I was wondering how many movies everyone has in their netflix queue. I currently have 291. My wife has got 10-15 movies in there. The rest are mine.

I only have around 40. I find that after that, ranking them doesn't make sense. Also, at the current snail's pace of shipping, I wonder if I'll see 100 before 2002 begins.

I only have 15. I can't think of that much stuff I really wanna watch that I haven't already seen.

I have about 150 + about 20 in the reminder list that I still have to move. It's getting harder managing my queue since I'm on a modem. I guess your on broadband right? I wish NetFlix would put a Java thing in there so we can just drag 'n drop or something.

Insane? Hardly! You should always have at least 5 in your queue - to immediately replace those you've returned plus one extra in case one is not available. I have 80 - I'd forget what I want to see otherwise!

I usually have 30-35 titles in my queue but at least 2/3 are almost always "out of stock" while most "in stock" titles are the ones that are over 20 years old. It gets very frustrating when your top 15 choices are "out of stock" for months because people are too lazy to watch the movies and ship them back. If you can't watch a movie within a week of renting it you shouldn't be renting the title. Going to an unlimited time to keep the movies was the worst move Netflix made for customers. Of course it's great for them because the longer someone keeps a movie, the less they rent per month and the more money per disc Netflix ends up making.

Well, one I had to wait FOREVER to get was SEX AND THE CITY. I think it was so long (12-30 min episodes?) it took a while to watch.

I'm sure The Sopranos will be the same way. They should break up these sets into separate discs....
