I worked on you for hours and hours, researching, looking up ratings, reviews, and I was always secretly proud of you. You were a monument to a variety of interests both comedic and tragic. There was the intellectual foreign fare, the bloated superhero dramas, the horrible gay movies, the smut; the pleasures hidden between your lines were breathtaking.
You were the home of films I wanted my boyfriend to see and home of all the Ken Burns documentaries that nobody but me wanted to see. Every week I would forget what I had added and you would surprise me by showing up in my inbox in your bright red and happy trappings. Remember when I forgot what was on top of my DVD queue and an email was sent to me saying that Ghostbusters was on its way but I meant to move it out of the queue because I had just caught it somewhere else? I do.
Honestly I had two other Netflix member’s passwords because they thought I could add more movies to their DVD queue. Netflix, your customers entrusted me to entertain them with movie selections culled from your service. It brought us all together and made so many people happy.
But you’re gone now.
We’ll deal the best way we possibly can, by moving on, either to some Redboxes or our local video store or…hey I hear the Internet streams movies illegally now. Netflix DVD queue, you will be missed. MY Netflix DVD queue…we’ll always have Woody Allen’s Manhattan Murder Mystery.

RIP: My Netflix DVD Queue
