NetFlix fun

Kip introduced us to NetFlix awhile back, and it has kept us entertained. I've discovered that I really enjoy watching great TV shows that I never saw when they first aired.

For example, I watched The West Wing from start to finish. What a great show and even somewhat educational! It seemed especially apt at times, comparing the fiction to current politics.

My friend Kathy suggested the lesser-known Ballykissangel, and I'm now enthralled. Come to think of it, she probably started me thinking about watching The West Wing, so I really should pay attention to her recommendations.

John and I get huge kicks out of The Office and Monk, even though each can make us uncomfortable for the characters in different ways. They certainly make us laugh, and I love watching John laugh.

Not a NetFlix item (because Kip loaned me the boxed sets), but I'm nearing the end of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. Also *loved* the short-lived Firefly series. Big Joss Whedon fan here! (Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, anyone?)

Biggest praise: Ability to change your address whenever you like. Our NetFlix envelopes follow us to Montana, Colorado, etc...

Biggest beef: Most seasons of The Amazing Race aren't available. Why not? I'd watch all of them! We missed the first few years when we lived in France.

What has been in your queue that you particularly liked?
