    I love Netflix and am excited about many of the April additions, especially Fixer Upper Season 2. We don't have cable so a lot of our television watching is on Netflix. Some of what Netflix offers is older, but then again I don't have a $100+ cable bill to pay every month.

      Yeah, the savings are fantastic! And I'm glad Netflix is starting to carry non-serial shows like all of the new HGTV titles and what not. It's nice having something to watch when you just want something playing in the background. :)

      Yeah, movies are usually old. At least they're producing a lot of exclusives, most of which are pretty good.

      How come adding new shows to its library = getting worse? Or is there a different complaint that you have against Netflix?
