132. I don't know why people think there's too little available on streaming
I have 184 titles in my streaming queue. If I find out that something is about to go bye-bye, I move it to the top.

Here are the first twenty titles in my queue:

1. Michael Palin's Himalaya
2. New Street Law (British series)
3. Buddy (Norwegian film)
4. The Sting (Yeah, it's old, but I've never seen it.)
5. Ponyo
6. South of the Border
7. Frontline: Law and Disorder (missed this when it ran on PBS)
8. Dorm (Thai ghost story)
9. My Winnepeg
10. Vital (Japanese horror film)
11. The Other Conquest (the conquest of Mexico from the point of view of the Aztecs)
12. OSS117: Cairo: Nest of Spies (French comedy)
13. The Bothersome Man (Norwegian film)
14. Sherlock Holmes: The Eligible Bachelor (missed this when it ran on PBS)
15. Troubled Water (Norwegian film)
16. Green for Danger (classic British mystery)
17. Rembrandt's J'accuse (documentary)
18. King Lear (with Ian McKellen)
19. In Search of Beethoven
20. Omagh (drama about the troubles in Northern Ireland)

The first five are going away soon. However, if you are willing to look beyond the recent blockbusters and venture into TV series and foreign films, there is more to watch than I possibly have time for. (And much of what isn't on Netflix is on Hulu Plus, including the entire Criterion Collection of foreign classic films.

In addition, Acorn Media has a new limited streaming service with a rotating set of options. An annual member ship of about $27 gives you access.

On the DVD side, I'm currently on the two-at-a-time plan, but I may knock that down to one after I finish the TV series I have at the top of my queue.
