    I think Netflix has to forcibly move more people in streaming to expand the subscriber base to use as leverage when negotiating with studios which would improve then improve the library. It's the Studios that are limiting their streaming library as they see it as an existential threat to other forms of Video on Demand, plus the studios don't want Netflix to have pricing power like Apple has with Itunes.

    Time to cancel. 60% price increase on top of the terrible streaming selection, 30 day delay on new releases, and the single Blu-Ray in my queue 13 Assassins having a very long wait.
    LOL. As a kid I missed half the episodes from sleeping in on Saturday so I was pretty psyched about this. Got halfway through the first episode before shutting it off. I guess you can't go back.

    Agreed. I didn't find anything interesting on their streaming I wanted to watch, so I'm going to their DVD-only subscription.

    I had knee surgery last week and can't do anything so Netflix streaming has been a godsend. I've watched a lot of stuff so far and really enjoyed "Exit Through the Gift Shop" and "Harry Brown."

    Let's keep the suggestions coming guys!

    Also, how could I forget Party Down? One of the best, and most overlooked shows of the past 5 years.

    Party Down is the shit.

    Such a short lived show, but every episode delivers the goods.

    The Lost Room was really awesome. One season miniseries. Unfortunately, it's not available on instant in the US. Played perfect in Chile. Of course, there are other ways to watch this show.

    I liked Warehouse 13 too, even though it got stupid campy sometimes and the last episode in season 4 was hit by the dumb stick. It still was interesting.

    Just saw the first episode of a BRitish show called The State Within. Pretty good. Only runs for 7 episodes though.
