The Dirty Dozen
But perhaps more importantly, will Netflix (one of the few original dot com companies to survive) be around in another five years?
You had me thinking there for a moment that there was actually a film obeying the usual Scottish play stricture.
I'm still a Netflix subscriber, both to streaming (which I'm probably not getting my money's worth of at the moment, but is of persistent value, especially for television) and to their one-DVD-at-a-time mailing subscription. Currently at home are Foolish Wives
, and soon to be here is Tropical Malady
which was far away and so they sent the von Stroheim first.
I like the idea of exhausting my Netflix streaming needs and opting for a disc only service, but I think I'm still some time away from that.
Hulu has a very impressive streaming collection, with a pretty deep bench of current and past television series along with, of course, the Criterion Collection, but I've only recently added that service, about two months ago.
You really do need cable to keep up with the best current series, though, should there be any for which you aren't willing to wait. (Not you
specifically.) Can't watch the best drama on television - The Americans
- without some kind of cable access.
