Ronnie.. I have a PS3 in the basement.. thanks for the info... you have just convinced me to join! I'm still keeping my purchase of the "Amazing Stories" DVD since it was so cheap, but the future looks Netflix bright.

I only signed up for Netflix maybe a month ago....unfortunatly I don't have a Wii or PS3 to set it up on my tv.....but stuff plays really good quality on my computer. I only pay $13.99 for two dvd movies plus unlitmited instant watch. I'm loving it! and have watched so much stuff so far....my queue is so full of movies I can't catch up and I just keep adding [Smile]

I can't wait to hear what you guys think of Amazing Stories..........yay!!

I just watched from Season 2

Welcome to My Nightmare:
A cute story about a boy obsessed with horror movies.
starring in small roles Steve Antin, Christina Applegate and Robin Lively It was awesome!

I'm going to try and watch a bunch of these this weekend!

Valley, you are going to love the Instant Watch feature of Netflix. It's like a gigantic version of cable On Demand for a much, much cheaper price (I have the $8.99/month subscription). Make sure you request the instant streaming disc for the Wii on Netflix if you haven't already done that.

Muffy, yes you will need to have a wireless router installed in your home. I bought one for like $30 at Target.

Anybody watch any? I'm dying here [Big Grin] I'm gonna try and finish up Season 2.....gotta admit a few of Season 2 are actually not as good....Moving Day with Stephen Jeffreys is a cool idea but sorta boring.

Also, received my Netflix instant watch disc today.. loving how easy it all was to setup. Thanks.. Muffy, Veronica, and Ronnie for the help.

That's awesome Valley! There's so many movies and shows to choose from...you're going to find yourself browsing through them all for hours.

I watched the 1st two episodes of season 1. Liked them both a lot...The second episode was hilarious! I loved the nerdy girl! She looked really familiar to me.

Wasn't she in the car with Tim Robbins in 'The Sure Thing'?

Watched the first two episodes yesterday.
I was surprised that the episodes are so short,
only 25 mins each.

Anyway, Ghost Train was so-so sentimental Spielberg stuff.
Nothing special plotwise but nicely done.

The Main Attraction hit the jackpot!
Awesome episode, lots of laughs and a cool cast.
Pure 80s teen magic!

I´m going to check out more eps later.

I watched episodes 3 and 4 yesterday.

Alamo Jobe had an interesting time warp story and starred Kelly "The Black Stallion" Reno.
He only acted in three movies plus this Amazing Stories episode
and after you read his bio, you know the reason why.

Kelly Reno bio

Mummy Daddy was a very funny episode with a strong cast.
Tom Harrison was great as the Mummy, you really care what´s going to happen to him.
And you haven´t even seen the real guy under the mummy costume [Cool]

Supporting actors like Bronson Pinchot, Brion James and Tracey Walter always deliver.
Walter´s character had a cool trailer with movie posters on the wall.

to be continued...

this is among the top on my "Must Have" list. In that I mean I Must Have every season. My friend was kind enough to buy me the 1st season for my BDay...but i'm definitely getting the rest.

Watched episode 5 "The Mission" yesterday.

It was a cool Spielberg penned war story with an all-star cast.
Starring Kevin Costner, Casey Siemaszko, Kiefer Sutherland and some other familiar faces.
The lovely Karen Kopins also has some screentime.

This was a longer (45 minutes) episode.
Poor little Casey is in trouble again [Cool]

How the time flies...

Watched episodes 6-8 yesterday.

"The Amazing Falsworth" with Gregory Hines and Richard Masur.

A serial killer story, the two on screen murders must have been pretty shocking back in the day.
Decent acting, yammy Kiss Kiss -bar neon lights, "it´s all in the hands".

"Fine Tuning"

Great to see Matthew Laborteaux and Gary Riley.
The beginning was good but it turned out to be a very silly episode.
Stupid aliens [Cool]

"Mr. Magic"

Old magician who has lost his act gets one final chance to be hip and cool.
Nice little story starring Sid Caesar and Leo Rossi.

Episodes 9 & 10

"Guilt Trip"

Guilt takes a vacation, meets Love and they fall in love.
Directed by Burt Reynolds and starring funny guys Dom DeLuise and Charles Durning and lovely Loni Anderson.
Nice little idea but wasn´t that special after all.

"Remote Control Man"

Now this was a crazy story.
Directed by Bob "Porky´s" Clark and Starring Sydney Lassick, Nancy Parsons, Jeff Cohen, Dirk Benedict, Gary Coleman
and other 80s tv-stars. Even KITT crashes in! Surprisingly wicked stuff!
