Online movie rental during the holidays sucks

Netflix LogoIt’s that time of year again, time to wait endlessly for your next movie to arrive in the mail. Normally it takes one day for Netflix to receive a disc and one more day for me to get the next one, but half-way through December it’s been two days so far and Netflix hasn’t got my last movies, and I expect I won’t get the new ones until the weekend. It happens this way every year about this time. Every industry realizes this is the slowest time of the year so they make preparations, but apparently the online movie rentals either can’t figure it out or simply can’t do anything about it.

So what do you do? Add a disc to your account for a month to compensate? Make sure you get the movies in the mail before the day’s shipments go out? If you have any ideas to get my next films here earlier, I’m all ears.

  1. My on-line rentals lately have sucked too. I think it has a lot to do with the TV writers being on strike. TV really blows more so than usual. But almost all of my DVD’s in my queue are ‘short wait’, ‘long wait’, or ‘very long wait’. what the #$%^& is that!?! I’m getting sick of it and am very close to canceling my account.
