Livejournal user samuraizergling has another great reason to use Netflix. He works third shift, so on nights he's not working, he's up all night, which makes weekends "a real drag. All the bars close at 2am, and you can only do so much late-night grocery shopping. And after all the laundry is done, and you have had all the baths one can usefully take, we enter the Long Dark Teatime of the Soul. The time from 4am until about 9am when stuff starts to open again. Nothing on TV except infomercials and bad movies."
Now thanks to Netflix, he can watch fresh movies or TV episodes on DVD every weekend.
