I ordered Netflix 6 months ago, so I could watch an occasional movie. It turns out that all of their movies were rejects from hell. All the movies sucked, and the ones that were any good were former blockbusters like Pretty Woman, from 20yrs ago. I still subscribe because my grandson enjoys the cartoons, but now it looks like they have a decent program on. Now hopefully they can carry Southland.
