Netflix

We already belonged to Netflix, but on the lowest possible plan that allowed streaming — $8.99 to have one DVD out at a time, but unlimited streaming through our computers and the TiVo. We could also stream through the Xbox 360, but neither of us has a gold membership.

We’ve just upgraded to the 3-DVD plan, so we can always have a Scott item, a Missy item, and an all-Meyer item out at any given time. It’s $16.99, which takes an $8 nibble out of the over-$70 savings from canceling cable.

If anyone out there wants to be our Netflix friend, I think this invitation should get you there. But I’m not sure; the friends system doesn’t seem particularly user-friendly. And I still can’t upload a user picture without getting an error. But as long as the discs come in a timely fashion, I’m not going to worry too much about our profile.

So in addition to the 2009 Red Dwarf miniseries that showed up in the mailbox yesterday, we’ve bumped a couple of other items to the top of the queue: Scott’s ordered up season 1 of A Bit of Fry and Laurie, and I’ve opted for the horrible-wonderful classic 1980 roller-skating musical Xanadu. I haven’t seen it in probably 20 years, and I expect it to be just awful. But hopefully it’s that grade of awful that goes around the horn to become awesome.

Xanadu: terrible, horrible, magical!
