Dear The Powers That Be at Netflix,
I'll be honest: I wasn't originally a huge fan of your instant streaming program.
We'd been satisfied members of your DVD mail program for a year or two when the instant streaming program was born. That year for Christmas we got a Wii, and found that we could stream movies and shows instantly to our TV. Back then, you had a weird and eclectic assortment of videos one could watch through instant streaming. Many of the movies were B list, C list, if not F list. Movies made with a budget that I'm sure did not exceed $10,000. Maybe not even $1,000.
Movies i'd never heard of.
Movies no good person would (or should) ever view.
There were some redeeming qualities to your instant streaming. You had all of Arrested Development in your queue (and we all know how much I love this show). You had a few movies from a decade or two ago that made me nostalgic. Hubby found some good documentaries. So it was not all bad.
Over time, this programming option became more popular. To appease the masses, your selection became more varied, more popular. More heard of. I appreciate that you've added recent/present television shows and a handful of worthwhile movies. I even find myself browsing your selection more, eager to find something to watch.
Then yesterday, while perusing your site, I found this:
The COMPLETE. SERIES.
All 19 episodes of teenagey angst, misanthropic beauty. Every faux plaid oversized button-up shirt. Every awkward moment. Every pressing issue. Every voiced-over narration that had spoken straight to my overwhelmed and wanting pre-teen heart.
Every minute of Jordan Catalano.
Have I at all mentioned how much I *loved* the 90's?
So kudos, Netflix. You're finally starting to get it right.
