So, for my graduation last year, my wonderful aunt and uncle got me literally the best present for a college kid ever: a subscription to Netflix. I had it in high school, but I shared the queue with my family (until I changed the account password so that I had total control, that is) and we only had subscribed to receiving movies through the mail. Then, when Netflix switched everything around and started to only offer the instant and mail-order programs separately, we canceled our subscription. Sure, I was heartbroken being as much of a movie buff as I am, but I got over it. Slowly and painfully. But then my world was righted once again when I received the instant subscription.
When you’re bored in college and left alone in your room for more than 15 minutes, Netflix instant streaming is easily the best way to spend your time. Plus, now that they’ve separated the mail and streaming programs, Netflix has practically added a million more shows and movies. The ones included in my little collage above are some of my most recently viewed. I plowed through the entire series of Grey’s Anatomy (I’m a machine.), and am currently on season three of Friday Night Lights (literally the best show around), and I like to throw on Say Yes to the Dress when I’m not focused enough to pay attention to an actual plot. No Strings Attached just happens to be an awesome movie that I’ve watched a couple of times, and Cadet Kelly? Well, that’s a classic. I unfortunately discovered during finals week that Netflix had unleashed many throwback movies and shows, including old Disney movies and Nickelodeon cartoons. Jackpot. Plus, they even update shows that are still on the air with new episodes from the current season, like The Office. Not to mention the fact that it has the entire series of Law and Order: SVU. Boo ya.
Clearly, I have a severe addiction to Netflix Instant. Just ask my roommate. It’s practically all I do.
