On Crack

I’m not sure if this represents a critical review or not, but I got a DVD from Netflix that arrived looking like this.

I’m almost certain it’s a metaphor; for what, I don’t know. It's Sex in the City, season 2, disc 1.


Speaking of which, I found a fairly comprehensive and interesting article on the real Mr. Big.

If you're a member of Netflix long enough, you're bound to get a few damaged discs.

And I found the real Mr. Big article very interesting and read the entire thing. Having lived in NYC and being a native New Englander I have always found it funny that an exodus to Vermont would be viewed as banishment by New Yorkers.

I loved Chris Noth as Mr Big on S&TC. But my love was for his beauty and style, nothing to do with his character. After reading about the real Mr Big, I find I don't really like him. Of course, I don't like those kind of men anyway. The ones who equate a beautiful woman with a flash car.

He became more human when I read about his pain over the loss of his son (how does a child fall out of the back of a car on the highway? That is very strange. I see now why he is so careful to watch his daughter. A father at 49? That is pretty old but he still married a beautiful, busty woman. He didn't change too much.

That is so upsetting that your DVD came to you in that fashion. I am thinking of joining th Blockbuster Mail-in service. You can return your DVD's to any store and rent them via mail and in the store. I think it is about the same rate as Netflix.

Good article on Mr. Big, and I echo flix and ffeur's comments . . . I have had some, but not too much, trouble with damaged cds from netflix - the worst was The Spy Who Came in from the Cold disc that w/n play the last 5 minutes of the movie . . .

I got tired of Netflix long ago and switched to Blockbuster. I get way fewer damaged discs, now that you bring it up. Also, being able to return them in the store is great.

I've been a netflix'r for a couple years now and I've recieved only 1 cracked disc. And I'd say only a couple others were fully or partly unplayable. They send you a replacement pretty fast if I remember correctly. I'm a big fan of netflix because of the great selection and the good service. Hopefully your replacement DVD has reached you.

Oooh, that looks like it was done on purpose. I haven't gone to Netflix. I prefer to seeth with rage while looking for anything good at my local Blockbuster.

Ticket prices really need to come down. I'd much prefer to watch a movie at the theater.
