblem at my house too, Dh has a limit to the "chic flicks" that he will watch in one week and goes in and messes the queue up. I


[this is good] now I'm curious too. but I'm pretty sure I won't find it in Kuala Lumpur *weep*

Cri de Coeur

[this is good] This was great! And...made me think twice about the whole subscription to Netflix feeling that something similiar would happen with the durn movie queue. :) And you mentioned, there's the trouble with finding the time to gather the fam around the tellie for a viewing. Again, a very fun/funny read.

Oh my goodness, I'm dying here laughing. We keep coming into the same pickle. I get something interesting, and I have no time to watch it alone (yes, we need to purchase one more dvd player), or vice versa. We held onto a couple movies so long, we lost them. We owned up, reported them lost - all our fault. It was a $40 plus Netflix monthly due month. Crying shame. Maybe someday we'll find the movies and I'll own them. Though I can't remember if they were even movies worth owning.
