I started watching Buffy around season 2 and watched Angel from the beginning. Loved them and have several seasons on DVD. But I couldn't get into Firefly. It just didn't interest me.

I'm on the blockbuster plan sorta similar to netflix and recently I've enjoyed

Grand Hotel (30's film academy award winner and I thought it was lovely.)
Sword of Doom (japanese samurai movie.)
It Happened One Night (30's screwball comedy. Fun!)
Marty (50's film also won academy awards with good reason.)
and last but not least, last night I watched
The Secret Life of Words very moving. Shot in a way that reminds me of Breaking the Waves

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)

Not a movie, but I've been watching the Red Dwarf series lately and find it absolutely hilarious!

I don't have Netflix but I DO have Blockbuster.com. It's very similar. I'm on a 3-at-a-time unlimited plan and I pay $17.99/month. The awesome thing about blockbuster.com is that once I get a movie and watch it I can either drop it in the mail or take it to a local blockbuster and exchange it for a free movie rental. That way there's no downtime where I'm without a movie.

I have a feeling that the mailing turnaround time for blockbuster.com is a bit slower than netflix. My friends that do netflix have recieved movies as fast as 3 days after they sent in their watched movies. The fastest mail turnaround time for me has been 5 days.

I've had the same movies forever, and need to update my address with them, but...

With Netflix, I would drop off a movie on Monday and have a new movie on Wednesday. It hardly ever took longer. They also periodically email you to see how quickly you are getting your movies, so that they can continually improve their service.

The only time I've ever heard this said was when the person only saw the original airing on Fox. The original airing was shown out of order, mis-represented in the marketing, it was constantly being pre-empted (so viewers couldn't find it to watch) and some of the episodes were never shown at all. They didn't even show the pilot until the series had already been cancelled.

Everyone who has watched it from the beginning on DVD has said it's one of the best shows they've ever seen.

I really like to knit to netflix also... I have the 4 dvd plan.
Try going thru the top 100 movies and pick some from them.
That's what I did when I got my subscription.

I've watched all 5 seasons of Six Feet Under(took me 6 months), Dead Like Me(great series/too bad it was only 2 seasons), House(sexy and cranky), The Office US(funniest show on tv), and now I'm watching Monk.

I've watched Leonadro DiCaprio movies(The Departed, Blood Diamond, Titantic), John Cusack movies(Serendipity, Being John Malcovich, Runaway Jury, Identity), Matt Damon(The Talented Mister Ripley, Bourne movies, The Good Shepard), Denzel Washington(I love his smile), etc

The Secret Window.....Stephen King's novela adapted into a movie starring Johnny Depp is a great movie.

DragonTush posted this website that she watches tv shows on, there are a lot of shows there. Right now I am watching Tru Calling (another show that should not have been cancelled), Big Love is there, Firefly (I will watch that to check it out), and British shows are also there. The name of the post is So I sit in front of the computer and...

I watch TCM a lot and they don't re-run very often. I absolutely LOVE old movies. My favorite is, "12 Angry Men" with Henry Fonda.
