Netflix: A Mixed Bag

Just tried a trial of the streaming service "Netflix" for a couple of days. Just cancelled the trial. Wasn't that impressed overall. Not as big of a selection as I was lead to believe. Problems with some streams (probably because of my bandwidth though). Decided the streaming service wouldn't be worth the $8/month. Will stick with Dish, DVDs and Blu-rays for my overall TV viewing.

An Overview

1. Anything black & white I watched seemed to stream fine.
2. Seasons of "A Bit of Fry & Laurie", the movie "What's Up Tiger Lily", episodes of "Ren & Stimpy" and "Mystery Science Theater 3000", video was "stuttery", even though audio was fine.
3. "Penn & Teller's Bullsh*t" played fine however, when episodes of season 9 of "Saturday Night Live" buffered like hell!

May try Netflix again IF we ever get more bandwidth, but until then... Meh!
