I love Netflix as well! I pop in a movie and knit! Sometimes, I don't feel in the mood for the movies we have, so I give myself a week. If I don't watch it, I send it back- I can always put it back in my queue and get it again.
The best starter advice... Go on the site and look at the top 100 movies, you can find great movies all in one place.
PS- Love the Highlander...and Office Space (I need a jump to conclusions mat)
Sheldon Cooper: It's very simple. Scissors cuts paper. Paper covers rock. Rock crushes lizard. Lizard poisons Spock. Spock smashes scissors. Scissors decapitates lizard. Lizard eats paper. Paper disproves Spock. Spock vaporizes rock. And as it always has, rock crushes scissors.
