Every once in a while, a red envelope appears in our mailbox; one present that has the possibility of entertainment. It holds the promise of unwatched films on a list so long that we've long forgotten what lies beyond the first 5 entries. All we know is that Season One of Battlestar Gallactica is on the top of the list and once more when we carefully tear off the seal, it is not the movie in our hands. What do we get? Another documentary. It's the modern lump of coal. I check our queue only to see that there is a "very long wait" for the first DVD of the Battlestar series. I don't buy this explanation. I think Netflix has a list of good children as well as naughty ones. Somehow, I've gotten put on the naughty list and they just don't want to give me the DVD I've requested. It's the third time they've passed over to the next choice on our list and I just can't think it's a coincidence. We used to be on the good list. We've gotten just released movies with record speed and thought that the complaining of others about Netflix was completely unfounded. Alas, how quickly it can turn.
You better watch out, you better not cry,
Don't report a scratched disc, I'm telling you why.
Netflix knows the movies you want.
